The things you may need in a pinch but don't necessarily want to have a "spot" for, but you don't want to have to hunt for it either.
My junk drawer(s) contain a hammer, rubber bands, thumb tacks (ouch), stuff like that. Well, at least that's what the one in the kitchen contains.
Um - one of the junk drawers in the kitchen.
I actually have two in the kitchen. The other is in my "desk" - and that has take out menus, pens, paper clips, staples, scissors, more take out menus & a ton of crap I didn't feel like dealing with.
Anyone else have this issue??
|Trust me, mine's NOT this neat and organized|
I have attempted - several times - to go through my drawers of "stuff" and clean it up. Usually that happens when the drawer will no longer shut completely. I swear, it's like a friggin' treasure hunt!!
Can I part with my newly found treasures? Or my old "keepsakes" from God knows when?? NO, of course not - that's why I have so many darn junk drawers!
Yes, I know - all this from a self proclaimed neat freak... Well yes, but you do know that drawers & closets have doors on them for a reason. To hide the crap that is piling up & I don't want to deal with. Things I won't deal with now or probably ever.
In these attempts to deal with my stuff - I don't get very far. I do find papers (and last year's Christmas receipts) that can actually be thrown away - but sometimes it's a veritable treasure trove of holy CRAP look what I found & WOW, THAT'S where that went! Woo hooooo!!
|Not his actual garage, this one may actually be cleaner|
Oh, and add motorcycles
Mostly, my house is pretty clean at first view (unless the girls have ravaged it in some way).
It's all about the presentation.
Just DO NOT open the closets or junk drawers and you'll be safe.
Thank you for reading my blog!!
Big smoochies xxoo
