Oh my goodness! Junk drawers! Every house should have one. I have a junk cabinet in the hallway that looks quite antique... but is filled drawer to drawer with stuff. Batteries, light bulbs...

My junk drawer is about like yours Lynn! Except a bit messier. I have bags of receipts and school papers from the kids in mine too. Chad's is full of small tools and various kinds of tapes and batteries.

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier this evening and leaving your sweet comment. Please come again...you're always welcome.

I've enjoyed my visit here to your blog too.

Oh girl...I have more than one junk drawer. LOL! I guess we all need a place to put things out of the way, but close enough to put on hands on them when the time comes. Good idea for a post though.

It looks like we enjoy some of the same blogs :-)

I haven't thought of a junk drawer in years. Always used to have one but in the last two homes I resolved to never do that again. It's been a little over 15 years now without one. Having a garage and a studio really helps.

I have about the same as you,but I bought a cute divider at wwal-mart. It comes with labels to fit in the areas so you put it back in that space. Yea right lol. I do try hard.

Hi Lynn, My junk drawers are pretty good at the moment. (we just moved back in June) so they were very recently cleaned out. I found though, as I was cleaning them out a few months back, I had saved all these menus from all kinds of restaurants. Not just one from each place...but several menus from each restaurant or cafe. As if, I was afraid I would run out and not have a menu when I needed it?? Kinda funny what I noticed that I had been collecting without even realizing it. : )

Hi Lynn, Actually I'm very proud of my junk drawer -- very neat and tidy. However, I have a junk ROOM, currently home for a bed, two dressers, a table, all my faux flower arrangements, deck chair cushions, the ironing board, a vanity for a bathroom that does not as yet exist in my house, and my daughter's drum set!

Whew, I really need to clean that out!

I tried to get one of those organizers for my junkdrawer. That does not make sense does it. An organizer for your junk! Have great weekend.

PS Lynn, not only did I discover that I collected many copies of menus but my husband we found out, as we cleaned out our attic...is a box hoarder. Empty boxes mind you, boxes from electronics and such that were purchased 10 years ago. The electronics were long gone but the boxes remained. :) Boxes we would never again in our lives use. It is funny to see what people collect and why.

I have a few junk drawers and they're junky. No rhyme or reason to what's in there. Anything from lotion to ornament hangers to old birthday cards. It truly is Pandora's box.


Dena said...

I just counted...I have 5 drawers in various places with different "junk" Oh Lordy, I need to do something about that! Time for a cleaning and organizing day for sure.

Susie Q said...

I have 2 in our kitchen, one cabinet in our kitchen, one shelf in my bedroom armoire...and I am not brave enough to show them right now! They are all in need of a good cleaning!

HELP!!! *laugh*
