Re: Do you have a "junk" drawer at your house?

1 in the desk, 2 in the china cabinet, 1 in the kitchen, a small tote in the laundry room, and half the garage!  It has all been sorted recently.

@retiredatlast 

Thank you for this fun thread.

 

I have junk drawers. Not only are there useful items in them, but sentimental useless ones too.

I have always kept a junk drawer in my kitchen.  Polled some of my CA friends and most of them have never heard of keeping one.  Wondering if this an East coast thing, as I grew up on the East coast and moved to CA in my 30's.  I keep all the odds and ends that have no other place to go.  Extra scissors, markers, tape measures, a handy screw driver, pens and pencils, catnip for the kitty, extra packs of sugar free chewing gum, paper clips, food bag clips, scotch tape, box openers, packing tape, and many other miscellaneous items.  I have a very large drawer and I have organizers in the drawer to keep keep things separate.  I don't think I could ever get rid of this kitchen staple for me as I always seem to be going to that drawer for something many times a day.  Any one else have one?  And what do you keep in yours?


@retiredatlast @maybe it is an east coast thing .  I certainly have one where we keep scissors, twist ties from bread, greeting cards so I have them on hand for bdays, thank you's etc.  tape , pens, clips for chips, and many other things that don't go really anywhere else so it goes in thev"junk" drawer!

Yup.  One in the kitchen and one of my dresser drawers is junk drawer for my personal stuff.  And then there's that junk box under my bathroom sink for all those beauty products I'm never going to use.

I have junk drawers. I open a drawer to look for something, and I’m surprised as to what I have accumulated. I believe I have at least one junk drawer in each room of my house.
