I think every kitchen in the world has a junk drawer. What's in yours?
don't actually have one.....have a junk room though. Its called my bedroom. lol
duct tape, screw drivers, hammer, nails, screws, pliers, batteries, nothing too exciting.
We actually have 3. :redface: One contains manuals to all the appliances in the house, scissors, scotch tape and a Sharpie. The other contains phone books and take out menus and the third has a mish-mash of things like 5 year old flower seed packets, keys to locks we no longer own, Campbell's Soup labels for the church Sunday school. rubber bands and anything that is small and has no other home.

You clearly don't live in New York where the average kitchen is 4 feet by 6 feet-there's no space for a drawer in there what with the stove, the refrigerator and the sink.
My junk drawers are the ones I wear when lounging around and not expecting visitors:yup:
Not too much, just the typical pens, pencils, old rubber bands, maybe a train schedule here and there, screws, nuts (no, not THAT kind), bolts, little stuff that people have picked up from the floor which they step on but for some reason don't want to throw away... :biggrin1:
I got one of those 20 question games on my coffee table right now, lol. I also have a junk drawer some odd things are batteries I am not sure if there dead or not, screws, ties, electrical tape, wipes, stuff like that.
I used to have a junk drawer. Now, I have a junk storage tub.
...all kinds of junk.

Too bad we can't have one of these drawers for one's mental life. It would come in handy at times. Just stick problems in there and just forget about them, the miscellaneous problem drawer - the proverbial out of sight out of mind drawer for your mental health.
A telephone extension cord? :dunno: Seems like the last time u cleaned out that drawer was 1986...
I only keep some lube and a few magnums in mine - never know when u need to hoist someone on the counter and... :adam4:
