It's time for installment two of the What's In My.... series, so today I'm sharing the super exciting contents of my junk drawer. I actually have many junk drawers around my house, but for the purposes of this reveal, I chose the one in my kitchen desk. It may look fairly organized, but after pulling things out to photograph, I realized it clearly needs a serious overhaul. Why do I even have most of this stuff?
Apparently I'm good at organizing unnecessary, random items. For example:
A hole punch, and not one, but two, pencil compasses. Pretty sure these have not actually been removed from the junk drawer in many years. Nobody uses a stopwatch anymore. Most likely the headphones don't work, because teenage boys don't throw things away, they leave them on the counter, and they end up in the junk drawer. And that ipod is an antique. I could probably sell it on ebay for historical purposes.
More strange items. The rabies tag that should probably be attached to my actual dog. An old mail key? I cannot remember the last time I used a tape measure. Reminders of childhood past: two shiny rocks, and a coin from "Ye Olde Curiosity Shop" in Seattle. Which is a super cool place, and everyone should go there at least once, to see the mummies and shrunken heads.
I have never been to Big Bend Community College for Commercial Pilot Training, so no idea where this ruler came from. Extra 9V batteries are an essential - when your smoke detector starts chirping at 2am, you don't want to be searching for new batteries. A deck of cards. Miscellaneous "hardware" stuff that comes out of my husband's pockets at the end of the day, and finds its way to the junk drawer.
Finally, some essential items. Colored pens, blingy scissors, and pretty post it notes. I use these almost every day.
Mike Wazowski and a Smurf, circa early 2000's. A stress reliever ball. You're supposed to roll it around in your palms, but I can tell you that it does not work. Readers, because I'm old and blind and have them all over the house. But at least they have a cute floral print.
Well then. Hopefully you're still awake. I'll be over here, cleaning out this drawer. I mean, there's junk, and then there's junk that's really trash and should be thrown out.
Head on over to Joy's blog to see what's in her junk drawer, and don't forget to come back tomorrow for the kick off of Summer Style. Can't wait to see what everyone's wearing!
