What's in your......

JUNK DRAWER!!!


We all have one--some junkier than others--but we all have one. A drawer where the family has free reign to "throw stuff in"...things that don't have a real home. Most "junk drawers" that I have come across reside in the kitchen, but I have seen them in the garage or the laundry room. Where is yours???

As you see, ours is in the kitchen. There is nothing really crazy in it (shock you??) but there are a bunch of odds and ends. Chapstick, pens, paper, nailclippers, soothers!! , and my ziplocies. One of my biggest peeves is when Mike throws "stuff" (that has another home) (usually guitar related) in it. He always quips "but it is a junk drawer right?" .. Lol... "Yes, but those belong somewhere else!!! --SEE I DO have a problem!!! (Please don't tell him my chapsticks belong in my makeup case! lol-- I use those multiple times a day, so they need to be handy okay????)

Amy,
Are you for hire? I have organized my junk drawer a time or 2...in the kitchen, by the way, but not as wonderful as this....can I move in?

If, your whole house is this organized, then I need to hire you, because, wow! You are all so neat!
I personally LOVE it, but am also slipping into covetousness!

Ok you seriously need to do this as a business. I can't believe that's your junk drawer. Mine is soooooo disorganized. You have inspired me though to organize under my sink. Maybe the junk drawer is next. Inspirational you are for sure....

Your junk drawer is so organized! mine is a mess! It has chapstick tubes as well, along with pens, tape, a nutcracker, aquadoodle pens, those little corn cob handles and a little of everything else. :-)

Ok Amy Stop it!
Your junk drawer is more organized than my whole house.

Oh never mind! I just looked around the room I am in.Hahahaha
You really should do this for a living. I could be your first customer.

Hahaha... oh, my little flute! How I love you! When are you coming to Sarnia to organize my life? :) Although, I don't even HAVE drawers, so a junk drawer isn't in my future... does a junk counter count? :) Miss you...

Tammy said...

Ok, I organized under my sink!!!!! It feels sooooooo good. Now just to keep it that way.

Amy said...

Lol..you guys are very funny!! My whole house does NOT look like this...I am in renovations of my basement..so not alot of things have a "place" but....once it is finished, if I have any say (which I do!! lol) it will be organized..
THe kids rooms now that is another story!!
Mo--I'm ALL yours!!
Joy--junk counter is a NO-NO!! I'll be up soon!

I'm so glad I've motivated some of you--but I think it's "spring"--even though it's snowing...it's just around the corner!!!!!

(P.s. Mike controls the garage--and it is FILTHY!! you can't even move!! )

One thing about being a single mom is that when I put things in their place they stay there. I to have everything in it's place but am never home to more or use any of it!! LOL

Wow Amy! I've never seen such a nice junk drawer. I just can't imagine keeping one like that. I guess I'll always have things to strive for that way eh?! Wow!!!!
