for those of us with junk drawers...name one thing in it. Why is it there? Where could or should it be?

I have a lot of stuff in my junk drawer, but on top are some gel pens. I bought them on sale at staples and there they sit. I honestly can't think of any other place for them. My junk drawer has small things in ziploc bags. lol

Oh Sara, I love those gel pens.

I have quite a bit in my junk drawer because I don't really have a lot of kitchen cupboards in this house. When I open it the first thing you see are rubber rings for canning and a map.

I just went to check and the first thing I saw was a note pad and some erasers, they should be in the school/computer room. Mind you there was also, nails, screws, elastics, small hammer, pictures and on and on and on. Thank goodness I just have ONE junk drawer now.:smball:

I have things like rubberbands (I use these instead of chip clips, roll bags of chips, crakers, brown sugar, ect and put a rubberband on it to keep it closed) batteries, birthday candles, little bags of screws and brads, and lots of junk too !!!!!!!!!:D

I have one in the kitchen, lots of hardware stuff, screws, nails etc

I have 3 in the dining room. Originally I think they were meant to hold silverware and the like. I have a built in China hutch, but those drawers are the catchall for everything that we drop on the dining room table!
I do have ideas for these, one is SUPPOSED to have wrapping, and stationary supplies, the other is SUPPOSED to be candles and matches, things like that. The other is for scissors, pens pencils etc, but there is never a pen or a pair of scissors in there ! Go figure.

A tape measure, paper clips, matches, cables and cords (no idea what they belong to), batteries... Not too much, but we just moved in so give us time. :D
