I have 3 drawers in the kitchen and 3 in the laundry room. One kitchen drawer contains cooking tools (ladle, large spoons, large knives, spatulas, etc.), the 2nd contains our tableware and small knives. The 3rd is definately a junk drawer: small box with emery boards & lipsticks, small mirror, carton of pennies, lipstick case for purse, 3 plastic caps for bowls, toothpicks, 2 antibacterial hand gels, 2 purse pill boxes, dental floss, "Tide to Go", instructions for coffee pot, bandaids, small funnel, change purse with special coins, meat pounder, kitchen scissors, thermometer for roasts, small comb, small knife sharpener, cleaning cloth, rolling pin, egg beater, 2 sets of salad forks and spoons, baster (these last things are here because they fit in the drawer).
This is a junk drawer, for sure.
In the laundry room, the first drawer contains 3 hammers,5 screwdrivers, pliers, wrench, tape measure, small jar paint, dust cloths, box of tacks, cell phone charger, & 2 pks of towel grips & hooks. I would call this my tool drawer.
Second drawer holds carving tools, candy thermometers, Qtips, balls of string, knife sharpener, cheesecloth, picture hangers, 2 small picture frames, more toothpicks, flashlite, frozen food lables. This drawer is not full.
The 3rd drawer holds paper napkins, aprons, guest towels, and coasters. This drawer is full.
One question I have is "why are junk drawers so awful?", and another is "if I change the name of the drawer, does that make it better?"
Are these all junk drawers? Do you have any? If not, where do you keep all that kind of stuff?
