I like to think I'm reasonably tidy and organised these days, and I know I've spoken of my junk drawer before - the time I trapped £20 inside, but I'm at it again. It was beyond a joke.
When I first got myself and the house (our old house) organised I didn't have a junk drawer, everything had a place, but I decided here it might be nice to have a rummage place to stash stuff. Not to mention the fact that the toolbox etc lives in the garage and occasionally it's just too much faff to go out there just to return one item.
The drawer is small, measuring 42 x 31.5 x 8cm. But it still holds a lot of stuff. Stuff including 2 RLWC 2013 tickets, 15 batteries, a clock needing a battery but not one of the 15 I have, 4 receipts (less than I thought there would be), 3 appointment cards for my haircut, but not the one for my next appointment, 7 expired vouchers, 18 keys, 2 torches, a 12 year old tin of vaseline (we've lived here for just under 4 years), 5 postcards, 6 pens, 5p, 2 foreign coins (from places we've never visited), 6 buttons and 5 glasses cleaning cloths.
It's now tidier but I still managed to add yet another calculator, a coin, a pair of scissors and a tape measure to the contents. I thought I could do without a junk drawer but really I just need to be more strict with paper.
