We all have them. Some people have only one. (amateurs!)
I have at least three. Maybe it’s because I’m an overachiever. Or maybe it’s because I’ve lived in this house with 3 kids that I’ve had more stuff to hide in drawers.
That’s right. I’m talking about the universal existence of a junk drawer.
That stuff we’re afraid to throw away because we will need it. And according to everyone’s friend Murphy, you’ll need it right after you toss it out.
Recently, I was able to clean out one of those drawers.
I hadn’t planned to, but the hubbinator was making iced tea in the tea maker. He claims the pot was pushed tightly against the brewer but let’s just say the tea ended up on the counter and not the pot because of mysterious forces. He even made tea on the stove to show the brewer how it was done.
Which meant that a large quantity that wasn’t on the floor or counter ended up in the drawer.
I’ll confess it made the decision of what to keep and what to toss that much easier. And now I have only two more drawers to go. But don’t tell the hubbinator. I’ll clean ’em out on my time, or just dump the contents into a box and move it to our next house:D.
Until next time.
