Junk drawer

Go ahead and head to your junk drawer. Don’t clean… just observe. Now its time to answer some tough questions… so get your affairs in order.

<strong>1. Is it in the kitchen? If not, where? If so, anywhere you would move it if strarting over?</strong>

No. There is no room in the kitchen for a junk drawer. I have junk drawer in my bedroom and I think Julie has one too. Really, the whole junk drawer concept falls apart at The Farm due an incredible lack of cohesive organization. The kitchen and living areas generally has it’s shit together but my bedroom is about as neat and tiddy as a 16 year-old boys without the trash and leftover pizza boxes and fast food wrappers.

<strong>2. Do you have any CR2032’s in there? Before you google it, just know you need some, stat. Everything small runs on them. Including your sister.</strong>

Yep. And a few other sizes to fit in various remotes and other devices like my glucometer and self-stick remote control and the car stereo’s remote. I put one in something in the kitchen the other day.

<strong>3. What’s your favorite thing in there?</strong>

Probably my “iFixIT” tool kit built to fix techy kind of things.<strong>4. What’s the dumbest thing?</strong>Way too much old used tech things like cords that go to nothing and old, old Nextel phones. Useless.

<strong>5. Let’s say I were breaking in, what would I they steal?</strong>

Steal out of the junk drawer? Well the whole thing is basically a craft storage unit with plastic drawers on wheels. The robber can just wheel that thing right out the door.

  1. 1. The junk drawer(s) are in the kitchen. I actually can’t think of a better place for them.

    2. I don’t. If I have any spare CR2032’s they’re in one of my office supply drawers. One clock and my kitchen scale both require them, but the clock in my office goes through them faster than the scale does.

    3. It’s a real toss-up between the LED flashlight and the telescoping magnet on a stick.

    4. What happened to 4?

    5. Probably the set of micro screwdrivers. So handy–especially if the thief (apparently named Roy?) wears eyeglasses.

  2. 1) You knowall junk eventually ends up in the kitchen.

    2) nope only AAA.

    3) the small set of screwdrivers. Like watch n glasses size.

    4) the three prong to two adaptor.

    5) the extra screws from a bed frame I no longer own.
