What’s in your Junk Drawer?

junk drawer 1

Gas relief pills.


Pencil sharpener full of shavings.

Rubber bands.

Empty eye glass case.

Hammer with a screwdriver handle.

Address stickers.

The letter G from an old Scrabble game. I’m going to have it made into a necklace.

Ear plugs.

Box of matches.

Four wooden wheels from an old dresser.

Safety glasses.

Something called a Ben wa ball my aunt gave to me when I was eighteen. I never knew what it was for until I googled it a couple years ago and then was embarrassed that it was something she thought I needed. I’d only kept it all those years because I thought it was pretty.

Bottle of Frankincense oil.

My mom’s old ruler from her school days. It says I love Andrew on the back—my dad’s name is Jim.

Psychedelic cigarette lighter. I don’t smoke.

The joker from a deck of cards.

Oscar Mayer Wiener ring. Don’t ask.

Emory board with no grit left.

Three keys for locks unbeknownst to me.

Neon pink index cards to keep it all organized.
