The Junk Drawer

Growing up we always had a junk drawer.  It was always in the kitchen and it held all of the random detritus of life -bits and bobs that you might need later, or get to later, maybe. You know, like that piece of wood you might re-glue to a broken piece of furniture, or that needle you may need to inflate a basketball if it goes flat, that kind of stuff.
Well, I don't have enough drawer space in my current kitchen to have a junk drawer. I do, however have plenty of other drawers that serve this purpose. This desk in the upstairs hall has lately morphed into a "junk catch-all".

Before:
Let's work our way down, shall we? These aren't actually bad at all. Guitar strings, a tin of paper clips, a Thomas disk and some sage to ward off bad energy.
Top drawer full of supplies that I use to make Kit's calendars plus some old handouts from Ethan's fall cross-country season (better make sure to hold on to those!)
Random, random, random.
 The real beaut.


After:
Clips on the left, burnable on the right.
All CDs (edited) and Kit's calendar supplies.
cars and toys.
Cameras, hard-drives, and computer related cords.
