my junk drawer

i needed a pencil sharpener this morning, for my eyebrow pencil, i know where there is one but its a matter of getting to it. its in the place where i put things that i want , but dont know when i will need. the junk drawer. in there you will find the good the bad and the just plain strange. tape of all different varieties, scotch, packing , masking, correction and my fave blue painters. i found a coupon for jif peanut butter that had expired in february, a dinousaur stamper, various nuts, bolts, screws and picture hanging hardware. there was a manual for a carseat that i have had for 2 years and if i dont know how to use it by now theres not much hope for me as a parent. hammer, clothes pins, putty knife door stop, giant rubber band.... and..... pencil sharpener! yay, i found it!
now theres the problem of getting everything back to the place it was so i can close the drawer. 
and no i cant throw any of this away, dont you realize its important!! thats why its in there in the first place!
and i also want to mention that theres a giveaway! at my messy nest .

That drawer is pure insanity! I love that you know what is in it - it's organized chaos!

Okay where are the orange handled scissors?! You know the ones you always cut the "stuck bits" off the dog then opened you Popsicle with when you were a kid (courtesy of Jon Hefron--comedian)?!! But you know which ones he is talking about...we ALL do!
