Yes, we know what was put in it <a href="http://forum.dvdtalk.com/other-talk/543230-whats-latest-thing-you-put-your-junk-drawer.html">4 years ago</a> (Warning: link contains cat butt references).

But what's the strangest thing in it right now?

I found half of a doll.

I'm not a packrat so I don't have a junk drawer. If something is junk I [major shocking spoiler] throw it away [/major shocking spoiler]

A heating element of some kind with an AC cord -- it came with the house so I have no idea as to its purpose. :confused:

Cleaned and organized ours a few months back so nothing unusual has made its way back in there yet.

I am the same way, for the most part. My idea of cleaning is filling up a few trash bins. But I am in a house that was inherited, and I found a set of keys taped under a kitchen shelf. They don't seem to fit anything currently in the house, but I stuck them in the back of a kitchen drawer, just in case.

Krazy glue that I can't open because it sealed itself.

Black binder clips. About a dozen of different sizes. I've had these things for probably 15 years and have NEVER used one.

Keys that open who the hell knows what.

A folder filled with dozens of delivery menus, even though I order from the same 3 places every time (fried chicken, Chinese, & pizza).

I've had this little racist, ceramic thing in a desk drawer for years. I think I've had it since high school but can't remember where (or why) I got it.

Opposite hinge that comes with a fridge so you can reverse the door if you want.

Sounds like a perfect April Fool's day prank waiting to happen.

I should probably throw that out.

A skull key chain which came attached to a bottle of hot sauce I bought a few years back. I have no idea how it has managed to not be thrown out for this long.

After careful consideration of several likely candidates, the winner was chosen by most truly defining the term "useless". I give you:

Piece of broken plastic that I have absolutely no idea what it came off of.

The runners up were:

Cheap plastic pearl necklace:

Stormtrooper keychain:

and last, but not least, an assortment of Fantastic 4 and Transformers toys from Lunchables:

I can't post a pic, but it's a small plastic wind-up severed penis tip, who's "feet" is blood. Wind it up and it hops around. It was a great gag back in highschool. Not sure why it's still in here.. and in my work junk drawer no less.

Yup'. Part of what I do for a living is recycling. So I have zero problems throwing away stuff [into the scrap bins] that I'll never use, or half-working stuff. People hang onto too much crap and it gets them down.

I don't know how you could not have a junk drawer. I keep pencils, pens, tape, paperclips, batteries, philips & standard screwdrivers, tape measure, etc. Sure all these things could go in an office or toolbox but convenience trumps proper homes. Grabbing a screwdriver out of the junk drawer is much easier than running out to the garage. :)

Except none of those items you described are "junk."

Junk has no useful purpose. Those things are all useful.

I keep pens, pencils, scotch tape, paperclips, etc in an organizer on my desk. Utility items like batteries, screwdrivers, flashlights, etc are kept on shelves above the washer and dryer.

Who me? Ah heck no. I don't even own an iron, and I wear my socks until they have more holes than Swiss cheese.

Well if you're being that technical I bet no one in this thread has a "junk" drawer. It's a drawer full of miscellaneous shit.

Well you have to stay organized when you're an axe murderer. Like me.

:rolleyes:

That's the name of the drawer. You can call it your "useful shelf" if you want.
