For past Tuesday Ten posts, we've shared what's in our cars, our purses, our closets, and even our freezers! We thought, today, it would be interesting to share exactly what kind of junk is in our drawers!
(Is anybody else giggling immaturely at that last sentence? Would you laugh if I told you I almost titled this post "What's in Your Drawers?" )
I actually have a few junk drawers. There's one in the end table in the den. It has oodles of random papers, take out menus, pens, and other miscellaneous stuff. There is also one in my nightstand. At one time, it contained papers that I had deemed "important." Right now, I couldn't even begin to guess what all those papers are,s o they must not actually be all that important!
Since today is my kids' last day of school (finally!), I decided it would be most appropriate to tell you about what started out as our homework drawer, but has become a big mess. My kids sit at the kitchen table to do their homework, so a couple years ago, I took an awkwardly placed drawer and put all their school supplies in it. As with other spaces, over time, it has become a cluttered, disorganized mess!
Here's what's inside:
- Crayon boxes - My youngest just finished second grade, so we could probably stand to downgrade to just ONE box of crayons. I don't remember any of them needing crayons for homework this school year!
- Colored Pencils - I don't remember any of the needing to use colored pencils either, but they are always on the supply list in the fall.
- Math Flash Cards - My youngest was working on memorizing her math facts this year, so we got some flash cards. Eventually, they ended up in this drawer.
- The Best Dictionary for Students- I don't even remember where we got these and my kids have never used them. To them, the best dictionary for students is Google!
- Watercolor paints - No idea why these were in the drawer!
- Craft sticks - My middle daughter used these for a project early int he school year. The leftovers got stuffed in the drawer.
- Glue sticks - Truthfully, I don't think my kids used these for homework much either, but, again, they are always on the list!
- Rulers - My youngest learned about measuring this year and these came in handy!
- Papers, papers, papers! - I had a bad habit of tossing school related papers int he "school" drawer, but then I never went back and discarded the ones that were e out of date.
- Kid scissors - All three of my girls now prefer regular sized scissors, so these didn't get used very much.
- Erasers - For when the erasers not he pencil get wrong down, but there is still lots of pencil left!
- Pens and Pencils - Got to have these for the homework and, obviously, we have quite a collection!
- Highlighters -Yet again, not sure they ever actually used these, but we seem to have several.
Since I had to pull all these things our of the drawer to show you, I figured I might as well take the opportunity to straighten it up, so . . . . . Voila!
Hopefully, it will all stay this organized until school starts again in the fall!
