I’ve Finally Found the Smartest Way to Use a Junk Drawer

Junk drawers are such a ubiquitous and guilt-inducing receptacle for various bobby pins and hair ties, rubber bands and extra buttons, that the best solution may be to not have one at all. But without another dedicated use, pretty soon that drawer with a vague purpose will become a catch-all for spare keys, pens (that may or may not work), and all the other junk you promised you wouldn’t put in there. In other words: You may not call it a junk drawer, but it is definitely a junk drawer.
