Many people have what they refer to as ‘the junk drawer’, however, if you embrace the concept of minimalism in any way or have simply decluttered, there is really no reason to have a drawer full of junk.
Therefore, I actually have a carefully curated drawer of useful things.
Some of the things are probably a bit difficult to identify so I will list them below.

2 boxes of extra-long matches
Set of mini screwdrivers
Screwdriver with multiple heads
Heavy-duty ziplock bags for reuse
Bread bags for reuse (under ziplock bags)
Small bags for reuse
Teatowel and muslin cloth

Cut down milk bottle containing twist ties
Cut down milk bottle containing boxes of matches, compass, mini steel measuring tape, rubber bands, tiny ziplock bags, reusable plastic tags cut from an ice-cream container
Case containing torch and charger
Bag containing pieces of plastic from cereal box liners for reusing to separate food in the freezer
Ziplock bags for reuse
The contents are very useful as evidenced by the fact that my useful drawer is opened multiple times every day.
Do you still have a junk drawer that looks like the one above? It is a great place to start decluttering. Why don’t you try it and see?
I like the idea of calling it a useful drawer. Thank you for some very useful ideas.
I love the idea of re-using cereal box liners for freezer food. Ecological and economical. Thanks for sharing!
