Spring Cleaning

I spent some time tidying my bedroom on the weekend. Many things have piled up over the past couple months and I desperately need to declutter. I don’t know about you, but when my space is cluttered and messy my brain follows suit. Clearing things out of my room will help clear the chaos in my mind as well.

You’d be surprised how much clutter you can hide simply by closing a door or a drawer. I’m looking at you kitchen junk drawer! Turns out, I had one of those junk drawers in my bedroom, in my bedside table.

How much “junk” do you think one can fit in an 11.5 x 14.5 x 4.5 drawer? Apparently a whole hell of a lot. Below is a list of what I pulled out of said drawer. Needless to say, it did not all go back in.

Magic wand
2 glass dildos
Eye mask
Leather strap
3 new wax play candles
4 used wax play candles
2 doilies 
15 pens/pencils
2 retainers 
Nail clippers
Nail file
Deck of cards 
Deck of tarot cards 
Remote control for air conditioner
Reading glasses 
Hot Wheels car
4 lollipops 
37 paper clips 
5 binder clips
4 clothes pegs
Ribbons and cotton strapping
2 silicon cups
7 elastics
45 business cards
2 chargers
iPhone ear buds 
15 pay slips
A job offer letter
Essential oils
Plastic cutlery 
Spool of wire
5 pennies
7 Batteries
Birth control that expired in 2013
Safety pin
3 hair clips 
4 gift bags
4 hand cream samples
Bracelet and charm
Old work id (~16yo)
2 cheque books
5 meditation cd’s
2012/2013/2020 tax returns 
2009 date book 
Birthday card
Hospital ID bracelet 
Son’s K2 report card, from 2015
2012 D/s agreement 
3 sheets stickers
Paint swatches
Copy of old passport
Travel documents/tickets/boarding passes/maps/ etc.
3 recipes
Device manuals 
Old receipts

All of that. In one little drawer. I had a shower and a nap after I finished. There is a second drawer I didn’t even get to. Maybe I will do that one this weekend. Spring cleaning is going to take forever if I can only do one drawer a day, on my days off.

On the plus side, I no longer have an old remote (for a portable air conditioner I sold back in 2014) stuck to the bottom of the drawer and I found my (expired) birth control! Lol…

What mysteries are hiding in your drawers?

  1. WOW! That’s a lot you had in that drawer, and somehow I have the feeling if I clear mine out, the same will happen… I will find much more in there than I realize 😉
    Sometimes spring cleaning is really necessary.

    • You will be amazed. These little drawers are like Mary Poppin’s handbag. 🙂
