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.
Laptop Magic wand Satisfyer 2 glass dildos Eye mask Pinwheel Leather strap 3 new wax play candles 4 used wax play candles Matchbook 2 doilies 15 pens/pencils Toothbrush 2 retainers Nail clippers Nail file Tweezers Deck of cards Deck of tarot cards Remote control for air conditioner Reading glasses Hot Wheels car Fan 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 Chaulk Tictacs Essential oils Plastic cutlery Spool of wire 5 pennies 7 Batteries Birth control that expired in 2013 Button 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 Magnet Scissors Pictures 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?
