When I was growing up, we had a draw in the kitchen called "the junk drawer". It was basically the draw to put anything that wasn't a kitchen utensil: scissors, tape, stamps, twine, thumbtacks, and plenty more. One of the problems with having a place like this, is that it becomes a magnet for unrelated and unsorted stuff. Don't know where to put it? Stick it in the junk drawer! Of course, this almost guarantees you'll never find it when you need it.
In my apartment, the linen closet has taken this place. Five very tall and very deep shelves for storing...anything and everything!
This isn't my first post about attempting to deal with my linen closet. See my earlier entry, "A Bachelor in the Closet" for more details.
I'm not sure why I still call mine a "linen closet". I guess that's just because it's the closet next to my bathroom. My apartment has only two other closets: a bedroom closet, and a hallway closet (and I'm sure I'll have more entries for THOSE too).
What secrets lay in the land of Cluttercloset? Many strange things, I tell you. Stay tuned for more details.
