Dan likes to have his knife sharpening tools (actually two of them) in this drawer. It's handy to have nearby to sharpen knives.
I keep bag twist ties in this drawer, as well as Post It Note Pads and pens.

I have a cute story to share about twist ties. When Dan's oldest grandson, Sam, was about three he was in the kitchen asking what was in each drawer. I would open a drawer and explain "the linens are in here" or "this is the cutlery drawer". Upon opening the junk drawer, he asked "What's in here?" I said "odds and ends". He held up a twist tie and asked, "Is this an odd or an end?" Whenever I see the twist ties in the drawer I think of little three-year old Sam who is now a grown man in his late twenties.
|Is this an odd or an end? I still don't know.|
Much in this drawer was jettisoned, and many things were put in a bag to donate to the Thrift Shop.
