I’m pretty sure I saw this on Mystery Science theaterâ€”the Junk Drawer Organizer. But I never thought I’d see one of these magnificent creatures in the wild. And yet…and yet. Does your junk drawer have a “lip balm” slot? Mine does. And a convenient slot for notepads. No convenient slot for pens, I note, but efficiency sometimes takes primacy over functionality. Maybe he just had a lot of notepads laying around. And you certainly wouldn’t want dozens of lip balm tubes rattling around in your drawer.
I like this. It’s both well-prepared and honest. A nice little graveyard for batteries that no-one knows nor cares about, and a place for Mystery Keys to live out their long, pointless existence. I’m glad they have a home.
Although I do wonder, “how many tweezers does one person need?” Sixteen? Fifty? Corner the tweezer market? I guess you couldn’t just have a “grooming” drawer, that would be granular enough. And you might get lip balm on your clippers. In the new world order of the modern junk drawer, we’ll have none of that nonsense.
So, if we’re ever caught in some sort of disaster with only the contents of our meticulously organized junk drawer to bring us through the crisis, at least we’ll still have cards. But I think this is the sort of mind that carefully fold and hang each garment when playing Strip Poker. I think I know this person.
Okay, not a horror, it was just too quirky to leave unexplored…

I want one.
Gotta say: this one is kinda cool, like a mock up for something IKEA might decide to sell.
