What Does Your Junk Drawer Say About You?
Since the dawn of time, humanity has had a place to shove random crap. We all do it; I don’t care how cookie-cutter perfect you think you are, if you don’t have a junk drawer, then you must kick ice cubes under the refrigerator.
I have concluded, judging by my multiple personalities (each one has its drawer), that there are four types of junk drawer people.
Let’s get down to business.
First, we have the artist. Well, the Wannabee DIY artist. In their drawer you will find a plethora of:
- Drawing utensils,
- Dried out highlighters,
- Glue sticks from the fourth grade,
- Paper clips and sticky-notes,
- Tea bags,
- And a half-empty bag of confetti.
This makes you the procrastinator who has 1000s of ideas, yet, stashes them away for a rainy day. You most likely have a Pinterest account with 50 folders and millions of intentions. You scroll through Google looking for more DIY activities that will never get done. When you watch TV, you like to watch how to shows or documentaries. Nothing gets your engine roaring like a cat and a cup of tea.
Next, we have the killer. If you have the guts to scan their junk drawer, some of the things you may find include,
- Multiple pairs of scissors,
- A few old steak knives,
- Tiny pointy objects such as pins and paper clips,
- Duct tape,
- Nails and screws,
- And rubber bands.
As the killer, You spend your days looking for things to chop up, or you aimlessly walk through your house, staring out of the windows. You refuse to throw away pointy objects because subconsciously, you know there will be something to cut, pin, stab, or tape. You enjoy shows like Dexter and often pretended you are in the show. You don’t care for cats. However, you think birds are pretty rad. Your favorite color is black.
If you are an inventor or avid SharkTank watcher, your junk drawer will be filled with:
- Random pads of paper,
- 10 year old batteries,
- Pieces of wire,
- Pens and permanent markers,
- And an unnecessary amount of instruction manuals.
Well, well, well, we have an entrepreneur here, guys! You enjoy watching SharkTank and spending your days pondering over ways to make one million dollars. You’re a dog lover and believe that cats are evil. You are super smart, but you loathe math, which is why you always stop in the middle of an invention.
I resonate most with this one; as the hoarder, your drawer has no limits. Upon opening a hoarders junk drawer, you will find:
- Everything from previous drawers, plus,
- Makeup, or soaps,
- Bra pads, or socks,
- A cat,
- And a vast amount of Taco Bell sauce packets.
Congratulations, you have reached the top tier of the junk drawers championships! You have zero concern with where your odds and ends end up, because you have at least 2–4 drawers that contain anything smaller than a book in them! You enjoy watching dramas and funny shows. You thrive off diet sodas and trail mix. Cats rock, dogs rock, and if you could trade humans for animals, you would. Your favorite color is violet and orange.
