Junk drawers

There are too many places in this house for "miscellaneous junk". Places that need to be searched when I need to find a smallish item that is not where I expect it to be, or that doesn't have a place where I expect it to be. Top drawers in two desks, compartments in one of those desks, top drawers of dresser, bathroom drawers, jewelry boxes (which also accumulate buttons, pins, keys, etc.), a box or two in the garage cabinets, and many spots in the 'new' (from the 2006 renovation) cabinets of the utility room and the Cat Room.

I searched all of these, the most likely of them two or more times, looking for my old Hastings triplet hand lens, largely unused since I emerged from college with my geology degree, got a job as a hydrologist, and quit looking at rocks for the most part. I thought I'd seen it recently, defined as 'period of time that seems like a couple of months, but the older I get could really have been a couple of years'. It eventually turned up not in any of the junk drawers, but in a box of 'misc. stuff' that needs a new home after a clean-out of the primary desk's top drawer. Not with it, however, was the smaller, higher-powered triplet that used to be on the same lanyard...that may have disappeared forever.

I could upload Michael Longcor's "Kitchen Junk Drawer" for you, if you'd like.
