tips that work
It’s quite often during my days that I run across guy stuff that I just don’t know what to do with. Little pieces of metal that look like they might go to something, screws, nuts, bolts, and such (how is anything in my house held together?)
I am done with keeping all these little items in a junk drawer forever just in case we may or may not need them sometime in the near or distant future. I can’t make the decision to toss these things, however, and I think my husband’s head would swim if I bombarded him everyday when he walked in the door with “What should I do with this?”.
So I went and got me an old fashioned idea. Before my kids could get a hold of it (why do my boys love containers?) I snatched up a plastic peanut butter jar canister (apparently the peanut butter jar was for Sam’s letters) and I am now putting every odd hardware trinket I find in this jar. I’m keeping the jar in a cupboard in the kitchen where I can easily access it. I’d rather have it out in the garage to bond with the other man-stuff but I’m less likely to traipse out there with a stray screw. So, in the kitchen it will stay for now.
This way my husband can go through it at his leisure, I won’t accidentally throw something important away, and my drawers and the top of my dryer(?) will stay stray-hardware free.
