The Junk Drawer by Stacey Hawkins | Plum Tree Realty | Dayton, OH

If you're someone like me, you probably have a junk drawer,...... or two.

It started out as a neat drawer for useful things that always came in handy - Krazy glue, a small flashlight, birthday candles and don't forget the matches.

I've stored paperclips, scissors, batteries, post-it note pads, pens and sewing thread in it. If you can think of it, it's likely found in the junk drawer!

One thing I started doing, more than 10 years ago, when I sold my condo and my house in Florida - I started a drawer to store the user manuals for the appliances in my home.

It goes without saying having a warranty on your appliances is a great benefit. But sometimes the user manual can help with the little things.

It was surprisingly convenient to have the manual when I needed a new plate for the microwave or a new water filter for my fridge.

It was incredibly useful when I found myself needing a new oven handle for my stove.

One of the most thoughtful gifts an old homeowner can leave for the new home owner is a drawer of user manuals for the appliances in the home.

Often times, the little things can make home ownership a pleasurable experience.
