If there was ever a danger in organizing our homes, it’s the box or drawer we label “miscellaneous.” It is so often another word for “I don’t know what this is but I’m keeping it anyway.”
That said, there are many necessary objects in our homes that are used only occasionally, and that would be best stored in drawers or boxes, rather than out in the open. if these items are small enough to store with other, although unrelated, items, it might be better to have a miscellaneous drawer or box, BUT ONLY ONE!
The key here would be to keep it organized, and to purge it once it gets full. Naturally, you will attach an inventory to the box so you can see its contents at a glance.
