Assignment #8: Clean Dresser Drawers

 Things have been so crazy here at the museum, but I finally got around to another one of Crystal's assignments.  There were only three of our drawers (1 of Joe's and 2 of mine) that need to be cleaned out.  The other drawers hold clothing, which was just cleaned out after Christmas, so I just focused my time on the drawers that tend to accumulate clutter.  First up, Joe's drawer.  Nothing really interesting, but I did re-fold the ties and sorted his hankies and bandanas nicely. 
 Next up were my two drawers.  The one on the right is for more important things, like my inhaler, change purse, nail scissors, mints, funeral cards, and extra contacts.  The one on the left is kind of my misc drawer.  It's for things that I need to keep some where I can easily get to them, but that I don't use too often.  I have my ear buds, extra travel pill holders, neck messager's for when I have a migraine, an extra pair of sunglasses, and a cooling wrap for my neck.
 After putting back the things that were needed, this is what I was left with for the donation/flea market boxes: 2 Men's Dress Belts, 2 Ties, 2 old Lanyards, 2 key chains, a velvet pouch, a small Change purse, and a handful of temporary tattoos.  This does not include the two handfuls of stuff that just went into the trash.
