1.A six-pack of Scotch Magic Tape rolls because you can't really wrap presents without them. And with six rolls, odds are you'll always be able to find at least one in the drawer.
2.An 8-ounce bottle of Goo Gone for safely removing stickers, labels, decals, and more importantly the residue those things leave behind.
3.A pack of Corgi sticky notes because a big old floof-butt will surely be a more helpful reminder than a pale yellow square of paper.
4.A five-setting, adjustable focus LED tactical flashlight to light the way during any emergency. Plus it's waterproof for handling any under-the-sink plumbing problems.
5.A pack of reusable Loctite Fun-Tak mounting putty so you can hang your favorite posters and pictures up without damaging the walls. Also great for stopping vibrations of rattling windows, hanging decorations, and keeping things under 1 pound in place.
6.A set of two retractable-blade box cutters, because all that cardboard piling up really needs to be cut down to size. Includes a handy refill pouch with five extra blades for when all that slicing gets dull.
8.A ChomChom Roller pet hair remover that'll make you question if you even own any pets after you've completely cleaned off all that shedding (at least for a few seconds, until the critters jump back on couch or bed). The best part? No adhesive papers to replace. Just use it over and over again.
9.A six-pack of Bic "EZ Reach" lighters to make lighting candles (or whatever else you plan on setting fire to) that much easier. No finger burns here.
10.A two-pack of Westcott Titanium-bonded scissors, because you are sure to misplace one pair of these scissors and you'll always know the other is in the junk drawer.
11.A seven-pack of large Command utility hooks for holding up to five pounds of whatever you need to hang on a wall without doing any damage to that wall either.
12.A two-color pack of felt furniture pads, which you can think of as "coasters" for your wooden, laminate or tiled floors.
14.A state bottle opener made from recycled raw steel so you'll never damage the edge or a table or counter again trying to open a bottle like you did in college. Plus, "Go State!"
15.An all-in-one, small hole repair applicator tool for fixing dings and nicks in your walls. Apply the spackle from the tube (there's built-in primer), use the end of the tube as a putty knife, and then sand with the pad on the top. Genius!
16.A nylon-coated 12-foot tape measure that you'll use for almost every home-related project, be it finding a new couch or hanging picture frames and will serve as a constant reminder to always measure twice, cut once.
17.A simple spool of packing string for tying up packages and securing paper goods for recycling. Also comes in handy for pseudo-rustic decorating projects.
18.A set of 13 wood-colored markers and wax sticks with a sharpener to touch-up or cover-up scratches and stains in floors, tables, desks, or whatever woodwork has taken a beating in your home.
19.A Leatherman multi-tool, which is actually 14 tools in one (including a knife, pliers, screwdriver, wire cutter, wire stripper, scissors, package opener, bottle and can opener, a file, a ruler, and more). There's no need for an entire toolbox when this guy can easily fit in your pocket (or junk drawer).
21.A tube of Gorilla Super glue gel that'll dry in 10-45 seconds and bond to plastic, wood, metal, ceramic, rubber, leather, paper and more.
22.A 6-in-1 multicolor pen so you'll have multiple options for making color-coded notes. Also, this pen is going to be super hard to lose even at the bottom of the junk drawer.
23.A pack of 100 pre-moistened lens wipes to keep all those screens (tablets, smartphones, monitors) as well as glasses and camera lenses squeaky clean and smudge-free (until you immediately smudge them again).
26.A 16-piece set of furniture sliders for carpeted and hard floor surfaces to cut down on as much heavy lifting as possible. Why carry a couch when you can glide it instead?
27.A rubber band ball, because yes, rubber bands do actually come from somewhere and they don't just magically appear in your drawer. Also great for bouncing off the wall.
28.A five-pack of Scotch-Brite lint rollers (475 sheets total) to eliminate any and all fur, fuzz, hair from your wardrobe or furniture. As a bonus, you'll be able to wear all your black clothes again.
29.A pack of 30 multi-colored, PVC-coated, steel-wire utility clips for keeping chips crispy, cereal crunchy, and anything else you can attach them to closed up tight.
30.A light (but still heavy-duty) staple-free stapler that folds (up to five) pages together. You'll never have to steal staples from work ever again (Other office supplies are still totally up for grabs).
31.A classic Victorinox Swiss Army pocket knife with seven basic functions (blade, scissors, nail file, screwdriver, keyring, toothpick, and tweezers). The best part? You don't even have to serve in the Swiss military to get one.
32.A compact pencil sharpener with a screw-on lid to keep those shavings from getting all over the place. Bring new life to dull pencils without batteries or electricity (just like in the olden days).
33.A set of 16 interlocking organizer trays so you can turn the chaos of any junk drawer into an orderly space where you can always find exactly what you're looking for.
Remember, even if your drawer is a complete mess you can still make the most of it with the right junk.
