We do and it drives me INSANE!  Do you have one?  If so, how do you keep it organized?

Yep, and we don't keep it organized, its a junk drawer, things just get thrown in there.  We actually have 2, but one is more of an "office" junk drawer, so the glue, staples, extra blank DVD's, tape, etc. all the odds and ends from the office that make it to the rest of the house, get thrown in there and since we all know that's where stuff is at, its easier to use I suppose.  The one next to it is truly a junk drawer, as I am picking up stuff and just don't know where to put it, it goes in there.  I keep telling myself one day I am just going to take it completely out, walk it over to the garbage, and dump it all out without going through it, but then I have anxiety about "what if I throw something away we really do need?"  I do go through it about once a year and throw out excess cords, and anything else in there i know no one has used in a long time.
