The WTF bowl!

Tad_MTad_M Member, Rooster Endurance Member, Level 2 Supporter
For 16 years in this house, when we find stuff that "we know we will find where that came from" but have no idea, we put it in a bowl. It became known as the WTF bowl (finally the kids don't have to ask why it's called that)
I'm refinishing the kitchen cabinets, and we reclaimed our very first item from the WTF bowl.
We celebrated a little bit!
My favourite otherwise is the big copper ball......

Does anyone else have a WTF collection? If you see something you need, come visit Michigan!

    If we weren’t currently mid-blizzard I would go out and take a pic of the contents of the WTF building. I thought this post was going to be about college football.

    My motto is: When in doubt, throw it out.

    ....and pay for it later.

    @Tad_M don't worry - even though I'm a kinda-sorta-always-trying-to-be-a-better-minimalist, I think EVERY house has a junk drawer or bowl. I'm just impressed that it's not bigger than that! While I don't have a single WTF spot in the house for misc stuff like yours, I certainly have several categorized / kinda organized places that are WTF by category (i.e. the little box of nails, screws, and picture hanging stuff, or the plastic bin of power strips / electronic things). I've moved WAY too many times and know better than to get rid of ALL this stuff. I just try to get rid of the backup-backup for the backup.

    So about 9 months ago I found a strange rubber stopper. Fast forward 6 months and I finally flip over my blender and see that it's missing a rubber foot, which is why it has been vibrating for the past 6 months. A month more goes by with casual research into sourcing a new foot. Then my wife asks me to do something hardware related and I fish around in the jar of miscellaneous parts and I discover this rubber plug. I grab the blender and, lo and behold, it fits perfectly.

    NEVER THROW OUT THAT POTPOURRI OF PARTS!!!

    That's quite a collection of butt plugs and ball gags, @Tad_M!

    I recognize a hatchet from Legos or Playmobil in there.
