So if you’re thinking you’re here for a reveal of something awesome I bought from the reject shop…you’re part right and part wrong. This is the story of the time a year ago I got a lot more than I bargained for when I bought something super simple at the reject shop.
Organising ideas on Pinterest
We have a lot of medicines. It comes from an asthmatic kid and the fact that I hate needing to go to the pharmacy when we need something urgently. So I googled organising ideas on Pinterest and came up with a whole stash of medecine cabinet organising posts, which got me excited!
It’s basically a cavernous cupboard with no shelves, and it’s up high, above the fridge so it’s important that it’s well organised because I’m short and I have to get up on my trusty ikea steps to reach stuff.
So the plan was to look for an organising idea that would be easy to do and also easy to use.
All the good ideas used little a4 drawers to organise everything.
Off to the shops
So off to the shops I went with my pinterest searching fresh in my mind. I tried target first, as there was no kmart at this centre, then I trawled the $2 shops. At the last shop, the reject shop I found the perfect drawers for the job.
One set was open so I had a good look, checked how well they slid, and then…as most people would…I picked up two wrapped sets. Why do we do that? I headed to the checkout and got my drawers!
Time to organise
I ripped the plastic off the first set of drawers…and started to categorise my stuff. Using a pink chalk marker I wrote on the drawers until I could make a more permanent solution.
Then I opened up the second set. In the top drawer there was some paper- I didn’t think twice, assuming it was labels. But the small plastic bag that was also in the drawer made me look twice.
The piece of paper had phone numbers? And names on it.
The small bag contained what looked like small red sugared lollies.
It just looked odd. I called hubby over and he agreed, so we called the Police.
Next thing the police were here
They took a statement and took away the evidence after photographing my receipt. I was in shock there were a few laughs had about “Look what I got at the reject shop!”.
It turns out what we had in our possesion was drugs, red meth to be precise. We were so lucky, that I found them rather than the kids, who quite possibly might have thought they were lollies and eaten them.
