What’s in My Bedside Drawer.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bedsider.org. But all thoughts and opinions are my own, so come at me. old nyc metrocard

Bedside drawers can be very personal spaces. You could have ANYTHING in there. Like a baby. You could have a living baby in your drawer. And that’s your business. Or, if you don’t want babies like me, you can go to Bedsider.org and figure out which method is right for you to prevent babies from suddenly occurring.

Because when people think about what’s usually in beside drawers, they think about super secret sexy stuff. We all know what I’m talking about. To quote Bea Arthur’s Dorothy Zbornak, “Condoms, Rose! Condoms! Condoms! CONDOMS!”

And thanks to Lucky Bloke, I have all the condoms I could ever need. And honestly, I do not need this many condoms. But one day they sent me a huge package (that’s what she said!!!!!!) and I was left with no choice but to stare in awe at this wide variety of condomocity.

Wow! It’s like pop art! So fun to look at. So colorful! So kind of anyone to think I would need all of these! (But if you’re one of those people who’s “not into condoms” — which is basically 90% of people — I really do recommend checking out Bedsider for other options. Lots of fun stuff to click over there.)

But there are more things in my drawer. Things that are in no way sex related. Like this:

It’s an action figure of the vaguely popular Saturday Night Live character, Mary Katherine Gallagher! This has been in my drawer for about 8 years now. I dressed as her one year for Halloween because I was REALLY COOL! And what’s this?

two dollar bill

A TWO dollar bill??? I probably got this from the tooth fairy several years ago, or maybe yesterday, and I still don’t know what to do with it. Dare I spend it? DARE I?

orlando keychain

This is a keychain I had custom made for me when my family and I went to Orlando about 20 years ago. My parents made up the name “Almie” so no one ever has Almie merchandise at theme parks. Truly a Bort situation. Thus, I insisted that for once in my life I would have a key chain with my name on it. So my entire family waited for me to get a stupid dinky keychain personalized with my name. We were heroes. Just for one day.

My bedside drawer has become something of a memory book. There is nothing useful in there at all. It’s just things that I don’t want to get rid of because it’s not like they’re taking up a huge amount of space and it’s not like I would get lots of money by selling them, so instead I will just keep them forever, because we know how nostalgia is one hell of a drug.

You can see even more crap from my bedside drawer on my Pinterest board (there’s even something Paul McCartney related, because of COURSE there is.) And you can enter Bedsider’s “What’s In My Bedside Drawer?” Pinterest contest to win $200 cards for Apple, Bloomingdale’s, Amazon, Etsy, and more. You don’t even have to upload your own ridiculous stuff like I did. Here’s what you need you to do:


I’m really interested to see what kind of rubbish you guys REALLY have in your drawers. I know at least one of you has to have an action figure, and it probably isn’t as cool as mine, but that’s okay. You’ll get there. You’ll get there.


Every girl has that bedside drawer that holds the bedroom essentials: their Kindle, a pair of reading glasses, sexy lingerie. – whatever fits their personality. No matter what your drawer says about you, there’s birth control that will fit right in. Find the best method for your routine and style at Bedsider.org.

    I don’t have a bedside drawer, I have a minifridge next to my bed. Because who wants to have to go to the kitchen or the bathroom for cold water in the middle of the night?
    Fuck that shit. The man who invents the nightstand with a minifridge in it will be a very rich man. Come to think of it… PATENT PENDING!
    And in the minifridge I have a bunch of bottled water and a stockpile of Jolt Cola. Then on top of the minifridge it’s just fucking condoms everywhere.

    I hate sponsored posts.

    I don’t have a bedside table. I just throw everything on the floor next to my bed. I’m a minimalist.

      I understand why some people would hate sponsored posts. I love them, and not for the obvious reason. It can be really hard for me to come up with ideas, and I love that these posts serve as a prompt. It gives me a direction and I get to run with it. I only accept sponsorships I endorse, recommend, use, or would use.

      Your bedside table sounds a lot like my closet.

    I love the Almie keychain. I had the same problem as a kid. My Mom had a “Simone” rubber stamp custom made for me at a rubber stamp store.

    I’m currently without a bedside drawer but when I did have one it included stuff like ear plugs, body lotion, sleeping pills (that I used to use), condoms, some jewelry, my childhood charm bracelet and tons of photos.

      Thanks! I love my guitar keychain too :)

      I used to keep SO MANY photos in my bedside drawer. But then would all get stuck in the back of the drawer, when you open and close it and they’d get wedged in there and get snagged and bent. Finally moved them.

    I have a harmonica, a yomega yoyo, and to-be cavities conspicuously concealed as jolly ranchers (does anyone else miss the LEMON ones?!) Yay for never growing up!
