Laundry "Treasures"

When I do laundry, I am always surprised at what I find in my boys' pockets. Where do these things come from? What makes them pocket-worthy? More importantly, what are they being saved for? 

Here is a list of ten items I found in pockets this month:
  1. rubber bands
  2. paper clips
  3. tiny pencil-top eraser
  4. clam shells
  5. rocks
  6. twisty tie from bread package
  7. coins
  8. random hardware items (screws, bolts, nuts, etc.)
  9. gum wrapper
  10. Lego Guy helmet
The weirdest part of it is that if I leave these items on the washer and they spot them... back in the pocket they go.

What's the strangest thing you've found in a pocket while doing laundry?

Pin It!


  1. Lego guys and legos
    Popcicle sticks
    Wrapers off anything he eats outside

  2. Dead lizard. Apparently, it was a live lizard upon entering the pocket.

  3. I LOVE reading this post and knowing what Alex and Drew have kept in their pockets!!! Hopefully one day I'll have some little boys with pockets full of funny things!
