15 Things You Will Find In Every British Home

How many are in your house?

Take a look at some of these things that can be found in every home in the UK! There is no denying how blatantly true this is. There is no clear reason why we have some of these items in the house, but we all do, and they never get thrown out. 

We moan about the house not being tidy but point blank refuse to bin any of this stuff for no apparent reason. Everybody needs a storing cupboard full of useless things though don’t they? Take a look at some of them.

1. Celebration tin.

Or Roses, Quality Street, Heroes. We all have at least 1 tin still in the house leftover from Christmas. Now used for storage as they couldn’t possibly be thrown away.

There is nothing more painful as seeing a tin of Celebrations, to open them up and find a sewing kit or some plasters.

2. Calpol.

Whether there are children living at your house or not, there will always be a bottle of Calpol handy.

Which is good news as it is definitely the best tasting medicine ever created. Absolutely stunning.

3. Bag full of bags.

This is definitely a thing. Ive never been in a house that doesn’t have a master carrier bag which stores 30 thousand smaller carrier bags.

You will always have your poshest bag as the storer as well, so people know you have shopped in M&S.

4. Sports Direct mug.

How have we all ended up with this monstrosity in our kitchen cupboards. Even if you don’t shop there, you will still end up with one.

The size of them as well! Who drinks a litre of tea at a time. You would be going through milk like its out of fashion.

5. Junk drawer.

The infamous junk drawer. Sellotape, receipts for things bought 12 years ago, playing cards, passport photos, basically anything that you don’t need.

When we put something in the junk drawer it is because we know we don’t need it, but ‘you never know’. Stupid really.

6. VHS player.

Usually broken as well. Can you even buy VHS tapes anymore? The actual tapes we don’t have an issue throwing out, but we keep the player. Great logic.

This can now be found either in the garage on a pile of old CD players, or in the cupboard under the stairs.

7. Old phone.

When we get a new phone we keep our old as a spare, quite sensible. Then we get a new phone, and a new one, then our contract is due an upgrade.

And before you know it we end up with a museum of old mobile phones dating back the last 15 years, usually kept in the junk drawer.

8. Coat hangers.

Coat hangers are useful. But collecting enough coat hangers to fill up 4 wardrobes and a chest of drawers is madness.

Why can’t we throw them away? Worse still, to this day, when we buy clothes we always keep the hangers when they ask at the till.

9. WD40.

This can be found in every single garage or shed in the UK, and that is a fact. It’s realistically used maybe once every decade.

The can that is in our garage is usually so old that it is probably worth thousands on Cash in the attic.

10. Defunct currency.

I don’t understand this one whatsoever. But it’s so true, coins and notes that have been defunct for generations are stored usually in the junk drawer.

Do we cling on to it in hope that the EU separates and every single country we have ever visited revert back to their old currency?

11. Keys.

We are not talking house keys or car keys. We are talking about that great big bunch of keys kept in the junk drawer.

There are keys on there for things you have probably never seen. keys for padlocks that have eroded over time.

12. Argos catalogue.

Everybody loved an Argos catalogue back in the day. Highlighting what you wanted for Christmas inside it.

I’m not too sure how much use a catalogue for the summer sale of 2001 is going to be though. Maybe you could pick up a brand new, top of the range Nokia 3310 for your birthday?

13. Takeaway menus.

Hundreds and hundreds of these things. They usually have their own drawer somewhere downstairs.

The only issue being, they have been there for so long the chippy is now a Tesco petrol station.

14. Paint.

Tins of paint stacked to the ceiling of the shed or garage. Usually with a dried up paint brush on top.

Again these get so little use your house has since been painted a completely different colour, but you keep them nevertheless.

15. Embarrassing photo.

Every single house has one of these beauties in. Usually taking pride of place on the mantelpiece or in the hall way.

Usually a school photo from the year you had a shocking hair cut, parents always frame the worst looking photo of you.
