You know exactly where it is.

Even now, your mind races to your hall closet, digs underneath a stack of coats, and uncovers a box. Inside that box is a "doodad," a "thing-a-majig," a "kitchen essential" you saw in the store you just had to have....And you've never used it. Not once. It's okay!

We all do.


Reddit user, u/Xenothorns, wanted to know:

What's something in your house that no one uses, but is just there?

Always Good For A Party?

I have a 6-person hot tub on my back patio. I had always wanted one, and when we built out the patio, I made sure I set aside the money for it. It literally gets used twice per year, it's an absolute hog on electricity costs, and the constant maintenance of it is a complete pain. Worst thing I ever bought.

Who Has Time For Muffins?

I have a kitchen drawer full of stuff I've never touched. Melon baller? Pie crust crimper? Muffin pans? It's like you buy your first home and people think you've transformed into Martha Stewart.

We Don't Eat In The Dining Room! We Eat In The Kitchen!

A whole extra dining room table and chairs- my mom has one in the dining area and one in the kitchen.

she said the one in the dining room is for aesthetic purposes only

Shes from the old school: "It's for company to use, not the family."

Fresh Baked Bread Twice A Year

The bread maker. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Zero loaves of bread baked in the past three years. Still on the counter.

...I Got Nothing.

My parents have a giant wooden giraffe in the corner of their dining room. I have no idea why.

If anyone asks just tell them "We don't talk about it."

We Got It In. There Has To Be A Way Out.

One of those giant big screen tvs from like 20 years ago that take up an entire wall because noone in my family wants to bother with figuring out how to get it out of the house because it is massive, and on the 2nd floor and we dont even have a car big enough to take it to the disposal center.

Now that I think about it, I don't even know how it got upstairs in the first place.

Ugh. Cat.

My cat.

Shes so useless. Doesnt pay her share of the rent, and never brings home chicken wings.

No one has any use for her, yet there she is, sh-tting in a box in the closet.

Does she at least eat bugs?

Not even that.

When You Have No One To Play Against...

I have a nice stone chess set that doesn't get used because I live alone.

Play against yourself. Make a move when you leave in the morning for white and one for black when you get back.

Wait, Why Are The Cords Red, Yellow, And White?

Box of cables you just KNOW you will need someday, but by the time you need them you forget you have them.

Every time I say screw it and throw a cable away I need it the next day

Be it to a foreign country on the other side of the world, or merely a town a few miles north or south of you, there is always a slightly uneasy feeling of being in a new place.

Sometimes, however, you don't only suffer from homesickness upon arriving, but find yourself genuinely scared.

Perhaps you don't find yourself particularly welcome by the residents, or there are no people to be seen for miles around.

Either way, there are places all over the world where not long after arriving, the only thing on the minds of visitors was to get out of there as fast as they could.

Redditor 8-tentacles was curious to learn the places fellow Reddit users would never set foot in again under any circumstances, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest town/city you’ve been to, and why?"

Men have this reputation for being simple, straightforward creatures.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Humans in general are not simple, straightforward creatures, but men are just ... baffling.

At least as far as the women of Reddit are concerned.

The land Down Under is one of the most highly anticipated travel destinations for tourists around the world. Australia has fascinating history, beautiful sights, great food, cool wildlife, and some pretty cool people.

But as with any travel destination, there's bound to be a certain degree of culture shock. Have a seat and listen up, because you're in for some surprises.

Australians shared some information with us after Redditor emchmu123 asked the online community,

"Australians of Reddit, what is something that the rest of the world would be surprised or shocked to hear about the country?"
