Every family needs a BOOM Box

Every family needs a B.O.O.M. box. No, I'm not talking about a music machine. I'm talking about a box used to contain "Broken, Odd Or Missing" items. What do you do when you come across a plastic whatcha-ma-call-it that you recognize but you just can't remember where it goes?
