Nothing, I don't have one.

On my nightstand? the usual: lamp, chargers, some decorations and that’s where my wallet and glasses sit at night.

In my nightstand? That has turned into a massive junk drawer of thjngs I have no idea of where to put, but some things of note: passport, travel charger, different currencies from the world, old chargers, nail file and clippers, other watches, a journal I tried to keep 20 years ago.

That reminds me, I should probably go through and clean it out.

Hmmm.. Mostly a full bottle of water, rest of the space is for my phone and glasses when I go to sleep, in the morning the same space can be reused for a mug full of coffee.

Condoms, a magic wand, lube, cock ring, extra cables for charging various devices, and a knife the seller named "Praxis" like the moon from Undiscovered Country.

On top, I keep ear buds, glasses, and my phone, usually.

Inside I keep extra meds and a small gun safe. On top is usually water, Nintendo DS, a book, and my jewelry. When I’m lazy you’ll find little nebulizer vials on top too.

small gun safe

Amazing how odd that sounds to people that don't live in the 19th century

[–] nnullzz 8 points 1 month ago (7 children)

Home defense is only normal in the 19th century? I have kids and own guns, not sure what else would be expected.

A truly unreasonable number of sex toys that built up over the years from previous relationships. My anti-bible "Drunk With Blood".

I don't have a bedside nightstand but I do have a shallow shelf over my bed where I have sleep meds, paracetamol, wireless earphones, a roll of TP, microfiber cloth and and also put my glasses and snus can there when I go to bed.

You don't have a cat do you?

[–] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

I had/have a similar setup. My one cat I've had for years never knocks anything down but now I also have a kitten and he occasionally feels the need to clear that ledge off. Typically when I'm in bed. It is kind of funny just hearing the pill bottles slide for a bit then fall out of nowhere.

I don't keep very much up there now. Only stuff he shows very little interest in pushing over.

[–] CaptPretentious 4 points 1 month ago

Phone, phone charger, TV remote

[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

Honest:

  • Taco Bell hot sauce packets (may be expired, who knows)
  • McDonald's Hot Mustard cups or whatever you call them
  • Depleted weed batteries
  • Old remotes that I don't even know what they go to
  • Random mail from like 2+ years ago
  • Sunflower seeds (fresh!)
  • Nail clippers
  • A couple books I haven't read yet
  • Extra socks
  • Extra charging cables
[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

A clock, kleenex, and a good book.

[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

Woman over 30 here. I just keep a bottle of water, and in the summer, an electric infuser that thwarts mosquitos (too many in my area). I make a point to not have phones or alarm clocks by.

[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

We have limited closet space. So I don't get a bedside anything except a clothes rack. Tbh...it's fuckin annoying.

[–] [email protected] 4 points 1 month ago

I'm a minimalist- no nightstand.

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Some CDs that go in the stereo on top of it.

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

The spare sheets.

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Books I never read and T shirts for sleeping.

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Just my phone pretty much. I dont need my glasses to find my way to the bathroom in the morning, and I dont wake up in the middle of the night to drink water, if anything I wake up prematurely because I need to take a whiz. And then I can take a couple sips from the bathroom sink if I am thirsty.

[–] FleetingTit 3 points 1 month ago

USB multi charger, head scritcher, massage oil, iPad, loads of cables, fitness tracker, book-shaped light, remote for the lights. There's also a little trash bin next to the bed, which is super useful.

Most of the stuff is in my nightstand though, so everything looks neat and tidy.

[–] Lifecoach5000 3 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Oh no… it’s kinda gross. Mostly snot rags and money.

A stand for my phone, a stand for my ereader, and two buttons for my smart home setup: one turns everything in the house off, the other toggles the reading lamp.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago (1 children)

Where'd you get those buttons?

My savings.

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

In or on?

In? Nothing

On? Glasses, book, wallet and keys, phone, bottle of water, eye mask and a tissue box.

[–] SomeGuy69 3 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

Charging cables, earplugs in case of random lawnmower in summer, a bottle of water to the side.

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

In - sex things.

On: glasses case, charging cable

[–] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Phone, alarm clock (because some mornings, at least one of those will fail). Water bottle on the floor so there's less fuss when I tip it over.

Piles of books have taken over most other surfaces.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Inside? An old silk pillowcase that I don't use anymore, an old birthday card from my mom, and most of my warm pants.

On top? Phone charger, phone, headphones, glasses

[–] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

My phone, water, a tarot deck, and waaay too many books.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Water, Glases, my Phone and a pack of migraine pills.

[–] [email protected] 2 points 1 month ago

Anything that was ever on top of it that I no longer wanted there. There is a whole bunch of shit in there. I even have glow sticks in there.
