We usually use this term, odds and ends to refer to miscellaneous things or items. Some different things that don't usually or don't easily fit into a particular category. So we say "just some odds and ends. That's the way we usually put it. So let's look at some examples here. I need to pick up some odds and ends that I plan to use for finishing up this project. So it's probably a number of things, but you don't know... like you can't put it all into one category and you just try to make it easier to tell somebody. Maybe you don't want to mention each one specifically. Maybe it's a little unclear. Maybe you change your mind about it a little bit too. But you will say some odds and ends. You know just some extra things that you might need for some project or to finish up a particular thing. Okay. Let's look at number two. I usually put some small odds and ends in these drawers. Yeah. Like everybody sometimes has drawers. This is like a miscellaneous draw like you might have drawers for specific things you know, for I don't know silverware or , or something else but you might have an odds and ends draw or a miscellaneous drawer where you just put a number of different things you don't know where else to put them. So you'll put them all into one draw. Where ...well let me see I don't know what category that's an out must be an I just put it in this drawer so you have all those odds and ends in a particular draw. That's the way sometimes people will sort out odds and ends. And let's look at number three. I have to figure out where to sort it means again to separate them you know , into different groups of categories. And put away some of these odds and ends. Yes . So especially when we we're not going through the trouble of specifically mentioning what they are will often just generalize and refer to them as odds and ends. Okay. Anyway I hope you got it .I hope it's clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
