Default Armrest storage, what do you put in there?

I decided to clean it up a bit today, I have some CD'*, condoms, gum, and my old shifter **** in there.

A question struck me in the process, is there really any use to that little lid thing at the bottom on the storage? I know its ventilation for the rear passengers, but why can we access it? Is it for your drugs maybe?

The access is to get to the bolts holding the console down.

yeah well, following the instructions on the box about proper care is a lot easier than caring for a kid.

I've got my tunebase for my ipod when I'm not using it, gum, coin holder, and maybe some napkins. I am intrigued by that "hiding space" though. It took me a WHILE to see that little tab to pull up on!
