Update!
Mystery has been solved! The bearings were in fact coming from a drawer. I posted pics in the comments after removing a drawer that gives me trouble occasionally.

I’ve got a mystery for you guys.
For the last several months we keep finding ball bearings and have no idea where they could be coming from. We’ve found them mostly in the kitchen. But I just found one in the living room.
Nothing appears to be broken or in the process of breaking and I have no clue what could possibly have ball bearings and be losing them! Any advice?

That’s so funny, I found the same thing over and over when I first moved into my house.

Ok general consensus seems to be aliens and drawers. Where do I check on a drawer? How do I check?

Do you have a computer desk with a sliding area for keyboard?

Probably falling out of drawer slides. You don’t know until they all fall out. I’ve had some fall out a dresser drawer and it slides just as it did with all of them

Drawers. Do you have ball bearing slides on your kitchen drawers?

I had a dresser slide die a slow death… Found ball bearings around it for months before it really became noticably scrapy when pulling it out.

Do you have children? Any toddlers? That’s my reason for finding random things around the house

I know you don’t have any pellet/Bebe guns in the house but do you have young boys? Possibly one of their friends?

100% looks like aluminum/steel bebe gun ammo. I know first hand that if you spill those 😬 you’re bound to find stragglers in the future lol.
