    "keep for future use"

    Suppose that your friend is talking to you now. He knows you have a lot of brand new binders and asks you where they are.

    You friend asks, "Where are all your brand new binders?"

    I reply, "I keep them in my drawer for future use."

    Is it correct to use the simple present of the verb, to keep? Thanks for your help.

    Yes, that's one possible tense.
