  1. Karen says:

    I store pens in just about anything, but my favorite is a holder that I created with my children yaars ago. I used a small terra cotta plant pot which I covered in caulk and then glued various colored rocks to the caulk. I have had it for years. It holds everything from pens, pencils highlighters, etc.

  2. party bags says:

    In my case, I use old containers in keeping my pens. Too bad my cousins are getting them from where I keep it.

  3. SavannahSeana says:

    OOOoooohhhhh. Awesome, hope I win!!!! :) I store my pens in several places, cup, desktop organizer, and in a drawer. THIS PRIZE MADE MY EYES GO WIDE :)

  4. astorey says:

    In my hair behind my ear. Need somewhere to keep them I end up loosing them

  5. Carol Lee says:

    Have some pens in a wire bin on my desk, but there are also pens in my middle desk drawer, as well as the side desk drawer. What a wonderful little thing to have on your desk!! How cute is that trash can!!

  6. Megan says:

    I keep my pens in a cup on the counter. I still have some of my pentel pens from when I was 10 years old and am currently 33. They last forever!

  7. Rochelle says:

    I put most of my pens in a Smiley Face mug that I once received flowers delivery in. It’s a happy memory of getting flowers and it’s nice to look over and see “someone” smiling back. I’m trying to locate this pen holder to give-aways as prizes for Lean Six Sigma waste removal exercises. How can I order?

  8. Mary says:

    That is just about the cutest holder I’ve ever seen! Thanks for sharing.

  9. lana says:

    Just all over the houe along with Sticky Notes ever since the family own Cell Phones!!

  10. Amanda Hall says:

    Yay! Thats me! I emailed you back!

  11. Jackie says:

    Storing my pens…….what the heck does that mean. I have pens laying everywhere, on tables, counter, desk, computer and yes, even in coffee cups. Help me!

  12. Jacob R says:

    My pencils and pens are stored in a unique bowl I made out of clay just for my pencils. I love it and it looks great.

  13. Dorothy Davidson says:

    In a frozen orange juice can that the kids decorated, years ago.

  14. Lorie says:

    I currently keep my pens in a pencil holder that i purchased and my overflow is in my drawer.

  15. Joanne says:

    Hey how about Shoplet, you make these little bins available for purchase!!! some of might consider that.

    thanks!

  16. Joanne says:

    ah gee, I’m sad… I missed the drawing. My pens are all over the place, @ work, in a drawer, in a cup and scattered about the desk. @ home, in at least 3 cups, and here and there on counters.

    that’s what I get for having a long weekend.

    thanks!

  17. Evelyn says:

    At the University i tried to get them bins and some have mugs but in all we have a mess this would help me out a lot.

  18. Steve says:

    A mini USC Football Helmet

  19. Krishna says:

    I store my pens in empty cans (canned food cans).

  20. Customized Mobility says:

    Our office uses a desktop organizer, but somehow the pens find their way throughout the office. I am lucky to find one where it should be.

  21. Meghan Finley says:

    I stick all my pens in my favorite mug. This would be much handier though! @immortalb4

  22. Barb says:

    My husband thinks we need them EVERYWHERE; coffee mugs, cans, and magnetic plastic dollar store boxes on the fridge that break easily. The recycle bin is by far the coolest and would deserve to be seen, and even better that it’s full of the GOOD pens by PENTEL!

  23. Shannon says:

    Been tweeting and didn’t know if I needed/should be posting each tweet here…?? Been trying to tweet & let others know about this great giveaway! @luv_mydachshund

    I store my pens in my desk drawer..all askew.

  30. Andrea L says:

    First I put them in a pencil box but my pens multiplied and the pencil box was too small. Then I rubber banded all of them and left them on my drafting table. They would roll off onto the floor. So, now that they are on the floor, I can see which ones I want to use. It is a bit messy. But it’s an interesting selective process.

  31. Elsa says:

    My top right desk drawer is a MESSS! its full of pens and pencils soooo unoganized :(.

  32. Tammy says:

    I hold all me pens in my Hog’s Breath Cocktails cup from Key West, FL
    Everytime I reach for a pen, I think of margaritas and wish I was in Key West.

  33. clare says:

    I keep my pencils/pens/scissors in a big watering can on my desk ( I teach third grade!!).

  34. Aquaria says:

    I use a coffee cup that was part of the swag I got at a book convention. I’ve no idea who the writer is. Never read anything by her. Hadn’t even looked at what the cup actually said in years, so I was surprised that it wasn’t from the swag I got working at the job I retired from!

  39. Angel Hsiung says:

    lay them out neatly on the counter

  40. Kirsten says:

    I have one of those coffee cups with pictures of your family on it. Probably from snapfish or Shutterfly. That holds my pens. My permanent markers go into a clay flower pot that my daughter painted and decorated for me years ago.

  41. Jan says:

    Let’s see, I have pens/pencils in 3 coffee mugs, a vase, an actual mesh pencil holder(what was I thinking), a leather-like tray, desk drawers, zip bag in my purse, and lying loose everywhere. I.need.to.have…pencils, pens, my pentel erasers, scissors and gluesticks handy no matter where I am, as I’m much too lazy to cross the room in search of these much-used items. I have clocks everywhere, too. Do you see a pattern developing here?

  42. Marguerite D says:

    Pens? What pens?

  43. Donna Colucci says:

    I store my pens in a fancy pen holder I was given last Christmas. Unfortunately, the ornate design allows the pens to fall through the holder and drop to the floor. Very frustrating! I need this adorable recycling bin!!

  44. Keith Anderson says:

    I have some on the desk… some in an old Emerald Nut container, some in My disk drawer… some in an old mug on a table in my office… Am I a disorganized packrat or what???

  45. Joan M says:

    I use an old ceramic tumbler.

  46. Amy says:

    Because I am the secretary at a church, people constantly need pens. Even thought I keep some on my desk, no one ever uses those, they get into my drawer and I lose my pens. Usually, through, they are just scattered about on my desk.

    I currently use a swivel storage container but its packed!!!!!!!!!!

  49. Ghee says:

    I love pens, and collect them every where I go. Especially the free ones from offices. I store them in two large coffee mugs, which are often knocked over by my grandchildren. It would be nice to have a recycle bin.

  50. Melissa says:

    Always on the look out for storage for supplies….never enough. Linked this post on my blog

  51. GG says:

    I store them everywhere!! on my desk in my purse in!! I love pens.

  52. Barbara says:

    I have a flower pot with dried beans in it on my desk to store my pens. Students keep walking away with the pens so this would be very useful.

  53. Terrie Iverson says:

    I have my pens stored in cups, jars and drawers. I have my favorite “no glob” pens in my pocket so they are on hand for sketching!

  54. Connie says:

    At work my pens start out in an organizer but by the end of the day they are all over the place. I have to hide my favorites in my desk drawer or they disappear!

  55. Susan K. says:

    I have an organizer on my desk and in my desk drawer. I’m a little bit
    of a pen fanatic. One for every event of the year.

  56. LeavyBc says:

    I currently use a S&W 12 oz. French Roast coffee can. I also have an old/vintage pen collection which I store in an old wooden cigar box.

  57. Cathy says:

    In 2 pen/pencil holders on my desk. The holder at home is from my old company (yuck) and I have to look at it everytime I need a pen!

  58. Julie says:

    Current storage: cleaned out tin cans!! All lined up in a row.

  59. susie says:

    mine are kept in a pen bag in my purse and I have a pen holder on my desk.

  60. CHARLOTTE says:

    My pens are in my center drw rolling around. Can never find them-need help!

  61. Deb Bell says:

    I have a pen fettish and have since I was a kid. I have tons of pens but I have a select few that I keep hidden in my office so no one else uses them. I can’t tell you where I hide them just in case someone from my office wants to find them! LOL!!!

  62. SooGarvz says:

    First off, I love pens – all kinds, shapes and sizes. Second, this recycling bin thing is super-cute, plus we recycle pens at work through Terracycle – check out their site for starting a recycling program through work. They donate 2 cents for each pen collected to a charity of your choice. Number three, at work I use a pen cup, because they gave me one, but at home – they’re just lying all over the place.

  63. CHERYL E. says:

    I have a couple of holders on my desk. For pens and pencils I have a big mesh cup. Then I have a mug for sharpies and another one for highlighters. I have another mesh holder on a table for others to use and a cute wooden scottie terrier on my counter. People are always walking off with my pens and that’s why I have so many holders in my office. The pen that I use most often lays on my desk or is my hand when I’m away from my desk because I don’t want anybody walking off with it!

  64. Angella says:

    We store our pens in the covers of CD spindles.

  65. Joy Godsey says:

    I have to scrounge around to find any pens in the office and, of course, no one leaves a pentel pen around. They write so much better.

  66. Sharon F. says:

    My daughter & I have things in several spots at home… in several misc. containers. I have several fun coffee mugs at work that hold everything. They are all over-flowing too. One of my mugs says “I only work here for the free pens and rubber bands”. A recycling bin would be a fabulous addition. Something new & eye-catching!! :O)

  67. Jason Brown says:

    No storage just a mess of pens every where.

  68. mel says:

    I store my pens in 2 coffee mugs, since they won’t fit in just 1 any longer.

  69. KATHIE says:

    I am a pen frea! If you saw my desk you would know what I mean. I have 4 large containers on my desk, plus more in the drawer. BUT…don’t think that means I don’t need this prize. I DO!!!!

  70. RP says:

    I store my pens in a drawer tray organizer, but it is usually overflowing out of the intended pen area!

  71. Holli says:

    Mine are in a Dixie cup on my desk and scattered all around. I have some hanging on dtring from pens attached to my wall so that I can find at least one while I am on the phone. They can also usually be found in my hair, pocket, purse, behind my ear, etc.

  72. Laura B says:

    My pens lay haphazardly about my desk. I have no system. I need a system!

  73. Sheryl Edwards says:

    follow & tweet @textiff

  74. Judy says:

    My pens are in an ordinary mug and they would love to be in your trash bin.

  75. Janice says:

    in a cup at work

  76. Bryan F says:

    I have the ugliest container (desk organizer) where my pens are stored. Maybe they are embarrassed to be there, because they never seem to work when I need one.

    Most of my pens are tossed into a kitchen drawer. On my desk, the pens are helter-skelter any ol’ place. You’ve inspired me to get my pen act together.

  82. Sheryl Edwards says:

    I use two coffee mugs to store my pens, pencils, scissors, etc.

  83. Natalie J. Vandenberghe says:

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  84. Pen lost says:

  85. Amy Wells says:

    I store my pens in a Longaberger basket right now. I get very frustrated when my fmily leaves caps off and ink gets on the basket!

  86. rhonda says:

    I have an inexpensive copper colored pail (without handles) on top of my desk. Holds at least 50 pens, pencils, highlighters, etc…

  87. JonelB says:

    Currently my pens are all over. Pen cases, cups, etc, but my favorite were in a striped target pen case that was constantly in my purse.
    Well, it was stolen last week along with my purse, and the idiot likely dumped them somewhere where they’ll never be found.
    I’m honestly mourning the collection of my favorites, which included several pentel energels and sliccis that I’d slowly collected over the years.

    I corral the variety of pens, markers, pencils, and correction pens in a very nifty Shrek head mug received as a white elephant gift several years back. Not sure if it’s the ogre himself or the fact that I give stern looks to anyone even thinking about taking one of my pens.

  179. Kay says:

    my pens are in 3 coffee cups on my desk

  180. Susan says:

    My pens are in an old metal pen holder. My better pens like Pentel are in my drawer so they don’t walk off!! It’s always good to see you at GSA Expo every year!! Thanks for the support!

  181. Joanne C says:

    I keep my pens and “stuff” in recycled soup cans and cat food cans I covered in a bright cheery fabric and adorned with matching bows. I’ve made other recycled holders for other coworkers but using scrapbook paper instead of fabric (and often made to match a colorful set of folders). The latest set for someone who wanted funky and natural included a can with a blue sky paper, sand paper beach edged in tiny pebbles and sea shells and dark green twine pulled apart into separate strands as seaweed. – However, there are the boring folks using mugs and prefabricated mass produced desk organizers. I don’t think they would have as much fun as me with colored pens. The recycle “bucket” is adorable and would make a great holder in our lunch room for the soda can flip tops that one of our employees collects for a charity. Feel free to send it our way ant time you want!

  182. Kelli says:

    I have a huge collection of pens, pencils and markers that is stored in a crafting bag. On my desktop I have a pink storage container with four drawers with highlighters, gel pens, markers and pencils.

  183. jean b says:

    my favorite type of pens

  184. SARAH says:

    I keep my pens in a pencil cup….except for my FAVORITE ones…I hide them under my keyboard so they can’t get out and walk away!

  185. Jamie McD says:

    I have heavy duty magnets stuck to my metal overhead bin; then I let the metal clips on the pens stick to the magnets. Everything is just a grab away and not cluttering up my desk.

  186. Christina D says:

    I keep my pens in a large cup.

  187. Jaque says:

    I keep my pens in an organizer, but it’s not nearly as cool as this recycle bin. Plus I work for a contractor that does environmental clean up, so it would be the envy of all the office!!

  188. Edward says:

    My pens are all over the lab counters. I tend to leave them all over the place. Always hoping to have one there when I need one. But that never happens.

  189. Stephen Levy says:

    Pens etc spread across desk organizer, coffee mug and peanut tin.

  190. Lisa S says:

    I keep my pens in my desk drawer. I have a few in an organizer on my desk. I put out the blue ink pens for people to use because…I don’t like to use blue ink! I know it doesn’t make much sense because I regularly use purple ink in the office.

  191. Kayla says:

    I don’t really have a spot for pens. For the most part, I just take one if I see it laying somewhere in the house or office.

  192. Colleen says:

    I put my pens, scissors and hi-lighters in a glass jar which I inherited from the previous Controller 8 years ago. I’m looking at it now and thinking not very safe!!!

  193. Lee says:

    I am not talking trash, I LOVE PENTEL PENS! LOVE the “green” idea of keeping in a trash can!!!

  194. Brad says:

    At work I keep them in a zip lock bag in my desk.

  195. Brad says:

    I keep my pens in a coffee cup! This would be much cooler!!

  198. Shannon says:

    oh my gosh, how cute is that? I <3 it!!

    Right now my pens just float around actually….here and there and if I'm lucky they might make it into a drawer but this would really be so cute sitting on my desk!

    I store my extras in a cup except for the one I currently use. That one is neatly placed next to my computer. I use one pen at a time until it is out of ink. Can you say OCD?

  237. Jenn P says:

    My pens are in a messy pile on my desk. Usually. Other times they have rolled onto the floor.

    Currently I have an overflowing section in my desk drawer (FULL of pens) and on top of my desk I have a little replica wooden bucket that is full of pens. Unfortunately, these are pens my kids have snagged from different places, and there are very few ‘good’ pens…like Pentel pens!
