    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!!!!

  2. mel says:

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

  3. Jason Brown says:

    No storage just a mess of pens every where.

  4. 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)

  5. 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.

  6. Angella says:

    We store our pens in the covers of CD spindles.

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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!!!

  10. CHARLOTTE says:

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

  11. susie says:

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

  12. Julie says:

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

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. GG says:

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

  20. Melissa says:

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

  21. 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.

  22. Melissa says:

    Forgot to leave a link to my blog…..

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

  24. 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.

  25. Joan M says:

    I use an old ceramic tumbler.

  26. 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???

  27. 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!!

  28. Marguerite D says:

    Pens? What pens?

  29. 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.…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?

  30. 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.

  31. Angel Hsiung says:

    lay them out neatly on the counter

  32. Marissa says:

    I store them all of my desk…where ever there is empty space.

  33. Michelle says:

    I store my pens in a cup.

  36. 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!

  37. clare says:

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

  38. 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.

  39. Elsa says:

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

  40. 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.
