Be honest.

Somewhere in your house, there's a stash of pens that don't write. Where do you keep them? :)

Mine are in a cup by the phone. Why? I don't know!

  • My issue is that I KNOW I have at least a hundred of them,but I can never find one! I keep buying them and they disappear on me!

  • I have them in a pottery vase I made. Right now it is on the kitchen counter, but usually it is on the lamp table in the family room.

  • in my dh's office closet. they're his, and i don't know why he insists on keeping them. he used to have them set up in a pharmaceutical-rep's coffee mug..i think it advertises some bp medicine..when we moved, i kept it in the boxes that 'we don't have space for in the house' and all those boxes, filled with dh-stuff, are in the office closet.

  • They were in the kitchens junk drawer.. But the junk drawer got dumped in a box that lives on top of the freezer in the laundry room.

  • I think I have a form of OCD. I go through me stuff constantly because I like to get rid of things...I don't have ANY pens that don't write. I go through my drawer of pens about once a year to get rid of all the bad ones.
