Where Are Those Scissors?

TDS Reader Contributors

"I was wondering if anybody had any good organization tips. I need tips specifically on organizing small things like pens, pencils, paperclips, rubber bands, markers, rulers, tape, that kind of thing. It seems like we have these everywhere in our house and many times I have a hard time trying to look for a ruler, or tape, or that one pair of scissors."
