Here's a quick way I came up with to have pencils and pens readily available in different places throughout the house.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

Rectangular Eraser

Xacto Knife

Pencil, pen (small diameter works best given the dimensions of standard erasers)

Pushpin

3M Foam-backed Removable Adhesive Mounting Squares

 

Optional: Lightweight ruler or letter opener

....been looking for a way to hold an Ipad / phone stylus pen (rubber tipped type) in a convenient place in my car. This gives me a great idea to adapt to. Thank you for posting.
What a great idea! Sometimes the simplest ideas are the most elegant. I'm making a bunch for home and my workshop. In the shop, I've made some with the self-adhesive magnetic material on the back, so they stick to the big power tools (and the fridge!)

Great idea - perfect timing. I was just trying to think of a way to attach the cords for my phone and headset charger to my bedside table so the ends are handy to plug then in and charge over night. Perfect use for the eraser I never use but couldn't toss. Thanks

Let's see....one for the fridge, one for the freezer, one by the phone, one by....
...the computer, one on the stove, one in every cabinet, one on every door, one on the toaster, one on the mantel, one on the laptop, one on the cell phone, one on the dashboard, one under the hood, one in the trunk, one in the suitcase...
