Have all (3) of your pens or pencils handy right on the refrigerator door, thanks to this handy instructable...

Like it? Take a moment or two to "+" and allow me the emotional support only a robot shirt can give! :D

I personally have a lot of experience with pens and their dastardly cousins, them pencils. They seem to always escape my grasp especially when I need them the most, whether it be for signing a paper or finishing some homework.
Usually this absence would lead to everyone in our house raiding drawers and cabinets like little viking berserkers withouth the cool hats and helmets and funky armours.
Of course, when I saw that there was a Fridge Magnet Contest, combined with my freakish desire of convenient pens and pencils led me to this creation.
Hopefully, you won't get bit or stung, perhaps a little dazed or trampled.

Needless to say, you will actually need to provide your own materials.
Unfortunately, this doesn't mean you can raid dumpsters for the supplies needed.

Step 2: Test Magnet Strength

A short step, simply place your magnets in any formation and see if it sticks onto the refrigerator door.

Step 3: Seperating the Magnets

I dunno why I make so many short little steps, but it seems to work.

Basically now, you seperate the magnets from the -- well whatever it's connected to. If its not connected to anything, congratulations, you've got better magnets that me :P
