If you would like to do a general survey of how my Instructables are on my account, you can find that at It would mean a lot to me if you did one or both of these. Thank you and enjoy!

Step 1: How I Came Up With This Project

Like many people, I find it hard to stay completely organized in my office space. I am always trying to make little improvements so that I can stay more organized and find things when I need them. One of the things that drives me crazy is when I need a pen and all I can find is a pencil (and vice versa), or I just cannot find something to write with in general. I'm sure that you can relate to this.

So, in the process of me thinking about how to fix this problem I was having, I received an email from Instructables with an Instructable titled, "Unusual Uses for Zip Ties". It was written by mikeasaurus, who is part of the Instructable Staff. (Link to his instructable: He was offering a free pro membership to any unique ideas that people created, so I thought "Why not...".

So here is my idea for office organization with Zip Ties...Enjoy!

Step 2: My Unusual Use of Zip Ties Creation


First, I created a handy tool to use in your office with zip ties. It will help you stay organized and keep your office looking nice and neat! In order to create this

Step 3: What You Need

You will need the following:

1. Office Supplies (Pens, Sharpies, etc.)

2. One Zip Tie for each grouping of office supplies. (For example, you could do a grouping for sharpies and another grouping for pens)

Step 4: The Final Product

And this is the final product. Adjust the size of the circle if you are adding more or fewer pens to it.

Now you will never need to struggle to find your writing utensils anymore! Isn't that a relief!
