Do pens go wandering about in your house and get lost or can you always find one when you need it?

They do go missing, but we keep so many spare ones we can always find one when we need it.

I have a pen, pencil and highlighter in every bag (yes those I go out socially with); so I'm never caught short of finding a pen at any given moment. Perhaps my penchant for stationery or perhaps my overzealous and meticulous mind constantly at work or more to the truth - both.

My husband on the other hand always loses pens and is constantly getting a new pen out of my stationery cupboard; whereby we will invariably end up with 20 pens living in a bowl on our kitchen table. That is, until my OCD tendencies take over and with one clean swoop they're collected and returned to my stationery cupboard.

I do think our house is a pen magnet as we end up with such a cross section of collectibles from hotels, flights, work, gym and even cafes !
Yes, I find it difficult to keep a close tab on pens. They go missing quite often.
I have one close to my desk, and it is on a string with lots and lots of duct tape.

So it is always on hand.You also can get from a good newsagent 'bank pens'.

They are about $4.50 on a chain! ....I like to do my own, save $3.50....

I'm cheap!
Yes, I do. Why is this such a common problem?
Sometimes but I have so many. I usually find them at a later date.
Not anymore I don't.

I used to but now I have pen stands in several places and make sure I put them in the holder as I have some valuable pens as it is something I collect and use.

Because I'm a writer and ideas can hit at anytime, anywhere, and I keep finding pens on my leaflet rounds in the streets, I have one at the kitchen bench, one on the small table, one at the computer, etc.
No. They're kept corralled in pen holders, so don't tend to 'vamoose'. Keep a Parker 75 in my wallet. Have owned it since 1980!
