It keeps my supplies, like marking pens, one-inch rulers, rotary cutters, scissors, handy. Did I look there? Um....
Actually this is exactly where I found them. I'd like to say I have only been missing them for a day or two, but actually it's been more like a week. See?

Haven't Ticonderoga No. 2 pencils been around forever? I must have gotten a bad box because with half of the pencils I sharpen, the lead gets loose and falls out. These pencils are super cute. I hope they aren't crap because I bought a whole package of 10 in the dollar bin at Target.
