Fun with Office Supplies: Paper Clip Holders

paper clip and single-pencil holder, green, human shape

If you've got paper clips scattered all over the place — or if you have one of those boring paper clip holders sold at big box office supply stores — you might want to look at some fun ways to corral those clips. The one above is called the Desk Knight.


This car-shaped paperweight and clip holder comes from Philippi.

Troika, in Germany, has so many fun choices that it's hard to pick just one. This car is sold by The Black and White Gift Shop in Australia. Liberty in the U.K. has the Troika ocean liner and red racing car. Morphose in Germany has the motorcycle, the excavator, and more. [via Retro to Go]

Cynthia, I love the bobble heads, too. And they were the last ones I found - I almost missed seeing them.

Love the paperclip man! Funny.

I prefer glass containers over plastic for long term storage in the freezer, however, it tends to be so expensive.=(

Love the photos! They are wonderful. Photos speak louder than words. Thanks for sharing.
