Looking for a funky way to keep pencils organised? An old restaurant straw dispenser could be all you need to keep them tucked away and easily accessible at the same time.
Etsy user ChompMonster cleaned up an old straw dispenser, added a label for pencils and put it up for sale. Given that a pencil is roughly the same length and diameter as a drinking straw, it should work flawlessly. The toughest part is finding an old straw dispenser (you can find them on eBay, but they're not particularly cheap).
