Do you want a place to hang your pens, pencils, or dry erase markers on your cubicle wall? Well, this article will show you how with a video and images of an Officemate Verticalmate Hanging Pencil Cup that I use on my own cubicle wall.
A Hanging Pencil Cup is a Versatile Accessory
If you have read the articles on this site at all, you certainly know how much of a fan I am of cubicle wall accessories. If you check out the image above it is showing one of my cubicle walls to the right of my chair in my office at work. The arrow is pointing to my hanging pencil holder.
But, as you can see, I don’t use it for pencils. I use it for my dry erase markers and eraser next to my hanging magnetic dry erase board. I just thought that would be a better use for the wall pencil holder from Officemate.
Cubicle Wall Accessories can Free up Your Desktop
I have a number of different wall accessories that I use within my own cubicle at work such as my ever-popular cubicle shelf, hanging corner shelf unit, flat panel monitor cubicle hanger, hanging letter tray, etc.
Here’s a look at a few of them that I have hanging in my cubicle. I do have many more accessories in my cubicle that you can check out.
My Cubicle Corner Shelf, Cubicle Utility Bowl, and Hanging Pencil Holder
Needless to say, I am a huge proponent of expanding the real estate of a small office, particularly a cubicle, by using the walls. This Officemate Verticalmate Pencil Cup will not only allow you to use your walls but it will also free up your limited desk space.
I also think you shouldn’t limit this cup to storing only pencils. As you will see in my video below, I store my scissors, pens, pencils, and dry erase markers in this versatile cubicle wall accessory. There is no limit on what you can put in this pencil cup.
Maybe you want to hang a silk or real flower in this versatile product. I’m sure you can think of many different items that you may want to store in this pencil cup. How about storing your reading glasses or letter opener in this container. The possibilities are endless!
