Well for one thing some people have a habit of keeping every one regardless of whether or not it actually works..
Are you ready to solve this problem and remove some clutter today? OK this is an easy one. Ready?
Go get a pen that doesn’t write, or a wooden pencil that you’ll never sharpen and THROW IT AWAY.
DO IT. DO IT NOW.
The only writing implements in your bag, on the jar kitchen counter, or in the drawer in your desk, or the basket on your coffee table, should be ones that actually write!
Excellent! You are one step closer to being organized.
PS – also throw away all of the markers and sharpies that are dried up and never let them annoy you ever again when you are halfway through scratching over mailing labels when you’re returning stuff to “OH NO YOU DIDN’T. ”
So how many pens did you toss today?
