These aren't just ordinary hair-elastics-turned-pencil-holders! They're color coordinated so you can group your pencils by need. Now you'll never confuse your pencils with broken points with your pencils that ran out of eraser!

Keep your tape handy and look good doing it! Perfect for professional house painters and people whose posters keep falling down.

12. Paper clips = silver(ish) earrings

13. Cotton balls = shoe shrinker

Stuff these babies in the toes of your shoes and you'll shrink 'em a whole size smaller! That way you can get away with wearing enormous shoes without feeling like they're going to fall off. Merry Christmas, you clown!
