Office Depot? Brand Color Paper Clip Dispensers, Assorted, Pack Of 3
good, if you like shaking every clip out
This does hold paperclips rather well (so long as you don't knock it over or touch it). The problem is that the magnet isn't strong enough. Every time I turn it over to shake the clips to the top, half of them fall out. I think an open tray may work better than this.

Should have read the reviews!
Wish I'd read the reviews before I purchased! I agree with the previous reviews -- they hold a good number of paperclips, but the magnets are not strong enough. Very disappointed.

Magnet is very Weak!!!
I was very dissapointed that the magnet doesn't hold the paperclips at all. The only reason I got it and it's pretty worthless.
If you want a holder ok.

I will agree with an earlier reviewer that these dispensers do, indeed hold an adequate number of paperclips. I will add that it beats letting them scatter all over the desk. However, the magnets in these things are deficient and don't even have the strength to hold up the clips. I end up cupping my hand over the top of the dispenser and up-ending it to catch a couple of clips. Not really quite what I had intended. I'm also appalled by the price of these things - 3 little measly plastic dispenses with inadequate magnets for ten bucks? For ten bucks I can get something that at least has some visual style if not more functional.
