Smile Trimming/Pruning plants

What device do you all use to trim your plants? I'm looking for something preferably no more then $5 or so.

Thanks!

Depending on the type of plants, most times I use my finger nails or fingers to pinch them off and re-plants. On the more woody stemmed plants like my hygrophila I use a small pair of sharp dubbing shears. I also use a small pair of nail scissors on the more delicate plants.
The scissors I use are clean and only used in my tanks now.
I did buy one of those long handle planting things that has a scissor attachment (cost less than 20 bucks), but I found it easier to just use my hands/fingers for most of it and never use it any more except to grab snails to remove...lol....

I do the same as OldFishLady, I usually use my fingernails and pinch off. However, I have a pair of scissors for aquarium plants only that I use sometimes...

Thanks for the help. I'll go buy a pair of small scissors to use for aquarium only. :)
