I Love Office Supplies

    I Can Hang Around Officemax For Hours

    I love to browse office supplies. All of it- the desks, the swivel chairs, the post-its, the pens (OMG the pens!), the tape, the paper, all of it. I'm a huge nerd, but it's one of the small things that makes me happy.

    I Love Office Supplies So Much I Mave More Post-it Notes Than I Could Ever Use In A Life Time

    When I open up the supply closet the post-it notes just fall out, I use them as book marks, reminders for myself and everyone else, I've even used them to hang the Grand Children's pictures on the frige. LOL

    Professional Childhood

    I've always understood why office supplies have a 'anything can be done' shine to me. It started when I was about 5 years old, maybe younger but I do remember this in particular- My father would take me to his office on the military base in London, Ontario from time to time. In...

    Yeah, Office Supplies

    I love office supplies and shopping for them at the office supply store. I also like auto parts stores (though I know nothing about fixing cars) for the same reason. Is this odd?

    Oh Holy Office Supplies

    I love testing out new office supplies.  The smell is one-of-a-kind.  New notebooks, pens, everything.  I drool every time I shop for office supplies in bulk because there are too many things to choose from and so little time.  I enjoy using office supplies...

    Gel Highlighers

    I bought a set of gel highlighters. I do not like them. It feels like I am using a yellow crayon. It is too wide over on the word. Plus, there is a fading on the edge of the highlighted areas. This was an example of how I wanted something because the package lead me to believe...
