I love shopping for OFFICE SUPPLIES
I just spent 40 minutes browsing in my neighbourhood Staples. I didn't need anything, but I love looking. The 24 pk of multi-coloured Sharpies almost got me, but I restrained myself. They had a great selection of paper clips and some of the coolest staplers I've ever seen.

I think I just found my inner geek.

1. I am an office supply store junkie. I think it appeals to some
fantasy that I have which involves actually living an orderly organized life (which I do not).....all that stuff is just fun to look at.

Container Store is the same way.

2. Those are cool places, aren't they, my dear yvr girl?
I like to wander in them too...

But, you're NO geek!

:loveya: :hug:

3. Pencils. Dixon Ticonderogas and legal pads...
the really nice ones with the stiff backs and the holes in the margins... :loveya:

Office supply stuff gets me hot and bothered too. Perhaps I suffered from pencil box neglect in elementary school. :shrug:

Once you've used it you'll never go back.

4. You sound like the type of person I would enjoy
spending a day with. I can go "window shopping" like nobody's business. Also, I all of a sudden get needs when I am in any office supply store. I never knew I needed a new toner cartridge for the word processor I don't even own until I see it and think how cool it would be to have one. I'm such a sucker for school supplies and office supplies.

5. Would it make you really jealous if I told you...
That I am a General Manager of a Staples?

BTW, if you want to get a laugh from any Staples employee, then after you find what you're looking for, say "That was easy!" We've never heard that one before. :eyes:

7. Discount? HAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!
I get 12% off, one week a quarter. But I get to go to the paper clip aisle and get my fix anytime I need to.

8. That's weird
Does that include big ticket items like computers?

My 2nd job is in a store, and we get a 40% discount.

9. On computers, I get
zilch. Zip. Nada.

It is an extremely well run company, however.
