I have always loved stationary and office supplies. Everybody's got their own thing, right?
I could spend hours in Office Max! I love looking at sales ads for back to school supplies. The line from You've got Mail, "I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils, if I knew your real name and address." I love that line!
Of course there are some office supplies that are my favorites over others. For instance, paper clips. I like the jumbo size, coated paper clips. Jumbo size, so I can be sure it holds my papers better. And coated so it doesn't slip off my papers. I clip and unclip a lot of papers over the course of a day, so I appreciate when they are secure.
Tonight I stopped in at Meijer's and went back to get some more paperclips. I am running low! Sadly, the shelf space was empty for them. I was probably a little more bummed than I should have been about paper clips . . .
Then I turned the corner to check out the end cap of clearance items. And I saw the cutest little binder on clearance! It like a half sheet size. Also on clearance were page protectors that fit the cute little binder! As I continued on I found the papers that fit the cute little binder.
In my budget, I do plan for clearance and super sale spending. And although these weren't the best clearance prices I've ever seen . . and although I really don't need the cute little binder and cute little binder supplies, they came home with me!
Tonight I am thankful for splurging sometimes on silly little things that are just things that I like and make my soul happy. It doesn't have to make logical sense. It is just the way I am!
