Re: Do you really like office-type of things?

I guess I hit the jackpot - when my office closed and I was told to work from home, I got to bring lots of office supplies home with me. It's almost too much stuff now that I'm retired.  I love labels for envelopes and packages, plastic sleeves for recipes I print out and the pens!

Re: Do you really like office-type of things?

if you like EXPENSIVE office stuff i highly recommend the website LEVENGER. they have some beautiful and practical items.

 

that would be a good think for qvc to get into maybe......higher end office/den needs. dont think there has ever been a show like that before.

@Sunshine45  I bought a soft leather key case for my car and house keys from them about 30 years ago. I have been using it all this time.

Yes, I love browsing through the aisles of office supply stores. And when it is school time, I get so excited buying all the supplies on my son's school supply list! I also enjoy browsing through (and buying from) websites and print catalogues of companies, such as the aforementioned Levenger.

Re: Do you really like office-type of things?

I do.  I love all sorts of papers and folders and charts and pens and colored pens and so on and so on. I think I have more of all sorts of office material than I'll ever use.  I even have two wall calendars hanging in my kitchen, one for just gorgeous images (this year it's sailing) and the other is my perennial Farmer's Almanac Gardening calendar on which I write and put some of those same stickers you mentioned, @QualityGal

Love smooth writting pens, large colored paperclips for my calendar which lets me see everything at a glance.

Re: Do you really like office-type of things?

I love those things too - except I call them "school supplies".  I always loved to go school supply shopping with my kids.  And who invented paper clips?  How handy are they?  I prefer the big ones to the small ones, and not color coated either.
