A visit to Staples

I'm a bit of an office supply addict. It's all my mother's fault, I suppose. She is a pen snob, and introduced me to the finer points of nice stationery at a very early age.

I really prefer going to the independently owned stationery stores, but as we don't have a good one here, I end up going to Staples. One great thing about Staples is that when they clearance items, they mark them down substantially!  I found the above treasures on my last visit.

4 - hardbacked spiral bound notebooks.  I bought one of each color.  There's also a black one that's not shown, because I couldn't find it when picture time came.  I have a feeling a certain someone nabbed it for work. 

1 - leather covered 6x9 journal.  It had lined paper and a ribbon bookmark, too.  It makes me feel all grown-up.  I'm not sure why, but it does! 

1 - refill for the journal.  

All for just under $13.  I was there for boring stuff like tape and a ream of paper.  When all was said and done, my total was $24.92.  I'm always sure to scour the back aisles thoroughly!

This is something I noticed when I was working on stuff last night.  I guess I like red.

I love, love, love office supplies. I thought I was the only one in the world! :)

I'm totally late, but I'm stopping by from the Alexa Blog hop. Hope you have a great week!
