I love office supplies. There, I said it out in the open. I don’t know what it is about them, but I could spend hours (and have come close before) in office supply stores. There’s something good about knowing that I’ll have paper, pens, binders, notebooks, etc. on hand at home whenever the need arises – which is just never anywhere near enough to use the surplus I have amassed. It’s hard to walk around stores and not spend a disproportionate amount of time in the office isles. I just plain enjoy it. Is that weird?
I don’t think so. I have noticed over the past several years that there’s a very close relationship between one’s geek self and the love of office supplies. I can’t think of any of my friends who don’t have this affinity. Maybe it’s just coincidence; maybe it’s some other personality trait linked with office supplies. I’m pretty sure it’s geekiness.
I’ll ponder that as I continue to print and hole-punch and bind my way to organization…

So I’m addicted to Staples.com, what’s your point?
Just another data point, that’s all 🙂
