supply-a-holic's paradise

every gal has her weakness.....for some it's shoes, for others it's handbags, and for me..... it's office supplies. all it takes is a quick glance at the selection that's available these days to make me a little light-headed and get my heart beating faster. like these pens and pencils, for example.....i could easily take a box of each......


and then decide which combination of these colorful little gems to write a sweet note on.


now most stores even have their own art section with fun goodies to make your journal pages sing.....


but the best part is the vast selection of sweet rewards that's waiting for you at the check-out counter.....for a little snackie on the way home!

Ok, now I feel better. I thought I was the only one who loved office supplies. I see I'm in good company. My husband just doesn't understand the "need" for more pens, papers, sticky notes, etc. lol. Now he just accepts it.

Oh my, you nailed it....I love office supplies too! I have to ask you....as a kid did you love that FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL with all your fresh notebooks and new designed folders??? AAhhhhhhhhh

This is a bitter sweet one for me. I love office supply stores and art stores. However, my life is sooooo busy, I really don't have time to engage in projects like I did a few years ago.

I have a girlfriend that lives across the street. Her toy store is Home Depot. Yes, she loves tools! When she runs out of projects at her house, she comes to mine and I get a personal contractor!...:-D

I'm wondering if we are long lost twins. I went to Target last night and almost fainted when their scrapbooking, paper, notebooks, stickers, embellies section was all on Clearance!! I filled my basket...but got home and wondered why I didn't get more!! Ack! I'm playing with the notebooks and oh, the pens! The markers! Oh my...♥

Office supply stores are way better than candy stores. I have no will power when it comes to post-it notes and Sharpie markers.

What a great place to run into each other...the office supply store. :)

Crystal said...

Oh yes, Lori . . .

I feel your palpitations, Girl.

Craft stores, yarn shops, and fabric stores can have the same effect!

Joy + Inspiration = BLISS!

Hugs,
Crystal :-)

How comforting to know I am not alone in my delight to study every aisle of the office supply stores and of course after all that shopping a little snack to reenergize is perfect. Thank you for sharing.

I too do not have my heart fluttering for shoes or bags. Mine is paper or art supply stores. Even if I don't need anything at all, I drop in "just to look." They don't have sweets though.

I wish I could come shopping with you...and snacking too! xoxo's Paulette ;)

I think this is why I never became a doctor or a lawyer, and instead work in an office - the office supply CATALOG!! I'm also lucky enough to work literally across the street from Staples and often go there on my lunch break just to "look." Glad I'm not the only one who loves that place!

rachel awes said...

i love this real tour with you of all the kinds of things that delight us!! these kind of collections ARE eye candy to me too, & i guess also literal candy with your last pic!! yum.

I am off to Staples this afternoon. I suppose to only get some colored copy paper for my office . . . but we all know that there will be more in my basket than that!
