Default QOTD: 04/29 Office Supplies

Are there any office supplies that you can't live without? That you buy a lot of? What do you use the most?

I'm such a geek LOL. I love to wander thru an office supply store. I have always had a thing for pens, especially fine point, and am always looking for new ones. I also love markers and highlighters and always have a stash of them on my desk with extras in the drawer so I never run out.

I like to keep lists of CT duties and use highlighters to keep track of whats been done and posted, and each duty is highlighted with a different color. I keep the pages in a binder, kept on a little table beside my computer desk.

I write a lot of notes/lists so have a stash of different colored, different sizes post-its and note pads.

Pens!!! I just bought some new ones yesterday to make my Monday happy! I get them in multiple colors and pick a different one each day, usually to match the outfit Iím wearing.

My daughter is seriously an office supply addict. Her favorite store is Office Depot. I'm a sticky note gal- I like lots of colors & sizes to choose from!

I do like sticky notes and am picky about my pens. I also love notebooks and always have a few around. Love office supplies but try to curtail my spending there so I can spend more on scrappy supplies.

I love notebooks and planners too. Recently stumbled across digital versions of both so Iíve been playing with those lately.

I'm going to buy a new one tomorrow too

I'm not super into office supplies despite being an administrative assistant in an office.

Pens, specifically the Pilot GTech and Pentel Hybrid Technica point 3 and point 4 as well as Pigma Micron 01.When I was in college I used to always bring an extra because a classmate might borrow and not return it anymore, hehe. Also notebooks. I horde on books, notebooks and pens and post it. I passed it on to my daughter who loves to collect pretty pencils and small notebooks. My order of Pentel Hybrid just came this afternoon, it was an extra that I want to keep just in case my husband misplace my current one. Again.

My parents used to use the office supply isle in Drug Mart as a babysitter for me when they shopped. I love it all! I think I hyperventilated when OfficeMax first opened.

I love notebooks, but once I buy them, I don't want to use them and mess them up. I have all these beautiful blank notebooks in a stack on my desk and sticky notes and bits of paper every where with chicken scratch on them. I swear it's a sickness and as a result my desk and I are an unorganized mess!

oh, almost forgot about pens. Or should I say pen. There is only one that I will use at work and they order them especially for me. Uni-ball Signo Gel Grip in blue. I use one at a time until the ink is gone and then get a new one from my stash. I am pretty territorial about my pen and even have a pen holder with "decoys" on my desk so no one "borrows" mine. And before you ask, yes, I am crazy.

I'm a list maker.... myself and my bro are addicted to making lists (including lists of lists that need to be made) so Notebooks, & Legal pads.... I have two drawers in my xl desk full of them, and I am starting to panic that there's not enough. I also have a lot of packs of pens. I am picky about pens (how they feel and how they write) so when it's back to school time I always stock up on my favorites while they are on sale. I think Thumb tacks are next on my most purchased list..... not because I use lots, but I always lose the container, buy a new one, then find the old one(s) LOL

Gemma....that cracked me up LOL I am the same way about my pens. I won't tell hubs what I spend on pens, I just say I had to pick up a variety of office supplies and printer ink b/c that always justifies cranking the bill up

i love the Pentel, Pigma and Pilot too. I am also picky about where my pens are kept. If anyone borrows one of "my" pens (not the cheap household ones), then they must put it back where they got it from.

I love that pen too and always get blue. Nope not crazy....I too am fanatical about others borrowing "my" pens, heaven help them if they don't return it to where they got it.

Papermate Flair pens, post-its, and Moleskine dot-grid notebooks. Oh, and I wouldn't turn down some colorful binder clips.

Wow! I thought I was the only one obsessed with school supplies/office supplies. The type of person attracted to scrapbooking must be the same as attracted to office supplies since so many of us share this obsession. I'm totally going to order some of the pens mentioned on this thread and give them a try.

It fills me with joy to hear that I'm not the only one with a favorite pen!!!!!! My favorite every day pen is the Bic Cristal 1.6mm. It has the most glorious weight to it and writes as smooth as a baby's bum! haha

Pencils! I love love love a freshly sharpened pencil with a nice eraser. I have a ton of them at home and I keep one in my planner at all times. I'd so much rather use a pencil than a pen. I also love paper pads... nothing fancy, just a plain 8.5x11 lined notepad. They make me happy.

Pens are my main addiction, but not just regular office supply pens. I can take or leave those. It's fancy pens that get me. I've been using glitter pens off Etsy for a few years. As you write the glitter moves around and the light sparkles...so pretty! Recently I won a couple of pens as part of a stationery prize at a baby shower. I have to ask where she got them, because they write beautifully and I need more. They're the first non-glitter pens I've been willing to use for a while. Here are my pen addictions.



I love to browse pretty notebooks, but I don't buy too many. I've learned that if I splurge on the expensive ones, I don't use them because I feel like I need to save them for something special! But every year around back to school time they have pretty notebooks at reasonable prices so that's when I buy. I've also ordered a Shutterfly notebook that has family photos and scrapbook papers collaged on the cover. I love it so much that I can't use it, LOL!

I like writing with pencils better than pens, too!!
I had bought some that I loved, and haven't been able to find them again. That made me sad. LOL!
