We're Addicted To...

I had to laugh when I read the Paid, Professional Nudge post on the hidden addiction of administrative assistants - but only because it rings so true for me!  What is it you're wondering?  No, it isn't coffee.  And it isn't taking long breaks.  It's...

That's right.  Admit it.  You are addicted. to. office supplies!  You'd loll around the aisles at Staples during back-to-school week like Madonna in her "Like a Virgin" video if they'd let you.  You can detail the pros & cons of paper vs. electronic planners like a lawyer presenting at the United States Supreme Court.  You'd shame Alex Trebek on Jeopardy!

When I read her post I laughed because I am obsesses with anything office supply related.  For me, the store of choice is Grand & Toy.  I used to go there on my lunch hour for fun.  It never failed to relax me and yes, I quite often came out with a treat or two.

One of my favorite things was the Breast Cancer notebooks.  They are great.  There are so many to choose from and the way they are laid out seems perfect for writing.  I also love anything that will "help" me get and stay organized.  Desk calendars, pen holders, file storage - and the prettier the better.  And don't forget organizers.

I remember last year when the new organizers came in I fell in love with a leather bound organizer that came in red.  I couldn't wait to get it so on payday I was practically standing on their doorstep waiting for them to open.  I bought it and then went back to work and showed my students.  They thought I was kinda weird - but that's ok. I am. :)
