I might have an obsession

I think I might have a problem.

As many of you know, I love school/office supplies. There is nothing like getting a new notebook, pack of pens, Post-its, or paper clips. The other day I was cleaning my home office and noticed that I had a lot of Post-its/notepads, Sharpie markers and paper clips.

Justin has been making fun of me for a while about the amount of Post-its/notepads and Sharpies I have. I have always responded by saying, "The reason I have a lot is because I use a lot of post-its/notepads and Sharpies." After seeing all my post-its/notepads and Sharpies I will have to admit that I have a post-its/notepads and Sharpies problem. I knew I had a lot but I didn't know just how much until I put them all in one place. Take a look at all my post-its/notepads and Sharpies as well as a few of my other favorite office supplies.

Before you make fun of me you must know that I really do use these on a regular basis. I am always jotting a note on a post-it or making a list on a note pad and I use my Sharpies to make those notes and lists. I am a little embarrassed that I do have an unopened package of Sharpies, but I know those too will be used soon.

Now here is where I would have say that I have gone overboard. I don't really use paperclips that much nor do I use the pushpins that much either. When I am at the store I just can't pass up a colorful pack of paperclips. However, if I ever find myself in need, I know right where to find them.

I hope that I can resist the urge to buy any office supplies for a while since I have seen how much I have. I really hope I can do this.


  1. sis i am impressed with the pictures alone.

  2. I feel like you could figure out a way to decorate with these, something where they're still usable. I love the colors. I love the picture of the sharpies all laid out in a row. You could blow up that pic and do something cool with it in your office even. New project!

  3. Thanks Stan, I am working on my skills!!

  4. I think I need to do a personal intervention and buy some of these sharpies from you. It will help tend to my own need. I search and search and can never find one anywhere in my house.

  5. Sally! This post is heaven!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!! I share your obsession and completely encourage it. I say keep it up, I'm sure mine would be equally as excessive!
