It Should Come As A Shock To No One That I Have A Fucking Mental Problem.

Standard

Okay, so I *might* have a well documented school-supply hoarding situation.  Bottom line: if it’s on deep discount, I’ll buy it, and at any given moment, I am completely capable of opening my own OfficeMax.  My coworker used to just find my stash impressive, but now when I text her my victories, she just finds it concerning.

Me: Target clearance!  I just scored 77 spiral notebooks for $8!!!

Michelle: Okay, that’s awesome, but how many can you possibly use?

Me: I use them!

Michelle: You used maybe 20 last year.

Me: See!  I’m covered for almost 4 years!

Michelle: And the 200 you already have in the closet?

Me: Shhhhhh….let me have this.

  1. Office supplies are like cocaine…or what I imagine taking cocaine to be like. The rush of the sale, the smoothness of the paper, the colors of the pens… Damn, now I need to go to Staples and wander around.

    • My kids favorite day of summer is when they get to go “shopping” at the kitchen table we haven’t been able to sit at for two months, because it’s covered in my sale items.

    I am not attempting to enable your addiction BUT – with so many parents finding it challenging to afford supplies for their children, you have them available to give to those children so they are well supplied for their classes. Its kind of admirable (while slightly concerning).
