Favorite Things Linky Party: Office Supplies

Lots of fun linky parties going on!  Today I am linking up with the Teaching Trio for their monthly Favorite Things Linky.
#1: Binder Clips
Who doesn't love a good binder clip?  They've been around forever and a day, but the clever ideas for their use seem endless!  As a matter of fact, I have an entire Pinterest Board dedicated to these little beauties.  I recently used the clip in the picture above as a freebie attached to my business card that some fellow bloggers will be giving away at TCEA in Austin this week! I love that it has a space I can easily label with a sharpie or even a dry erase marker! I found these at Staples.


#2: The Align Stapler by Quirky
When I first spotted this on Pinterest I knew I had to have one. Imagine my surprise when I found it at Walmart of all places!  Turns out they had an entire display of Quirky products.  Can you guess what I found in my stocking for Christmas? Yep, this stapler along with several other Quirky products!  I admit it's a little tricky to use, and I've only needed it a few times so far, but the potential is fabulous. So for right now it's on my favorite list!

#3: Ticonderoga Pencils
I started to go with a Sharpie for the #3 spot, but the reality is I just LOVE a good sharpened Ticonderoga.  I can't live without them.  I would write everything in pencil all the time if I could.  And not one of those newfangled mechanical things, just a plain old SHARP Ticonderoga.

So are you a pencil person or a pen person?  

Be sure to stop by the Teaching Trio to see who else linked up with their favorite things!

  1. A whole pinterest board dedicated to binder clips? This I must see! I LOVE office supplies and tend to hoard them :) My mom loves retelling the the story of how exstatic I was when I received scotch tape for Christmas :)

    1. Office Supply Hoarder would be an appropriate title for me too! Your mom probably loved that you were so easy to shop for!

  4. I agree - no mechanical pencils for me either. Give me a good old-fashioned wood pencil any day!

    1. Exactly! Both my husband and son prefer mechanical. I don't know what's wrong with them!

  5. So I guess all the cheap pencils I've purchased are just not up to par. I will have to buy a box of Ticonderogas to compare.

  7. I agree, Ticonderoga are the best! The funny thing is that they are made by Dixon who also make the crappiest pencils on Earth! lol

    1. I guess they have an elite line and lousy line. I wonder why though?

  8. I like the stapler idea. I am more of a regular pencil person too instead of the mechanical pencils. I think the mechanical pencils brake too easily and run out of lead way too quickly. My wife and I use binder clips for a lot of different things around the house therefore, we have a bunch of them lying around.
