    ...Staples!

    So, you get them in the box where you get like, at a minimum 2000 staples... I use a stapler fairly frequently, and I'm literally forever buying boxes of staples... But I can't seem to remember if I've actually ever used an entire box before buying another one, or even more than one or two lines of staples before buying another one...

    I'm pretty sure I maybe use about 10% of each box before buying another... why do I have such a problem with staples...!!!??

      Grr, you're the person that scrounges!! It's like when my housemate wants to use my kitchen foil. I don't mind the odd piece, but when they use the majority of the roll constantly, the money adds up :lol:

      I have worked in offices for the last 5 years, so I have used quite a few boxes.

      Never used a stapler at home though.
