This is my worst kind of buying - Buying Because it is a Bargain.
Over the last few months the little stationery shop in Simon's Town has been selling off its old stock at ridiculous prices. I mean, they were practically giving the stuff away! R1 (that is roughly 70 US cents) for a box with eighty A5 plastic sleeves. What a bargain!
Do I need eighty A5 sleeves? Not really, but they could come in pretty handy, I guess. I also got 104 photo corners for R1. What a bargain! I have no idea what I will do with them; my photo prints are already filed in photo albums; these days I use a digital camera and store everything digitally anyway. Parker and Sheaffer rollerball refills at R1 each. What a bargain! I do not have Parker or Sheaffer pens, but who cares. I have already decided the inners themselves make pretty handy little pens for one's handbag. Cash register paper rolls at R1 each. What a bargain! I have no cash register ( nor do I have any cash, actually), but I just love paper in all its forms. I suppose I could do something creative with them. A plastic PUSH sign for R1. What a bargain! Now this one I actually bought with a purpose. I am going to stick it on a door that you have to pull. Hehehehehe.
