Office Supplies Quiz

 #addictedtoofficesupplies #officeproductsquiz #chooseyourfavoriteofficesupply

When I started working in an office supply store nearly seven years ago, I had no idea how serious people were about their office supplie. Ah, yes. We care about our folders, pens, and sticky notes, because. . . well, because they help us do our jobs better. But I suspect another underlying reason we take them so seriously.

We love them.

Of course, you're not surprised. If you didn't have an affinity for office products, you wouldn't be reading this post. Unless you enjoy making fun of those of us who are office product junkies.

Yes, I admit it. I'm addicted, too.

Just for fun, I'd like to run a quiz. What do you think is the #1 item people who come into my store say they're addicted to? To help you out, I'll give you a list of the top seven.

1. Colored paper clips
2. Sticky notes
3. Pens
4. Markers and highlighters
5. Dry correction tape
6. Colored page flags
7. Notebooks

Which one would you give the #1 slot to? Which is YOUR personal favorite?

I'll return in a few days to give the answer!


  1. Pens are my #1! Followed closely by notebooks. It might even be a tie between them.

  2. I would guess pens are #1, but my favorite is colored paper and binder clips.

  3. I go through the colored paper clips very quickly, But I think most people would say #4 Markers and highliters.

  4. Hi Jeanette! I am voting for sticky notes. What did we do without them???
    I, personally, love a good pen.

    Can't wait to hear what the answer is!

  5. Good guesses, everyone! I will wait a few days to post the answer. Thanks for commenting,

  6. My personal favorite, actually addiction, are the pens. VF point, all colors, oooh- I love them!

  7. I would guess sticky notes are the #1 item people are addicted to. My #1 favorite office supply is a tie between a good, non-leaky pen (medium point, blue) and an ornate clipboard.

    I'm an office supply junkie too!

  8. Pens on all counts! I love the pretty new Bic and Papermate pens in pink and purple. I have special ones just for book signings. :)


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
