binder hell

Seriously people, buying school supplies is highway robbery these days.


$5.99 each?! For some off-brand plastic and metal? That seems a bit high, don’t you think?

Oh, it gets worse.


$7.49 just to be able to flip it over?? (A handy option, I’ll admit, but am I willing to pay more for it? I don’t think so.)

Believe it or not, it gets EVEN worse.


$9.29!!! For ONE? You’ve got to be kidding me.

All I wanted was the Avery brand, white, one-inch binders I’ve been buying for the last three semesters. I needed five. Target was fresh out, which brought me to Office Max, or ‘the most expensive place to buy office supplies you can’t find anywhere else and are thus forced into paying through the nose.’

After much price-comparing in my head, and maybe a little out-loud public math using my fingers, I came to the conclusion that this would be my best bet:


Twelve for $24.99. Just more than $2 each–my kinda price for BINDERS, for pete’s sake. And it’s not like I won’t need five or six more next semester…
