Our each is a half-pound bag of rubber bands in assorted sizes and equally assorted colors, and how many is that, you ask? Darned if we know. Looks like about a third of a gazillion, but that's just an estimate. You won't run out anytime soon.
From Helix®, this 18" long aluminum U.S. Standard triangular architects' ruler/scale has color-coded facings and is divided into 3. 1-1/2, 1, 3/4, 3/8, 3/16, 3/32, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8 inch per foot. Yes, you can use it even if you're not an architect.
Filament tape for closing boxes and envelopes that you want to stay closed. It has fiberglass strands embedded lengthwise in it which makes it very hard to tear by accident. You get 10 yds of the stuff, 3/4" wide, in a clear plastic desk type dispenser.
You should never snip a real stork but if you do embroidery, cutwork or other fancy seamstering, you’ll recognize these small, 3-1/2” long, stork-shaped scissors as the specialty cutters you need for that sort of work. Their tiny, 3/4” long super-sharp points will snip all the way to the tip.
Just like buying salami, except you can't take notes with lunch meat, and these pens cost less than sausage. We bought them in bulk, and we're selling them in bulk. Our PKG will get you (2) lbs of assorted, but very nice, ballpoint pens with a gallimaufry of logos and names. For future reference, pens weigh in at approx (50) per pound, give or take.
These miniature versions of the traditional floor fan say "Retro Mini Fan" on them, and the retro part is that the blades and cages are all metal. The handy part is that they're just 5-3/8" dia and the plug is a USB, ready to cool you off right from your (actual) desktop. Tilts 180° up and down and comes with a 4-foot cord. Super quiet, too. We'll pick one in red, blue or black.
Keep those sticky notes together and unpeeled with this bitsy spiral-bound notebook filled with (3) stacks of approx (25) 3” x 2” sticky notes plus approx (125) 2” x 5/8” skinny sticky slips, all in neon green, pink, yellow, orange and blue.
Tiny but perfectly accurate, and the only pocket postal scale most folks will ever need. Stick your envelope in its alligator jaws, hold or hang it up and read the weight in grams (0 to 100) or ounces (up to 4) in increasing increments. Handy in the US, and very handy for travel to metric lands. Pretty much flat and approx 3" long in its vinyl pouch, it takes up virtually no room, costs next to nothing, and has no batteries. Nice little teaching tool for kiddies, too.
The low-profile, approx. 5" wide steel clip stands just 5/16" above the 1/8" thick natural-tan pressboard of this trim clipboard. Measures approx. 12" x 9". Made to slip conveniently into a briefcase, but also has a hole on the backside of the clip for easy hanging.
