Happy Paper Clips

I see more paper clips in one day at work than I used to see in a whole year of being a stay-at-home mommy.   On those rare occasions we ventured into an Office Max in years past, I didn't understand why anyone would want to pay extra money for fancy-schmancy paper clips.  They're just paper clips.  They clip paper.  Big whoop.

But now ...  I've changed my mind.  Those zebra-striped and tiger-striped and candy-cane-striped paper clips bring a smile to my face!  I don't know why they're so cheery, but when I come across one, it sure does brighten my day!


  1. I can relate to that working an office job, now... even as a guy, when I walk by someone's desk who has something a bit more festive and less boring (or the same as everybody else), it's nice to see. And it makes me just a bit happier.

  2. Yep. I have colored paper clips. And multi-colored post-it notes. :)

  3. I kept a beta fish at my desk when I worked in an office. That little life-in-a-jar was just enough to keep my cube cheery.
