I’ve come to find that, when in a craft or office supplies store, there ain’t nothing wrong with splurging a little bit. It feels good to treat yourself to the nice stuff when it comes to your planner, school belongings, or other desk supplies you may need… within a certain budget though, right? That in itself is a challenge! Dropping thirty or forty bucks on some neat journal inserts, page markers, or washi tape may seem easy. How about $175 dollars? How about nah.
Well, if you want the best of the best, gold-plated, diamond encrusted, genuine everything, then you have to cough up the big bucks. Even if that one item is beautiful and just what you ‘need’, there’s a voice in your head that says: DON’T DO IT. Below is a list of 6 office supplies that make you think exactly that.
1. El Casco 23k Gold-Plated Large Stapler– $395, Barneys

Well, that made me feel sort of broke, but also smart. I have my hard-earned money and there’s no way that I’ll be blowing it on a stapler or a keyboard anytime soon. However, these are some nice items to look at. If you want to spend your money on these go ahead. If you want to save $13,000 dollars and go on a cruise rather than buy paper, more power to you! As I’ve said before, whatever makes you happy.
