Day 2596 – Splurging On Post It Notes And Actually Printing Your Photos

I absolutely adore office supplies. Back to school is a very dangerous time for me. All of those supplies on sale and some things for a penny! Ah! I have to avoid the stores sometimes.

Yesterday, I realized I only had one color in my 3×3 post it note supply. My friends, this is no good. I’ve come to realize that it does make a difference in the type and color of your post it notes. I’ve gotten generic and budget friendly post it notes (and other office supplies too) and they just fail me. They tend to be flimsy and don’t stick.

I have no shame in admitting I spent a good 10 minutes looking at post it notes. I contemplated deep questions like – “will these colors make me happy?” “Will I work harder with these colors?”

I ended up with these 5 beautiful colors. 🙂

Another thing I did recently, was actually print a photo from our trip. Yes, that’s right, I printed a photo less than a month after it was taken! I love being able to look up from my desk and see it. Dudes, this sucker is a foot by 4 feet!

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.

  1. I’m a fan of post it notes too. What on earth did we do before they were invented! Printing photos seems like a by-gone activity but one that I miss. My kids will never know the feeling of picking up a pack of newly developed photos from the store and opening it, hoping that a few turned out great!

    • I have no idea! I am even more amazed at all of the fun new post it note things, such as pads in shapes, HUGE post it notes and lined post it notes. (lol, it wasn’t a lie that I spent 10 minutes looking at all of the types!) Ahhhh, I miss that feeling of picking up a roll of film too. There doesn’t seem to be anything like it today. 😦
