Here’s a confession…I search for reasons to visit the office supply store. Unfortunately, since I work at home, I don’t have a whole lot of office supply needs. I do, however, have a favorite product at these stores…the spiral binding service!
It’s less than $5 per book to have them bound with a clear plastic cover. Each summer, when I receive my new Stampin’ Up! catalog, I hurry in to get the binding done, so I can more easily browse through the catalog. I know, I’m a geek.
And did you know you can download the “recipes” for every sample in the Stampin’ Up! catalog online? It’s about 30 pages long, so I print it and take it with me to the store. They bind it right into the back of the book, so I don’t have to refer to a file on my computer.
It’s as handy as a pocket on a shirt, people! Speaking of pockets, you can also have them bind in a page protector, and then you can store smaller catalogs and lists in it. But I always forget that until after I pick up my completed catalog. Probably because I’m so excited to sit down and make my wish list.
I’ve had all sorts of things bound…a compilation of stories my grandma wrote, my favorite softcover cookbooks, schoolwork that I want to save for the kids, and scrapbooks The sky’s the limit. Well, the sky and I think 1-1/2 inches thick, that is. They do have some limits to their magic, after all.
Now, go look…I’ll bet you have some broken-spined softcover books that would love to be bound!
