Bittersweet office supplies

My friend Carina is moving to Sweden. She's been sorting her belongings, trying to determine what is essential and what she can get rid of. I helped her for a few hours (okay, more like 7 hours--she has LOTS of belongings) yesterday. Lucky for me, she is as big a fan of office supplies as I am. I walked away with:
  • a business card organizer
  • 400 index cards and a box in which to store them
  • binder clips
  • document organizers
  • a 3-ring binder
  • several small notebooks
  • The Gregg Reference Manual
  • a microcassette recorder and tapes
  • a bunch of cute file folders
  • a paper cutter
I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. And, to be honest, I also felt a bit like a vulture . . . but she couldn't take everything with her, and at least she knows her things will have a good home. So thanks, Carina--and safe travels! I'll miss you. :(
