As I have started uni again last month…I realised I don’t actually have a stapler…or at least I can’t find my old one.. 😦 (A tiny stapler I got for free from some law expo my sister went to)..
So I went stapler shopping!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can I mention how much I love the brand Kikki K?I have diaries, cards, pens and numerous other craft items that I have bought from this wonderful stationary shop. Would I love a Kikki. K stapler? Yes, probably… but the price was a hugggggggggeee turn off for me… 😦 $24.95 for a stapler… >.<” Maybe it’s because I haven’t been working as much I used to..but this is way more than I would pay for a stapler… especially since I only use it for university at the moment..! But it does look great…sturdy..
After being dismayed at the price of a Kikki. K stapler…I went to my second option…KMART! Well known for its cheap. yet still functioning goods. I found this stapler as shown below..for a measly……..TWO BUCKS!! I was like full, take my money! So cheap…On the outside it looks great…!
But when I used it I can indistinctly tell its very light and cheap…I don’t know how long it will last…but when tested…it still WORKED. It does the job and it cost 10 times less than what I would of paid for the kikki. K one.
What would you have decided?
Would you choose quality over quantity in this situation?? Or perhaps it depends what it is…
For me if it’s safety or health related issues, I tend to splurge a bit more…I like original brand names for my medications xD!! I also fork out money for health insurance, car insurance, and service my car with certified Toyota mechanics only o.O.
But yeah, for things like stationary, the cheaper the better usually! I got through a high amount of stationary and I am often losing pens and things…so it makes sense not to spend too much on then…I skimp out on food products too…Always looking for the cheap bargains in the supermarkets and waiting (usually) for things to go on sale….
I don’t know if I made the right choice, getting the cheaper stapler, but so far its doing its job…
