I have a problem. A washi problem. It started out innocently enough. I was in Staples getting some supplies for my arc notebook and some Staedtler pens, and I saw the tapes. I’ve heard about them of course. But these were on clearance so I picked up 4 of them.
I thought a solid would be nice, a few simple patterns I could still write on, and then a fancy one for edging papers. I put them in my little batman bowl with my extra arc disks and used them a couple of times. But then things got out of hand. In the last week or so this happened…
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. In my defense a lot of this was on clearance at Staples. The dispenser I found at Jo-Ann’s and ended up paying only $8 for it instead of $25 (I had a really good coupon) – it rotates AND has little tape cutting edges. And Office Depot now has this massive display with all kinds of cute tapes like the bees or the robots or the bicycles.
So far I think my favorite tape is the flame tape. It’s perfect for those super important tasks and easy to write on with Sharpie fine point markers. So yes, I have a washi problem. But on the bright side the dispenser is now full and I refuse to buy anymore. And there will be no more dispensers. I think. Maybe.
But you know what? All these little brightly colored to-do reminders and fancy planner pages seem to be helping. I’ve gotten more done this week than I have in ages. Does washi madness = genius? Maybe so!
