Top 10: Things to Look for When Buying a Binder

It is time, once again, for a new TOP 10 list.  Sometimes in life we have to make hard decisions about big purchases.  Buying a TV, for example, is a big purchase that generally includes a lot of research trying to figure out what is the best TV for you.  Other purchases include little to no thinking, like buying office supplies.  Most people go into Staples looking for something in particular, like a binder.  Once in the store they go directly toward the binder aisle and pick out the first binder that fits their needs.

This week we’d like to challenge the traditional thought process about buying office supplies by giving you 10 things to genuinely think about when buying a binder.  A binder, like a computer, holds important papers, photos, etc. Why wouldn’t you take the same care when purchasing a binder like you do when purchasing a computer?

This week’s top 10 is comprised of input from all employees here at Samsill as well as some close friends that are current students.  The responses are recorded in order from most frequent response to least frequent.
