An Office Essential? A Good Stapler!

June 12, 2013

There was a horrible death in our office recently. The stapler died. It had been part of the office for more than 15 years and was a very productive member of our team. We had to rely on an even older stapler until we could find a replacement. Now if you think I’m exaggerating the important of a good stapler, maybe you should watch this clip from the movie Office Space (also embedded below).

If you’re a fan of this movie, you know the attachment Milton has to his red Swingline stapler. He claims he will set the building on fire if they take his stapler. You’ll have to watch the whole movie to see if he carries through on that threat.

Red Swingline StaplerIf you want to get a good old red Swingline stapler like Milton. you can get the Swingline 747 Rio Red Business Stapler at Amazon for $14.65. Note that when I list prices, I list the price I saw when I was writing the post. What you see could be higher or lower.

For those who want something that costs less and is a little bit smaller, you may want the Swingline Light Duty Stapler which sells for $3.98. I ordered one of each of these staplers so our office will be prepared.

Sometimes we all overlook the importance of these basic office tools. Once they stop working and you have to live without them, the true importance is evident!

    I love my red stapler, in my office, (i run a t shirt brand) all my employees always joke about the stapler from Office Space. Amazon and Staples both have a good prices on it, but I got mine from that was the cheapest place I could find it. Even people who come and visit my office comment on how cool it is to have that Swingline iconic stapler.

    Plus if you don’t need a stapler, it just looks awesome on your desk.
