I work from home as a writer, and because of this I go through A LOT of office supplies such as Pens, paper, note books and printer ink. Recently, I have discovered that if you're able to buy things in bulk, you have the chance of getting a much better deal than you would if you simply bought things every time you wanted to get a specific item new. I have looked on the internet, on sites like eBay and Amazon, and buying in bulk certainly does seem to be the way forward. You do have to make sure that you have somewhere that you can store things, though, or there is obviously the chance that they're just going to get in your way when you don't want them to. Have you had any experience buying things in bulk? Would you do it again? My latest success story was a pack of 20 biro pens for £1, which I thought was quite good - and they are a good brand so I know they will last me for a good while!
