the groceries

Lists have a certain rhythm to them. After reviewing the receipt for groceries I purchased over the weekend, I felt inspired. Think the Choose Life speech at the end of Trainspotting or even the part when Renton locks himself in a room preparing to relinquish junk.

Try it next time you get a long receipt from the grocery store.


From pens to folders, ink cartridges to notebooks, office supplies are an essential part to running a business efficiently. A company runs at its best when enough toner and copy paper is available. File cabinets, fax machines and computers are also necessary supplies for today’s businesses. Companies save money and increase profits when they turn to office supply vendors with the lowest prices and quality products.
