Introduction: A Clever Stapler Trick

About: Garvey's Office Products is the largest family-owned office supply dealer in Illinois. We are the nice guys in office supplies!

We’ve all been there — the stapler runs out, and there’s no staples in the supply cabinet! To avoid further mishaps, try this nice guys :) trick. You’ll never be caught in a jam again.

Step 1: Grab Supplies

For this stapler trick, you'll need just three items:

  • Your stapler
  • Staples
  • A bright marker (red works best, but you could possibly do other colors)

Step 2: Color Your Staples

Taking your marker, color your staples. You should aim for about 20 staples for this trick to work.

Step 3: Load Stapler

Load your staplers with the red end of the staples towards the end. Now when your stapler starts punching red, you know you'll need to replenish your staple supply!

    Nice!
    This is such a useful trick!
    Some staplers have a hole at the side of the compartment and you can see the red color through that too!

    Oh my gosh! This is such a great idea! I always swear when I get to the last staple! And thank you for not calling it a "hack". I hate that word where it doesn't belong! :)
