I've already mentioned I order the supplies here at XYZ Corp. It's a friggin glam job with total perks, a car, and some sports tickets thrown in.
Okay, back to reality.
I order this stuff every week and the one thing we go through more than anything else is ... anyone ... PAPER! Honest, we go through 10 boxes of letter size a month. Considering most boxes hold 10 to 12 reams and there is normally 500 sheets per ream, that's a lot. Least we forget I work for a small cap publicly traded firm. I'll illustrate. If a corporation like Proctor and Gamble were, say, an African elephant, we would be the dirt under one of it's toenails. So, that much paper for a dirt corp is enormous.
In my job, I can go through two boxes a month. I am not exaggerating. My officemate co-worker can go through about one box. Our other counterpart in the Accounting Dept goes through half a box. So in Accounting alone, we use over 33%.
Recently, the company we normally order supplies from had a sale. We got 40 reams of paper for some ridiculously low price. And it's paper; hence, we need it. I figured "What the heck. It's a bargain." This paper actually has directions. WTH!? On the package, it states to use one particular side versus the other "for best results".
I print reports daily which go in a drawer which go in a filing cabinet at the end of the month which get put in a box after two years which go into a storage room for seven years which go through a shredder and burned.
I honestly don't give a damn which side yields the best results.
