A staple diet
In a box of staples the size of a deck of cards, you’d usually expect enough of the metal items to see you through a few days of fixing pieces of paper together. However, we’ve once again ventured into the arena of packaging hiding a multitude of sins. In this case, the bumper pack probably won’t last you until the afternoon.
Maybe this company is on a mission to stop us polluting our paper recycling with metal pins. Or perhaps they are just sneakily trying to make more money by selling fewer items at the same price. I think the latter is more likely, don’t you?
