Back to School Shopping: The Stapleless Stapler

staplerFall is here and I have headed back to school. While I'm there, every research paper I hand in represents a little waste. The pages I hand in (double spaced no less!) are only the beginning. While I can edit on my laptop, nothing will ever replace my hard-copy draft edits, where I always seem to catch some glaring typos I missed on my computer. Each of these hard copy drafts (and there's always a few) is a few more pages of paper.

There might not be anything I can do about that. But with a staple-less stapler, I can at least avoid wasting metal to hold my sheets together. The device cuts and folds the sheets of paper to hold them together, and while I've never used one, this heavy duty metal model seems sturdy enough to handle my steady output of drafts and papers. Anyway, if it's good enough for tree-hugger, it's good enough for me.
