Every month, the Strategist editors do their version of a haul blog, jibber-jabbering about their favorite purchases of the last four weeks. To get that same personality and taste insight (via receipts), we’re inviting interesting friends of the Strat to run down their own buys. For this installment of the Guest Strat Haul, Susan Orlean, a staff writer at The New Yorker and author of The Orchid Thief and the new The Library Book, tells us what she bought in September.
Every few months, I decide I’m going to start writing notes to people rather than emailing. This is partly because people absolutely love getting handwritten notes, and also because I love buying stationery. Plus I am a sucker for all the Pantone color swatch stuff (Pantone 16-0421 Sage, anyone?). The only problem is I love these notecards so much I kind of hate using them.
Yep, we need all three.
