We needed a hole puncher, more for the kids homework, than for my wife and I. I like the idea that my sons have to go online to do a lot of the homework now, but it does have a few snags built into this. Hole punching, for computer paper that should go into their homework binders, is a necessity.
The old hole puncher we had, was old and not punching the way it should, so we retired it to the basement. Next Spring, we will hold our annual "garage sale". Someone will end up buying a hole puncher, then wonder why they bought a used one.
Staples had a good, three hole puncher on sale. It has a twenty sheet capacity, per punch load. I cautioned everyone to only use it at half of this, so the tool would not wear out too soon.
Honestly, the puncher is needed. Most families have them now. I can't imagine how anyone the prints out from a printer, could do without one.
The Staple brand Hole Puncher, works. Clean cuts, and lines up the paper very well. I am hoping this one lasts at least 3 years, until my sons can afford to buy the next one we have to get.
