Evers since I settled down, I developed this tendency to buy stuff in bulk. Mostly things that don’t turn bad, like noodles or toothpaste. It’s a satisfying feeling to stuff away your groceries and think to yourself “well, that pickles problem is taken care of for the next half year!”.
But, unlike Chuck, I have never managed to run out of business cards. It’s one of those things where double the quantity only costs a few bucks more, so I always order more than I need. And since I spend most of my working days in my office, don’t really get to hand out that many cards. In Chuck’s case, I would probably advise him to get even more than 500 pieces this time!
