I have been on this earth for 35 years, and I just learned this today. See the little metal plate that looks like it has a smiley face on it:
Well, there's a reason it has that smiley face. You can actually turn that plate around and have it face the other way:
Which, in turn, will make your staples larger/wider or smaller/narrow, depending on which way the plate was already facing.
You can thank my daughter for your newfound stapler enlightment. She figured it out in a fit of boredom and curiosity one time and decided to share this secret with me today. (there's a reason she's called "The Brilliant Brunette!")
In looking for photos to accompany this post, I discovered that we're not the only ones onto this secret. But I bet YOU heard it HERE first! :)
I have a new contest going on at So a Blonde Walks Into a Review. My celebrity-lovin' self had a blast with this one. Head on over and enter!
And don't be surprised if you get a surprise when you visit here soon. I'm just sayin'. :)
