Just like Mom wouldn’t let you run off to school without ensuring that you were wearing a sweater
(especially when she was cold) and carrying your books, homework, lunch, and money for milk, I
don’t want you to march forth with your word processing efforts without reading at least ten more
pieces of loving, Word-friendly advice. This chapter is where you can find that advice.
Keep Printer Paper, Toner, and Supplies Handy
The electronic office is a myth. Along with your word processor, you need some real-world office
supplies. Keep them stocked. Keep them handy.
When you buy paper, buy a box.
When you buy a toner cartridge or printer ribbon, buy a second.
Keep a good stock of pens, paper, staples, paper clips, and all other office supplies handy.
