Cheap stationery that is of such poor quality that it is not fit for purpose, causing much of it to be wasted. 1. Paper that has greasy spots, on which you cannot write. 2. Exercise books with furry, recycled paper, on which even biros blot. 3. Photocopying paper that sticks together. 4. Glue sticks that do not stick once the glue dries, and then the glue dries up to the size of a birthday cake candle. 5. Staples that are ill-sized, and jamb. 6. Pencils that splinter when sharpened. 7. Biros that only will not write consistently.
