I am very picky about yogurt; there are only a few brands I like, and I’m willing to travel further to get them. I’m also picky about bread, but not so much so that I won’t compromise if I have to. (Especially if the store also carries my favorite yogurt.)
I’m reasonably picky about paper, but in my job, it’s neither surprising nor particularly difficult for me to be. Given how convenient it is to be able to do most of your shopping in one place, I wonder how others feel. When you need a new notebook, are you willing to go out of your way for the right one, whether that means going to a far-flung retailer or ordering online and waiting for the package to arrive? When do you wait for what’s perfect, and when do you accept what’s available?
