The Seattle Post Intelligencer, which produces newspapers, consumed 600 boxes of rubber-bands per week last year. The price of a box was $80, and the newspaper operates 52 weeks per year. The cost of processing an order was $55, and the cost of holding one box throughout a full year was 20% of the value of the material. Last year the Post ordered rubber-bands, on average, once every two weeks, each time ordering 1200 boxes.
