A SHOCKED mum revealed posh shop Tiffany & Co. sells GOLD paperclips for £1,133 – whereas you can get a pack of 200 from W.H Smiths for £2.49.
To be fair to Tiffany's their one is solid gold and larger, so it can act as a bookmark.
But people writing on Laura Mazza's Instagram page, The Mum on the Run, were still astounded.
Laura said: "Ladies, gentlemen, business owners!
"People of the world. If you are ever concerned about your worth, know that Tiffany sells paper clips for $1500 AND people buy them.
"You, your worth, your business, your time is worth much more than a paper clip. Remember that."
Tiffany boasted on it's page the the 18k paperclip was an "everyday object".
At 2.5 inches long it was described as a "whimsical bookmark."
But if you can't stretch to that don't worry – as it comes in silver for a (much cheaper) £125.
They are available online, although you might be worried about them going missing in the post, and at Tiffany's flagship New York store – made famous in Truman Capote's novel Breakfast at Tiffany's and the subsequent film starring Audrey Hepburn.
Meanwhile, W.H Smith said: "These nickel paperclips will keep your documents bound and secure. Each pack contains 200 silver coloured paperclips that are ideal for use with loose leaf sheets."
They are available in every store and form part of a special deal – three for two stationery essentials.
Laura's followers joked about the bonkers paperclip.
"I’ll take two please," teased one woman.
"Surely a must have," said another.
Another added: "I'm a mum budget shopping so my husband and kids can have everything that they want so I'm not spending my credit card money and cash in my hand on a damn paper clip."
I'm a mum budget shopping so my husband and kids can have everything that they want so I'm not spending my credit card money and cash in my hand on a damn paper clip.
She added: "This paper clip needs to be one damn magical thing for that amount of money!"
Another added: " I love paperclips! I'm aware this is weird but my hubbie buys me weird and wonderful paperclips all the time.
"I would totally want this if I was a gazillionaire but sadly I'm poor."
Another added: "To the people saying ‘actually it’s not a paper clip, it’s a bookmark’, I mean yes, but it’s still not normal to spend $1500 on a bookmark! I find an old train ticket normally does the job."
And another woman said: "They better hold my life together for that price".
Laura previously claimed that her son was the reincarnation of a child she sadly miscarried – read her shocking account.
