Back to School with OfficeMax: A Giveaway!

I am a school supply addict so OfficeMax is a little bit of Heaven on Earth.  I wanted to share with you some awesome deals they have and also give you a chance to win a huge prize!

Teacher Appreciate Sales are Happening! 
To help teachers stock up and save on much-needed supplies, OfficeMax is hosting its special, three-day Teacher Appreciation Days events where teachers receive 25% off their purchase of hundreds of essential classroom supplies, exclusive coupons and other great values, increased purchase limits just for teachers and a free reusable tote. To participate, teachers can join OfficeMax’s MaxPerks Rewards for Teachers program at no charge either in-store or online at officemaxperks.com. You can www.officemax.com/celebrateteachers for details on Teacher Appreciation Days events in your where you live.

You can save on school supplies!

I get so excited for big deals on school supplies and OfficeMax is offering 25-cent, 50-cent and $1 value deals on a variety of supplies, including markers, notebooks, glue, scissors and more. Check out OfficeMax’s back-to-school web page at http://www.officemax.com/backtoschool to shop or search by zip code for in-store and online promotions.

Also did you know that teachers also receive special discounts at the OfficeMax Print Center? You can select from one of two bundles including:
o   Teacher Value Bundle includes 100 B&W copies, 1 poster (18” x 24”), 3 feet of lamination and 50 business/event cards for $19.99 ($60 value)
o   Teacher Premium Bundle includes 50 color copies, 2 posters (18” x 24”), 3 feet of lamination, 50 business/event cards and a teacher planner for $29.99 ($100 value)
I am all over the Teacher Premium Bundle! I'll show you what I get printed soon!

OfficeMax Gives Back! This makes my heart happy!
OfficeMax is hosting its annual A Day Made Better In-Store School Supply Drive where community members can donate much-needed supplies for local teachers. OfficeMax associates will donate the collected supplies to local schools on October 1 during the annual A Day Made Better events in which OfficeMax associates surprise 1,000 teachers in their classrooms with a total of $1 million worth of OfficeMax-donated school supplies. Learn more about A Day Made Better at www.adaymadebetter.com.

Now onto the goodies:

I was given the following goodies to review and the best part is, you get a chance to win them too!

                                                            This is what was included:
                                                              OfficeMax Binder Clips 
                                                             $50 OfficeMax Gift Card

                                                           OfficeMax Color Paper Clips 

                                                          TUL Electric Pencil Sharpener 
                                                         TUL Liquid Pocket Highlighters 

Just Basics 36 Pack of #2 Pencils

Papermate 12 Pack of Purple Pens  

OfficeMax Brite Self Stick NotePads

OfficeMax 12 Pack Blue Grip Gel Pins
OfficeMax 8" Stainless Steel Bent Scissors

I'm always in love with a good binder clip for my planner, to keep papers to grade together and separating papers in my data binders.  And the paperclips are extra fun, because they are colored! Paperclips are also great for a nonstandard unit of measure. We go through some paper clips in grade one.

Then there are pencils. Pencils that actually sharpen to a point and not just on one side. And I found a super cute pencil boy to sharpen my pencils.  And he didn't break the pencil sharpener because it actually let him know when it was finished. Love IT!!
Then there are the pens. One set was gel and the other a pretty purple pen, and I loved using both and I'm very pen picky! 


They also sent sticky notes, which I use like they are going out of style. Plus sticky notes make first graders giddy! I give them their own sticky notes for Reader's Workshop time so they can mark pages, write important facts or questions they have while reading.  They feel very important having their own teacher tools! 
Speaking of teacher tools have you tried TUL products? Not only do they make some of my favorite pens ever, their highlighters are amazing and chisel tip!  And these come in so many colors. It is great for documenting and organizing information.  
And finally they sent scissors! Scissors that are sharp and cut nicely and aren't covered in sticky from cutting velcro. Yippee. The OfficeMax scissors rock! 
So I'd love for you to win these amazing teacher gifts too. Maybe we can go shopping if you win! Love the 50 dollar gift card! 
If you want to win, just enter below. I'll be choosing a winner on Monday, August 12th.
