Back to School With OfficeMax (Giveaway)

We head back to school next week, and that phrase always gives me a brief moment of panic as I think about everything the wee ones need by that first day. It seems like the list gets longer and longer every year, but fortunately OfficeMax not only has the products we need but 25 cent, 10 cent, and 1 cent deals on many of them.

When a box of Angry Birds school supplies arrived at my house, there was a little bit of oohing and ahhing. Angry Birds toys were the big hit of our Christmas presents, and the love of them hasn’t ceased. When the wee ones saw the backpack, pencil case, pencil toppers, and notebook, there was an immediate discussion of who was going to be lucky enough to get what items.

And really, that excitement – about school supplies, no less – is what I love to see as we enter the school year. If they can be excited about this, it helps set the tone for the whole year. Even better, there are other school supplies with the Angry Birds logo, from messenger bags to folders to book covers. And if your child prefers Spiderman or Batman or zebras or glitter, OfficeMax has you covered there, too.

It isn’t just school supplies for the young kids, either. OfficeMax offers everything you need for middle school and high school students, too. And those kids heading off to college? OfficeMax has them covered, too, with everything from computers and printers to flash drives and more.

Back to school shopping is always easier for me when I can make it a one stop shop. I don’t have the time or energy to drive from store to store searching out what I need. That’s why I love how OfficeMax provides everything on our lists. And the few things that may not be in store? Fortunately there’s the online OfficeMax where I can order anything else that I may have missed – or forgotten.

With all the different patterns and options, each of the wee ones can personalize their supplies to fit their personalities and help to ensure that they don’t get confused with other students in their classes. It’s just another way to help make school a little bit more fun so they enjoy their time there. And that backpack? Little Miss was thrilled that she got to have that one. Mister Man was happy with the pencil case and pencil toppers to help keep him organized. And me? I’m keeping that notebook for myself. After all, moms need school supplies, too, right?

    YES! My son love the black bomber bird. I’d have to say my husband and I are also addicted. My 1/5 year old daughter knows who they are, and tries to play. It comes in handy while waiting at the doctors office.

  2. Anne Lehnick says

    We are ALL Angry Birds fans. I’m trying to find the Angry Birds birthday party items so we can have a joint party for my son and daughter.

    p.s…… I TWEETED :-)

    My boyfriend (pretty much a big kid) is a huge fan. I’m not a huge fan of hearing the game sounds constantly lol

  4. Wendy M says

    Okay, my husband is the biggest Angry Birds fanatic. He has 3 stars on every level, and when new levels come out he can be found on his iPhone playing quite frequently. My 7 year-old also loves to play, and gets upset if I don’t install the updates on my iPhone quick enough for him. :-)

    I think everyone in this house loves angry birds! Even our sixteen-month-old! My four year old does get a kick out of watching birds explode… :)
