REMINDER: Office Max: 10 Reams of Paper for $.01 Sale


I think I might jump on this Office Max Paper Sale this week.  I would like to have a paper stockpile and a box should last me a LONG time.

And since I don’t like carrying around a giant box of paper the fact that I can do it online is even better.

Office Max has a program called Max Perk Rewards.  When you buy certain products they give you store credit you can use to purchase other items for FREE.

This week they have a great deal on a 10 ream case of Office Max copy paper.  It’s on sale for $42.99 and you get $42.98 back in Office Max Rewards.  (I will be using my rewards to pick up free printer ink at some point!)

The other great thing is that you can order these items on OfficeMax.com and shipping is free when you spend $50.  Personally I think it’s worth spending an extra $8 so I do not have to try to carry a big box of paper from my car to my house. 

They have several other items that have full Max Perks Rewards as well or you could grab some spare scissors or coupon organizing tools. 

So check out OfficeMax on-line, sign up for Max Perk Rewards and start saving big!

Protect Your Coupon Binder

One of the greatest nightmares a couponer has is losing their coupons.  Whether you leave your binder at the grocery store or leaving you recipe box in the food court at the mall it’s alot of work and cutting gone down the drain.

Unless… are you ready for my brilliant idea… you write your name and phone number in it.

Recently one of the managers at our local Harris Teeter let us know that he has three binders just sitting in their office, left there by shoppers.  If only they had a number in them- they could be back safely in the arms of their owners.

So take a minute and slip something in your binder so that you can be contacted if something happens to it!

Friday is Mega Swag Bucks Day

If you don’t use Swagbucks, you need to check it out!  Especially on Fridays where you can get as many as 100 points for a search!

Swagbucks is a search engine, powered by Google, that gives you points for searching the internet. Just use it like you would Google or Bing, but you earn points for seaches. After you have banked enough points, you can trade them in for free items! Plus, they often offer special Swag Codes for additional points as well, so it’s not hard to rack up enough points to redeem often!

Check out my post here on how to maximize your Swagbucks!

With Swagbucks you can earn gift cards (my personal favorite) and other rewards just by searching the internet. IPods, LCD televisions, and IPhones are some of the more fun items in the Swag Store.  It’s only 450 swag points to get a $5 Amazon gift card- you can be saving those for the holidays!

Plus, if you use this link here you earn Swag Bucks just for signing up!

A Chick’s Opinion: Wii Play Motion

I got a nice surprise in the mail last week- a new Wii game to try out!   The Wii Play Motion game comes with a black Wii remote so now I had two remotes!  Time to get a friend to come help me test out the games.  So I invited a more Wii proficient friend to try out all 12 games featured on this one disk!

The twelves games are:

1- Cone Zone – you use your balance to build a tall ice cream cone.  I only played this one once. 

2- Veggie Garden- this game is completely addicting.  Remember whack-a-mole from when you were a kid?  This is a chance to relive your childhood.  I LOVED it.

3- Skip Skimmer – This one is tied for my favorite game- you skip stones across a lake. But once you get 50 points the stones change- some of them make different noises and do interesting things.  SOOO much fun!  

4- Pose Mii Plus- only played this one once as well.  It’s sort of like that TV show “Hole In The Wall.”

5- Trigger Twist- this one is tied for my favorite.  You get to save the little Mii characters from ninjas, spaceships and dinosaurs.  I think we played this one the most! 

6- Jump Park- this one confused me, but people who are more into gaming will enjoy it.  My friend did much better than I did!  It involved the Mii jumping towards targets and other items.

7- Teeter Targets- this one had the feeling of old school video games.  Lots of fun- you hold the Wii remote sideways to control a wooden teeter totter to bounce a wooden ball around the screen. 

8- Spooky Search- people on-line loved this game and it drove us crazy.  It’s basically like “Ghostbusters”- you are trying to catch the ghost and put him in a box.  I think at this point we were anxious to get back to rock skipping so we just played it once and moved on.

9- Wind Runner- LOVED this one too.  You hold your Wii remote like it’s an umbrella handle and then let the wind blow you through a course.   Had sort of a Mario Kart feel.

10- Treasure Twirl-  This one reminded me so much of Mario swimming under water except with amazing graphics. You lower your Mii as a deep-sea diver by continuously twirling the remote (as if you’re unspooling a line) and try to pull up a treasure chest. You can swing your Mii left and right as you’re descending to pick up oxygen and avoid stringing jellyfish.

11- Flutter Fly- this game drove me crazy.  You hold the remote straight up like a fan, and fan some balloons through an obstacle course. I kept popping the balloon but again, someone with more Wii skill would probably do great.  Plus as I practice I know I will get better!  

12- Star Shuttle-  I have to be honest- we couldn’t figure it out.  After a few attempts we went back to the other games we enjoyed. You control a spaceship to dock with a space station- we kept going out of orbit and blowing up.

This game is alot of fun and has something for everyone.  Four of the games can be played by four players and all of them had atleast a 2 player mode.  I can easily picture each person in a family having their favorite game that they excel at.  The skill levels varied alot so I think a variety of ages would enjoy and excel at different parts.

Once my schedule settles down I will be taking it to friends’ houses so we can try the four player level!  I can’t wait!

If you want to check out all the details and see what other people think click here to check out the game!
