Super Savings Round-Up: Office Max

Did you receive the Office Max brown paper bag in your Sunday newspaper? Printed on the bag is a promotion that states "20% off anything you can fit in this bag at Office Max." I needed some fall school materials for my kids, and since I had $30 of Office Max Max Perks Rewards to spend, I decided this paper bag promotion was my best chance for maximizing my savings! I was pretty pleased with what I got:

(2) Reams of copy paper @ $4.59
(3) Boxes of transparent photo corners clearanced to $.80 (0riginally $2.99)
(3) Boxes of crayons on sale @ $.01! (regularly $.99)
(1) Package of hand sanitizer and hand lotion clearanced to $2.50 (originally $10.39)
(1) Dora Pre-K school workbook @ $5.49
(1) Sesame Street Pre-K school workbook @ $5.49
(1) Clifford Phonics computer software on sale for $6.99 (regularly $9.99)
(1) Pink removable pink wall stripe clearanced to $2.20 (originally $5.50)
(4) Pocket folders on sale for $.25
(1) Package of Crayola Pip Squeak washable markers @ $4.59
(1) Package of decorative paper clips clearanced to $1.20 (originally $1.99)
(1) Embossed journal clearanced to $4.50 (originally $9.29)

I got all of this in my paper bag, so it was an additional 20% off the lowest price!

Total retail value before sales and promotions (including tax): $81.77
Total price I paid out of pocket after sales and my $30 Max Perks reward: $10.71!

After all of our crazy moving adventures the last few weeks, this was my first frugal shopping endeavor in weeks. It feels nice to be "back in the saddle," so to speak. :-)
