Last weekend, we went to Office Max and picked up new filing cabinets for our home office…for free!
I had quite a few MaxPerks rewards accumulated. I recycle my toner cartridges there, which gives me $2 or $3 per cartridge (can’t remember for sure how much). And I go through a lot of toner, with preparing school work for the kids each week! I also pay close attention to their sales, because they often advertise items that are free after MaxPerks. The backpack that I am using as a diaper bag right now was one such item.
Anyway, I had about $180 in MaxPerks (the salesman was blown away when we told him that), so we got three new filing cabinets that are much better quality and will hold up a lot longer than our old ones. Plus, they’re bigger! Only two are used for filing and the other is for storage. I keep all of my stationery from invitationbox.com in one of the drawers and the other is for Chad’s stuff.
We were also able to buy more toner with the remainder of our MaxPerks, which was awesome. You can never have too much toner…and free toner is even better!
