$125 School Supply Giveaway – Last Day to Enter

Reminder: Today is the last day to enter the Moms by Heart & Office Max $125 School Supply Giveaway. Head over HERE to submit your entry!

Giveaway: $125 in OfficeMax School Supplies!

To help back-to-school shopping dollars stretch, OfficeMax is providing a season of stock-up prices on all your education essentials.  You’ll find weekly sale prices of $0.25, $0.50 and $1, with some items available for 100% back in MaxPerks Rewards.  It is my favorite place to buy office supplies, not only for the prices, but for the high quality on-trend products too.   Have a look at the collection above, which includes backpack, binders, notebooks and more, all coordinated in the season’s hottest hues.

I rarely miss a week shopping back to school sales at OfficeMax.  In fact I was there just yesterday taking advantage of the deals this week.  I have a pen obsession, you see.  Well pens, paper, staplers…pretty much all office supplies.  I’m like a kid in a candy store.  I’m thinking I need a support group of some sort.  Or maybe a 12 step program.  But that’s a conversation for another day.  In any event, you can visit OfficeMax’s back-to-school web page at www.officemax.com/backtoschool to search by zip code for in-store and online promotions, view school supply recommendations by grade and shop directly online for school supplies.

OfficeMax School Supply Drive
OfficeMax is hosting an annual School Supply Drive.  Now through October 1st you can donate supplies inside your local store for teachers in your area. They will then be distributed to local schools on October 1 during the annual A Day Made Better event in which OfficeMax surprises 1,000 teachers with a total of $1 million worth of OfficeMax-donated school supplies.

ENDED Giveaway: Foodsaver Master Chef Kit

UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED AND WINNER HAS BEEN CHOSEN

Being a frugal mom means more than just clipping coupons. It means finding ways to save in every area of our lives. Cutting down on food spoilage is one example. With a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer, food stays fresh up to 5 times longer because it removes the air that damages your food and keeps it out! Recently I was given a Foodsaver Master Chef Kit to try in my home. It was perfect timing since we were in the midst of our monthly meal prepping weekends, so I was able to take it for a spin with a variety of foods. Here’s my evaluation:

  1. Gentle Seal Button – The Master Chef Unit comes with a Gentle Seal Button which was great for sealing my breads, rolls and muffins.  It created a slow, gradual suction which preserved the integrity of my baked goods.  No crumbling whatsoever.  Two thumbs up.
  2. Container Feature – This unit also comes with a hose that attaches to FoodSaver containers to remove the air.  I didn’t use this feature, but I think it’s a nice extra to have.
  3. Space Saver – This unit is tall and compact, so it uses very little counter space.  I’m not a person who loves to have things left out on the counter, but this one is staying put so I can use it through the week whenever needed.
  4. Automatic Sensor – The unit senses when you insert a bag and automatically starts the sealing process.  Super easy.
  5. Use Premade Bags or Cut Your Own – Yes!  I love that I can create my own bags of any size so there is less waste!  This unit comes with a 10 foot roll of Heat Seal so it will last quite a while.

If you’re still on the fence about whether this would be a good money saving investment, then head over to the Foodsaver Facebook page to use the Super $aver Calculator for an estimate of how much you can save annually.

ENDED Giveaway: Veggie Tales DVD Set – $100 Value!

UPDATE: GIVEAWAY IS OVER AND WINNER HAS BEEN SELECTED

If you’ve got a Veggie Tales fan in your household (like I do!), you’ll be happy to learn of a new movie released yesterday called VeggieTales: The League of Incredible Vegetables. The title helps teach a lifelong lesson in handling fear, and includes a brand-new League theme song and music video by Grammy-nominated and Dove Award-winning group, Newsboys.

It was a bright and sunny day in Bumblyburg until Dr. Flurry came to town. This chillin’ villain wants to freeze the entire city in fear! This job is too big for LarryBoy to handle alone, so he turns to “The League of Incredible Vegetables” for help! Thingamabob (Bob the Tomato), S-Cape (Mr. Lunt), Vogue (Petunia Rhubarb) and Ricochet (Junior Asparagus) are up for the task, but find that their own fears could land them in Dr. Flurry’s deep freeze! Will they remember to turn to the One who is bigger than all their fears before the whole town ends up on ice? Find out in this heroic new VeggieTales episode with a lesson in handling fear!

The kids and I are huge Veggie Tales fans, so I was thrilled to partner with the folks from Big Idea to offer a huge giveaway here on Moms by Heart.  In honor of this new movie release, one lucky winner will receive everything listed below – 8 items total!

Just leave a comment in the form below and let us know your favorite Veggie Tales movie title so far.
