Office Max Manager's Chair

If you missed my money-saving tips this morning on Indianapolis’ B105.7, here’s the rundown!

  • The huge deals this week are at Office Max! How about a new black swivel chair for your home office, for just ten bucks after MaxPerks rewards? The price on the Glee II Mid-Back Manager Chair is $79.99, and you’ll earn $70 back in Rewards. This was offered a few months ago, and I absolutely took advantage of it, the timing was perfect as we were needing a new office chair!

Would you like to win tickets to the Indiana State Fair?  Enter to win at these fellow Indy blogger contests, WritRams and Mom for Less.

Happy Mother’s Day!

by Ann-Marie on May 13, 2012

Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope you enjoy a nice day celebrating with your family and make new memories.

I’ll be enjoying lunch with my family and my parents, then heading to the Rhythm Discovery Center in downtown Indy for some fun banging drums!  Later this afternoon I might sneak off to my favorite local coffee hotspot and enjoy a little ‘me’ time with one of my umpteen unread magazines. What I won’t be doing is cooking or cleaning, except for laundry which I’m a stickler on.

What are your plans for the day? Share in a comment what your family is doing for you today or the fun you have planned!

If you’ll be heading to lunch or dinner (or even a mid-day snack!), don’t forget about my list of Mother’s Day Restaurant Freebies & Deals to shave off a few bucks or get a free sweet treat!

Here’s a little quote I found on Pinterest that I think speaks for all moms…

When you are a mother,
You’re never really alone in your thoughts.
A mother always has to think twice …
Once for herself, and once for her child.

Have a wonderful day!
