Two years ago I was lucky enough to do an Office Max Back to School Review. So, I already knew they made very high quality and good-looking school supplies. Needless to say, I was beyond happy to work with them again this year. I received the very nice package of products from Office Max pictured above.
One of my favorite products that I received is the awesome pink stapler from their Schoolio brand. I just love that it’s pink with jewels on it. Now, I will know for sure which stapler is mine. I mean it’s pink & sparkly! 😀 I also love the matching scissors. I think I will probably be the first teacher with pink bejeweled matching stapler and scissors and I’m excited about it.
I also enjoyed the really fun designs of the binder, notebook, and folder. I mean school work can get admittedly boring. However, the stuff I store my work in doesn’t have to be boring with the help of OfficeMax. The folder on the right is so fun. I could sit and play with it for several minutes. The binder on the left is fun and psychedelic. The notebook on the lower left is simple yet cute.
I really liked the set of erasers I received as well. I like that they can be placed together to form the pretty flower. Separately, they are a good size eraser. The pen and pad of paper set was interesting. I will NOT be taking this into my future classroom. I don’t think it’s appropriate for a teacher to carry. However, for a student it would be acceptable. I think it’s cute that the pen looks like lipstick. I’m not real wild about the lip-shaped paper. Although, I realize it fits with the pen perfectly. I guess I’m just too old and concerned about stuff though.
Have you ever purchased OfficeMax school or office supplies? What did you think of them?
