Bulk Back to School Shopping

We're getting ever closer to the start of back to school season. Ads are rolling out, supply lists are circulating and parents everywhere wonder how they always seem longer every year. With multiple children, checking off each item on a school supply list can be a real drain on the wallet. There is a solution, and it not only makes shopping for this year easier, but can ease the burden on future years as well.

One of the keys to saving money on food purchases is to buy in bulk, which not only gets you more for a better value, but also reduces the number of times you'll need to go to the store. Why not apply that to school supplies as well? Even with children in different grades, many of the basics are the same. Buy multiples of folders, pens, pencils, highlighters, and markers, and you'll pay one low price to cover the needs of more than one student. Anything left over can be stored for mid-year replacements; this stuff will be at school and prone to being lost or worn down as the year goes on.

Check out our back to school page for our deals on school supplies, now including a number of Value Pack options for you to check everything off this year's list, and perhaps have some stocked for next year as well.

Fellowes AeraMax Air Purifiers

Outdoors, allergies are always on the mind of anyone who suffers from them. Allergens such as pollen and ragweed are everywhere outside, but the air indoors is equally bothersome. At home, pollutants such as pet dander, dust particles, and toxins and residue embedded in furniture and carpets pose major health risks. Even the air in the office can be contaminated by vapors from markers or toner, mold from air vents, or a number of germs and particles lurking in cubicle walls. Unregulated office air is considered one of the most dangerous environments we're exposed to.

Air purifiers are the solution. Purifiers draw in air from the room and cycle it through a number of filters. This eliminates unwanted odors, particles, germs, dust and many other allergens. The new Fellowes AeraMax purifiers go a step further with a unique AeraSafe filter. This removes bacteria, mildew and fungi that can lead to odors and produce allergens. Released air also includes particles that remove additional pollutants from the air.

The Fellowes AeraMax is available in three sizes, each serving three different room sizes (90 square feet, 190 square feet, and 290 square feet). Ordering a purifier in one of the larger two sizes will net you a gift card of up to $25 for BP, Exxon Mobil, or Subway.
