Staples Big Chair Event

Staples.ca is a great source to buy office supplies, technology, ink and much more.







In April, I worked with Staples and reviewed a Tassimo T55 Home Brewing System. This time, I went to my local Staples store, in Hamilton Ontario, for their Big Chair Event valid through to June 4. 

Center Mall location

The Big Chair Event is all about picking out the best office chair that works for you. For someone like myself, who spends most of their day in an office chair, having the proper support is important. While at the event today, I learned that the back of your chair should come at least to your shoulder. That ensures proper support, and keeps you comfortable when sitting for long periods of time.

So I went about trying out each and every chair available. Thankfully my sister was there to take photos. Maybe not the most flattering for me, but definitely flattering for the chairs.


These chairs were not for me. I felt like I was going to fall forward.Yes, they are adjustable, but it just didn't feel right. That's what I was saying at the moment my sister snapped the shot.


This is the lucky winner that gets to hold my weight everyday from here on out. It felt right. It has lumbar support for sitting long hours, it is adjustable, and it's pretty. This is my happy face.  (^_^)  Sad, but true.


Here is the chair, without me in it. Notice the price sign above?? That's how much you would save if you bought one. $100!!! That's a steal!!! For it's use and functionality, it is a fantabulous bargain!

I took a screenshot of the flyer, where it is showcasing the event chairs. You can get an idea of the variety for yourself.


And here is a shot of some guest chairs that you can incorporate into the design of your office. Another great use for the chairs could be your dining room too. Thank the manager at Staples, Center Mall location for that idea!


Love the groovy pattern on the one chair. Very chic!! Decent prices too!! $40, that's it!!

Plus we have to zero in on the Airmiles signage everywhere.


And that was just one sign... they were not all the same. As you can see, it gives savings and Airmiles info. In case you don't know what Airmiles are, you can accumulate them and get stuff, all kinds of stuff, not just flying or anything flight related. You need an iPod, well, save your points and get one. See?!

Back to the event and the chairs. 

Now that I had my chair picked out, a nice lad who works at the store brought it out to my sisters' truck and put it in. We became aware at that moment it would be our problem to deal with when we got it back to my house, but we weren't too concerned. Sure enough, we got in my house alright, and I got to work putting it together. Usually I make the hubby do stuff like that, but I couldn't wait. I was like a kid in a candy store.

Long story short, I got it together and it's fits perfect in my home office.

I love it. The hubby came home from work and loves it too! So thanks Staples for a great experience and helping me find the fit that is right for me.

  6. There are various benefits to having your residence furniture custom made. For newbies, you get the flexibility of getting exactly what you require. You do not have to help compromise on workstation size. One example is, say you have a computer system with the oversized screen. Instead of buying a regular-sized desk and then dealing with to situate the keyboard, computer mouse button, lamp, and any papers to allow the screen, you can have something built to hold programs.

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
