Win-It Wednesday: Verbatim Office Makeover Prize Pack!

by Tara Kuczykowski on March 31, 2010 · 450 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting several 24-hour giveaways throughout the day to give you plenty of chances to win!

My husband recently turned our little used dining room into a new office where I can work semi-uninterrupted. So I've been having fun searching for new supplies and other tools that will help me manage keeping Deal Seeking Mom running smoothly. I was thrilled when Verbatim asked me to participate in their "Verbatim’s Got Your Back(up!)" campaign, because it meant that I got to test drive some cool office products, plus have the opportunity to share with one of my readers!

  • 4 GB TUFF-N-TINY USB flash drive -- I was struck by how incredibly small this flash drive is. I mean, I know it's called the TUFF-N-Tiny, but it's positively...tiny! It claims to withstand all kinds of wear and tear -- dust, water, static -- and you can keep it on your keychain so you can share files in an instant. Plus it comes in fun colors, which always appeals to me.
  • DVD+R LightScribe Color Spindle -- The LightScribe DVD+Rs also come in five fun colors to brighten up the office and making burning files just a little more fun. When you're done burning, you can flip them over and burn a permanent label right on the disc! Unfortunately I don't have a DVD burner that supports this feature, but it's almost enough to tempt me into buying a new one.
  • Purple Nano Wireless Mouse -- I've owned a wireless mouse in the past and was not pleased with it. There was no way to switch it off so it used batteries like water, and the USB connection was huge. Luckily these drawback are both addressed in the Nano Wireless Mouse! The USB connection is very unobtrusive, and when you store it in the bottom of the mouse, it shuts the mouse down. And did I mention that it's purple?!?
  • 250GB CLON Portable Hard Drive -- Backing up my data is very important to me. I have several years worth of digital photos and other important files that I'd be devastated over losing. The CLON Portable Hard Drive makes it simple to backup my music, photos and more on a regular basis!

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win a 4 GB TUFF-N-TINY USB flash drive, a DVD+R LightScribe Color Spindle, a Purple Nano Wireless Mouse and a 250GB CLON Portable Hard Drive from Verbatim!

I would hate to lose the videos on my computer of my children growing up. The videos show them throughout the different stages of their lives, and I would be completely lost and have a meltdown if anything happened to them! Speaking of, anyone know of a deal on a fireproof safe?

I would hate to lose my pictures the most, as I don't have hard copies yet of a great deal of them. I suppose I wouldn't want to lose my college papers either, but can't say that I would miss them that much! : )
