Is your office divided?

Are the battle lines drawn?

The pairings complete?

Chris Smith, of Forbes Magazine, says that the average office worker spends an average of three hours a day talking, thinking, watching college basketball during the NCAA playoffs.  College loyalties become apparent and everyone has their favorite teams.  And then there’s the office pool – the bragging rights of having predicted the winners!  My husband went to Indiana University so we are especially excited about the season this year.  Indiana has been in the top rankings for most of the season and we have a great shot at winning it all!

Office Party

With the help of your Walgreen’s (often right around the corner from your office), you can have a slam dunk office viewing party!  Don’t have time to plan?  No worries, this is perfect for a last minute grab & go #SnackMadness.

Walgreen’s Shopping List

Sweet and Salty Snacks

  •   How about the perfect teamwork of chocolate and peanut butter?  Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Reese’s Pieces and other Hershey’s treats!

  •   Delish Potato Chips

Beverages

  •   Coca-Cola Zero is the sweet pairing of Coke taste and zero calories.  And the special edition cans are cool!

Decorations

  • Easy-peasey!  Pick up a roll of sports themed wrapping paper.  It makes a great table covering, wall decoration, etc.
  • Fun!  Walgreen’s has official-sized basketballs and you know after watching, you’re gonna want to play.  Makes a great table decoration, too.

Lunch

  • Pizza IS party food!  Walgreen’s has a great selection of frozen pizzas.

Choc and Peanut Butter = Teamwork Reeses

I still remember the year I won the office pool for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship!  So exciting!  (It was more luck than knowledge, shhhhh).  If you google, “free downloadable brackets” you can find many printable bracket sheets.  “Selection Sunday” is tomorrow so after that you’ll have the first round matchups.  Will your team be asked to the party?  Will they have an easy road or a tough one to the Final Four?  Where will the upsets occur?

Brackets Reeses Pieces

There’s nothing like the combination of sweet and salty!  My favorite bracket is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Delish Sea Salt Kettle Chips.  Make sure you pick up enough!  You don’t want co-workers fighting over this Final Four.

Don’t forget to use your Walgreens Balance Rewards card when you shop.  At my Walgreen’s I just enter my phone number into the keypad and it pulls up my Rewards number – sweet!  There are extra rewards for buying specific game day products like Coca-Cola Zero and Hershey’s candy.

Good luck! I hope you win your office pool when Indiana wins the tournament!

    While I’m not an IU fan (GO BUCKEYES), I am happy to see all the Big 10 teams in the tournament and my alma mater, Wichita State even made it! You can bet I’ll be filling out my brackets tomorrow!
