Big Bad Wolf Big Bad Box Sale 2017 @MIECC

It's BBW Books buffet time again! This is different from the normal book sales. Here we buy EMPTY BOX(ES) instead  of books. Then we just fill the box up with books at the sale and bring them home. No need to pay for the  books.

When Mamarazzi told me that, I thought she was joking. I kept asking her if she is sure we can walk out of the hall without paying for the  books.


On the first day of the sale she went alone and brought home 1 big box and 1 small box(family package RM160).

Note :

Small box - RM79.90
Big Box Rm99.90
Family package(1 Big 1 smaĺl) : RM160
Extra rm5 off for DIGI and HLB credit card users

Managed to fit 31 books in the small box; which ain't a small feat. The small box have pretty odd measurement.

It was easier to pack the big box. Tada! 63 books in box.

Average around RM2 per book. Assuming each book priced at normal BBW price of RM8/book..we got a whopping RM752 worth of books! Minus the cost of RM160, petrol , toll and parking.. It's still a saving of RM500+.

Bear in mind, the books are leftover from last December sale, Jakarta sale and Bangkok sale. Surprisingly, most of the books were in very good condition; unlike previous years.


Thinking of crates and crates of those gorgeous books, Mamarazzi can't help herself and went for a second round last Thursday. I was pretty excited. Though she said we'll go in the evening where people are having dinner and breaking fast, I got ready at 10a.m!

Finally there. Happily shopping for books. Bumped into Uncle C who came all the way from Johor for this.

Unboxing ceremony! Can guess how many books we managed to squeeze in?

Tada!a total of 51 books. Less than the1st day but still pretty good. Less than RM2 per book.

No space wasted . *LOL*.  Yay! I can open "shop" liao! Come come Small Kucing Books Stall.

The sale is still on till 4th of June 2017. So don't miss out on this opportunity and test out your organising skill. See how many can you fit into the box.

Thank you to the Big Bad Wolf Books for bringing such good bargain and listening to your followers. This year's box sale is the best of all the years!

  4. I still love my real books and cannot imagine to live without them, lil kitten ... Especially the books that I read in my child hood are like my friends and am sure build my character to be strong... as no game on any computer can do the same for your wellbeing and soul, remember that, my precious lil Malaysian kitten ... now that you ae getting a bit older, I am telling you this: Don't let anything enter your soul that might be bad for you ... what is good for you, you will know in your heart ... what is bad for you, you will know in your heart as well ... ok ? Take good care of what to expose you to and what not, ok ? Love, cat.
