Do you save your Box Tops for education?
Growing up, we always saved them in my house. My mom was a public school teacher for 34 years. She always saved our box tops.
That is a photo of my mom the day of my wedding, isn’t she pretty?
Even now, she has been retired for 6 years and all of us kids have been out of school for a long time. She still saves them and sends them over to her neighbors house so they can bring in to their school.
It is so true, that even the best schools could use some extra money.
Right now, Wal-mart is offering several bonus products. These are products that have up to five box tops! To see a full list of participating products, please visit their website.
I picked up several breakfast items to get us ready for next week. Next week my older son starts preschool again. Mornings can get a little crazy, getting him ready for school. I picked up some cereal and breakfast bars for quick breakfasts. ( Plus some sugary cereals for desserts)
Here is a quick synopsis of the Box Top for education program
– Each Box Top is worth $.10 for your child’s school ( so yes, several of these bonus items are worth$ .50!)
– Schools can use Box Tops for Education money for whatever they need
– Over 80,000 k-12 public schools participate
– Box Tops has donated over 525 million dollars to schools since 1996
When my mom visits my house ( remember, my oldest is just starting preschool). She has always cut the tops off of all my my boxes and turned them in somewhere.
If you don’t currently have a child or grandchild in school, find someone who does and have them bring them in to their school! See if you can mail them in to your local school! It’s such a good cause!
Stay tuned, late next week, i am going to be sharing with you a fun idea for collecting Box Tops from all of your neighbors, grandparents and family members who don’t currently have someone in school!
