Let’s just face it. Education is not cheap in any way shape or form! Whether you have a kid in elementary school or college, parenting puts the strain on the pocketbook. I often wonder how I can truly help the school my son goes to without all those crazy fundraising programs they offer. One opportunity this back to school season is shopping and sharing box tops with the Box Tops for Education program. I mean, we’re already spending money for our families why not take the time to save for schools too!
With Box Tops for Education it’s really as simple as buying products with the fun new app they have out. Personally, I grabbed a bunch of kitchen stuff as Wal-Mart has a Back to School Buy 5 Earn $5 in Box Tops program. If you buy 5 Box Tops products in one transaction until August 31st then scan your receipt into the app you earn an additional 50 box tops for your school. Easy right?
What’s super fun about the Box Tops for Education program is that there is a zillion products that carry the program too. Everything from soup to cereal. I actually printed out a list of participating Box Top products before I hit up Walmart to grab the few things I needed.
By the way have you seen the info Walmart has on Box Tops? They actually give you recipes to incorporate into your kitchen and inspire you to grab more box tops. Hello Mac-n-Cheese-Peppers-and-Peas! Where have you been all my life?
If you’re looking for inspiration for schools there is some great content on the Box Tops website. After checking out the site and finally getting to down to business for the schools I’ve learned it is easy to shop for good and feel good about your shopping!
Have you ever done the Box Tops program? What kind of cool things does your school enjoy from the program? Love to hear your stories too! #BoxTops
