It never fails that at some point we end up throwing valuable box tops away because I do not realize they are on the packaging that I have used. This is basically $.10 down the drain that could help my sons classroom and his school. To help with this little issue, I invented the One Minute Box Tops™ Dash, which is basically a timed scavenger hunt in our pantry, starting with the youngest member of the family (2.5) and working our way up to the oldest and most experienced Box Topper, Mommy!
My children have a blast out of this game, and it is an easy way for me to collect the Box Tops™ and go ahead and put them in the envelope to send to school. Of course, a few of the products that have Box Tops do not allow that I remove them right at that moment, but at least it brings my attention to the fact that it does contain Box Tops™, so I can remember that after I use the product.
In case you missed my last post, Box Tops™ are incredibly valuable to your child's school, which is the reason that we get creative with saving the labels. Box Tops™ are worth $0.10 for your child’s school and Box Tops™ is one of America’s largest school earnings loyalty programs, with over 80,000 k-8 school participating in the program. Schools can use Box Tops™ cash to buy whatever they need like books, computers, or even gym equipment! They $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996, which is an amazing amount of equipment during all of the intense budget cuts that schools are under.
I have found in my shopping outings that Walmart provides the best prices in the are for Box Tops™ pantry staples, so it is where I love to go. By collecting Box Tops™, I give my family foods they love while helping our very poor, rural school in the process!
