Box Tops for Education - a Giveaway!

I can hardly believe it, but school will be starting back up in less than three weeks. In fact, three weeks from tonight, we will be celebrating the first day of school with a special dinner out (it's a tradition we started years ago - we go out the first day and the last day of school - not that we don't go out other days, but they are special days).

I am in the midst of back to school shopping. My son wears a school uniform, so that part is easy and I am already done with that shopping. I've started picking up school supplies, but still have a few more things to pick up. One trip that I still need to make is a back to school trip to Sam's Club. We still need the tissues on the school supply list and we generally buy these at Sam's Club. I also find that I can pick up a lot of lunch box and snack items at Sam's Club. Their value packs of granola bars, puddings and more are great to have on hand for packing in lunch or a quick after school snack.

In August, Sam's Club and Box Tops for Education will be having a Back to School Event. When you purchase participating Box Tops Items, you will find 6 Box Tops on a Pack! What a great way to earn bonus box tops for your school. Have you ever checked out the Box Tops for Education website? I didn't realize how new the program has contributed over $340 million to participating schools! In addition to clipping Box Tops for your school, did you know that you can also earn eBoxTops for your school through online shopping and more.

    "Earn more cash for your local school at Sam’s Club this August with the 6 Box Tops on a Pack promotion. When you purchase participating Box Top items, you can collect even more Box Tops on some of your favorite General Mills brands such as Honey Nut Cheerios, Nature Valley Oats 'N Honey Crunchy Granola Bars, Totino’s Pizza Rolls, and more! Sam’s Club has your favorite back to school items from computers to clothing, and at the best values."

I remember as a kid being really excited about buying sweaters for back to school. Then I'd be disappointed when the first day of school it would be too hot to wear a sweater. I don't know why I thought early September would be sweater-weather.

My favorite memory is buying crayola crayons when my grandma took us shopping one year. I grew up with an extremely frugal mother who always bought the cheapest (often generic)brand of any given item. Every year she'd buy us the no-name brand of school supplies. One year, my grandma took us shopping, because Mom was busy. I was delighted when she bought me a box of crayola crayons. I don't know if it was just my imagination, but it seemed like they were the best crayons ever!

I remember picking up backpacks and outfits with my grandparents while I was 7. It was way interesting than shopping with my parents since I got to pick whatever and whichever I loved.

Buying the new backpack for the school year was always something I looked forward to...wow, I was pretty dorky, wasn't I?

My shopping experience (going back to school) was from my childhood. I remember my mother holding the supply list, huffing and puffing the whole time because we were having difficulty finding things...and the back to school section was packed! Every year, I remember my mom complaining about teachers insisting that folders have both the pockets and 3 prongs. :)
