Hard to believe as it is that back to school season is already upon us. My kids return after Labor Day but nonetheless the count is on! As soon as they start seeing back to school supplies on the store shelves the reality of it hits. Reality hits for mom too…back to schedules, routines, bedtimes, packing lunches and endless amounts of papers coming home in backpacks nightly.

Many of those papers coming home are in the form of requests. Requests for: classroom helpers, requests for donations of supplies and fundraising effors of every sort imaginable. As I’m more of a ‘seasoned’ parent (been around the block a time or two) I’ve realized that our families doesn’t have to participate in every single fundraising/volunteer effort that arises at the schools. As much as I LOVE helping, it doens’t always fit into our schedules. And as much as I love helping raise funds I literally don’t have a wide enough circle or family/friends to purchase 16 dozen frozen pizza kits to help our school.

So what do I do? A lot but in different aspects. I always help our classroom teachers by donating items for the classroom. They can never get enough boxes of kleenex, hand sanitizer, glue sticks or resealable bags. I send in extras all throughout the school year. Teachers don’t want to keep asking for these items to replenish their stockpiles. I send them in without being prompted.

The next way I help is by vigilantly collecting Box Tops! Yes Box Tops! You’d be surprised at how quickly they add up!

Schools benefit tremendously from the simple task of Box Tops clipping! They can use the earnings to purchase much needed equipment for OUR students. Reynolds Kitchens and Hefty are proud supporters of this program. What I love about Box Tops is how easily they can be on so many items I use every single day.

Take for example my last shopping trip, four items with Box Tops on them. Items I was replenishing in my pantry and RV, we go through a ton of cups and trash bags. SCORE!!!

Both Reynolds Kitchens and Hefty products are products you can easily find Box Tops on. You’ll learn to spot the Box Tops logo on products you buy everyday. I love Reynolds Kitchens Bakeware, great for when you DO sign up for the school bakesales or need to donate baked goods. No hunting down your pans after the event.

  1. Box Tops is a great program. It’s a great way to support your school just by buying things you already buy. I’ve been collecting for years now, and was even the coordinator for the school for a while.

  2. It is amazing at home many products the Box Tops for Education are on. We keep a container on standby in the kitchen ready to go.

  3. I was the Box Top Coordinator at my kid’s school for many years. It really helped us get the supplies our kids needed. I still save and donate my box tops to our school because it really makes a difference and you can find Box Tops on so many products.

  4. We always cut box tops! It’s such an easy thing to do. My daughter usually has bags full of them to take to her school.

  5. We collect a ton of box tops at the school that I work at…they really add up when everyone collects them.

  6. Wow, the Box Tops program is a great way to support your kid’s school. I didn’t realize so many products were part of Box Tops!

  7. When I was in school, box top was around but was never all that big I guess. Teachers never asked for them nor were we asked to bring them to school from any other staff members.

  8. We don’t have this program over here but I think it is a great one for donating to schools.

  9. Box Tops for Education are the best way to earn extra money for schools. My children are in college, but I still collect them for my cousin who still has children in our local school system. I will probably continue giving them to the school even after they’ve graduating. Schools are always in need of money and this is an easy way to help.

  10. What a wonderful grand prize for our schools – I could never get into saving box tops for long! I know so bad.

    But I do appreciate this program!!

    And didn’t know about the Reynals products

  11. I’m in love with boxtops for education. I’ve seen them do amazing things for schools.

    My son goes to a virtual school but is still technically a student of the county school district. Even though he doesn’t attend a brick and mortar school, the school still collects box tops. It’s a great program that helps a lot of schools.

  13. I had no idea about the ‘box tops’ campaign! Thank you! My kids are long out of school,my granddaughter starts in September and I had no idea I could support schools! This is a great idea!

  14. Sandy N Vyjay says:

    I think this is a great way to support schools. Donating things that are of value and useful to the school is a nice and practical way.

  15. I was super fortunate a few years ago when I was a reviewer blogger; I got the chance to go to Box Tops University in Minnesota. It was amazing! At that time, I came home, and took over as our boxs tops coordinator. Box Tops are so important for schools, since funding can be very limited.

  16. I am a box top addict. I even cut them off items in my mom and sister’s pantry. I’ve been collecting a lot over the summer. They will be thrilled when we turn these in.

  17. it is a very simple way to help schools (which is important to shaping/educating our generations to become intellectual and capable people in the future!) The more tools/products the schools can purchase for the students ‘our children’ the better. great post to spread awareness ; )
