Each year, I always post about Box Tops, that’s because they have such HUGE benefits for schools! I’m sharing the Buy 5, Earn $5 in Box Tops in partnership with Acorn Influence and Walmart, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
It’s that time of year when school supplies are in abundance and the smell of freshly sharpened pencils is looming through the air, that means it’s back to school season. Along with back to school season, Box Tops tend to be on a variety of products that most of us regularly purchase. Did you know these Box Tops can help schools in HUGE ways? That’s right, they can really provide for schools especially when funding for schools may be low in many areas. Even if you don’t have kids in schools, I’m begging you, save those Box Tops and take them to a nearby school in your area. I guarantee you the administration there will be grateful for it.
We have been collecting box tops for years now at our kid’s schools. My son’s school has a contest between classes each year to see who can collect the most. I’m sure it doesn’t surprise you that his class has won the last several years now. That’s because we are collecting them all year long and we know the importance of the things they provide for schools too. My son’s school even bought a popcorn maker for their school.
I’m sure that doesn’t sound like much, but it’s been a huge benefit to the school. They get to do fun popcorn and movie days to encourage the students for a job well done, plus they are able to sell popcorn at events now like their school play. The popcorn maker was purchased with the box tops. They also were able to buy electronics for classrooms too, which is greatly needed in the world we live in today where everything is done electronically.
My daughter’s preschool was able to completely rebuild their playground just by using box top collections. That’s such a great blessing for their school, which is privately funded, so anything for them helps.
Right now, you can head to Walmart and buy 5 products to earn $5 in Box Tops! This is my favorite time of year because you can earn so many extra box tops on products you already buy. We picked up Mott’s Fruit Snacks, which happen to be a kid favorite in our home to put in lunches, plus just to snack on as we finish out the summer. Then, they are also on a variety of cereals, bars, and cleaning products too. They are even on Kleenex, which means you can stock up on Kleenex for the classroom plus get your box tops too!
Plus, they also have a box tops app that you can use to scan your receipts and track your box tops. It’s simple to download, then keep track all year long!
Has your school benefited from box tops? I’d love to hear some of the things your school was able to provide students because of the box tops, plus get some ideas of things our school may be able to purchase too!
Remember to head to Walmart and stock up and even if you don’t have kids in school, reach out and drop them by your local school.
Happy back to school season!
