In a few short weeks my girls will be heading back to school. Alleigh will be a second grader and Kaelyn will be a kindergartener. The girls are both excited for school to start, to meet their new teachers, and to see all of their friends, but before that day gets here we have lots of preparing to accomplish. The biggest task will be checking all the items off of their supply lists which seem to be a mile long. Luckily I can get both of their lists completely finished in one stop to Walmart. Plus they have the best shopping carts… yes, they can be cumbersome to push around the store – I find them easier to pull from the front… but one can fit my whole crew.
Once we finished up in the “Back to School” section there were still a few more items we needed to complete the girls lists. One of those items being Kleenex which was also a fun reminder that cold and flu season is right around the corner as well, but I digress. As we made our way down the paper products aisle Alleigh grabbed a three pack bundle of “Back to School” Kleenex and was super excited to see that they had Bonus Box Tops.
Collecting Box Tops is super important to my girls. Not only does their school receive 10 cents for each Box Top, but each month they reward the classroom that has collected the most Box Tops with a pizza party. As we continued down the aisle I couldn’t help but notice that there were also DOUBLE Box Tops on Scott Extra Soft Bath Tissue and Mega Roll Towels as well as Viva Paper Towels. I knew we were running low on paper towels and toilet tissue so I took the opportunity to stock up.
Once we got home from our back to school shopping trip the girls wouldn’t leave me alone until I had cut out the Box Top certificates and added them to our growing stash. They are really excited to turn them in when school starts.
If you are ready to get back to school shopping done like a boss then head over to Walmart. You can get all of your kiddos school supplies in one stop and stock up on household essentials at the same time. Plus you’ll get a head start on collecting Box Tops. It only takes a few seconds to cut out and save them, but the benefits are huge for our schools. In fact last year Alleigh’s elementary school raised over three thousand dollars from Box Tops! Do you save them for your children’s school? If not please consider starting – such an awesome program.
