It’s that time of the year again! Yup, you guessed it, It’s back to school. What a quick summer it was for my family and me. I still can’t believe that my children will be starting school soon. Boy, doesn’t the time just go by too quick? It’s unbelievable since it still feels like they just ended the school year. With every new school year, brings excitement and new challenges for my children. I will say, they’re so excited to meet their new teachers and make new friends this school year. One of the things that make it hard on children and even parents is to jump back into a routine. It’s extremely hard for my kids to get up, dressed, and out the door on time. The struggle is real in my household but needless to say, after a few days they’re ready to go.
I’ve already started stocking up on is paper products and everyday essentials for my family. It truly saves time to get their back to school supplies while shopping for my home essentials in one trip. I will also just say, my cart was full, and I was able to check off all my must-have back to school items while shopping at Walmart just the other day.
During the school year, my family and I love to collect Box Tops for Education. It helps our children’s school earn cash on things they may need that’s not in their school budget. I remember last year my children’s school was able to make money from collecting Box Tops and the classrooms who raised the most during the school year received a pizza party at the end of the year. It also helped with the cost of field trips and other must have supplies that the school needs.
So while I was shopping at Walmart, I noticed a three-pack bundle of Kleenex® that had double Box Tops. I grabbed those along with Viva Vantage® Paper Towels and Scott® Extra Soft Toilet Tissues. I totally scored with all three of household necessities.
With this school year, we set our goal to collect Box Tops pretty high. Last year we collected 125 Box Tops and this year we are motivated to collect 200. Hooray! The kids are already pretty stoked about that. Since collecting Box Tops can be challenging and easy to lose, I decided to make sure that we had a safe place to store our Box Tops this year. -And that is when my daughter and I thought of making a DIY Box Top Storage Container, and it’s super easy to make!
Take an empty Kleenex® Tissue Paper box and place one tissue on top. Using tape, put tissue on the opening of the box. Tear a small slit then add your Box Tops inside. My daughter used construction paper (yes another school supply) to decorate the front and added her flower masterpiece.
Collecting Box Tops is fun to do. I am so glad that I found Double Box Tops at Walmart while shopping for our back to school needs. It’s so helpful to grab my household and back to school supplies in one shopping trip.
So tell me, did you set a goal for collecting Box Tops this year?
