Can you believe summer is winding down already? Last weekend we dropped off my oldest daughter to college. Yeah, scary, right? So now that’s done with, it’s time to turn my attention to the two younger ones left at home. They start school again in about three weeks and yeah, it’s their turn for back to school shopping.
One of the rituals I have been doing for the last twelve years, ever since they started school, is to link up my grocery shopper cards with their schools so that the school can earn some money every time I shop. And I do shop a lot, so it’s a good thing that the schools benefit too and not just the stores.
Another initiative that the schools take advantage of is the Bonus Box Tops for Education. My daughters love cutting out the Bonus Box Tops off cereals and other products we have in the house so that they can turn them in at school. The schools then turn in the box tops and earn a certain percentage for their coffers! Not a bad deal, eh? Better than selling wrapping paper and other doodads to raise funds!
If you’d like to help out your school and participate, all you have to do is register at www.RewardYourSchool.com. Once you register, you will automatically receive 5 Bonus Box Tops just for signing up! You will also receive custom offers for Bonus Box Tops for purchasing participating products. Additional bonus offers are:
