Make It A Game At The Store
Here at the Reasoner house, we are “Seasoned Box Tops Users.” It’s something that both the kiddos and I can do that is fairly easy to help out with both of their schools. Basically, as you shop you look for the Box Tops on the labels. Then after using the particular item, you clip the Box Tops save them up and send them to school. Easy Peasy. We recently went to our local WalMart and found a few products that had Buy 5 Earn $5 Box Tops on participating items, Only at Walmart, offer available in store on specially marked packaging on the label. The kids and I then turned it into a scavenger hunt to see what all we could find.
In total, we found over 28 products that had the bonus 5 Box Tops. We only bought a few things we would actually use, however, there are just so many products available out there with this particular label you will definitely find something for you.

Last, but not least we use them as a reward system. If they get a certain amount of Box Tops collected per week they can cash those in to get out of a chore at home. This has made my kiddos creative with how they get Box Tops. They ask family members to save them. Friends of the family, etc. It really helped over the summer. In fact look at the haul in the picture above they are taking in next week! Close to 300!
10 Cents Adds Up Quick!
Each year we track our kiddos school earnings online and since we’ve been participating we have reached our goal every year! They have used earnings in the past for new school books, upgrading playgrounds, and technology upgrades. So do me a favor, don’t throw away those labels that have Box Tops on them. That’s like throwing money away and schools today need all the help they can get. If your local school doesn’t participate save them for family or friends. It will be very much appreciated by all, I promise. Now we will sit back and watch our earnings soar! Once we help out our school we give to other schools in the area. I hope you will too!
I truly think it’s an easy way for the entire family to come together to help your local school. In fact here is a video showcasing just how Box Tops are making a difference at schools across the country!
