It is that time of year that most mothers love and look forward to – back to school season. Don’t get me wrong. I love summer. No alarm clocks, sunshine, pools, vacation… bickering, fighting, the constant barrage of “MOM!”….. I love summer but after 3 long months, I enjoy the quiet that the school day brings with it.
Every year my kids school lists seem to get longer and more involved. It used be things like paper, pencils and crayons. But now I’m asked to provide sandwich bags, hand sanitizer, Kleenex, and other paper products. I don’t mind helping the school out and I like to make sure my money stretches as far as it can. So I’m always on the lookout for products that have Box Tops.
I’m pretty sure I could spend a lot less money if I paid attention to the back to school sales at all the stores. But I just don’t have time to stalk the sales ads and blogs with the school deals. I usually end up at Walmart to stock up on our supplies and do my normal house hold shopping as well. The end of our summer is so rushed that running around to multiple stores is just too much.
Right now you can earn BONUS Box Tops just by buying normal household supplies like good old fashioned TP. Not like we won’t ever use that! Both of my kids school lists ask for Kleenex and paper towels so I grabbed packages of Viva and Kleenex with Box Tops on those, too. Just make sure to clip the box tops off the large package AND the Box Tops off each individually wrapped package, too. It’s great to be able to help the school while buying things we need anyway.
