I receive monetary compensation from General Mills and SC Johnson in exchange of my endorsement of Box Tops For Education.
Are your kids heading back to school soon? If they are anything like my kids they are excited about the start of a new school year. This time of year we tend to focus on shopping for back to school supplies and picking out the perfect first day of school outfit, but it’s just as important to stock up on their favorite snacks, easy breakfast ideas and lunch box staples before the new school year starts. In addition to sharing our back to school staples I’m also going to show you how we create a fun Box Top storage and organization ideas that will help you start the school year off right!
As a daughter of teachers, I am passionate about supporting education, teachers and our schools. Which is why I’m happy to support programs like Box Top for Education. If you have elementary-aged children you are probably familiar with this sight, a pile of clipped box tops scattered every which way. For educators, these tiny little pieces of cardboard are an exciting sight, but for parents, it can be a source of frustration trying to keep up with them and remembering to actually send them to school.
We’ve been collecting Box Tops for years and until recently I’ve been stashing them in my junk drawer in the kitchen. As you can imagine when it comes time to turn them in I forget where they are, or can’t find them in the cluttered mess of the junk drawer. As a new school year starts I decided it was time to finally figure out a fun Box Top storage and organization solution. Our Tattle Monster has been sitting on top of the fridge for the last few years just collecting dust (it seems like the kids have actually outgrown the “tattle” phase.) My girls suggested we use our colorful monster box to collect our Box Tops, and I thought it was the perfect solution for keeping our box tops organized.
The kids are excited about “feeding” our monster with all of the box tops we collect from our favorite snacks and go-to breakfast and lunch box staples. I like to stock up on my kids favorite General Mills and Ziploc® products at Sam’s Club, where we can buy in bulk and earn cash for my kids’ school with the Box Tops for Education program. Box Tops can be found on a number of products including Lucky Charms, Cheerios, Fruit Roll-Ups, Nature Valley bars, Yoplait and Ziploc brand® bags.
If you have a Box Top collection program at school, I highly encourage you to get involved by collecting box tops. It can be a profitable program for schools. Each year our school collects Box Tops and through the program we earn enough money to buy technology items for the classrooms. I love that such a small effort on my part can contribute to something that will have a big impact on the teachers and students at my kids’ school.
Although small in size, these fun and simple box top storage and organization ideas are an easy way to keep these little pieces of school gold organized and under control!
