Are you saving your Box Tops from freebies? Its FREE money for your school!

As you all know I love superstacking. 
Superstacking to me is pairing a store sale, with a store and manufacturer's coupon and a rebate.  Online this means stacking an online sale with an online coupon code and ebates.  For the daily deals this means pairing a sale with a free credit and a coupon code.  The list is endless and just makes me tingly all over thinking about them all.
Did you ever think of Boxtops as a superstacking excercise?
Box Tops for Education was created by General Mills in 1996 as an easy way to help make a difference for kids and schools. Since then, schools have earned more than $375 million through the program to help get the things they need-from books and school supplies to playground equipment and computers. Help make a difference in schools by clipping Box Tops from more than 240 brands, including Cheerios, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Hamburger Helper, Kleenex, Ziploc, Hefty, Juicy Juice, Avery, Welch´s, Land O´Lakes and Brita. Find out how much your school has earned and learn other ways to earn cash for your school at

I've been collecting Boxtops ever since I had my son because the day care that he went to collected them to earn money for school supplies.  For each boxtop that you simply clip from the select brands that carry them it will earn your school 10 cents.  Even if you only get a few boxtops a month every little helps.  My children's old daycare used to run contests where the class that collected the most would earn a free pizza lunch and the child that collected the most would earn a free scholastic book.  Being the coupon junkie that I am my son won the free scholastic book several times in a row.....

To me Boxtops are a win win superstacking excercise.  From my General Mills freebies from pairing a grocery store sale with a store and manufacture's coupon I can benefit a school with easy free cash via the boxtops.  Are you collecting yours? 

Watch this YouTube video here to see how Box Tops turned a typical day at the grocery store into something extraordinary.

I don't have a child in school, so could I mail mine to a scchool? I have some in a baggy. My great aunt would pick them up but she hasn't for a while.

Check if your local school is participating by going here and putting your zip code: then maybe email your school and ask if they accpet boxtops in the mail? That would be a lovely thing to do for your community! Remember the kids are our future - every little helps in building a bright future!

The BTFE program is so easy to participate it. OUr school doens't advertise it so people don't know how to participate.
