I’m sure most of you have heard of Box Tops for Education. My kids always get super excited when mom buys anything with Box Tops, because it means they get to take them to their school. I recently stocked up at my local Albertson’s Stock Up Sale in Carlsbad, NM (Ads may be different from store to store, so be sure to check out your local Albertsons Stock Up Sale). Albertson is my favorite place to shop for several reasons, if you did not already read Why I Love My Local Albertsons Plus The Stock Up Sale be sure to read it and let me know if your Albertsons ROCKS too!
Okay, back to the Box Tops Labels. If you are not familiar with them and why they are so important let me give you the rundown.
What are Box Tops for Education?
Box Tops for Education is one of the nation’s school fundraising loyalty programs, and have been helping our schools since 1996. There is currently over 240 participating products, and it’s a super easy way for the schools our children attend to earn money for things they need. Schools are able to use their Box Tops for cash to purchase anything they need, even field trips. Schools in America have earned over $535 MILLION from Box Tops, and they are still going strong.
Three Ways To Collect Box Tops and Help Your Local Schools

I actually received a bonus coupon for my kids to take to school the last time I Stocked Up at the Albertsons Stock Up Sale. Which was awesome. I purchased several General Mills products, at an amazing price, and they had Box Tops. Then to make things even better I received a coupon like voucher for extra Box Tops… I have never received a voucher from Albertsons for Box Tops before. I admit it was a nice surprise, my kids loved it, and as always their school appreciates any Box Tops we send their way.
I noticed on the Albertsons ad that it’s an awesome promotion they have going on right now. When you buy 10 participating General Mills Bo Tops for Education Items, you get 25 Bonus eBox Tops when you checkout. There you have it, SAVE at the Stock Up Sale, and help your local schools. Pretty fabulous!
Collecting Box Tops for your local school is easy, fun for the kids, and great for the schools. I have noticed it had taught my kids the importance of giving back too. Since they started leaning what it means, and how it felt to help out and give back when they starting collecting Box Tops for their school.
I have noticed a difference in both of my girls, but collecting Box Tops has had a major impact on Vayda. She asked me last year why we collected Box Tops. They talked about it in school all the time, but I never gave her any Box Tops to take in. She had no idea I had been collecting them for several years and had a HUGE stash of them, lol. I finally gave in and sent them all with her one day, and from that day on I think she experienced first hand how it felt to do something that matters for an organization that needs it, and shows you how much they appreciate it. She said that everyone at school was talking about all the Box Tops she brought in all day, it made her feel good, and she did not know how much they helped her teachers. Yepie for Box Tops!
