I’m not sure I’m posting in time but just in case: My neighbors don’t collect the boxtops so ocassionally I’ll take a peek at their recycling and peel them off cereal boxes. Shh! Don’t tell.

Alot of the products I already buy have box tops on them. It makes sense to collect them for the kids’s schools. I have family members with no children saving them now for the kids..once a month they all send them to us! It works out great!Angiep.s. I just started receiving my freebies from WalMart….it is sort of like Christas!


Cheryl November 26, 2008 at 4:04 pm

I have all of my extended family and neighbors saving these boxtops now…every little bit helps!

I’m always asking family and friends for their box tops, so my daughter can take them into school. One mans trash is another man’s treasure!

We make it like a charity box and ad to it the year through. At the end of the year, he’s proud of what he’s collected and I think it instills a sense of pride. Working with the school makes one PART of the school.

Our school has box top Thursday. The kids bring in all their box tops and receive candy , little trinkets and such. It is great our school has earned so much money just by clipping the box tops. I am a member of a local moms group, and I collect from them monthly of course the ones with out school aged kids. Why not do this even if it is 100 the school makes that’s 100 they didn’t have or that doesn’t come out of your pocket.

Here’s my tip on collecting the boxtops! I roughly tear off the boxtop when I am about to recycle the package. I place those boxtops in a little bag. When I have a ton of boxtops, I carefully peel off the extra cardboard layers, discard them, and neatly trim around the edges of the boxtops. I check to see that the dates have not expired. (Rarely a problem, since the expiration dates are so far in the future!) Then I turn the boxtops into the school where I teach. Last week I turned in 80 boxtops from my family – that’s an easy $8 in profit for the school!

I send out a mass email to friends/family asking for them to save them for us and mail them to us once they’ve gathered 10 or so. Works like a charm 😉 Last year I posted a blogpost about it too…

I do not have any children in school now, but I have a very close friend that has 3 school age children and I collect the box tops for her. I really enjoy knowing that it is helping the schools.Lori

Rachel November 22, 2008 at 9:40 am

I am a teacher, so I challenge my students to bring in more than me! I keep a running tally and this year, my students beat me by 432! I happily brought in a treat to share. 🙂

I don’t really have a TIP…but I’ve been really happy lately with Campbell’s soup sales at Albertsons, as well as fishy crackers. They both have clippable labels. I keep the labels in an envelope under a magnet on the fridge. When it gets full I pass it on to my sister (I don’t have school age kids yet).


Pamela November 22, 2008 at 5:58 am

My tip is getting relatives that don’t have children to save the boxtops. We do it for my granddaughter (and my daughter who is a teacher at the same school).


Bakers Dozen Mama November 22, 2008 at 5:37 am

We have a magnetic clip on the fridge. We clip a sandwich bag to it and put all our Box tops in it. Then it is easy to fold over the top and hand it in when it is full.

A preschool I used to teach for required that parents bring in wipes and tissues once a month and we had a teacher who would go through alllllll the kleenex boxes and take off the btfes, so that every time we would open up a new box of tissues there would be hole in the bottom.


Shirley November 21, 2008 at 9:05 pm

My tip is that our school turns it into a grade level contest and the classroom at each grade taht collects the most boxtops over a certain time frame wins a cereal party! What a fun, healthy and motivating way to get the whole family involved in asking relatives and friends to help.
