by Freebies4Mom on July 27, 2020 8:03 am

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of General Mills®. The opinions and text are all mine.

Free Printable Box Tops Collection Jar for your fridge

Pin It

I made a free printable Box Tops™ for Education Jar for you to stick on your fridge to help you remember to clip and collect Box Tops™ for Education. After printing you can slide it inside an 8 1/2 x 11 clear sheet protector and then use tape or magnets to stick it on the door of your fridge. It’s an easy way to keep Box Tops™ collection a priority in your kitchen!Keep an eye out for Box Tops while grocery shopping

We are filling up our shopping cart at Walmart with participating Box Tops™ for Education products from General Mills® that include breakfast foods, after school snacks and easy dinners. I’ve taught my kids to keep an eye out for the pink and yellow Box Tops™ for Education labels on products so that our normal grocery purchases can help their Elementary School.

My kids are in charge of clipping Box Tops™ from product packages and then placing them in our printable Box Tops™ Jar on the fridge. Since we see the collection jar every day, it’s a great reminder to keep an eye out for Box Tops™ on product packages before we recycle them. Over this summer, we have collected 96 Box Tops™ which is $9.60 for our school (each one is worth 10 cents). How many have you collected over the summer?

It’s good to know how your school is using the Box Tops™ for Education labels to fund what they need. Our elementary school uses the Box Tops™ money to buy new library books. Do you know what your school is using their Box Tops™ money for? Every school is different because they receive the Box Tops™ money as cash and can choose how to best spend it. Even if your school does not collect Box Tops™, there is probably a school in your community that does. There are over 80,000 K-8 schools participating in this loyalty program. Learn more about collecting Box Tops™ for Education in my other post about it.

4 Savings Tips for Back To School

by Freebies4Mom on August 15, 2019 6:00 pm

4 Savings Tips for Back To SchoolIt’s exciting to get the kids ready to go back to school, but it’s also stressful to figure out how we’re going to buy everything without spending a lot of money. Pin these Back to School Savings Tips to find it quickly later!

1. Love Lists

Work with your kids to make a NEED LIST and a WANT LIST for back to school supplies and clothing. Do your kids NEED a new backpack or WANT a new backpack? Making a list will help the entire family focus on what is needed, and lessen the temptation to make impulse purchases on the store. After you make your lists, discuss what your budget is and how many of items on the “Want List” will fit into that budget. Your kids might think you’re crazy, but they’ll appreciate it later when they realize you’re teaching them good money management skills.

2. Clip Coupons

Clip coupons with your scissors from the Sunday newspaper, but also digitally using store loyalty cards and apps. I share printable and online coupons on my blog, but you’ll also find great coupons at your favorite store’s Facebook page. Loyalty cards I use on a regular basis are for Kroger, CVS, Kohl’s, Office Depot, and Lands’ End. My favorite apps that reward you for shopping include Ibotta (cash back rebates), Shopkick (earn points for scanning products) and Cartwheel (Target’s digital coupons).

3. Tackle Thrift

I’m always surprised by what I find at my Goodwill store – name brand ‘like new’ clothing, clothing with original tags on them, new school workbooks, learn to read books. It’s like a treasure hunt every time I go to a thrift store, but it’s also a good place to check for some of the items on your NEED LIST. Don’t feel constrained to shopping at your local thrift stores because you can also shop second-hand goods online at thredUP (for kids and women’s clothing) and eBay (for just about everything).

4. Make Money

A little extra money always comes in handy, especially when you’re buying supplies and clothing to get your kids ready to go back to school. While you’re buying new clothing think about what you should do with your old clothing including selling it at a local consignment shop, online consignment shop (like thredUP), having a garage sale or selling it locally by listing it on Craig’s List. What you can’t sell, you can donate and get a receipt to use for your taxes. If you need help tracking the value of your donations, take a look at the iDonatedIt app ($2.99).

Now I want to hear YOUR tips for saving on everything for back to school. Where are you shopping and how are you saving money? Please leave a comment below.
