Box Tops For Education

*I have been compensated by Box Tops For Education for this post; however, I am sharing my own thoughts. All opinions are my own.

    When I was growing up, I used to visit my aunt’s classroom whenever I had a day off from school. She was a Special Education teacher for twenty years and she loved taking me to her school and having me spend time with her students. It was during that time that I decided that I wanted to grow up and become a teacher. I fell in love with everything about teaching from sharpened pencils to writing on the blackboard.

    I have now been a teacher for the past eighteen years and, while I still love teaching as much as I did when I was a kid, I have realized that many schools are in need of valuable resources that are not always readily available due to budget constraints. As a result, we teachers will often supplement those materials that aren’t available from our own money. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to provide all of the supplies that my students need which is why I love the Box Tops For Education program.

    Over the years, I have taught at many schools that participated in the BTFE program and seen how many valuable resources the schools were able to receive due to all of the Box Tops that parents, students, and staff were able to collect. Today, it’s much easier to keep track of the Box Tops that you collect because gone are the days of having to clip them. Now, all you have to do is scan your store receipt using the Box Tops app to redeem your BTFE.

    This past weekend I was able to spend some time shopping while my son came out in a Sweet Sixteen for one of his friends. Naturally, I headed to Walmart to take advantage of the fact that General Mills, Kleenex® and Walmart are teaming up to offer a Buy 5 products, Get 50 Box Tops offer through the BTFE App! You can even jump on this offer by visiting!

  1. These are really good. It’s a great way to support schools and the community.

  2. It’s awesome that you have a BTFE program in your country. Such a unified effort involving the grocery items with good works. I love it!

  3. I love this! I always cut Box Tops for my children’s schools. It’s such an easy thing to do. I love that there is an app now.

  4. How awesome for them to be doing this! It seems like such a great way to support your school, especially when you can do it by just buying your normal shopping!

  5. Neely Moldovan says

    Now that my little one is starting school we are so excited to participate in this. Love that you are spreading the word.

  6. That’s so incredible that they still do Box Tops in the states. Its a great way to give back to local schools! They have a similar program here in Australia where you get coupons after your purchase. There will be boxes of all the local schools in the area and you can put your coupons in the box of your choosing. It’s such a great idea.

  7. I had no idea Box Tops was still around. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely support this.

  8. I can’t imagine how much money goes unclaimed because people either don’t know about this or don’t take the time to cut the Box Tops.

  9. We buy a lot of these products and will give the Box Tops to school. We love Box Tops on products.

  10. You know, not since I was in school have I given much thought to the Box Top program. Now that I have kids though, I think it’s time for me to start paying much more attention. Thank you for this!

  11. We have always saved our Box Tops! Even when our schools haven’t saved them, we give them to someone whose school does!

  12. Emma Riley says

    I have never heard of this and thank you for sharing this with us. Now we are able to know this and by this small way we are able to help the school and the community.

  13. What a great way to support the community! Love that is has healthy options!

  14. What!!! I never knew about this app. This is so awesome! I am always trying to remember to clip those boxtops that I have an overflowing trash problem because I keep telling myself I’m going to get to them. What a great idea and a time saver too!

  15. Terri Beavers says

    My kids are grown now but I still round up box tops in our neighborhood to help support our local schools. I have an envelope at the post office people put them in. Your post just reminded me it’s back to school time and I need to get back to work on getting everyone active again.

  16. Oh, wow! I did not know about this! It’s such an awesome way to give back to schools.

  17. Love You Wedding says

    We love patronizing products that help us help our local schools. Box Tops for Education is a great way to do that. I can’t believe it is back to school season again, so we’re going to be collecting as much box tops as we can and remind friends and family to do the same.

  18. My Teen Guide says

    I think our local school needs more funding for healthier lunches. Our school also needs to upgrade the library. I am going to make this as my focus and start collecting Box Tops for Education!

  19. Box Tops are an amazing tool that helps our local schools. I always collect them.

  20. We love Box Tops! Every year my girls collect them to see who can get the most.

  21. Ah, I remember collecting all of these for my daughter’s school. There are some great products out there to buy you can support your schools with.

  22. This is awesome. The idea of funding school needs through Box Tops Education is very nice.

  23. Princess Quinn says

    I love that there are promotions like this. You can easily give back just by buying stuff.
