So I remember being a kid and collecting as many Box Tops for Education that I could. I’d collect them all and usually a few times a year would take them in to donate to my school. It was the easiest, most simple way for my mom to help support the school I went to even though we were very much a low income family. It worked because she was buying all these things anyway during grocery trips, so why not clip and save the Box Tops and give back to the school while we were at it?
Box Tops for Education has been around since the mid 90’s and has become the simplest way for local schools to earn CASH for themselves. In 1996 General Mills on-boarded this project and is such an easy way to involve students and parents alike to earn money for their school. The best part is because of the Box Top program, America’s schools have earned over $868 million dollars (according to www.boxtopsforeducation.com). They have made it even easier than before because now you can find Box Tops on hundreds of products throughout the grocery store and online.
Now that we have officially entered into the school age phase (even more so next year when Kaiden starts Kindergarten…. queue the tears!), I found another way for us to get involved as a family to collect Box Tops and help give back to the school with our regular grocery shopping. Not only is collecting box tops easier than ever now that they have expanded them beyond just food items, but now you can earn even more cash to help your school get what it needs through the Box Tops for Education Bonus App. You can turn your everyday receipts into cash for your school.
It’s free and as easy as 1-2-3. Here’s how it works:
- Buy: Find offers. Buy Products.
- Scan: Scan your receipt.
- Earn: Watch earnings stack up.
That’s it! You earn Bonus Box Tops in the Box Tops Bonus App in combination with the on-pack Box Tops clips and any other coupon, discount, store program or promotion.
You can download the app here:
Apple iTunes: http://cbi.as/a1ftv

Here are some of the regular Box Tops we save from items we purchase at Walmart.
A few of our favorites are Annies Cheddar Bunnies (baby C LOVES these!), Yoplait Harvest Peach yogurt, Mott’s Fruit Snacks, Pillsbury Toaster Strudels (easy breakfast for the boys!) and Honey Nut Cheerios (my childhood favorite!).
Right now at Walmart, you can buy 5 participating items, scan your receipt into the Box Tops app and earn 50 BONUS BOX TOPS! (this offer is good through 1/31/2018 — valid only with participating items at Walmart. Go here for more info>>> https://wm6.walmart.com/boxtops)
I wanted to share a fun way we have started to collect our Box Tops. I made this with a few things I already had in our craft box, but if you need to buy some materials the dollar store should have everything you need for less than $5! Check it out below!
Box Tops for Education Monster Collection Bin
Here are some of the regular Box Tops we save from items we purchase at Walmart. They’re grocery items we eat on the regular, so we simply save the Box Tops from those!
What you’ll need:
- a small cereal storage container
- stick on foam letters
- googly eyes
- glue or tape
- permanent marker
First you’ll want to find all your foam letters to spell out “FEED ME”. Stick those on your container.
Next, I took some glue and put the googly eyes on the top of the pour spout to create the effect of a face on it.
Lastly, I took a permanent marker and drew a happy monster mouth on the pour spout side of the container.
And that’s it! Make sure you cut and save all your Box Tops for your school. Your children’s education is directly benefited by donating them to your school. This creative little bin has been a great reminder to SAVE them and it’s helped the boys to remind me to cut them out and let them feed the Box Tops Monster!
