I feel like the older my kids get, the more the memories of my childhood aligns with theirs. I remember being so excited gearing up for the new school year. It was exciting to pick all the school supplies I thought were cool and to grab all my favorite snacks that had the Box Tops on them! I remember the feeling I got after every back-to-school shopping trip when I would come home and organize all my things for hours on end. Now that E and Mills are in that stage, it makes me feel some type of way. I can’t help but get that same feeling I got when I was a kid, seeing them so excited and focused and really watching them be their true selves. It sure is something special!
There was always that feeling of nervousness and not really knowing what to expect on your first day of school. There was also that feeling of excitement to make new friends, meet your new teacher, and use your new school things. I remember I would always make my mom buy me the brands that supported Box Tops for Education program, because it felt good to make my teachers happy when I brought them in. It’s kinda like a teacher’s pet type of thing (I was one, guilty! lol). But now that I’m a mama, I really understand the whole concept of what the Box Tops for Education program is for.
When you realize what a big difference such a little gesture can do for our children and our school systems, it’s a no brainer to collect Box Tops. Box Tops can help inspire imagination in so many ways! I love to imagine what our Box Tops money is going to be used for: a new gym, playground equipment, classroom items, books. It makes me so happy to think about all of the amazing possibilities! One thing that I try to teach the kids is that our teachers and everyone in the school systems are true heroes. We appreciate them, and we respect them and their hard work to teach all the children! We can never do enough for them, but now that the Box Top program is officially going digital, this will make our jobs as parents and professional Box Top collectors, a whole lot easier!
We love to stock up on all of our favorite back to school snacks at Costco! Right now Costco is offering 10 Box Tops on every participating product! PLUS 5,000 members will win an additional 100 Box Tops. Talk about a sweet deal to get you ready for back to school season!
I personally can’t wait to start using and collecting Box Tops digitally! Saves us the hassle of clipping, storing, and delivering all of our Box Tops. I’m hoping this will get more people on board to start using Box Tops for their local teachers and schools, as well! Let’s kick off our 2019-2020 school year with a BANG!!! Who’s with me?
