It’s hard to believe that it’s time to start thinking about back to school. As a Mom who also works from home, I like to think of it as the most wonderful time of the year. Sure I love summer, but by August I’m grinning ear to ear as I glide through the Walmart aisles adding supplies to my cart. You all remember that commercial. I know you do. Haha!
If you have children in school you have probably heard about the Box Tops for Education program. Or you might even remember it from being a kid yourself. This program has been a great resource for us to give extra financial support back to the schools we love and attend. That means I always make sure to look for that Box Tops logo on products as I shop. The Box Tops are on so many of the everyday products I am buying anyway, so it’s an easy thing to do for your school!
Our school is so progressive and really focuses on those all important STEM schools which are so important, I love to do anything I can do to support them!
Earn Double Box Tops at Walmart
Right now through September 8th, you can earn double Box Tops exclusively at Walmart on hundreds of items. I’m so happy that Walmart partnered with Box Tops to offer this. Mine really added up! And it didn’t take long!
Box Tops Have Gone Digital
It used to be that when we were kids, and even until recently, you had to clip and collect the Box Tops as you finished up using a product. Ours were collected and kept in a drawer in our kitchen. But of course some surely slipped through the cracks. Ahhh money for schools going right through our fingertips!
Now that Box Tops for Education has gone digital I’ve been elated! It is so easy to download the free app, enter your school and information, and then just scan your receipt. In my first receipt scanned I earned my school $1.40 in mere seconds! It felt great knowing that nothing got left out and that we didn’t have to remember to clip the Box Tops.

The program was a great success and expanded nationwide in 1998. Through the Box Tops program, schools were earning cash and able to purchase much needed items such as computers, books and playground equipment. Since it’s start, American schools have earned over $913 million! Wow!
