Remember that it’s never too early to start the school year clipping Box Tops 4 Education! You can collect all year long as a matter of fact. This summer marked the first full summer that the cellist and I collected with purpose. I know, I know, I’ve been the coordinator since 2004, but there is definitely something about going to National Box Tops University that really sets a fire under someone.
As a matter of fact, this summer our collection efforts with the school AND local communities netted us 1700 box tops! Pretty good if I do say so myself. Of course in summers of the future I would LOVE to see that number triple or quadruple.
As we get ready for our first box tops clipping party at the school, I do encourage you to sign on to the website and check out some of the promotions that they have going on currently. There are several daily contests that you can enter, and if you’re NOT signed up for the program, you can earn 5 eBoxTops just for doing so.
Also remember that the site is great for coupons for box tops specific products and even recipes. What more could you ask for?
Natasha is one sixth of the Houseful Of Nicholes. Born and raised in Chicago, she is tourist of her own city. She is married to her high school sweetheart and a stay at home mom of four inquisitive children - ages 11(the cellist), 3(ladybug), and 10 month old twins (Lil Miss & Sir Twizzler). While most seem to think that she effortlessly mothers and spouses on a day to day basis, she keeps it together from prayer and the desire to give her children the life that children should have. Her house can always be expected to be full of laughter, food, cloth diapers and maybe a little bit of homemade play-dough. She began blogging at Houseful Of Nicholes when she and her husband found out that their third child was indeed their third AND fourth child. Given the charge of transforming their house from one of four to that of six, she began researching everything to try and make her home life easier and her footprint on this earth a little bit better.
Blogging has led her into the wonderful world of sewing, canning, reading (again) and creating. Her home life may be a bit busy, but that's just the way that she likes it.You can follow her tweets @HFofNicholes or her online life at www.housefulofnicholes.com
