Box Tops University for learning and earning

Are you clipping Box Tops?  Box Tops for Education!  When you clip and save Box Tops and turn them into your local school, the school earns CASH.  Cash to spend on new equipment, materials, field trips, or perhaps a new computers.

Yesterday I attended Box Tops for Education University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Wow! What a great event. This day is for school coordinators. The meeting room was filled with Moms and even Dads who are working hard to support their school.

Box Tops University is a powerhouse of information. Coordinators are given informational papers, and nice promotional goodies to take home.  The day is full of instructions, engaging conversations, and friendship.   It's a day of learning and a day of saying thank you for being a coordinator.

Your school coordinator has resources available to them to help run their program smoothly. It is not as simple as throwing a handful of Box Tops in an envelope and sending them off to the counters in Minnesota. There are webinars and online tools to help promote the program at schools.

Schools in America earned over $445 million with Box Tops For Education since 1996 when the program began. In 2011 schools earned over $67 Million. Schools can earn up to $60,000 per year to spend on what they decide.

Where to find Box Tops and earn cash for your school:

As soon as you clip Box Tops remember to put it in a collection envelope or bag so when the school sends you a note that it is collection time you will have yours ready to send into school. They do have expiration dates so be sure to send them into school. Each Box Tops is worth 10 cents for the school. I keep a Ziploc brand bag on the refrigerator so any family member can clip and save the Box Tops.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
