Last year, we introduced Michael to Box Tops for Education with a bake sale full of easy DIY decorations and a silent auction. And from there, he started leaving any empty packages I might have missed on the counter so I could remove the Box Top before pitching them, if he didn’t cut it out himself. He knew that throwing away a Box Top was like throwing away his allowance, one dime at a time.
This year, to celebrate my baby (who is no longer a baby) going to kindergarten, we had a mini back to school party! And I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t one of my secret weapons in the mission to keep him focused on how awesome his new school will be, and less on not going to the same school as all of his friends from Montessori.

Yeah… about that game… I found myself at Walmart, too. Backpack- check. School supplies- check. Paper products because my husband used the last roll of Viva and didn’t tell me- check. I even scored double Box Tops. Not because I know kids have Box Top competitions or anything. And definitely not because I enjoy winning said competitions.
Not that I do that…
