Ah back to school – suddenly the snacks we munched on all summer long are no longer acceptable. I also found we are now going through snacks at an alarming rate. I’m not sure HOW that is possible since the kids are gone for several hours during the day, but the snacks keep disappearing.
Back to school also means it’s time to start fundraising for the school year. Our school asks us to save Box Tops for them, and it’s pretty easy for us to do, because Box Tops are on a lot of our favorite snacks. Box Tops 4 Education has partnered with Sam’s Club to really give you a lot more bang for your box, er buck.
More about that later.
First, we need to address the snack crisis. To avoid the panicked cries of “Mommy! I’m hungry!” I set up a drawer in our kitchen that’s easy for the kids to get to that has snacks they can pack in their lunches, or enjoy after school or on the weekends. It’s at their height, and everything is divided and easy for them to see. It’s also easy for ME to see when things are running low so I can restock as needed.
I include an assortment of snacks, from Fruit Roll Ups, individual serving size bags of Chex Mix and Peanut Butter bars for after school (since we don’t take nuts to school as a rule) There’s something for everyone, and all of our favorite snacks have Box Tops to clip.
So what do we do with all of our Box Tops from our snacks? I tried a plastic sandwich bag – and I failed miserable. Like, it was nearly full and who knows what happened to it. Very sad. Now we have a magnetic spice container we stick to our refrigerator. The little slot that the spices come out of? It’s the perfect size for Box Tops!
