Box Tops and a $25 Walmart gift card giveaway!

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard grumblings about school budgets. Locally, school budgets have been cut and cut -- and from what I've read, that's the case across the country. 

So, schools and PTOs are doing all they can to supplement those budgets. Sure, some of that means parents (like me!) are being called upon to send in more and more classroom supplies. But another thing most schools do is participate in the Box Tops for Education program. Right now, Walmart is partnering with the program to offer several products that have bonus Box Tops -- they have over 100 products that allow you to earn 4 Box Tops with your purchase. That means more money for your school!

Not familiar with the Box Tops for Education program? You can learn more about it HERE

I was invited to learn more about this program by shopping for some extra Box Top products at Walmart. I was sent a $25 gift card and stocked up on Honey Nut Cheerios and Old El Paso taco shells -- both gave me 4 Box Tops for my school! In addition, I visited the Earn More For My School site where I was able to sign up and earn even more extra Box Tops!

I'm turning into a Box Tops addict!

Do you save Box Tops for your school? Would you like to win a $25 Walmart gift card so you can go Box Tops crazy and earn even more?

Make money shopping online

If you shop online and you haven't yet signed up for eBates, you really should! eBates is a program that pays you for making online purchases. Depending on the store, you can earn anywhere from 2% to 20% of your total order back.

Right now, for example, if you place an Amazon order through eBates, you'll get 3% back. J.Crew is 6%, Target is 4%, and Road Runner Sports is 8%. Those are only a small sample of the stores available on eBates.

It is easy to sign up and easy to shop through the site.

I've been shopping through eBates for a while now and it is great to open my mailbox and find a check inside -- no strings attached.

So, if you shop online a lot, do check out eBates!
