Yeah Me!

I just wanted to write about the wonderful deal I got for our school yesterday. I don't know if any of you are familiar with Box tops but they are a wonderful and easy source of money for your childrens school. You get ten cents for everyone you collect. I know that that doesn't sound like much but let me tell you about my shopping trip yesterday. It was just the usual trip to the super Wal-Mart for groceries. I didn't buy anything unusual, just the normal stuff. So when I got home I started counting the Box Tops as I put everything away. At this time of year (back to school) they often put bonus Box Tops on items, so I was on the lookout for products with extras. When I was all done I had 60 Box Tops! That's $6.00 of free money for our school. It would have just been recycling. Then K-mart was running a promo for additional 70 Box Tops if you purchased 10 products with Box Tops. So that was an additional $7.00. I collected $13.00 for our school just grocery shopping yesterday. I know it might not sound like a lot but if you multipy it by all the kids in our school it could add up to close to $5000.00. If you would like more information check out the website The site has lots of great recipes, coupons and lists all the products you can find Box Tops on. Check it out. It's like throwing away money if you don't save them. You probably know someone who collects them to give them too, if not email me and send them to our school. Thanks! Have a great afternoon.

Hi I am new to this whole blogging thing. I don't really know what to do with this or what to write. I am a stay at home mom of three. One boy who is growing up too fast and two girls. My oldest daughter started first grade today. It was strange not to have her around today. My son is in the 5 th grade. Our youngest was very lost without them today. I was canning peaches and pears so she had no one to play with. She took her nap with out any fuss. It was like she knew that when she got up she would have her playmates back. I guess I will write more about this later. Right now I have to get dinner ready because they have soccer practice in an hour. Thanks for looking.
