~~CLOSED~~Box Tops for Education & A $25 WalMart Gift Card Giveaway!

Woo Hoo! The beginning of the school year is right around the corner! In addition to school shopping, getting used to a new schedule, and everything else you have to do at this time of year, it's also a great time to start thinking about how to support your children's education.


The Box Tops for Education is an easy solution & this year WalMart is making it even easier!


From Aug. 3 – Aug. 31, head over to your local Walmart to find 4 Box Tops on participating General Mills products and earn more cash for the participating school of your choice. As your one-stop destination for all your needs this back-to-school season, Walmart is helping you save more and earn more with the Box Tops for Education brands you love.

With over 20 great brands and more than 40 products participating, it's super easy to get Box Tops for your school. Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal, Pillsbury Toaster Strudel pastries, Trix Yogurt, Hamburger Helper skillet meals, Totino’s Pizza Rolls snacks, Nature Valley Granola Bars, Betty Crocker Fruit Roll-Ups snacks, even products from Kleenex, Ziploc, and Hefty too!

How did I do? Well, with a $25 gift card & a few coupons, I actually made out pretty good. I ended up with 23 Box Tops! Again I say, Woo Hoo! Some of them were double Box Tops, so, double woo hoo!

So, would you like to win a $25 WalMart gift card? Of course you would! Thanks to General Mills & MyBlogSpark, one of you have an opportunity to do just that!
