How To Get Started Clipping and Collecting Box Tops To Raise Money For Schools?
You can find Box Tops on most Reynolds Kitchens™ products like Parchment Paper, Oven Bags, Slow Cooker Liners and Bakeware Pans. Reynolds makes two products I simply could not live without. Their Slow Cooker Liners and their Parchment Paper. I do not have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. One kitchen job I am always happy to give up is clean up duty. The reason I love the following Reynolds products is they make my life so much easier. There is NO MESS to clean up when using Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners and Parchment Paper.
Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners
I am a big slow cooker fan. Meals are easy to prepare in crock-pots, and you can keep them warm for whenever your busy family is ready to eat. My blog, Recipes For Our Daily Bread, is all about giving moms easy recipe ideas. I know moms have little time to spend in the kitchen with kids in school, homework, sports, band practice, and so many other activities that keep you busy.
In the picture below, I am using a Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner while making my easy crock-pot Mexican chicken. I love this recipe. This chicken can be used all during the week in tacos, burritos, taco salad, Mexican casserole and so many other delicious dishes.
Reynolds Parchment Paper
Baking Cookies Using Parchment Paper
Once you discover how parchment paper makes clean up so much easier, you will use it all the time. One of my favorite things to do with my kids is baking cookies. I make huge batches of cookies and drop the dough using an ice cream scoop on several baking sheets lined with parchment paper. After making the cookies, I bake one sheet of cookies. Cookies bake perfectly on the parchment paper, and you have nothing to clean up.
Freezing Cookies Using Parchment Paper
The other baking pans full of cookie dough I place in the freezer. Once the cookie dough is frozen, I place the cookies into a freezer bag to bake to enjoy anytime. The frozen cookies come off the pan easy using parchment paper. By baking large batches and freezing them, you will always have cookies and milk to share with your kids when they get home from school.
You can also find Box Tops on Hefty Trash Bags, Hefty Foam Plates, and Hefty Cups—all things I need to make life easier during the busy school year! Below are a few of my favorite Hefty products that have box tops.
Hefty Hot/Cold Cups
Hefty On-The-Go Hot Cups
If you are like me, You cannot leave the house in the mornings without a cup of coffee. Hefty cups make it so easy to take your coffee with you. The bonus is you do not have to worry about keeping up with the cup or cleaning it. The lids make it perfect for your kids to take cold or hot drinks in the car too. If you are in a big hurry in the mornings, these cups are fantastic for keeping oatmeal warm while your kids eat it in the car. I have found many uses for these cups over the years besides coffee or tea.
Hefty Trash Bags
You can find Box Tops on another product I use daily, Hefty trash bags. With having a large family, we have a BIG trash can. In fact in is a 30-gallon trash can which stays in our laundry room. See my trash can below. Hefty 30-gallon trash bags fit snug and perfectly inside my trash can. They are in my opinion as tough and durable as they claim.
An Easy Way to Collect Box Tops To Raise Money For Schools
Once you cut the Box Tops off your favorite products, you need a good way to keep up with them. My daughter, Diana, is the crafty artist in the family. She decorated this Box Tops box for us that we can drop the Box Tops into after we clip them off the products. If you are looking for the perfect size box to use to collect your Box Tops, try using a Hefty Trash Bag box with 56 – 30-gallon bags. The box is a great size for Box Tops. You can see the Hefty Trash Bag box that Diana decorated in the picture below. This box sits nicely on the counter or in the center of your table. This way you will never forget to clip and save your box tops.
Have your child decorate a Box Top Box to take to your work. Encourage your co-workers to drop their box tops in the box.
How do schools get paid for Box Tops?
It is no secret that American education system needs money. Each year schools are in need of everything from computers to paper. Schools get cash, 10 cents, for every box top collected. The best part is each school can spend the money however they would like to spend it.
