I’m a big supporter of Boxtops for Education because I feel it’s a great way to earn money for your favorite schools.

Since 1996,  schools have earned more than $300 million through Box Tops for Education and have used that cash to purchase items such as computers, library books, art supplies, and playground equipment. Schools can earn up to $80,000 per year, to spend on anything they choose, by clipping Box Tops coupons from hundreds of products, shopping online through the Box Tops Marketplace and Reading RoomSM, and purchasing items from My Class Essentials registries.

I recently found out that one of our favorite frozen pizza brands – Totino’s – has recently joined this great program and we’re thrilled because we always have Totino’s in our freezer. Our family loves Totino’s Party Pizza and Pizza Rolls because it’s perfect for kids meals or snacks. You just pop them into the oven and in about 10 minutes you’ll get a delicious meal for your family.

My girls love the because the slices are not bulky or hard to eat. The smaller portions are perfect for their tiny hands and mouths. It’s actually the only brand of pizza that Kiana will eat.

I’ve also found that the Pizza Rolls are a perfect alternative to sandwiches when the kids go on field trips. Once they’re cooked, I can just put some into a container or baggie and they’re all set to go. The kids love that the rolls are bite-sized and can be eaten with their fingers. It makes this snack a very easy and convenient choice for after school.

So the next time you’re at the grocery store, don’t forget to stock up on Totino’s Party Pizza and Totino’s Pizza Rolls. Not only will your family get a delicious snack but you’ll also be able to help out your child’s school. Definitely a win-win situation!

    We’ve learned to make checklists for everything from what we need to pack (lunches, books, uniforms) to what we need to do in morning (make bed, brush teeth, eat etc) It keeps us from forgetting things and has made it so much smoother

  55. MrsVeeVee says:

    I’m not into the school frenzy yet as my son is not yet in school. However, if he was, I would think the bext tip would be to be organized. I would make sure everything is packed and checked the night before so there’s no doubt in the morning that things are done.

    My tip is to get the kids gradually back to a schedule by waking up earlier, going to bed earlier, less TV, and even mini homework assignments reading and math so they don’t forget over the summer
