Thanks to General Mills, the maker of Totino's, and MyBlogSpark for providing me with information and a great giveaway to offer my readers!
School is back in session (Hallalujah!) and it is time to start sending in all of those Box Tops for Education that you've been collecting all summer. I don't know if you have noticed, but there are some new products that are carrying the Box Tops logo on them... including Totino's!
Now through September 15, Totino's is offering two of those pink, clipable money makers for your school on every Totino's product. I admit, I tend to buy BTFE products and seeing double the money for schools on those packages makes me more likely to buy them over another brand! Also worth mentioning is Totino's "Make School a Better Place" sweepstakes, where Totino's is giving 10,000 Bonus Box Tops, school supplies and free Totino's snacks to 8 lucky schools.
Will your school be one of the lucky 8? You can enter daily by going here and either signing in or joining the BTFE site if you aren't already a member.
Now, on to the GIVEAWAY. General Mills and MyBlogSpark have generously allowed me a giveaway for my readers. Want to win a back pack and some must-have school supplies? I know you do!Take a look at that! There's a gray and black back pack, a package of hi-liters ( a BTFE on package), Two large glue sticks, an Avery Silhouette Flexible folder (has a BTFE on spine!), a flexible calculator, a coupon good for 1 box of any flavor/variety of Totino's Crisp Party Pizza, a coupon good for one free box any flavor of 15 ct. Totino's rolls snacks and a 25 Bonus BTFE certificate worth $2.50 for your child's school.
This prize pack is pretty sweet! The back pack would be great for a boy, though I foresee me using it as an adult back pack for the next time we hit an amusement park. The school supplies are all brand name, except for the calculator. I might have to fight my 9 year old to retain ownership of it! I definitely can use glue sticks around the house as I have been using a lot of them while teaching my son to read using Stepping Stones Together's program.
