Box Tops for Education "Top This" Sweepstakes, Giveaway and Review

We have been clipping and cutting Box Tops since the program launched nationwide in the late 1990's. I remember thinking, "How will $0.10 help our schools?" I'm sure you've wondered the same thing. Is it really worth the effort? Well, let me put it this way:

According the the
Box Tops for Education website, "Box Tops has helped America's schools earn over $250 million in the past 12 years."

So, yes . . . it is well-worth the minimal effort! I have four boys, in four different schools. We had collected Box Tops all year last year, and were able to provide each school with $25 worth of Box Tops.

Say there are, on average, 25 students in each classroom. If each student collects $25 worth of Box Tops, then (25 students X $25) would equal $625 per classroom.

Pillsbury Toaster Strudels are a huge hit in my house. Mornings are extremely chaotic, with each of my boys leaving at different times (6:20, 6:45, 7:45, 8:10). Cooking a huge breakfast is just not an option.

This is where Pillsbury Toaster Strudels save the day! Each of my children can choose their own flavors, and decorate their strudel their own way.

Totino's Pizza Rolls are the perfect after school snack, and my boys absolutely adore them! These bite-sized pizza pillows are easy to prepare. Instant pizza . . . just add microwave.

There's nothing like warm pizza to soothe those cranky hunger monsters! Not to mention, it keeps my crew satisfied until dinner is ready.

The wonderful people at My Blog Spark have gifted us with this HUGE "Top This" prize package.
In addition, they also have been so gracious to offer one of my readers a "Top This" prize
package, which includes everything in the image below:

Please note that the winner will be receiving VIP coupons for one FREE Pillsbury Toaster Strudel and one FREE Totino's Pizza Rolls, and not the actual product. Redeem at your local grocer.
