Have Fun Saving Box Tops with a Mason Jar Bank

Does your family save Box Tops? If not, you should! It’s fun and easy to do, and is a great way to help earn money for your kid’s school, or even your local neighborhood school of you don’t have kids. By turning in Box Tops to your kid’s school, those schools are eligible to receive donations from General Mills®. They can then use those funds for things they need to help your kids learn.

This year I wanted to make saving Box Tops something fun. So I made this quick and easy savings bank for Box Tops out of a mason jar. It’s super simple, just use a butter knife or a pair of scissors to make a wide slit in the top. You can also decorate it however you like. I chose to keep ours pretty simple.

We just turned in our stash of Box Tops to the school that we saved over the past few months, and just started over this past week. We got lots of Bot Tops as we did our back to school shopping last week. We found lots cereals, snacks and treats that we love from General Mills with Box Tops.

Lots of those items had 4 Bonus Box Tops! So instead of 1 Box Top per item, it was 5!

Pizza rolls are a special treat at our house. But since these also had the bonus box tops, I said yes!

The products we picked up at Walmart all had 4 bonus box tops! This offer is only available at Walmart though. On this trip, I even let Julien get Cocoa Puffs. He’s so excited!
