I have a confession to make. Last year, my son’s school did a really fun game to get the kids to participate in bringing in Box Tops for Education. My son loves participating in things like that, and I love helping out all of the amazing teachers at his school. Because schools earn $.10 for every box top received, which they can use to buy whatever they need, saving (and turning in) Box Tops for Education is a great way to support the schools!
So I diligently cut and saved every box top from some of our favorite General Mills products, and started stashing them away in the kitchen “junk drawer”. The only problem was that once they entered the junk drawer, they NEVER CAME BACK OUT AGAIN (que mysterious music).
Now it’s a new school year, with a new teacher who doesn’t know about my box top misdeeds! I still have a junk drawer full of box tops, and a new chance to prove myself as an organized mom who cares about the school and her child’s education.
I have the “caring” part down (my child’s education really is a priority to me). But I needed to put in a little work to get the organized part down. So I got to work!…
