    eri815 - which town is closest to you and I will see if I know a school that participates.

  • eri815 Jan 9, 2011

    I'd asked all the parent's at church who have kids in school, but none of their schools participate. I'll keep asking around :)

  • LAXMom12 Jan 9, 2011

    eri815 - You will find most all schools participate in box tops since it is free money. You can start with the school nearest you.

  • eri815 Jan 8, 2011

    do you have any leads on schools collecting box tops? I'm sure that there are others like me who don't have kids in school but would be glad to save them for a good cause :)

    Hi! I just went to FL this morning to take advantage of some of their specials at the Clayton one and the Kraft cheese was not BOGO it was B2G1 and this was on all shredded and chunk. I thought the Lowes deal was better on the cheese. Also, the Rotel cans all flavors were 10/10 and with the coupon in Jan. All You you can buy 3 and get 1 Free. I also used a coupon that I had for Campbell's soup for buy 4 get $1 off, I think it was in Jan. All You as well. Hope this helps. Now I will hit Lowes Foods and back to Harris Teeter. Thanks for all you do Faye!

    DOn't forget to scan your card at the coupon machine on the way in! Last night I stopped by FL (on the way back from HT) to get some lunch meat (HT is too expensive). I scanned my card and got a coupon for $5 off 3 packs of Hillshire Farm lunch Meat, ended up paying $6 for 3. Also got a HUGE top round roast for $8 and a chicken fryer for $3. Great meal deals!
