Box Tops for Education at Target {$25 Gift Card and Prize Package Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, CindyWindy2003!}

I mentioned it already, but I truly am the one who is nervous about Big Sister E's first day of school this year. I was worried about her starting off at preschool for the first time last September, but now, with the beginning of yet another year, I can't help but fret about how it will go for her. That's what moms do, right?

However, as kids of all ages prepare to head back to school this fall, it is important to remember to not only support them but their schools and education by collecting Box Tops. There has already been over $300 million raised and turned into much-needed supplies for over 90,000 schools across the country since 1996 - wow!

General Mills sent over a prize pack of all sorts of goodies that are a part of the Box Tops for Education program that the family could enjoy:

Both Big Sister E and Little Sister B crowded around as item after item came out of this box and they clamored to get a taste of a few of them. Awaiting us, we found:
  • $25 Target gift card
  • 25 Bonus Box Tops
  • Avery Binder
  • Betty Crocker Fruit Gushers Variety Pack
  • Hamburger Helper Cheeseburger Macaroni
  • Hefty CinchSak Trash Bags
  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Juicy Juice 8-Pack Juice Boxes
  • Nature Valley Granola Bars
  • Welch's Concord Grape Jelly
Big Sister E went straight for the Juicy Juice and Little Sister B, in her never-ending quest for "Cookies! Cookies!" was happy with sharing a granola bar with her sister.

Shh, don't tell them that Mommy has eaten all but one pack of the Fruit Gushers already. Yum!

Target has made it even easier to collect Box Tops for Education while you're already there shopping for back-to-school items for your children. From August 15 - 28, you will receive double Bonus Box Tops instantly when you buy five or more participating General Mills, Avery, Hefty, Juicy Juice and Welch's Box Tops for Education products and earn even more for the participating school of your choice.

With so many products to choose from, your family's favorites are sure to be on the list! You can also visit GrocerySavvy.com for more details and great back to school savings offers. Who doesn't like a great deal?

Plus, to celebrate this great promotion at Target, General Mills wants to make sure one person can also shop for a good cause, because...

One lucky person will win a Box Tops for Education Prize Pack
including a $25 Target gift card!
