3 Ways to Shop Walmart and Earn Money For Your School!

Even though we homeschool, we still collect BoxTops for Education, sponsored by General Mills.  Several of our homeschool programs (including our volleyball team) collect them to help defray the costs of supplies, facilities, and travel.  Since it's so easy to clip the BoxTops for Education from the items we buy everyday, my kids have been trained to "spot" them, clip them, and put them in our special collection jar.

Walmart has helped make it easy to earn even more of these neat little perks with their Facebook app; just visit and click -- you'll get the chance to sign up for Earn More For Your School (a special program from Walmart that lets you know about new savings opportunities and score 2 Boxtops for registering!)

They will also share on the website how you can earn faster by buying specially-marked products with 4 BoxTops each!

Here are the items my family recently bought at Walmart to help jump-start our back-to-school meal planning.  (We do a lot of taco dinners during the fall, and MultiGrain Cheerios are a breakfast option my whole family loves.)

Since we buy these products anyway, having a BoxTop on them is a simple and effortless way to get more money for our volleyball team.  (And we all know that schools and programs need all the help they can get in this economy.)

This is just one way your family can save by shopping at Walmart; you can also score cash for your school by participating in these two programs:

Do you buy products that help support your local school?  I'd love to hear about which programs you are participating in and whether you shop at Walmart!
