Super Deals yield Box Tops for Education

Hey, it's a guest post!

Hi, folks, Lisa's husband, Tom, here with a simple request...

I went shopping with Lisa for all the Kroger deals from her earlier post and had a great time. I did the register runs, while Lisa worked her coupon magic!

Anyway, a lot of the items yield these little beauties -

I collect these for one purpose - to support my students at my school. I work at Henry County Middle School in McDonough, GA. HCMS is a Title 1 school struggling to better serve our students with a steadily shrinking budget. I coach the FIRST Lego League team as part of the Technology Club that I sponsor. This year was our first season and, in our first four months of existence, we went to the second level of competition and traveled to the Super Qualifier Competition in Warner Robins, GA. We didn't make it to the state finals, but I'm extremely proud of my team and there is a lot of potential with the team.

So here's my request to all you humble readers - if you purchase products with the Box Tops for Education and don't collect them for your kids or local school, would you collect them for my students? If you would like to help out a great group of kids explore the wonders of science and mathematics, please send them my way.

I found you via Frugal Hacker.....

My husband and I have started a website called I'm creating a blog wall, full of useful blogs that have a frugal christian perspective! We have lots of blogs that are already on the wall like deal seeking mom, attention target shoppers, and many more.

If you're interested in placing your button on our wall, let me know!!

All we ask is that you place a link to our site in your links area.

Here is the blogwall url:

We also have created a coupon database with YUI technology (LoL I don't know what that means but my husband raves that it's the best thing since sliced bread lol)

If you have any questions please shot me an email!
