Does the school have a chart they track to see who is in the lead? I can't believe people sell those on ebay, LOL, but I guess I shop ebay for coupons! I have some, but maybe only 25. I get most of mine from totinos pizzas and kleenex boxes. I'll be more than happy to send them to you. If anyone else mails you any, just be sure they are flat in the envelope or else the post office will want extra postage for a fat envelope.

They are on a ton of things: some feminine hygiene products, toilet paper (not sure what brand?), yoplait kids yogurt, some betty crocker mix products, some cereals (mostly general mills I think), cereal bars boxes, fruit snacks, refrigerated cookie dough (pillsbury), kleenex brand tissues, etc. I am amazed at how many we collect. Our kids' school collects them 2x a year & we typically have about 100 or so for each of our kids to take in. I'd share some but our kids get prizes for taking them to school.

OMG!! This must be the same lady I saw last weekend at my Wal-mart stealing all the coupons off the boxes of speghetti noodles!! She was just standing there peeling every coupon off box after box and returning the boxes to the shelf.....I just walked away shaking my head wondering WTH? is wrong with people? If you have to resort to basically stealing to save 50cents then you definately have some issues!!

Oh, the original reason for this post was to tell you to PM me your address I have some boxtops for you.... and I didn't steal them!! LOL!.....I asked my dcp's if they had any and they brought me some...

ROFL at the spaghetti noodle coupon thief.

I will confess, I peel a coupon off a small bag of chex mix to use on a bigger bag of chex mix!!! But I didn't take ALL the coupons! lol

Thanks Blackcat!!! I appreciate it!

Default boxtops for education

I save the boxtops for education - don't know why as my sons are all grown but I would be happy to mail them to the first person to respond to this - just send your mailing address to me or your schools address - whatever you prefer. themarinosnj@comcast.net
