My little boy will be starting kindergarten this September! I can’t even, guys! Where has the time flown? Stocking up on school supplies and items for around the house, as well, is made easier with the ability to earn cash for your child’s school via Box Tops. I fondly remember collecting Box Tops in junior high/high school. It became like a game searching for products with Box Tops to help make our school better. Nothing better than a little school spirit! What if I told you that there a few products where you can earn DOUBLE Box Tops?! 

My son is super excited to be starting school in the fall, even though he went to preschool and pre-kindergarten. He has been reading his school supplies list over and over again checking off whatever we gather. We have been shopping Walmart’s excellent low prices for everything he will need while also helping our schools in the process. When flying through the aisles of Walmart with my son in preparation for back-to-school, I came across these exciting 4 products with double Box Tops: 

  • Kleenex® Trusted Care* 3 Bundle Pack
  • Kleenex® Trusted Care* 4 Bundle Pack
  • Scott® Tissue 20 Roll Pack
  • Viva® Vantage® 6 Big Rolls

Back-to-school is a time to organize and learn, so collecting Box Tops inspired me to create a DIY Back-to-school ruler framed memo board. This is a great way to keep all things school in one place. All of these supplies can be found at Walmart, too, so stock up on these products to streamline the school year for yourselves and your kiddos. Hint: You can also keep all the DOUBLE Box Tops you earn from Kleenex Facial tissue on the memo board! 

DIY Back-to-School Ruler Framed Memo Board

Step 1: Gather supplies.

  • 12″ x 12″ cork board
  • 4 rulers
  • Sticky notes
  • Calculator
  • Writing utensils
  • Pushpins
  • Hot glue gun and refills

Step 2: Hot glue the rulers onto the border of the cork board. You can choose to do it evenly or be a little “geometric” with it.

Step 3: Hot glue the calculator onto left bottom half of memo board or wherever you see fit.

Step 4: Arrange the sticky note pads and hot glue the backing to the memo board. 

Step 5: Place extra pushpins into the memo board for future use.

Step 6: Zig zag a few pushpins to hold up writing utensils.

Step 7: Admire your board, complete all the tasks, and prepare for a great year ahead!

How will you help your school this year in addition to Box Tops?
