Congratulations to Amanda!

Thanks for entering everyone. I look forward to holding my next giveaway!

__________________________________________________________________

Yep, it's back to school time. No, I don't have any children going back to school, but that doesn't mean that I can't support my local schools. As the song says, "The children are our future...". General Mills and
Sam's club have teamed up to really promote the Boxtops for Education program. You too can earn cash for your school every time you shop for groceries. Clip Box Tops from hundreds of your favorite products. Each Box Tops coupon is worth 10¢ for your school—and that adds up fast! Here's a list of the products that you can choose from.

MyBlogSpark, General Mills, and Sam's club generously provided me with a $25.00 gift card to go out and explore the great deals on products that qualify for the Boxtops program. To be honest, every time I walk into Sam's Club, I am astounded by the variety of products available. Here's a list of some of the products that have been recently added to the program:

Progresso® Soups and Broth
Hamburger Helpers® Complete Meals

Chex Mix® Treat Bars

Total® Plus Omega 3

Gold Medal® Flour
Betty Crocker® Cake Mix
Bisquick® Gluten Free
Green Giant® Create a Meal®
Old El Paso Re-fried Beans
Totino’s® Crisp Crust Party Pizza®

LAND O LAKES® Butter


So what did I buy? I picked up some Nature Valley Trail Mix bars for my husband's lunches, some Honey Nut Cheerioes for breakfast, and some Chex Mix for munching on. Yummy!!!



Okay, now for the very cool part. General Mills, Sam's Club, and MyBlogspark have generously provided me with an extra $25.00 Gift Card to Sam's club for one of my readers.
Yeah! Free Stuff for you.

You too can go shopping for some amazing deals and help out your local school at the same time!
