BTFE Back to school giveaway

Well school has been going on for awhile but who couldn't use more supplies?

Thanks again to My Blog Spark , I get to host a giveaway.

BTFE or Box Tops for Education are a way to earn money for school. Clip them off of products, send them in to your child's school coordinator and voila, you've helped them earn money. You can also go to their website and print out coupons.

My Blog Spark sent me a box with highlighters, glue sticks, binder and 2 coupons. One for Totino's Pizza Rolls and one for Pillsbury's Toaster Strudel. Both products have box tops on their packaging. And now Avery has joined in. The binder has two box tops attached to the upc. Great! The prize pack includes 14 box tops!

One lucky reader will win the following prize pack generously sponsored by My Blog Spark.



All you have to do is comment on what was the first thing you would do after school as a kid? Straight to sports, homework, TV?

Extra entries by tweeting or blogging about this giveaway. Please post a separate comment for each one you've done.

I will pick a winner using Random.org on September 18, 2009, 9:00pm CT. You have 48 hours to respond or I will have to choose another winner. The prize will be shipped by My Blog Spark.

I will not sell any emails or information given to me whatsoever.

This giveaway is only open to residents of the US, age 18 and over.

If your blog is private or you don't have a blog, you must give your email address in the comment. It is the way the winner will be contacted.

Good Luck!

EAT.... I was always staving by the time I got home. It was soooo far from lunch and altho close to dinner... I was still starved (or felt like it).

barbara said...

I turned on the TV and did math homework as soon as I got home. I loved math - no thinking - just DO it without paying attention.

OK, this is embarrassing. I would rush in and turn on Oprah, because after I had walked home, it was already half over. Then I'd eat something, and then do my chores.

The first thing I would do is turn on the tv and watch cartoons or Johnny Sockko! Only later would I do homework. Okay, usually I did it in the morning before running off to school. That was when I could walk to school and didn't have to wait for a bus.
