Box Tops For Education!

As you know..I love to volunteer for my kids school. It keeps me involved and they love seeing me least for now they do!! LOL. One of my tasks is to collect all the box tops, count them, check their expiration dates and seperate them into bags of 50....UGGGGHHH!!  I had no idea what I was getting myself into! 
BUT..despite all is so worth it. Your child's school gets 10 cents for every box top collected..and they can use that money to buy really great things for the school. So remember to cut them out and donate them to the school...even if you don't have little can save them and donate them to your nearest elemetary school office. They will make sure to get them to the right person!!

                                    I finished another rug!!!

I will post a picture of it as soon as i teen and i share a of course i don't have it when i need it!! LOL. I really love the way it turned out and i can't wait to show you!! I made it using chocolate brown, tan and cream would go so good in my living room..but i have to part with it..might make myself one when i get the chance! 
Making an old fashioned toothbrush rug is really easy once you get the hang of it. And it costs next to nothing to make your first one. I used old sheets i had in my closet and a toothbrush i bought at the dollar store. I found a great video on utube that helped me understand exactly how to do it...
I hope these helped!! It really does look harder than it is! If you make will love it..but becareful..making them becomes addictive!! 

Until next time!!
May God bless you in all you do!


  1. It's nice to meet you Tonia. I will save the boxtops, there is a school only a block from me. Stay warm and it's okay to have an addiction if it gives you nice rugs for your home. Best wishes.

  2. Thank you Peggy...and i'm sure the school would really appreciate it...they need all the money they can get these days with the economy the way it is!!
