I can't participate in my son's box top collection.

Because I rarely buy boxed stuff. He came home all happy about it too and showed me the paper they're supposed to put them on. He looked crestfallen when I told him I don't have box tops.

This is not a "I buy better food" post. I feel bad.

We don't participate either. It honestly doesn't really matter to me.

I buy the paper that has box tops on them (and my work buys them too), so my kids get to participate that way.

The box tops are on other products too, like Kotex, believe it or not, LOL!! When my kids were in private school, they did the box top collection and I was shocked when I found them on my tampons. You can go to the website and look at the list of products that have the box tops.

You could ask people you know if they buy stuff with the tops to give to him.

 Those boxtops are on everything, not just food.  And for the life of me I can't remember what I just saw boxtops on, thinking it was weird that product had it.  LOL.

It is on non-food items as well. I bought Avery Sticker Paper for a project and it has them.
