RVA Deals

Back-to-school time has gotten us thinking about things like Box Tops for Education and Campbell’s Labels for Education. Fill us in on which schools get yours. And while you’re at it, check out this week’s best deals on meat, produce, staples, and more.

This week at Ukrop’s, get $3 off when you buy 10 participating Box Tops for Education products, plus receive 30 bonus Box Tops by mail (See customer service for details). A lot of the same General Mills/Pillsbury/Betty Crocker items are included in the Mega Savings Event at Kroger, with $5 off 10 participating items (but no bonus box tops). The Kroger prices I list for Mega Event items include the discount for purchasing 10.

So on the topic of “back-to-school,” do you save Box Tops for Education or Campbell’s Labels for Education? I seem to acquire a lot and periodically drop them off at the local elementary school by default. For those of us without school-age kids, can anyone suggest some worthy local causes which collect them?
