Feeding the pregnancy craving and earning money for my daughter’s school


Guys. Pregnancy. It will either make you never want to eat again, or you will want to eat every single food item you think about. Spaghetti for breakfast? Sure. Dessert before dinner? Yup. Pickles dipped in ice cream? Probably. With my first pregnancy I had a food aversion to almost everything and the only things I really craved were ranch and soy sauce (I mean, I wanted to drink the stuff). This time around, I would like to eat everything salty and sweet. All at once.

One of my bigger craving for this pregnancy has been cereal. Yes, I want all that. Right now. Just the thought of some tasty sweet cereal in a bowl of milk in the morning/noon/night is making me hungry right now, even though I just ate.


Since I’m already buying all this cereal, I’ve been trying to buy mostly Box Tops items to put into my pregnant belly. So many public schools really need some love and funding, so this is perfect. Any little thing I can do to help my kid’s school, I will try and do. It seems all you need to do is cut off the box tops and send them to your school, then the school can get $0.10 for each top (this will definitely add up if all the kids in school do this).

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this already, but my daughter is headed to kindergarten this Fall (I can’t believe how fast she’s growing). I didn’t know much about the whole Box Tops program a few weeks ago, but I now know that when I buy a Box Tops item (like that delicious box of Reese’s® Peanut Butter Puffs® cereal in the photo above), my kid’s school can earn some money. It’s a win for this pregnant lady, and a win for my daughter’s school!

Is there anything you do to help raise money for your kid’s school?

    I’ve started donating and buying clothing from Schoola to raise money for my daughter’s elementary school!

      Don’t lie to me! You let me know when you’ll be here. You can come cuddle a brand new baby.
