We love getting tips on the best practices for Food for Thought. FFT is an easy way to earn funds for our school on everything from your everyday expenses to occasional large purchases.
FFT fits into any budget and costs you nothing, in addition to your normal spending. Making your spending count toward vital school tools, programs, and services is simple. Just listen to the Ende family’s top five tips:
5. “We started by buying scrip for grocery retailers because we know that’s where we would be spending money regardless.”
4. “Since we still have little ones in the house, we use Amazon Subscribe & Save for regularly purchased items like diapers, wipes, and other supplies. It’s easy to add it to our Amazon account and those items were already in our budget.”
2. “Think ahead! For example, in September, I took advantage of the ShopwithScrip percent increase on Shutterfly knowing I’d be using that to create Christmas gifts in December.”
1. “Always read the FFT tips in the newsletters. One of my favorite tips I learned there was to buy the Visa card through FFT and use that to pay for school lunches.”
