Costco Trip for BTFE

I had spare time today between meetings and decided to stop by Costco to take advantage of their BTFE offers. Like many households with kids, we consume Cheerios, use tons of Kleenex, and run the dishwasher every day. It never hurts to stock up on some of these essential products. It’s a daily necessity and will consume it eventually.

I bought the following items:

  • 4 Kleenex box set
  • 2 Finish Dishwasher Detergent
  • 1 Box of Cheerios

Yes, I may have overpaid for buying a “brand” products. But, at least I feel good that I purchased these items for BTFE and the money raised from this effort will go towards my child’s school. I can feel better about overpaying for brand products.


  • 4 x 15 = 60 BTFE from Kleenex
  • 2 x 8    =16 BTFE from Finish Dishwasher Detergent
  • 1 x 2     =2 BTFE from 2 Boxes of Cheerios

Total of 78 BTFE.


Let’s puts this in perspective.  If there are 250 students in a school and let’s assume 50% of the family purchased what I just bought. That would equate to 78 x 125 = 9,750 BTFE or enough to raise $975 for the school. Wow. That’s mind-blowing because most schools target $1000 as their annual goal for BTFE. And this is achieved just by having 50% of the student body stopping by Costco and purchasing the said products. What are you waiting for, let’s get out and explore what else you can find at Costco!
