    any last boxtops to clip?

    Check those Kleenex boxes and other items that don't expire and see if you have any more clippable coupons to send in.  The current ones you have to scan your receipt, but I found a few at home that I still had to clip. We can make one last submission in January, so do one last search!  Thanks!
