Raising money, Spending money

We held a fundraiser this weekend by hosting a Gold Party. It's such a neat concept though somewhat unknown. People bring their unwanted gold, silver and platinum and get cash for it on the spot. For hosting, we get 20% (normally 10% if not a fundraiser) of the total money given out. We just had two sweet friends come and show their support but we are excited to use the money we earned plus that given to us by a few other friends to help meet some needs of the orphans in India.

As for spending, get to a Kmart this week because they are having double and triple coupons. I went tonight and saved around $50. I got all this for $34.60 (would have been over $80). You can click the button, STL Mommy, to the right to see all the ways to save big! I can't wait to go back again later in the week when they hopefully restock their shelves. :)
