In the past month between both my girls, theyve brought order forms home for cookie dough, popcorn, cookies, etc. Geesh. I feel a little embarassed bugging the neighbors every time they have something to sell.
Now my oldest brought home a big box of Fannie Mae candy bars of all sorts. Ugh! She was told if she sold all 60 by monday she's be entered into a drawing for $50.
Stop the insanity already!
Do you buy your kid's fundraising food etc? I try to buy at least one if I can, but I cannot always do that.

I'm with you, except my child's school doesn't even sell stuff. they just ask for monetary donations. They'll do fundraisers like "track attack" and you just ask for money to sponsor your kid. i never do it, cause I hate asking people for money. We usually just donate some ourselves and are done with it. Oh wait, they do sell coupon books for $20 a piece, that are good to use at local restaurants. Then there are other small fundraisers thru out the year, like "bring a donation on hat day and get to wear your favorite ball cap to school"....it gets old. That's for sure.

I think that if the state, where I'm at anyways, stops cutting the budget from the schools then they wouldn't have to have fundraisers to raise money for the school. They cut so much from the schools it's ridiculous. I do think that the schools tend to do quite too many of them all at once, but again, I don't think they'd have to do it if the states would stop cutting the budget from our children's education.
