650 candy bars later

Just an update on my dds fundraiser at school. Money is due tomorrow but we sold 650 candy bars and she is in 1st place!Unless someone comes in and buys a whole box of candy in one of the other kids names then she is going to win the $125 prize at school. I am planning to spend it on new cleats for softball, a new glove for her and to also pay my ticket to Tweetsy railroad since they are around $30. I think I am being fair in what I get her dont you? She technically did not actually sell this candy on her own. She had help.

  • Your plan is totally fair gemgem IMO. You are also helping her with the concept of TEAMwork! =) BTW...that is a LOT of $$$ to have to pay for a field trip (even 1 ticket @ $30)!

  • Sounds fair to me. By doing this it is also teaching her to be generous, responsible and helpful, imo.

  • really - that's a lot of candy!?!? All of the items for her are to lessen your burden but to give her something toward her activity... the railroad ticket does not make sense to me... why not allow her to have a splurge it is, afterall, bonus money as I would call it and encourage her to involve herself in the fundraisers if she wants dividends. I dunno...

  • We plan to give her around $20 to splurge on. Shes 6 so she has no real concept of money. The softball she wanted to play and she knows she needs new stuff and likes the idea of buying it with her own money. The railroad ticket is a field trip with her school. I paid her half, and have to pay my half. She wants me to come.

  • well that info makes more sense.. but ouch.. expensive ticket!! She is a bit young to understand completely, but you can always start teaching and this is a good way to.

  • I wouldn't just give it all to her,but this could be a good time,since this is extra money,to teach her about saving.
