More Thanks and a Shopping Trip!

Thanks Lisa Coonts for the school supplies! Lisa is a Norwex Sales Consultant with me and was happy to give supplies for the school. The paint will be exciting!

The boys and I were at Target a couple days ago, and saw that school supplies were going on clearance already. Markers were $0.38 per package. Wow - that is a crazy cheap price. I just couldn't pass them up. So, I put out a call on Facebook. Who could kick in $5 to buy markers? And when the store ran out, I would move onto crayons, pencils, and more.

Here we are, on the way to Target, to get supplies.

Filling up the shopping cart. Jax and I made 6 piles of 4 items each. Why such an odd combo? Target has a coupon program that had school supplies at 10% off. You can use that program up to 6 times per day, and get 4 of the same item per scan. We were working the system to get the most discounts possible!

In the end $90 was pledged from friends on Facebook. We went a little over, and here is what $109.18 looks like. 100 blue pens. 140 black pens. 230 markers. 576 pencils. 576 crayons. 668 colored pencils. 24 pencil sharpeners. This will be combined with the supplies already on hand, and hopefully more supplies coming, and will be given to Brown's Town Infant School to assist with the school's needs. Thank you to Amy M, Tere G, Chris D, Emily B, Tanya K, Lisa N, Stephanie B, Patti F, Alicia H, Deidre E, Rachel S, Dana A, and Sue H. Your love went a long way!
