Bake Sale!

It is now two weeks before school starts and the *volunteer opportunities* are pouring in from all over. The main office needs people to stuff envelopes, the PTA needs workers for the various Back to School events, and the sports teams are organizing fundraisers. The thing is, if you say yes to absolutely everything, it can get a little overwhelming and feel suspiciously like a full-time job.

That said, I did agree to help out with an upcoming fundraiser for my son's cross country team.
The first fundraiser of the year will be held this weekend and next. It will be a car wash/bake sale. One of my jobs is to bake and package something to be sold this weekend.

I'm thinking of maybe Rice Krispie treats or sugar cookies.....something easy. ;)

It seems like so many *bake sales* now consist mostly of pre-packaged stuff from the grocery store bakery and that just seems tacky to me. Aren't all of the homemade goodies supposed to be the big allure of the bake sale?

  1. I'm with ya sister, bake sale implies homemade to me. It seems like whenever I have worked at a bake sale in the past the top favorite were rice krispies, brownies, choc chip cookies. I was just thinking though, maybe zip baggies of homemade granola or trail mix would go over well :)

  2. That's a good idea. I also considered bags of caramel corn.

  3. I wish my son's football fundraiser was a bake sale! That would make sense. Instead, they are selling cards (they're plastic and look like credit cards) that offer discounts at local business. Because they're only for local places, no one wants them unless they live in our town, so aunts, uncles, grandparents, my husbands coworkers wouldn't have any use for them. Seriously cuts down on our list of potential sales.
