Re: less then 2 months in
Yeah me too! I'm not a salesmen at all! I and a couple of my close friends will buy from my son. But man am I impressed with some of the orders that come back!

Then sent grandma an email since she subscribes to about 10 mags, figured we could get her before she renewed then this year. Then dh and I both want 1 each. We should get enough to get the first level prize. That is my biggest problem with it- the guy (who is not school staff) got them all excited about the prizes. It didn't really occur to me that we might end up with more fund raisers because we chose the school, but as soon as we got the second one it hit me.
I must say though that the fundraisers we do, the people don't come and hype the prizes. We just pass out the info to the teachers and they pass out the packets to send home. The kiddos can read about the prizes in there in a "non-getting riled up way"
Thin mints. Must have thin mints. And Somoas!
