It's that time of year again when our daughter's school encourages us to sell candy bars. We are not forced to, but we do have to raise $150 per family through fundraisers each year or buyout for the same amount. We've already sold magazines, pizzas, Kringles, entertainment books, MarketDay, etc., but I know we're still short. So we took two cases of candy bars so far, which will net us $50 toward our goal. That means I have 100 assorted candy bars staring me in the face. Last year, it was easy to get rid of the temptations, since I was still working full-time and just brought them and sold 3 cases in less than a week. This year, I don't think the kind folks at Weight Watchers would appreciate my candy bars.
It's noon on the first day and I've already had a nibble. There are four sections to each candy bar and seeing that all of my kids are home, we split one four ways. Maybe next year little Ben will be able to eat his share, but for now it was mine because I was not about to have a family war over the last section. I do feel good about only having one section and it did satisfy my sweet tooth for now. Here's hoping the family wants to buy about 75 candy bars this weekend at my neices' birthday party ;)
In the mean time, maybe I should do another giveaway...anybody up to having 100 candy bars in their house??
