Our family along with Mom, Dad, Chris and Grandma Spear had a garage sale last week. What a lot of work! Let's just say it was worth it. We did well.
I got this lemonade stand for free on-line. The kids had so much fun selling lemonade! We also had baked goods for the kids to sell too. The fresh baked cookies from Grandma probably made them the most cash :) Thanks Mom!
The lemonade stand was for two purposes. One, for the kids to learn a bit of entrepreneurship, two to let them EARN the money for vacation. The last reason alone was gold for me. This will save the begging for things that I don't want to spend our money on. :) They did buy the lemonade too. Of course I had a coupon, and they only spent $.50 on all the lemonade.
The kids pulled out all the stops and asked anyone and everyone if they wanted lemonade. The made out quite well! Between the two of them, they made $40+!!! ON LEMONADE!! So with spending money for Barakel and D.C., they are ready for the summer.
