One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

How my daughter earned $579.00 for her 8th grade class trip

I have been encouraging my daughter to write a blog about how she earned money to pay for her 8th grade class trip.  She, and her sister, are against it.  However, with today's economy her journey may be interesting.  If she does start up a blog,  I'll post the link.  Here is what she has done so far.  We are a long way from reaching the amount needed.

$22.00 earned from selling homemade macrame jewelry at an event
$12.00 earned from the summer library program for reading books

Amount still needed:  $545.00

It's been a difficult journey.  We'll see what happens over the next month.
