Everything's Bought!

Well, we went out yesterday and finished up buying everything! I am so excited about this. Our bags should ship out tomorrow from the company we ordered them from. We may just be able to fill the bags this weekend! That would be so exciting if we are able to do this. If we can, we may just deliver them sooner then we thought! We are both off of work a week from today, so that would be pretty exciting to be able to deliver the bags a week from today. It would mean a lot to be able to get them out so soon.

After purchasing all of the bags and items needed to fill the bags, we really can't believe how much we spent. When we add everything up that is in the bags, they probably cost about $30 per bag. We got a lot of amazing donations, but all that money still adds up pretty quickly! Thank goodness we had a great fundraiser and we are able to do this round of bags without a problem. It's the future bags that we are worried about. We are going to have to get creative and start thinking about new ways of fundraising for the future, so we are able to continue doing MJ's Memories. Willie and I decided that maybe our goal should be only four times a year, or every four months instead of three. I think we will be able to do it four times a year without a problem. That makes me very happy.
