November 16th Meeting – Coupon Speaker

Our last meeting:

  • Amanda reviewed lots of upcoming dates, read a thankful poem and gave our opening prayer
  • Our delicious brunch was provided by Group 1.
  • Our speaker was Maria from SavingsMania. She talked about some great ways to find coupons and match up the sales. I think our favorite part was when we received an envelope full of coupons. Maria reviewed each coupon and told us what to buy. We could get approximately $22 worth of items for about $3! Did anyone try it yet? I know Jennifer did! That’s her shopping photo at the top of this post.
  • Amanda talked about the Stars for FISH. We are shopping for a family with 2 children this year. All stars have been taken! Thank you! We have such generous moms! If you signed up, bring your wrapped gift with the star attached to our next meeting. We’ll send out a reminder e-mail closer to our next meeting.
  • We also talked about our upcoming fundraiser – Gift Wrapping. We’ll have a table at the church’s Holiday Gift Shop to sell tickets for gift wrapping on Sunday, December 2nd. We picked a date to gift wrap – Saturday, December 15th from 4-8 PM. We can stay later to wrap our own gifts too – maybe order out some dinner?
  • Amanda reviewed several more announcements – see below.
  • Elizabeth closed the meeting prayer and our circle time. There were 2 big announcements from moms – if you want the info, check with someone who was there. 😉
