Post #58 – $7,044.45 Worth of Children’s Outerwear? Sure, why not! – 76.8% in Savings.

$7,044.45 in product, $1642.26 in cash

Amazing, simply amazing.


On Tuesday of last week I asked my friends, supporters and donors to kick in money for children’s winter outerwear. I told everyone I could get a 3.33 return on their money, for every $1 they gave me I could buy $3.33 in clothes. I also said I would try to negotiate with Loblaws (which is hard as heck, but not impossible).

PEOPLE STEPPED UP HUGE! Maybe the most impressive thing is that it took only 26 donors to get this to happen!

We collected just under $1,600. SH and I both bought some stuff earlier in the week to try and “prompt” PC Points to give us Joe Fresh bonuses on our PC Plus bonuses for the week.

The good news is SH’s card hit and we got 10% more stuff! She got $160 in PC points from the purchase of $1,600 so we went right back to the racks and bought more stuff!
