The other night I helped host a fun night Relief Society activity at our church..."Swap til you Drop Meet" where everyone brings gently used clothes, home decor items, toys, baby items...etc.. It turned out awesome!!
I served these cute store bought Halloween cookies from Walmart.
I love being able to take store bought cookies look like there are something special. Just taking them out their containers that they come in and arranging them on a nice tray makes them look so much more impressive.
I showed this great little video called "Now Serving" it is all about doing random little things to brighten peoples day. It is really creatively done...it is only 2 min long take a minute to watch it..it will bring you a little joy.
I set up the gym with tables and signs to let everyone know where they could place all their goodies.
It was a great turn out with lots of clothes, toys, games, books, baby items, kitchen things and other decor items.
Everyone took home at least one bag of "treasures" for free!! I found a jacket, a book and carpet spot cleaning machine! It is such a great way to get rid of things you may not need but it might something that someone else would love!
All the leftover things were bagged up and donated to a local thrift store. It is a win win for all the women who attended as well as helping out our community thrift store.
Many of the women suggested we do this again and again!
