Free for real!

Some of the cool blogs I am following have such great ideas on saving on $$$$$’s.
I cannot for the life of me find the blog that recently did this little dandy, that I will describe below….if you know it….email me please the link! They had the coolest party!
It is a “lovin’ the recession” (I came up with that name; )  ) kind of party.
Each guest brings decor items they are “tired” of…….or maybe were gifted and could not use…..and we place them all together. We will have a certain number of items each guest brings and that is how many we can “take” from the kitty.
What a fun way to get “new” items for our homes…..fun items for “gifts” and a neat way to come together in tight times.
We are having our first party in August and will have a Christmas decor themed party in November. We may even have a fall themed one depending on turnout.
Everyone is invited. Going to post on facebook and send out to all our friends.
Each guest will bring a goodie to snack on.
Pass this on and get your brain working on what you would like to bring that is “tired” of being in your home!
Here are just a few things that I passed by yesterday…..I have SOOOOOO many more!
Important note as I took a photo of this plant….all items need dusted and freshened up. Gross! This was disgusting! I will dust this !!! ; )
Holly is despondent but she is staying! Don’t even beg or ask!
I’ve got a ton to find and do……
Still coming up with fine tuning on how we handle exchange.
Invite your friends and we will have a great time!
Where: My house
When: August sometime….fine tuning what night….after the 16th……
Time: 6:30
How many to bring….still fine tuning.
Email if interested in going and I will just keep you updated on details. Should have a def. date in day or two….just wanted to get you all started thinking!
Have a great day!
Love,
Me

    People could get play money for what they bring and spend it on other things that are “priced” as they come in. That way if you bring a “$5” item you leave with something comparable. If you bring something in the $50 category then you might get a comparable item, or several smaller ones. An objective party could do the categorizing.

    The green vase reminds me of the African tribal women you sometimes see in documentaries. Just sayin…..
