Occupy My Wallet: Day 63

Well I finally did what I have always set out as a mother to do:  I was able to combine meat & school fundraising in one.  With the help of many, we had a meat raffle that helped contribute to my son's school.  When all was said and done - we sold $1299 in tickets.  Which is great, considering the price of tickets is a measly 3 for $2 (or roughly .66 cents each).  After the cost of the tickets ($26) and the cost of the meat ($373) - each organization walked away with $450 ($900 in profit total).  Not bad for 3 1/2 hours of meatastic fun.

So I did drop about $17 playing said meat raffle.  I didn't win anything.  That's okay though.
