We signed up for a squareup.com account. For those that don’t know what this is, it’s a small gadget you can plug into your smart phone so you can receive payments by credit/debit card (see image below). I figured this would make it easier for folks to purchase items from our rummage sale and bake sale during our fundraiser event. I may be having a little too much fun setting up our account. I love that you can set items with set price amounts to make it easy to add up items. For example, I can create an Item called Cookies $0.25. If someone buys 5 cookies, I can click on cookies 5 times and it adds it up for us. I’m very easily amused, as you can see. haha When I downloaded the app on my phone, it walked me through steps on how to use the app, so I made a $1 donation to our checking account that is set up for our adoption. We’ll be reaching our goal in no time. 😉
Not a new gadget, but an update on our progress to-date. We are receiving a huge donation from a local church this weekend. They are hosting a rummage sale and we are to receive anything that does not sell. According to the people from the church, there is usually a lot left over. We stopped by on Monday to check what they had so far, and oh my word, there is a lot there. Plus they are still accepting donations this week. We decided to rent a storage unit, because there is no way our small house will have room for everything. We are so thankful for all the generous people in our lives. Just can’t believe this! Also, we rented our first ever uhaul so it will make it easier to transport the items from the church to our house and storage unit. We’ll be getting a nice workout this weekend from moving all these items around. How fun! 🙂
That’s about it for now. Stay tuned!
