    I was going to mentione the Staples ink cartridges, as someone else did. Our students here sell candybars through Hershey fundraising for $1 a piece. You pay 50 cents, I believe for each oversized candy, I believe, so your markup is 100%. We like this fundraiser because people pay as they buy, and you don't have to deal with checks or delivering product later. Our rural school of 10 classes made $17,000 selling them. (Our PTG bought some incentive prizes at our local Walmart ot encourage the selling.) We also do a penny drive in the winter, where students bring in coins for each classroom. Each day, the PTG moms count the coins and award the class with the most money each day an ice cream treat. We raised $1500 doing this. The class with the most money raised at the end of 2 wks. got a pizza party, and the PTG had a school dance for the whole school to award the students for reaching their predetermined goal. I also like to encourage people with Target credit cards to sign up for their rewards program that sends a percentage of profits charged on the cards to the school of one's choice. If many have cards, it can add up. My best advice for you would be to get as many parent volunteers in helping you as you can. The bigger the team you have, the lighter your load! Good luck with your fundraising!
