Answers to your groupit questions...

Keep them coming and enter away. You have 2 more days.
Here are some of the comments left:

GroupIt Question: What types of payment do they accept: which credit cards, paypal?
GroupIt Feedback: They should have a Link to How it Works on their main page not just when you start to use it.
GroupIt Feedback: Sounds like a great idea. Maybe I'll try it for a baby shower I'll be hosting soon.
GroupIt Question: Are there a specific list of retailers you can choose from only? A list of those would be nice.
GroupIt Feedback: a video tutorial of how it works would probably help more people want to try it out.
Another comment - "all the same questions I had . Great feedback."
GroupIt Question: Do you see how much each person contributed or just the total? I don't think people would like having others know how much they contributed.
I would like to know how they collect the money? Is it all through Paypal?
Our ANSWERS:
We accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover credit cards for payment. We’ll soon have PayPal as a payment option as well.
Here is a link to a recent baby shower that raised $295 within a few hours. Saved the organizer a huge pain of collecting from everyone. https://www.groupit.com/gift/show?gift_hash=c9e1074f5b3f9fc8ea15d152add07294
You can select any item from any retailer to list on your Groupit. When the Groupit closes, you collect the money via PayPal or a check.
We agree! A video tutorial of the product would be great. We’ll get working on that!
The individual contributions made are kept confidential.

Collecting money for a Group Gift just got a lot easier with Groupit.com!
Perfect for:
•Baby Showers
•Wedding Showers
•Birthdays
•Class gifts
•and more!
With Groupit, you don’t have to front the cash for a big gift and then chase everyone down for collection. You can organize and collect on an awesome gift quickly and easily.
Here is an example of the product in action:
A woman in California threw a baby shower and invited 45 women to attend. Instead of enduring the nightmare of tracking everyone down and collecting checks and cash for a group gift, she decided to use Groupit. Only hours after sharing the link, she had raised $295 ($110 more than the Car Seat they had selected). No running around collecting, no awkward face to face interactions asking for money. Pretty awesome. She were thrilled with the result. Take a look: Baby Shower Groupit
If you ever find yourself organizing groups of people and money, Groupit is going to be a huge time saver. (and a lot more fun!)

rag headbands...

I'm officially addicted to making these headbands. I love them. These are ones I made out scrap fabric.
They are SOOOOO easy. Cause we all know, I only do easy!
Material needed~
glue gun
fabric scraps
headband
felt

Take a small piece of felt and cut it the shape you want your flower to be. Start on the edge anywhere. Glue the end of the fabric scrap. Twist and glue as you go. DONE! Add any center or fancy accessories you want.
I'm going to try it with old t-shirt material next!
Have FUN!!!

Random.org picked a winner and it is....

Mandy!!! Congrats Mandy. Email me your address @ eastmanfamily44@yahoo.com
and I will get it all shipped out!!!

Need extra cash? Start selling spring and summer!!

I've been so busy trying to get these all up and going in the same time. Time to start thinking about cleaning out those closets.
Take to consignment shop, eBay, or even some kids resell sales are great. Pull out last spring and summer! yes, they are in full swing to get selling.
Check it out...
http://shop.ebay.com/3fancypants/m.html
Someone asked me how I decide to sell and so forth. I divide into piles. eBay, consignment shop, and then giveaway. If something doesn't sell on eBay it goes in the consignment bag, then if the consignment shop doesn't buy it, I give it away.
I have learned that I really only like to take stuff to consignment shops that give me the cash right there. Then you don't have to go back and check if your stuff sold or not. Kid to Kid has been great for me here in Utah. Check your area for one. Don't forget to look for coupons that will give you extra 20% cash or trade-in.
The best was I bought a ton of stuff on clearance at Old Navy and took it took the consignment shop. I paid .97 -30% coupon so .67 for shoes, tops, and so on. They had a huge shopping cart full.  I averaged 2.35 per piece from the shop. I made 30.00 on the way home from Old Navy. Find your nitch and see if you can make it work for you!!
Have fun and good luck!
