We had our highly anticipated "Treasure Trade" Tuesday, February 17th. It was a HUGE success. We had LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of donated items. We started off the evening by having 2 brief classes on organization. Jamiee gave us great tips on how to keep the clutter down in your children's rooms. She showed us a great tracking system for chore lists for your children and suggestions on storage for their rooms. Sara had tips on paper organization and filing important papers. Trish had a GREAT idea of scanning important documents into your hard drive and then shredding the paper. Debbie showed a decorative ribbon holder that you can make at our October Enrichment night. Pam won the highly coveted "Door Prize" which was a "Diva" dustpan and small brush.

We sent the "shoppers" out in groups of 10 for 4 minutes each. Each sister got to choose 1 thing from one of the 4 rooms; Room 1~Christmas Dec & Linens Room 2~Children/Baby Items Room 3~Books, CD's, Videos, Dishes & General Kitchen and Outdoor Items Room 4~Clothing, Shoes, Bags/Purses, Home Dec, Furniture, Art.

Each shopper got two 4 minute shopping turns and then it was a "Free For All". We held a drawing for the Changing Table and Secretary. Nicole won the Changing Table and Marnell Hanson won the Secretary. There were several items left at the end of the evening and some of the members of the Oxnard Spanish Wards came and took items they needed.

We had delicious Chocolate Desserts as we shopped. It was a great evening!
