8 School Fundraisers That Should Go Directly In The Garbage Can

5. Wrapping Paper And Other Garbage


This one has been annoying since I was a kid and my own mother refused to sell it. $20 for a roll or two of wrapping paper that will tear just as easily as the $5 brand- what a bargain. Who would buy this besides my sweet, gullible, 84-year old grandmothers who I would never bamboozle?

6. Holiday Plants

Our kid’s old daycare did this one every year and the poinsettias and wreaths are beautiful but do you have any idea what a large pain in the ass it is to load 20 poinsettias into your trunk to deliver to your friends and family? A very large pain.

7. Pricey Candy


I don’t know what ever happened to the $1 candy bars I used to sell so easily for my figure skating team but they seem to no longer exist. Instead, we get catalogs of over-priced crap candy that no one wants. Candy is an impulse purchase and a big box of giant $1 Kit-Kats are much easier to unload than expensive candy on the pages of a catalog.

8. Coupon Books


Now, I know these can come in quite handy but they are mostly for local establishments and many have restrictions on days of the week the coupons can be used. All of our family lives out of the area so these are largely useless to them. Even the chain restaurants in them are usually only for local franchises. These suck.
