I accompanied A. to a Scholastic Book Fair at one of their warehouses yesterday to find books for her fourth-grade class. Scholastic relies on volunteers to make these warehouse sales successful, and it looked like they were having a hard time this weekend. Once she found everything she needed, we stood on line for two and a half hours.
She is also planning to attend two more Scholastic warehouse sales next weekend. While I prepare this week for more long lines, here are some recent articles from the MoneyBlogNetwork and beyond.
