Looks like Vogue Fabrics sells bolts, but I have no idea what the shipping on something like that would be.

As far as personal finance goes, you might be interested in Your Money or Your Life by Joe Dominguez and Vicki Robin. The main concept in the book is viewing money as life energy. In order to get your finances in order, you prioritize your spending based on what you want to spend your life energy on. One goal it champions besides financial intelligence is retiring early. It's definitely a book for people who are not comfortable with the typical financial trajectory of go to school, get job, start family, buy house, work some more, retire, etc.

There is a discussion forum based on this book at www.simpleliving.ne t. Not everyone on the board is aligned with your political angle (although quite a few people are to some degree), but you might find some of the discussions interesting. Many people there are doing interesting things because they got their finances to a point where they don't have to work full time. I credit that book with inspiring me to opt for a freelance career.

Good luck in your search, and keep posting your results - those resources would be interesting to hear about!

MizMosa,

Do you have a recipe for those cheesecakes you wouldn't mind posting? I'd love to try that.

I have helped out a lot at events like this with 100 people (mostly adults so the focus was on wine/beer - you won't have that problem). I would not go with anything hot. It's too much work - set up, serving (plus plates, forks, etc.), clean up. How many people are helping?

I would go with dry/semi-dry stuff that can be served cool or at room temp. and prepared ahead as much as possible:
popcorn is a good idea
veg. and dip
chips or bread chunks and dip (for $50 cheese is too expensive unless you just use some to flavor a dip)
bulk cookies (or warehouse stores have those great buckets of frozen cream puffs - just defrost)
fruit plates

You get the idea. Don't forget to include small plates and napkins in your $50 budget. You can probably find enough serving dishes at school/home. I agree with the bulk drink ideas above, except that getting 2 liters means adding cups to your list. It all depends on how much you can get donated and how much you will have to buy. Alternatively, buy cans and ask for a $0.25 or $0.50 donation. Take a look at a recent grocery receipt and you'll see how quickly $50 will disappear!  Wink

Hope the event is successful!

Pizza cookies made me think of an old recipe we made when I was a kid. Take sugar cookie dough and bake cookies. Then spread with strawberry jam (sauce) and top with coconut (cheese). You can add choc. chips and other stuff to look like toppings. If you used the tubes of dough, these could be mini, too.

That's great! And my 4 yr. old and 8 yr. old think it's cute!
