We had a Relief Society meeting that focused on provident living.
Here is the invitation in PowerPoint version that you can edit. I printed these off to be the size of credit cards, and then laminated them. I got lots of compliments on them, and laminating sheets aren’t too excessively expensive (I usually get a pack of 100 for less than $12 on Amazon).
We asked six sisters to do mini-classes on the topics of canning, gardening, DIY cleaners, spirituality, coupons, and baby stuff (cloth diapers, homemade baby food, etc). We allowed time for sisters to visit 4 of the 6 classes (we figured that the baby stuff wasn’t applicable to everyone, and some people aren’t interested in gardening, etc). Each mini-class was 10 minutes long (which left some time for opening/closing and refreshments). I don’t plan more than 40 minutes of teaching in weeknight Relief Society Meeting… the sisters want to socialize too!
For refreshments, we had homemade bread (I made 2 loaves of white bread, a committee member made 2 loaves of wheat bread, the 2nd Counselor in the RS Presidency made gluten-free bread, and another committee member made homemade butter and jam).
Our entire activity came under our $50 budget (which bought bread, jam, and butter ingredients). This was a really successful, informative meeting!
