Just wanted to let you know what a HUGE time-saver SignUpGenius has been to me in planning numerous classroom parties and school events as well as some personal social gatherings. It's really a great tool, and I so appreciate you making it available for others to use. As in your comments, I'm much to busy to be worried about the silly details of coordinating things like snacks and sign-ups, so using this is freeing me up for more important (&fun!) activities. Thank You!!!!
