Happy Monday, Kids 🙂
How was the weekend?
On Saturday, I finally used a gift card I’d almost forgotten about . . .
While Christmas shopping in December, I was at the check-out to pay when the clerk told me I had spent enough to qualify for a $20.00 gift card. I was totally surprised because first of all, I didn’t realize that they were having such a promotion, and secondly, I didn’t think I had spent enough to receive twenty dollars!
I’m ever the skeptic, so as she handed me the card I said: “Oh, I am guessing that I’ll have to spend a certain amount to be able to use this $20.00? Or perhaps it expires quite soon?”
“No, no, it’s as good as cash here at this store.” she answered.
So, this weekend I discovered the card tucked among a few sales receipts in my wallet, and decided I’d better spend it while I was thinking of it.
New towels seemed like a good idea as ours were beginning to look shabby. When I got to the mall, they happened to be on sale for half-price! 🙂
I can’t tell you how much fun it was to leave that store with a fairly large bag of pretty new towels – for FREE!
As I carried them to the car, it definitely felt like Christmas. In fact, I swear I heard Christmas Carols! 😉
