Gift Card Shopping Spree
Crystal and I went on our weekly date last night. We didn't have a lot of money in the budget this week for our date, so we had to get creative. We started off by having dinner at Taco Bell followed by a milkshake at Carl's Jr.
After our meal and dessert, we went on a gift card shopping spree. We had small amounts of money left on several gift cards totaling a little over $16 and about $2 in change in our pockets. We made it a challenge to see how much we could buy using only that money. We went to Toys 'R' Us, Wal-Mart, and Linens 'N' Things. Here's what we got for $2 cash out of pocket:
- Bag of Dove Christmas chocolates
- 2 Hot Wheels cars
- Package of 2 erasable kid's highlighters
- Ream of paper for our home office
- 4 giant coloring books
- 24-pack of Crayons
- King-sized Snickers bar
- Hand towel
- Wash cloth
Believe it or not, we had a blast. The challenge and creativity required for this date made it one of the best we remember in quite a while!
