Saving the Rebate

October 6th, 2011 at 03:08 pm

I received a $5 rebate from Home Depot in the mail today. It came in the form of a Prepaid Mastercard. I decided to save it for now.

I counted up the cash and gift cards on hand and found I have a total of $205.54! I think this is the beginning of the Christmas Fund. Smile

I was also notified that I will be receiving a deposit from Half.com in the amount of $15.41. I forgot about those sales! I might just pull that cash out and add it to the above mentioned fund.

Are you saving for Christmas? If so, how do you save?

    Thanks for the referral to Reusit.com. I have been looking for months for glass serving size containers (3 cups) and cannot find them where I live. Reusit.com has them!

    I save for Christmas by putting a certain amount aside every month. I also shop sales during the year.

    I try to shop a little bit all year round. I still end up having to get most stuff shortly before Christmas but it helps.

    Wow! I never thought of doing that! Good job!

    Unfortunately, we are not saving for Christmas. We probably will not have our own Christmas this year. But we will be at my wife's family's home for Christmas.

    P.S. This is uRabbit. Click my name for my new blog. Smile

    @Frugal: I did see your new blog. It looks great. My husband and I don't often buy each other gifts for Christmas just to save the cash to put toward other goals. And we just don't need the stuff!

    Too true! While there are still some things we would like (French Press for $20, stuff like that), we just don't NEED a lot of stuff. We are trying to cut down on the STUFF. Trying to be as minimalistic as sanely possible!
