More Found Money

January 10th, 2012 at 04:44 pm

I kind of knew I had a couple of gift cards in my purse, but today I found them and they surprised me! One is for Old Navy for $5.83 and the other to Scheel's (a sporting goods company) $12.71. Both cards were from returning merchandise.

I will keep the cards to put towards the 2012 Christmas Fund. If I end up making a purchase at either store prior to Christmas shopping, I will simply reimburse the fund in cash. I want to be able to shop where I need, rather than only where I have gift cards.

After English Castle mentioned her daughter's lunch account, I remembered that one of my daughter's has a $4 balance in her account. And it's been that way for over a year, since she always takes her lunch from home. The other daughter does the same. I sent an email to the nutrition department asking for the return of the funds. Once received I'll put those towards the 2012 Christmas Fund as well.

Last I heard, small amounts add up!!

    Way to go!

    I have leftover toll money from Texas - probably around $20 or so. I just need to figure out how to get it!

    Sometimes toll money, Laura, works in different states. I was mightily pleased that my IPass worked elsewhere. CCF: Glad DD's forgetfulness spurred YOUR memory!
