Gift Card Used = Less Mortgage Debt

October 27th, 2013 at 12:20 am

We used the Panera Bread gift card we earned from the Southwest Airline rewards tonight for dinner. Dinner for the four of us was $32.25. The gift card was $25. So we still paid $7.25 out of pocket.

As promised I am sending the value of the gift card used to the mortgage. So now we have $25 less debt because we ate out for dinner!

After our dinner we went to the mall to walk around. We didn't buy anything. This particular mall is dead. On the upper level there are only three stores still open, and there are less than 15 on the lower level. There are still two major department stores. There is a plan in place to revitalize the area, but they keep getting delayed. It would be nice if it happened while we still live here!!

Do you have a 'dead' mall in your town? Did you eat out for lunch or dinner this week?

    Our mall is alive and kickin- although many of the stores closed, someone else opened fairly quickly. I ate away from home several times this week, but most (but not all) were covered by my job due to working lunches or because I was on road trip.

    We have 2 malls (somewhat close by)and both seem to be alive and kicking.

    We did eat out this past week.....too much I have to say Frown
    Once was at Panera.....oh how I love that place! We rarely eat there but stopped for dinner on Wed as we had to go right by there to go pick up our tile for the bathroom/laundry room remodel.
