The most stupefying thing happened this weekend. I had 3 errands to run at 3 different stores, and I didn’t spend a dime (if you don’t count the gas). In fact, I actually MADE money. Let me explain.
First stop: Verizon Wireless. I got hubby’s phone book and pictures transferred to his new phone (which also didn’t cost me a dime). Cost $0.
Second stop: Border’s Books. I was trying to buy hubby the newest book for his Bible Study. They didn’t have it. They couldn’t even special order it. Cost $0.
Third stop: Tar-jay…the mecca. I didn’t have a list. I resisted all temptations. And, I got a FREE $20 giftcard!! How, you ask? I got a little coupon for starting up a baby registry. Start one up (almost painless) and get $20! How fabulous! And, I was so excited that I didn’t even spend a single penny there. Don’t be jealous. Be happy for me. So, now I’ve got a baby registry with like 10 things on it, spent about 10 minutes there, and got paid $20. I don’t think you can beat that. Cost -$20.
And, an added bonus. I had quiet in the car, and at the store. I got to go all by myself. What more could a mommy ask for?
