Even I am getting a bit sick of me blathering on about Christmas. So I will continue anyways just to annoy myself. I'm a bit like DJ today. Not good people, not good.
I got a $25 gift card from My Points for Bass Pro Shop. I'm counting it in the tally. It's like free money, right? It's kinda better than free money since I don't have to take the cash and go shopping. Anywho, I'm the boss of this mess and that's how I'm doing it. Can you tell that I have been putting the smack down on the people that I live with?
And here is what we have....................
My Points $25 (gift card)
Send Earnings $27.94
Amazon Gift card $100(won)
HHGregg Visa cards $469.99
For a grand total of------$975.93
So the gifts that I have look a little something like this..........................
1 $25 Bass Pro Shop Gift card(free)
4 $25 Amazon Gift Cards(I paid FULL PRICE)
2 $10 Boston Market Gift card for $10
2 $10 Chili's gift cards(free?)
3 felt hats at $1.93 each. $5.79 for all(50% off)
2 Christmas bells at $4 each. $8 for all(50% off)
1 tabletop ping pong for free(was $10 marked down to $5 used my CVS bucks to pay for it)
6 spatulas for1.92 each. $11.52 for all(70% off)
9 plates for 1.92 each. $17.28 for all(70% off)
11 cookies jars at 6.39 each. $70.29 for all(70% off)
I've spent $222.88. If I had paid full price, it would have been $532.88. I'm at 58.18% savings rate. It feels pretty good to get the money for free and then turn around and save almost 60% on the things that I do buy.
Wish I was this clever with the mortgage,
