Gift cards

November 16th, 2006 at 10:32 am

My oldest daughter spent the night last night and took her little sister to daycare this morning, since she has today off. She will come and bring lunch with me today and bring my paycheck from Dr. Dentist office. Bills: I need to send out today are Medical payment 50.00 balance should be around 55.00. My oldest son just emailed me and said he needs insulin, he has been a diabetic since he was 1year old. He is in College now and has taken very good care of his health, I am very proud of him. His insurance copay is 25.00 for each vial and he needs two, since I work at a hospital I can purchase his insulin at cost +10% ( around 11.00 a vial)Currently, that is my contribution to keeping him healthy. so there is another 22.00. I will payroll deduct this, and try not to miss it to much on the paycheck.

I have been picking up gift cards at various stores each week, for 10.00 each, I figure by Christmas I should have a several hundred dollars for gift giving and purchasing. I started this idea several months ago, I am really excited about this, since I have them purchased in advance and can buy gifts with these without feeling it in my somewhat of a budget. Next year this should even be better if I purchase them throughout the entire year. Yeah!

    this is great idea! you could pick 4 stores, and do something like a 25$ certificate at each every month, which would be the same thing as saving $100/mo for Christmas... very cool

    True, 10.00 week works best for me, 25.00 seems a little harder for me to part with for some reason.
