Had to redo entry, with new format.
In the end, I found some nice bed sheets to replace our own bed sheets. Will try to do another post on that. We liked them so much, I bought some more of the same brand for MM(17). I had also found a nice mattress protector for our bed, bought a backup (because has been kind of hit and miss) and then decided to pick one up for MM while I was at it. I went through the Target gift cards and found a nice surprise...
In the past, hell would have frozen over before I found a cent lying around the house. But... You guessed it. Bought these gift cards in 2018. Bought in December when on discount. They were e-gift cards and they got lost in the mix. I thought, "Surely I spent these down, they are from 2018." But.. Nope!
& we should probably spend down the 2019 ones, because probably just going to buy some more in December. I never do the max, mostly just buy enough for gifts and school supplies. I think for the best, we have a big pile to get through. I didn't bother tallying them all. But I think I had a good idea of all of them except for the paper print outs.
I had also been saving my Kohls card ($50 gift last Chrismas) to buy the kids shoes. But... They aren't going anywhere and seemed to have stopped growing. I am probably just going to get some more gift cards soon, so figured I would spend it.
It's not just a pandemic thing, we weren't getting through these cards anyway. It's just even more slow going right now.
