Gift Cards

I got 3 gift cards to Target and one to Bath and Bodyworks for my birthday. I love gift cards, I love planning how to spend them, I almost always buy more than I intend.

What about you? Save them or spend them right away? And if you got them to Target or wherever, do you buy practical stuff, something you've wanted and haven't dared try, or what? Big price tag, or a bunch of little things. I'm looking at the sandals in the Target ad thinking, oh, yeah. But I'd wanted to buy a Buffy season on DVD. Or these really cool plates I saw earlier in the season....

Decisions, decisions.

Mary it sounds like you had a wonderful party!!!

I love gift cards...it depends as to how I spend them. If I have been wanting something badly I just go straight out and get it. If I'm not sure what to get I ponder for ages :)

Happy belated birthday, Mary!

I love gift cards. I do my level best to buy something fun. Practical stuff I'd have to buy anyway. :)

From one Buffy fan to another: buy the Buffy DVD.

And glad you had a happy birthday!

I always end up spending more than my card is for. Target has some great sandals this season, but Buffy would be good too. :-)

A gift card to Indigo (Canadian bookstore) is the best present in the whole world my boyfriend can buy me. I ration myself, buying a book here and there, letting that lovely little card stay in my wallet as long as possible. There's something so great about having "free" books just waiting to be bought.

Happy Belated b-day!!

Happy shopping!

I forgot to mention, my grade level gave me a B&N gift card that didn't even make it through the day. I got online as soon as I got home, ordered three books I've been wanting. I so don't save my gift cards!

Didn't make it to Target. I'm not feeling well, and breakfast was the best I could do. Slept the rest of the day (no, not hungover).

Thanks for the wishes, Steph! I couldn't do that....hold onto it like that. My wish list at Amazon is like 15 books long.

Still no spending of $$$$....
