$20 challenge thwarted..

December 26th, 2010 at 05:53 pm

Mom gave me lottery tickets, won $4. She also gave me two new Lincoln dollars. I had never even heard of them. All of that money is going into the piggy bank, so that is $6 more to the $20 challenge.

Mom also bought me a pair of workout pants for Christmas. They don't really fit, and I had just loaded up on a bunch of yoga pants, etc. from the thrift store, so we agreed that I would return them. My plan was to take the refund, use a small part of it to buy a glass pitcher at the thrift store -- mine broke, and I use it to prep water for the fish tank-- and put the rest of the money toward the $20 challenge.

I just looked on the receipt -- Jc Penney-- and they said all refunds will be given in form of a gift card. Boo. I guess that ruins that plan. There isn't really anything I want to buy from Jc Penney, so I don't know what to do.

    Maybe something for the boys?

    Probably. Or, maybe I could find something I need for the house. I'm wondering if I could talk them into giving me cash instead of a gift card.

    If not, I could get the gift card and maybe go by the JCPenney outlet store. Then I could at least get more for the money!

    Try selling it on ebay. You can look at others that are posted to get a sense of how much you'd get.
