I was originally planning on using my $25 voucher on groceries so that I could come home and take a picture of a table full of groceries and proudly announce that I bought everything on the table for less than $1. Then we saw the kid’s patio set in Martin’s one night while we were shopping. (Actually I didn’t notice it, I had my list, my coupons, and I was on a mission. The girls saw it and ran to sit down at the little chairs.) Steve and I talked about it and thought that it would be a neat thing for them to have, especially now that we finally have our patio in the backyard. So, today I went to Martin’s to get the last few points I needed for my 100 freezer points and I got the $25 voucher. Unfortunately they had already sold the last set. I ended up taking my chances and went to another store. I bought the display, the only ladybug set left. I did ask if I could get a discount and they told me no, but not having to put it together – priceless! The set was $29.99 – I redeemed my $25 voucher and then I paid the balance with my $10 gift card that Martin’s sent me last week. I got something that my girls will enjoy this summer and I didn’t have to pay anything!
How are you planning on using your $25 voucher? Are you gong to get a table full of groceries for $1, are you planning on buying extra to help out a friend or donate, or are you planning on buying a new umbrella and base for your patio set? I always enjoy hearing how other people use their “free money” – please feel free to share.
