    Default How would you spend it?

    Just a fun little question. I just got a $25 prepaid debit card in the mail from a rebate. So, how would you spend it? Stock up on groceries, buy something you need, go to the movies?

    If I was in a selfish mood, I would buy some crafting materials. But if I was in a generous mood, I'd get some food for my parents, to ease their monthly bills. And probably my conscience would push me into the generous category......

    I'd probably stock up on groceries. That's been my mindset lately.

    At this moment in time, I'd probably use it for Christmas gifts or on bills.

    Since I don't need anything, and looking into christmas buying, that's probably what I'd use it for...but that being said it's yours so do what you'd like.

    Welcome, Brilly!

    I would probably buy stuff for the deck we're building, since we're paying cash for all of it.

    ~Any money I get from rebates goes back to the category I purchased the rebate item from. That's almost always because the item would have been to pricy for my budget without the rebate so I count on having that money back to make the item affordable.~

    I take it back. Today, I would spend the money on 35 feet of 14-2G wire, an outlet, outlet cover, and a 15-amp breaker all at Ace Hardware. I really want to install a dedicated circuit for our microwave before winter, because I'm sick and tired of not being able to run the toaster oven and micro at the same time without popping a breaker.

    I would probably spend it on something to go in stock pile.
