I cashed out my points on mypoints for a Target gift card, as well as my credit card rewards points for Target giftcards. I have 110$ in giftcards to purchase gifts with. I also have a 10$ Kohl's gift card that I received as a promo b/c of a new store opening that will be used to buy a present. We will get our Christmas Club at the end of this month and it will have approximately 1200$ in it. We need to use some of that for our daycare provider's cash bonus, Wesley's Christmas pictures (which we will have taken in the first part of November), and the rest of Christmas.
