Happy Birthday to me! <—- More on that in a minute.
A while back, I was given a gift card to shop at the Box Tops for Education® Marketplace® so I could check it all out and and stuff.
Back to the birthday thing… Since I will not say no to presents for me from me, I went shopping. 🙂
Algebraic Equation for ‘Guilt-free Shopping’
A gift card + my birthday = presents for me + box tops for schools!
I had totally forgotten how July 4th kicks off all kinds of summer sales, deals, clearance markdowns and close-outs (just in time for my birthday), and since the over 300 stores in the marketplace are the very same stores I’d be shopping at anyhow….
…like Banana Republic, Nordstrom, Gap, Target, Best Buy, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Macy’s, even Wal-Mart… how’s a girl to resist?
