I was helping my mom look for something in her closet tonight, and I peeked inside a few of her purses that she’s not currently carrying to see if I could find what we were hunting for. I found some junk–receipts, a couple of tubes of old lipstick, a few earring backs–but I also found a few gift cards! I called to check the balance on the six cards. The verdict?
Barnes & Noble: $15
Macy’s Store Credit: $46.77
Office Max Store Credit: $5.77
We never found what we were originally looking for, but after finding $75+, we weren’t too disappointed. The best part, for me, aside from the sheer satisfaction of finding they had positive balances, was that she let me keep the Office Max, Barnes & Noble, and Whole Foods cards. (She reasoned that she wouldn’t have discovered the cards if I hadn’t; that’s not really true, as she would have when she switched purses, but I am thankful she’s sharing! And what great places for me, they’re right up my alley!)
