if you found a $20 gift card to Target that you had forgotten all about?

  • I had one kicking around for months that I just never got around to using. My husband came home and told me about a student (high school) who's family got evicted from their home right before Christmas, so I had him give it to that student. If that hadn't happened I'd have bought a pair of shoes or a bag for myself. It was for the same amount at Target.

  • Me personally? I would use it to buy clothes for my daughter :) But that's just because there's nothing I really want, and our groceries are cheaper at the commissary. Buy yourself something for Mothers Day if you already have enough food.

  • What I would LIKE to do is buy myself something. But What I WILL do is buy more groceries. I am no longer allowed to get gift cards LOL I never use it for me I always spend it on the house, the kids or someone else.

    But as far as you are concerned... Buy yourself something!! HAPPY MOTHERS DAY

  • Do something for you and take a friend with you to make sure that's what you use it for. :0) I have to have supervision when I use a gift card or I buy everyone else something and not me.
