A few days ago I realized my $5 ECBs from the Beauty Club were expired. Fortunately my CVS will allow you to use expired ECBs for a day or two, so I made a mad dash around the store to pick up stuff. For $5 I got one Rice-a-Roni, one Wesson Oil, and one bag of jelly beans. I got back $1 in ECBs.
Also Kohl’s sent me a $5 gift card. I can always spend one of those! I found a cute zebra-sriped toddler sweatshirt on clearance for $2.50– so I bought 2. They were originally listed at $15 but I think $10 is a more realistic price.
As usual the food will go to the local food pantry and clothes to one of the many charities I support.
