silly me

So, I was thinking last night, on my way to sleep, that I'm pretty silly.

I really like gift cards, but then when I get one, I'm so chicken to actually use them! My exception to being careful with the cards is the Starbucks card.

I received a gift card last year for a spa and I can't bring myself to use it. I could get my eyebrows waxed every few weeks for 6 months with it. I could get a massage or a scrub or something. For whatever reason, I feel that there was significant value placed on the gift and I don't want to be frivolous about using it.

Is that completely lame or what? Especially because I don't dive for the gift card as a gift for someone I significantly value. I dive on the gift card when I honestly can't think of what do get for someone.

So, why did I think about this? I bought a new wallet and when I was pulling out my debit card yesterday to pay for something, I realized that for being a new wallet, it's pretty full already. And it's NOT full of cash. It's gift cards. I must have about 20 of them in there. I need to find some courage to start using them so I can thin out my cute new wallet.

Oh mighty blogosphere! Impute your courage to me!!! just kidding~but, am I alone in this??


  1. Thanks for the link, today your page, tomorrow top of the list on google, jk, i enjoy reading your post they make me laugh yet think, i didn't know the too coexisted

  2. You are alone in my book! The very minute I get a gift card, I am thinking about how to spend it! It's rare if I can keep it longer than a week!

  3. No, I'm the same way. I want to hoard them and I'm afraid I won't spend them wisely. What the heck is that? I say, spend them girlfriend.

    (Yet, as I say this, I, too, have about 10 in my wallet. Maybe I should hit the Gap tomorrow.)
