$50 – I took $450 from the fund and turned it into $500 in gift cards at Winn Dixie. They were running a promotion where you got $5 off a $50 gift card. So I did it 10 times and ended up with $50 extra for the fund. The manager didn’t even know there was a sale on gift cards that week. I guess I am the only person in Trussville, AL that looks for them.
$10 – I got a Publix gift card in the mail. I used it to pay for my groceries last week and took $10 in cash out of the grocery budget to deposit to my fund.
