Squibbles posted on FTF the following challenge:

I got a gift card ($100) sent to me from my company as a thank you and I want to spend this on something unique and fun. So, here is what I do not want to spend it on (I already have a budget for these items, sorta):

No to:
*A full tank of gas
*Online/Offline Poker Bankroll addition
*Online porn

Because of my limitations for the use of this card, and I really don't want to throw the $100 towards something else, I am trying to find something fun, tangible and creative to spend this $100 on and I have stumped myself.

Any suggestion?

Hmmmm.  How about buy school supplies for Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee Zooks97 & Zooks99.

Yeah, that's not what I had in mind either.

I usually shop at Walmart because it's close and cheap. 

I'm all about the cheap. 

Today the kids and I needed to get out of the house for a while.  We headed to lunch at a spot near Target so I decided we would do our school shopping there. 

I'm pretty sure that I didn't spend $100 on school supplies last year.  Granted $30 dollars of this year's total was spent on two calculators that I know weren't on the list last year.  Still, I'm pretty sure it was closer to $50 last year.

It's a good thing that I love this stuff.  Love. It.  I used to live to go school supply shopping.  My oldest is the same way.  He's already opened everything up and is in the process of writing his name all over anything and everything. 

The youngest is not a big fan of school supplies.  His are still in the pile I made while he's on the computer playing Maplestory.

Only 34 more days until school starts.  Color me giddy.
