what does one do with $39 of gift certificates to a coffee stand

Monday, September 14, 2009


At the end of the school year, I got a $5 gift card to a local coffee stand for all the extra help that I did volunteeing at the school. It was a nice thought, but ended up on my desk. Then the kids and Shaun enterd the fair and some of their outstanding exhibits won prizes of coffee shop certificates. A little strange that was a prize to a kid's competition, but alright. So I counted it all out and realized that our family from June to August had recieved $39 in coffee cash. I shook my head in disbelief, only a non coffee drinking family would be this "lucky" So what do you do with all that. So we gave some away and we have tried a few Italian sodas. Tried a fruit soothie, but it smelled like coffee and I couldn't get past that. I am sure it was fine, but I just couldn't go there. We still have a bunch, and I have to admitt, when we drive up to get the italian soda, I look around to see if anyone is watching. I am not sure we will use all the gift certificates or not, but I do have to chuckle at the thought of $39. (should have been 40, but we were shorted one.)

As I was reading this, I thought about other things that the coffee shop might sell. Looks like you found the italian sodas. I would be just like like you and look around to see if anyone else was watching:)
