I had a Fred Meyer gift card. I'd first used much but not all of the funds on it for a good-sized purchase; today I went to my neighborhood Freddy's to finish it off. I planned out my shopping, a little more carefully than usual (and I try to be a careful grocery shopper). Six low-cost items, four of them from the Produce department, one a milk purchase with digital coupon, and a Reese's to get it over a certain threshold. My goal: spend no more than $1.00 over the amount on the gift card. I had $1.00 cash for that.
Maybe I planned too well. I used all but 24¢ from the gift card. The cashier said "You're halfway to a candy bar!"
Now I kind of hope that the next Freddy's cashier I go to doesn't mind that I use that gift card's last, and tiny, amount...
(Oh yes, I'm using it. Money is money.)
