Shopping with other people’s money
It’s always fun to go shopping when someone else is footing the bill. Like the time I had the chance to go shopping, as a committee member, for door prizes for a group’s annual Christmas banquet. Fellow committee members and I discussed the kinds of prizes we wanted to offer the group, and off I went. I purchased gift cards to local restaurants and other stores. We as a committee went round and round on those— trying to stay as local as possible, yet also offer prizes people would enjoy. Some of the crowd like going to McDonald’s for breakfast, so I purchased a few gift cards there. We also bought H-E-B gift cards and a few others with higher dollar amounts.
