The Take Part I

Gifts have already started to come in and there is still Thursday's grand finale.

This is what I've gotten so far:

$50 Target
$10 Target
$20 Best Buy
$5 Chick Fila/Calendar/Dry Sausage
$10 Cinemark
2 St. Louis Cardinal World Champ Ornaments
Box of Treats
Tin of Cookies
Tin of chocolate covered popcorn

To top off an already productive day I took the family tonight to Panera because I had a FREE coupon for a Crispani pizza. While I was ordering the manager asks me if I would like this order that someone didn't pick up. 3 meals valued around $20 plus. I wasted my money ordered a meal for my kids to split. They basically gnawled away at the free food. My $40 dinner basically cost me about $9.

What I've spent so far on gifts for people at work:

$20 Dinner card for someone who just got married
$20 Target for my kid's homeroom teacher
3-$5 Panera gift cards for the PE/Art/Music teachers
$3 for administration gift

I'm ahead.

I also weighed in one day early and lost another 1.8 pounds. I broke the 20 pound barrier and finally got below 210. If I lose another 5 I'll be close to what I weighed when I got married in 1995. I am surely dodging bullets with all the junk/snack foods being thrown my way. Do I sense "regifting" coming on?
