This weekend, I found about 75 dollars worth of gift cards that Jill and I were given for Christmas. So, I went to Sam’s to start perparing for the twins. I am a planner (remember i had the planned out schedule for every day and hour of my honeymoon.) So, I like to stock up on supplies that we know we are going to need after the time the babies get her and diapers are so expensive that I think it is a good thing to go ahead and stock up on them and not have to worry about that for six months or so. AND now with twins, we’re going to go through twice the amount that Noah did. I also have a great plan in that I tape the receipt to them so I can take the ones that we outgrow back to the store.
So, I got to Sam’s yesterday and picked up the different sizes of diapers and some J and J body wash and a case of wipes. Got up to the checkout and they do not accept American Express gift cards. So, here I am with a shopping cart of baby supplies and knowing that it’s over fifty dollars (which is the amount that Jill and I have agreed not to spend with out consulting the other). So, I break the rule and go ahead and buy them. We’re going to need them and I really didn’t want to take them all the way back to the store. BUT my goal was to spend all the gift cards on baby stuff and so I went to Target and got 3 BIG bags of newborn diapers!!
