Let’s see how much I can buy with the $12 I won at TOPS

I use affiliate links in some of my posts. I may earn a commission if you use my links. Full disclosure.

 

I won $12 by playing the 50/50 raffle at TOPS on Wednesday night.  For most people, $12 will not go very far. But, I bet I can s-t-r-e-t-c-h that $12 and buy several hundred dollars worth of stuff! I’ve decided to turn it into a little game and I’m going to keep track of exactly how I spend that $12. Here we go…

Note: As you can see, this keeping track idea was an after thought so the purchases below are not in order. I think I’m all caught up now.
