For this year’s birthday, I’ve decided to do something different. Something I’ve been planning since few years ago. That is to go on a GIFT CARD SPENDING SPREE DAY TRIP on my own! It sounds like a really exciting day already, doesn’t it? Apparently I have “collected” a bunch of gift cards from over the years and have not spent any yet. So I think maybe it’s time to do it all in one go and see how that will turn out. I also did some googling and find out that there’s a lot of birthday freebies in Toronto as well. I took a full day planning my entire schedule for my birthday so that I can make the most out of my day without spending a penny.
I had a very difficult time deciding which bag I should go for. I spent more hours than I should at Holt and I must say I underestimated my decision-making ability. But at last, I’ve decided to go for a more versatile and durable bag.
This birthday spending spree day trip is quite a hectic but enjoyable experience. I realize trying to spend all my gift cards and get all the birthday freebies in one day is quite ambitious and difficult. I think I have too much fun that I extend the day trip till the next day, claiming my birthday freebies at Menchi’s. I have to say, I am quite spoiled on my birthday this year.
I know not everyone is able to collect that many gift cards and spend them at all like the way I did. But don’t worry, there are a lot of birthday freebies offered everywhere in Toronto.
