I'd like to give a "YEE-HA" to Real Simple magazine. There's nothing better than finding that thick publication sitting pretty in my mailbox.
Recently, they've had this little blip about what one random reader would do with $100 in her pocket and a day to herself.
I thought this would be fun, so here goes.
What I would do in my small town Minnesota life with one day and $100...
(this is assuming I have a full tank of gas and no children in tow)
$15 - itunes for new songs to listen to during the day
Drive to Willmar and hang out in Target for at least an hour, not buying, just browsing...
$3.75 - Strawberry Pink Freeze from Dunn Bros. Coffee (I can't decide if this is a smoothie or a milkshake, and I'm afraid to ask. It's just yummy.)
Drive to St. Cloud...alone...bliss....
$25 - $30 to spend in Barnes and Noble in St. Cloud. I will also be spending at least 2 hours browsing in this store, thank you.
$10 - Panera Bread for lunch: Chicken Salad sandwhich, Broccoli Cheddar Soup or Chicken Wild Rice, whichever day it is.
$4 - Cold Stone Creamery. 'Nuff said.
$35 - Old Navy. Slow shopping. Trying on stuff, taking my time. They play cool music in there.
Oh bummer, I think I'm over my spending limit. I really wanted to have enough to go to Red Lobster for dinner. Anyway, there it is.
