Day 1: Used gift card donations

The Salvation Army Miss. Gulf Coast Command collects used and unused gift cards to redeem them for cash to help those in need.

My contribution: After finding a Macy's gift card that expired in 2006 and is of no use to nobody, I found a Smoothie King gift card and four Home Depot gift cards. After making a few phone calls and visiting a few stores, I found $22.62 worth of donations. Here's the breakdown:

Babies R Us: $2.47
Kmart: $3.25
Home Depot Card 1: $7.66
Home Depot Card 2: $1.49
Blockbuster: $5.00
Smoothie King: $2.75
