Today I paid $0.00 out of pocket for $9.99 worth of items. I recently got a $50 CVS gift card by cashing in $45 of rewards from Discover. I have decided to only spend from the gift card and to only buy items that give ECBs back for the rest of the year in an effort to work on my Millionaire List.

I got a diabetic monitoring system that is different from the one I gave my coworker last week. I am not sure if I am going to donate this kit or keep it for personal use or send it to my family as yet.
