A few months back I signed up for Ebates -- a purchasing site that will pay you back a percentage of the cost of your purchase. My cousin doesn' trust sites like this but I decided to be the rebel and try it. I mean, seriously, isn't all of my information out there somewhere anyway?
I honestly don't remember what I bought -- maybe improved record keeping should be a part of my future? Ah, yes.
Anyway, I bought one thing, thought I would give it a try and, as is typical for me, I promptly forgot about it. I clearly think that "decluttering" applies to my memory as well as my home. At any rate, I never gave it another thought.
Fast forward to yesterday -- I went to the mailbox in anticipation as I am waiting for a rather important piece of correspondence -- it wasn't there but I did find an envelope from Ebates with a check for $8.16. I giggled.
I might be doing all my Christmas shopping through Ebates. I was very pleased.
