I discovered the Halifax Shopping "CenTRE" on Sunday and headed right over there with my Gap gift cards (thanks California coworkers!!!). When I whipped out the gift cards, what do you know? The $25-card was worth $25.49 Canadian. Small consolation considering the 15% HST.
Our stuff had better get here soon so I can take up my hobbies again instead of going shopping. I am frugal-challenged! I could definitely use some exercise and warm quilts anyway.
