This Shopping Ban has so many kinks.
1. Gift cards. How should I handle spending these? Should I just spend them as if it's free money? Should I apply my saving/spending rules? Should I sell the gift cards for cash, and then apply my saving/spending rules? Should I just never spend them? What?! Also, what about gift cards for food vs. gift cards for clothes? What about gift cards to Starbucks? (one of my rules was very clearly, NO STARBUCKS).
2. I owe the public library a large sum of money*. whoopsyyyy. Should this money come out of my weekly $10 or should I just deal with it asap and then fuggedaboutit?
