. . . and so does Bill. This is the one time of the year that I am glad he does what he does. What exactly does he do? He's a project manager for an electrical contractor. What that means is that every time I go somewhere with him, he asks me if I want to know how much that light fixture is (and the answer is usually no, I really don't care). He works with a lot of suppliers, and we get things every so often during the year. He usually goes to a Chicago White Sox game once a year on one of the suppliers. We do the same for people Bill works with (like general contractors and such).
This time of the year Bill gets a good amount of free stuff from the suppliers, and it started already. Yesterday, I guess he got lunch bought for him, a clock, and 2 (aff) Best Buy gift certificates. We don't know how much is on those certificates, but we are guessing probably $25. We could have used that last week when we bought camcorder, but what are you going to do? I can't wait to see what else we are doing to get! I know that Christmas isn't about the gifts and all that, but it is nice to get stuff.
