I told myself I wouldn't play this year, but my fiance came home with a game board so...

I saw this sitting on my kitchen counter in February, I almost cried.  For the past three years, I've been so sucked into Albertsons Monopoly that I would beg my friends for game pieces, secretly hope that the people in front of me in line weren't playing so I could ask the cashier for their unused pieces and eat the same damn can of tuna fish almost everyday because it was worth a bonus piece at check out. And you know what I've won? NOTHING. SQUAT. JACK. Every year I feel so defeated because I'm always like one piece away from winning something cool.  Never again I told myself. Never again!

But once the game board was in our apartment, it was on like Donkey Kong!  Everyone I knew started to give me their pieces.  (Big shout out to our tech Chandler who gave me over 100 of them! I don't know how he ended up with them, but I'm so happy he did!) I would run errands for our half marathon training coach simply so that I could keep the tokens from the Gatorade and snacks we needed after a long run. And you know what?

This year it paid off! My fiancé and I FINALLY won something on the game board!

Ok, it may have only been a $5 Albertson's Gift Card...but I still feel like a winner!

Have a stack of tickets you haven't opened yet or are hoping to pick up few more? You don't have long! According to our Albertson's on Parkcenter, they'll stop handing out the pieces after May 9th! Better go through your stash! Here's what's up for grabs!
