The Mission: So providing an envelope of cash and telling people to spend it in 48 hours isn’t exactly a challenge, but it makes this assignment sound a lot more interesting. Spend $91.80 (we used the local area code for the amount) in two days. And if they could find fun and free activities ... bonus. The only catch was that they had to spend it at places, events or shops profiled in the September 2018 issue of Preview 918.

The Team: Helen Montgomery

Stop #1: We started off our shopping excursion in downtown Tulsa at The Boxyard. What a unique and fun place to gather with friends and shop. We met a great gal at the Beau & Arrow boutique who helped us decide on what to purchase from their awesome collection of Tulsa and Oklahoma-themed clothing and jewelry.
Cost: $34

Stop #2: By the time we left there, my sweet tooth was calling. The Sweet Boutique next door was a logical next stop. The gentleman there was very friendly and lots of fun to talk to. He offered up some yummy samples of their candy treats, and we left with a bag full of sweet, chocolatey goodies.
Cost: $5

Stop #3: Ida Red was our next destination. We spent a good deal of time there looking over their great selection of Oklahoma-made products and unique gift ideas. I couldn’t leave without a cute little outfit for my granddaughter.
Cost: $24

Stop #4: We capped our day with a refreshing drink and some of the best tasting Mexican cuisine in Tulsa at El Chico on 21st Street. The wait staff was great. Between providing excellent service and keeping our chip bowl filled, they also kindly indulged our request for photos.
Cost: $32
