Menu Plan Monday 10/19/09 & A CONFESSION
Last week my "I'll think I'll use coupons-again" was frustrating &
time consuming. Neither surprised me. Sigh.
I spent tons of time on Sunday night & Monday AM
planning, cutting, sorting, etc. Sigh again.
Then, after a 2 hr. shopping experience inside of MEIJER
and a cash register that kept ringing things twice, but a
really kind employee who worked hard to make it right...
I realized on the way home that the coupons were never used!
I'd handed them to her, but could picture RIGHT where they
were sitting... unused! UNUSED!
My eyes filled with tears. I was ANGRY!
ANGRY with myself for NOT reminding her.
GRRRRR.... more tears.
What a stinkin' waste of time & money!
And approximately $20 of coupons... gone! GONE! Grrr... again!
When I got home, my kind & patient husband encouraged me
to call the store. I did... and I'm pleased to say that the manager
sent me $20 gift card! Ok, so I'll got back there... in a few weeks.
The "Skip-Aldi-use-coupons-again-Challenge" continues
through the month. And my sister-in-law, Lana, gave me
lots of ideas about how to find on-line coupons & load'um
onto the store card of your choosing.
So, this week... it's KROGER. We'll see how it goes.
Next week I'll probably go back to Meijer again.
Ha... this was probably TMI.
You either think I'm totally insane or you completely relate.
