Yesterday and today have been great reminders to keep and check your receipts!
We spent last weekend painting the house inside, it looks so good and feels good too. I decided to hang up all the art and such that we have so we can enjoy our space and found I needed quite a bit of frames. We stopped at the craft store yesterday for frames and for storage that was on sale (love craft storage!). But when we checked out the storage rang up full price and one frame I thought would use a coupon, instead rang up full price since the coupon went to the storage. I went back through the customer service line to get my money back and to use the coupon on the correct product. It took a few transactions because they couldn’t quite figure out how to get it all on one receipt, but in the end it worked out fine.
Today I was reading the Sunday ads from the paper and found that the coffee table and side table I bought were now on sale! Don’t you hate when that happens? I’m such a bargain/clearance/sale shopper this drives me crazy! But I called the store, told them what happened and asked how long I had to get the cheaper price – two weeks and what do you know, tomorrow will be two weeks. I’m headed there today! So I made $50 by reading the ads and hanging on to my receipt.
