First day of SDs at HT and a bit of a rant...

I just have to say that I love to share the wealth, that's why I have this blog....BUT, ever since the airing of Extreme Couponing people have come out of the wood works to save some cash. Still, totally fine with me. However, I do have a problem with people working the system. I saw a lady yesterday with her husband and teenage son dividing and dispersing items and handing out VIC cards to each of them. They are obviously in one household, and using 3 different cards (against store policy). I know, you're probably thinking "she's just mad because she probably didn't get some of the items she wanted". YES, you're right! She had 6 packs of Bounty napkins and 6 boxes of the Lance Cracker things that I wanted. Darn it! Rant over, I feel better now:)

When stock is out, get a rain check (RC) because they never expire. Also ask when the delivery trucks get in. Be sure to ask about a specific truck because deliveries come in different days. For instance, grocery items come in on Thursdays at my store but frozen items don't come in until Mondays.
