Can you tell what movie we got on Blu-Ray for the holidays? (Ice Age) It's the phrase of the week around here. (Prepare for the zombie apocalypse - or doom on you! LOL)
Either I have a Bullseye on my back, or this is getting much more rampant: I've hit the grocery stores for three quick trips (using up expiring coupons) over the last two weeks. Two of the three trips have had "phantom" items added onto my bill - $3.99 and $5.99 - and one didn't take off $8 from an item that was on sale. Not exactly pocket change, right? I've spent more time standing in line at customer service trying to get my money back than I have spent shopping in the stores itself! And it's not just one grocery, it's been both Freddy's and Safeway.
This is why I prefer self checkout - it doesn't happen when I ring everything up myself. Plus, at least my groceries are bagged properly. And I don't have to hear the clerks grumbling about using my cloth bags.
I seriously want another deep freezer (bigger) so I can just stock it and avoid the grocery store except for a once a week trip to grab some fruits and veggies. I'll miss good sales I suppose, but geez, I'm getting tired of it all.
DH convinced me to go out to eat at McDonald's when he came home yesterday. Not only was the play area closed for a party (Argh!!), but the food was so nasty I couldn't even finish it. Seriously, gag me. How do people eat this stuff every day? I give in because I know he loves fast food, but ick, ick, ick. I felt like I was eating a formaldehyde soaked body part.
Overly dramatic? Sorry. lol
I might be enjoying Amazon's subscribe and save idea a little too much. Instead of fighting my way through Target or WalMart last week, I was able to order the Ziploc big bags I needed, no hassle. Yay! Maybe I should just continue to order my groceries from Safeway online... hmmmm... less hassle... less gas...
Speaking of gas, does anyone else feel like we are headed back to $4+ a gallon? It was $3.19 here at the 76 closest to us yesterday. I know they raise the prices with the holidays, but it makes me cringe.
And the idiot of the year award goes to Charge: Man pushed stolen TV past Auburn PD. Then again, I'm sure the police were thrilled that he made their job easy that day. LOL
So I got annoyed with one of the cats who wasn't quite making the litter box each time. We had upgraded from a normal jumbo litter box to an under the bed style Rubbermaid tote. It improved, but not enough - now they were kicking litter everywhere. (can you see steam coming out of my ears? lol) So on a trip to Mudbay I noticed this giant litter box complete with a spot on the side for the litter scoop. I cringed at the $25.95 price. (So I'm cheap sometimes, sue me! lol Keep in mind that I had four cats though, so it adds up) The other day I stopped at the feed store for emergency rabbit chow (he mostly eats veggies, but I keep kibble in "The Cube" (yes, another Transformers reference) in case he wants a snack) and it hit me that we could do this a LOT cheaper. Enter the giant oval feed bin that is now a litter box in my bathroom. LOL Who needs four litter boxes when this does the place of three? Is only $21.99? AND solves the problem of litter being kicked out?
Yeah, I'm a dork - but a resourceful dork. ;)
