I finally got serious about addressing the stack of items with receipts that needed to be returned. First stop this morning: Walmart. Ugh. Not my top pick. BUT,
I now have $21.10 on a gift card. The return clerk was really helpful. Some of my items, even with receipts, were purchased too long ago. BUT if she scanned it as if I didn't have my receipt, as long as it was in the system, she could give me store credit. All but one item worked. Yay. Now I have to contact the manufacturer about the item, as it never worked right. Clerk suggested writing to the company, hopefully they'd exchange it for me.
Next stop: Dollar Tree. Sadly, the ear buds bought for DS didn't fit right, and the 2 prong outlet gizmo converter to 3 prong (for my computer) is so tight, I can't get the 3 prong into it. Sigh. I'll have to find another solution. Meanwhile, I learned that while DT won't do an outright return, I can do an exchange. Fine.
Next, on to Kohl's, where I returned the 2 pricey but never worn, front closing bras I bought for my post surgery recovery. I just have had DD helping me to hook the back for me. I can finally unhook on my own with a bit of a struggle, depending how my day has been going. Making strides . . $80.83 credited back to my CC. I also bought College boy a new pair of sneakers, he desperately needs. He's been struggling, this is an easy thing for me to address . . . on sale, plus an extra 10% off so New Balance for just over $38 ($50 is my cap). Perfect.
Next, over to Savers, to return to brand new in pkg pair of black knee highs for work. So old, the rubberized elastic just rotted out. So, I knew I'd have to do a same day merchandise exchange, which I did, selecting the following as well:
http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/78396?feat=flannel%20sheets-SR0&page=ultrasoft-comfort-flannel-sheet-fitted-plaid) These cost (as a set) $122. I am loving $9, and these will keep me nice and toasty come Fall.
So $1.98 credit for the bad knee highs, and then I applied a 30% off completed "Savers Club" card which expires today, so out the door: Queen LL B flannel sheet set, towel, peds: $9.06 after paying Governor Molloy his tax. : )
