It’s THEIR Card.

Walgreen’s has a prescription savings card which can also be used for Walgreen’s products.  If you use it for Walgreen’s products it saves you money by putting a % of the purchase onto the card when you purchase it and then using those funds for the next time you shop there.  Thereby, saving you money.   The problem is this:

The people at the front register at the Walgreen’s near me do not know how to use their own savings card.  I am constantly having problems when using the card.  They don’t know when to scan it or the machines aren’t taking it or “that is supposed to be used for the pharmacy” or the latest was, “I’ve never seen that before. Is that a Gift Card?:  There is no employee training on the savings Card and I am so frustrated.

I’ve contacted the  office or at least made a comment via computer, I’ve talked to every manager that works at the store. I’m almost ready to train them myself on how to use their own card.  The new total is supposed to show up on the receipt when I use the card but it doesn’t, so I fight with them almost every single time.  I am so frustrated.  I go in almost every time just expecting more problems.

I talked to the Pharmacy Manager who said I can pay for everything there and avoid the front desk register; but you would think they would find a way to fix this andI’m sure other people are experiencing this too.

The Shoppers Come Out Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the garage sale.  If you live in Orange County, CA and want more info, go to Craig’s List.  I posted an ad for it.  I really hope I make some money this time.  Even a small profit would be nice.  We don’t have a lot but we do have a lot of  big items like stand-up lamps.

I think after this I will start focusing on shredding, catching up on cleaning, doctor appointments and catching up with friends.

It’s weird not having therapist and chiropractic appointments anymore but it really does help save money.  $20.00 a visit puts your bank account  in the hole fast.  Now, I can get back to ordering gifts for Christmas early so I don’t go broke in December and in covering Birthdays.  Despite the fact that I never used to get my nieces and nephews presents for birthdays since they are adults, I figure since I am trying to stay close to those I have left and if I can afford to send something small for their birthday and it helps to brighten their day (especially the  unmarried ones), I will.  It’s difficult when the branches start falling off the family tree.  Funny, because I’m not really close to family but I’m closer than I realised, I guess.


Improvements & Accomplishments

We have recessed lighting now in the Kitchen and Living Room.  Our neighbor/friend came over on Saturday and took care of the lighting then S. Uncle called on and started the painting on Sat afternoon.  He is still not finished and coming back later in the week to finish as well as work on other projects.  He is a Handyman by trade.

I worked on the side yard and planted some seeds that are supposed to attract hummingbirds plus, I spent the whole day shopping at the mall with my friend, Kat.  It was a really nice day despite the fact that I spent a lot of money.  I went to Victoria’s Secret and bought one of their bra’s which are not cheap.  Plus, a very expensive Face Mask from my favorite make-up place (Origins) in Macy’s.  I do not use make-up that is animal tested at all.

I hate thiis time change and wish it would stay the same all the time.  It is silly to finally get adjusted to it and then have your body get adjusted to something else.    .
