Just a Little Note...

Well, I didn't have the best day today. I went to Walmart with my paper/pen and coupons in tow. I was excited because I ended up coming across quite a few great deals that I hadn't noticed before. I wrote down the description of each item I found, as well as, the size, the price and any other info. Just as I was finishing up shopping and searching the deals (3 hours later) I realized that the piece of paper, the one with all the deals written down on it... was GONE!:( I went back through the store twice and never ended up finding it.

I promise I'm not trying to make this a poor me story. I did want to let you all know, though, so you understand that the Walmart deals I will be posting tomorrow won't be quite as extensive as I hoped! Oh well, that's life and it will go on, even without my Walmart deals paper!:)

On a positive note, my inbox is jam packed with deals, so stay tuned for lots of posts tonight!

This happened to me just last week at Target. I worked for 3 days straight on my strategy for the week at 4 different stores all written down on one piece of paper. I dropped it at Target and could not find it again. Very upsetting.

That sucks. I am sorry! We don't hold it against you :)

Amber Berry said...

I feel for you girl. When that happens to me, I just hope that someone finds it and at least uses it, so all my work at least benefits someone :)

I'm convinced that there's an alternate universe and that's where all those lost papers and missing socks from the dryer are! :-)

Daniel said...

Oh I hate that! I have done that at Walmart several times before and I just feel like I've lost my wallet or something! Ugh...so sorry, but thanks for all your effort in what you do!:) No worries!

Oh and I went to Walgreens today and they had 4 pack of Angel soft toilet paper on clearance for $1.09...I had a $.50 off coupon, so it was $.64 after tax for 4 rolls. Not as good as free, but ok. I can't seem to find the Cottonelle 4 packs for $1 anywhere. Anyone?

Betsy said...

I feel your pain.

Walmart eats the belongings of couponers. A few weeks after getting started couponing, I left my organizer filled with coupons & about $26 Wags rebate receipts in a cart there. I called as soon as I got home. Not there. Stopped there a few days later just to be sure - still not there.

But that is a Poor You story. What a bummer!

Jennifer said...

Thank you so much for all you do! I know that I feel so bad for you so you need not apologize. I might still be sitting in the store crying over my lost list at this point in my life!

no worries you are awesome. I will wait until later tomorrow night before i go to Walmart, because i dont want to go and miss out on some new possible deals. I dropped some q's yesterday and didnt realize it until i got in the line at Jewels. I was tooooo mad, i really wanted the stuff i had the 3 q's for..lol..luckily i had more q's at home..lol. side note: if you go to foodforless.com, they have samples you can get. I never knew that until i was looking for their weekly ad. Foodforless (chicago) is affiliated with krogers.

It must be something in the air....that happened to me once, then I found out I was pregnant :) The ol' prego brain at it's finest!

Walmart is well known for having the equivalent of shoplifter patrol for anybody writing down prices. My guess would be that one of those people saw you writing down prices and snagged your list.

superpaige said...

Sorry. But it makes me feel better when even a professional like you can lose a list, or a coupon. I go all the time and realize that the coupon is on the counter, or in the car.

Let's hope it's a better day today.

Julie said...

It's okay, you're not a bad person! :) I got up early for groceries today and LOST my list at 7 am. Maybe there's a place in the universe where all the lost lists go. Hang in there, I love your site and you save me so much money.
