going through the trash to save money

by | Jun 19, 2006 | Daily life

Before Eric left for Kansas city, we decided on a paint color and picked out the drapes for the master bedroom; we bought two panels and a curtain rod at JCPenney. When I went back this afternoon to pick up another panel for the side window, it rang up eight bucks cheaper! It had been a week, but I figured I’d bring in the old receipt to see if they would do a price adjustment.

Now, where was that receipt?

After searching the entire house (twice), it occured to me that it may have been accidently thrown out when I cleaned the bedroom. Ugh. I pulled on the rubber gloves and headed out to the trash, fully aware that it’s been 90 degrees for the last few days and thanking my lucky stars I had not put the garbage bin out this morning.

Finally! Under all the trash! At the very bottom of the bag! Eureka!

I found a wonderful manager at JCPenney that gave me the difference back even though it had technically been eight days, one day past their adjustment policy deadline. Completely worth sixteen dollars. :)
