Shopping Trip July 4

I know I'm way late with this post. You were probably wondering where it went. 
I didn't get to it last week because I was out of town, and my parent's don't have unlimited internet so I didn't take my computer to be able to write a blog post or two while I was down there.. So, here it is, a few weeks late lol. 

As expected, there were many stores closed on July 4th. A good thing about this is that you know what stores actually care about their families and employees of such, makes me want to shop at Fareway and the bakery outlet all the more. 

Also a side note to my readers who use coupons. Please-for your sanity and the store's, read the coupon policy and adhere to it. Don't ask the clerk checking you out to violate this policy 'just once', don't make a big deal out of it.  Just follow their policy. That clerk violating that policy 'just once', could make them loose their job.... We were unfortunate witnesses to a disgruntled blogger who was also ad shopping with coupons-she threatened the clerk that she would leave a bad review, all because SHE wouldn't follow the store's coupon policy and wanted the store to waive the policy just for her. Those extreme couponing shows have made stores set many limits-that is one of them. So if you use coupons, make sure you know the policy and follow it. That's all, it's not that hard. 

I was able to go to Sunshine Foods, Sam's Club and Hy-Vee.
