At HEB today, I found myself continuously putting back items as I worked to stick within my budget. When I checked out, the price was a few dollars more than I had estimated. After stepping aside with my receipt, I noticed that two items were marked higher than I thought they had been. I walked back through the store (big store), confirmed my prices, took my receipt to a friendly manager, and was given $1.60 back. It may not seem like much to some, put today, it added up for me.
Another funny thing happened at the grocery store. I was set to get a pork tenderloin. Before I could get it (last one), a lady got to it first. Serves me right for looking at the pork roasts first!
Of course, I was happy that many of the items on my grocery list were on sale today!
