I am a stay at home mom who is fed up with spending a large portion of income on grocery bills. It is my job, according to God, to be a good help mate for my husband. I am trying to live up to my job description. I am starting a journey into the grocery coupon world and invite you to come with me. I have never used coupons for grocery shopping and as of January 1st 2008 I am diving in. I will be using http://www.thegrocerygame/ , http://www.moneysavingmom.com and the http://www.couponmom.com/ website to guide me on how to save money. I am going to treat this adventure as a part time job and put in the hours necessary to make it work. I am excited and nervous to get started.

Lysol Must be Important

I emailed Lysol on Thursday because my $5 rebate check came and it was tore up. I don't mean a little tear I mean the whole top was ripped off, it was not even in an envelope. You could not even see who the check came from. Off I ran to the bank and tried to cash it anyway, only to be shot down and told that they could'nt cash a check that looked like that. Ayway I emailed Lysol. After receiving their response I do believe that they are a small division of Fort Knox. They are going to send me a prepaid envelope so that I can send the check back. Once they receive the said check they will issue a new one. I thought "Wow! All this for $5?" I think that the chairs you see in the picture are the seats for the people that handle the checks. The chairs are located right in the middle of their office. During business hours the door is probably unlocked twice a day for breaks. I think it would have been much simpler for them to say, "o.k. throw the check away, we will cancel it on our end and resubmit a new one." Instead they chose the high security, handle with extreme caution approach. I am eagerly awaiting for my prepaid envelope.
