My routine is to go shopping on Saturday morning at Loblaws. I go to Loblaws because it opens the earliest! Loblaws here can be pricey in some things so I am very careful about what I buy there but there is enough that is priced well that it is worth it to go.
In the past the price "specials" changed on Saturdays and so often these would not be posted yet or old sales were still up, so you had to be quite careful in the shopping. Then they changed the day the specials changed to Friday and recently they have moved it to Thursdays. At the rate they are going they will be back at Saturday again soon.
Anyway, my point is that even though the specials now change on Thursday, the tags may still be wrong on Saturday. And as I memorize the price of everything when I pick it up, I can let the cashier know that things are priced incorrectly. And their policy is that if you find something priced incorrectly, you get it free. So I come home with free stuff every week. (not on purpose- but their tags don't clearly indicate when the sale is over so I don't know) But I think about all the people shopping on Thursday and Friday who were being overcharged and never noticed.
I've been up since 4am so am having my second breakfast (muffins and lemonade) now.
Our community has been hit with some very sad things this week.
5 teenagers were in an accident that was unsurvivable. 2 passed away. 1 is fighting for his life. 2 others are less physically scathed but must have other emotional wounds. The SUV they were driving in was unrecognizable, so that some of them survived is a miracle in itself. I hope the survivors are able to move past this.
1 woman was in a relationship that was unsurvivable, leaving 3 young children without a mother.
Mark's April passed away suddenly this week. Also another death too young.
James' hockey team is having a yard sale to raise money for their trips. We are going to be doing a lot of fund raising this summer. The team is also going on a family bike ride on July 4 so I need to get our bikes in shape. And look for things in the garage to sell!
