I mean, I’m not sure what other note we EVER start off with around here.
1. I poured leftover paint into a glass jar.
I didn’t have a ton of paint left from Zoe’s room, and when you leave a small amount of paint in a bucket, I feel like it doesn’t last as well, even if you do seal it up tightly.
So, I poured the paint into an old peach jar, labeled it, and stored it for future touch-ups.
2. I contested an erroneous charge.
I used to have some blog services through an unnamed company and they have been an absolute bear to cancel with.
I did successfully cancel my services a year ago, and yet this month, I got an invoice and a charge.
They made it very difficult to get a refund (“We’ll need the 2nd digit of your credit card, the sixth digit, the date of the transaction, blah, blah, blah”), told me I was using the the wrong email address (even though I clearly wasn’t), and their phone number only goes to an answering machine.
I finally got ahold of a live person by trying another number and then he hung up on me (!) when I explained what I wanted.
I’m a pretty even keel person, but this whole process was starting to really tick me off. Bad customer service just feels so, so shady.
I did eventually get a live person who did not hang up on me, and hopefully my refund is on its way and I NEVER EVER have to deal with this company again.
(It probably goes without saying that I 1000% do not ever, ever recommend this company. I have all my hosting services through Agathon now, and they are 10 times as fantastic as any blog hosting company I have ever worked with. Their product is great and their customer service is A M A Z I N G.)
Also: If this company doesn’t refund my money, I will definitely dispute the charge with my credit card company.
3. I sold an old car radio.
I mainly listed it because I didn’t want to throw it out! But apparently someone was willing to pay $20 for it.
So, two wins: a little cash, and I didn’t have to throw it out.
4. I used a $40 Old Navy reward on some clearance items.
The $40 was from having their credit card (I always pay it off, of course), and I maximized my savings by buying deeply discounted items.
Because OF COURSE.
5. I used up the last of my beets.
Bonus points for me because I used a bruised apple. Bruises don’t matter in a blender!
Is a lemon/apple/carrot/beet smoothie tolerable?
Will I dream fondly about this smoothie in the future?
