    I don’t blame the saleswoman this time. I actually bought something online for my son this week, saw the same item with a better deal so when the 1st one arrives, I’ll return it to the store. I tried to cancel it before it shipped, but they ship very quickly.
    Good morning, “Cathy” clan.

    At least now we have portable “mini-computers” (if you have a smartphone). I check reviews and prices before I purchase some items.

    Good morning, Cathy clan!

    Do stores even put things on hold anymore?

    Yes, they still do, but charge a fee to do it.

    Usually I’ve already done my online research by the time I get to a store, but if I just happen to see something for someone that I consider perfect and it’s not too outrageously priced, then I’ll go ahead and buy it. If, when I get home, I should happen to see the same thing online at a much lower price [say by at least $10.00], then I’d most likely go ahead and order it, then return the originally bought item to the store next time I’m going to be there. But if the same item is only pennies or maybe a dollar or two cheaper, then I’ll just keep what I bought at the store because that little bit of savings wouldn’t be worth the hassle of returning it.


    Hi, rgcviper!

  Thanks for the advice. Maybe I will “let” my mom treat us out to dinner for our anniversary. She’s 77 and I don’t know how much longer I’ll have her so if this would make her happy [even though I think she should be saving her money for herself], then I won’t refuse to let her do it — we’ll just have to make sure it’s not a very expensive restaurant when we do. B/T/W: if I know about it and it’s important to me, it goes on my calendar so that I don’t ever forget about it . . . and this goes for my “soul sister’s” upcoming special day too!!!!!


    Hello and Happy Wednesday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Hope everyone had a really nice day today.

    You’re so good! You must have everyone’s birthday marked down. :-)
    I agree with… let your mom buy dinner. She wants to treat you and it makes her feel valued. My mom is also 77 (maybe we are sisters after all :-)) and you’re right, you never know what’s going to happen.

    I’ve put things on hold at different stores and they’ve never charged me. Usually it’s only for 24 hours and they ask for my name and phone number.

    Mom — You are way too sweet (and far more organized than I will ever be).
