Question for you all: I bought a Philips Dual Screen DVD player for my car from WM last week. When we opened the box, it was right before we were about to leave and we immediately realized it had been used (one of the screens was dirty, like something spattered onto it). We didn't have time to go back to WM, so we used it, it worked just fine, however, I really would like a new one b/c who knows how long this one will last. Do you think WM will hassle me if I go to exchange for a new one?

I don't think it will be a problem at all.. especially if u do an even exchange. My DH used to return to WM often. They were always much less hassle than target.

just say you realized after you bought it last wk that it had been used. just don't tell them you used it also Teehee. not your fault they restocked a used item. if it had been new, the issue never would have come up. and you only go to walmart maybe once a wk b/c gas is expensive, so you waited till the next time you go. it's not like you used it for your trip and now you want to return it.

I dont want to be yelled at by Heidi anymore so I though I would make THIS known.
Heidi thanks you. She's a fancy dog. Her dishes are up on stands. Bigger dogs, taller dishes but those elevated dog dishes are ridiculously expensive. I found some 5 qt. stainless steel dishes on clearance at Menards for a couple bucks. I like the stainless cuz we have hard water and I can use a metal scrubby and they shine right up. Anyway... then I bought two of those metal plant stands from Dollar General -- bough18" tall and $4 each. Works great for the two of them. Then we ended up with this dang chihuahua and I had to get her some little bitty stainless steel bowls ($0.99 at Wal-Mart) and put them on the floor.

yeah, but i got a bff/neighbor w/ 9yr old twin girls and 3yr old twin boys. cannot show up to birthday parties empty-handed. and the kids remember what you got them. oh yeah. and bff has hates her sil who gives her really cheap presents and she doesn't like it when other people give her stuff w/o gift receipts. at the same time bff doesn't want me to spend a lot of money so i really have to look really hard and also think carefully so kids don't fight. cannot make everyone happy all the time, so i get them very nice but inexpensive presents but can't do anything about not having a gift receipt. anyway bff would do way better if she regifted.

just this past march caught the older girl twin switching the little miss clip-on doll i used as a gift tag b/c she liked her sister's better and her sister said no when i told her to ask if she would switch. and then i spent a half hr to hr after the party consoling the wailing younger one b/c somebody gave her sister a highly collectible webkinz. at 9 yrs old she wouldn't accept that all the stores were closed and wanted her mom to buy one online w/ her bday money. but i knew her mom didn't want to spend $30 on a stuffed animal so it was really difficult to pacify her. her dad finally promised to take her shopping the next day.

luckily one likes pink and one likes purple and she's also more tomboy so i can usually give them different colored of the same item. except those little miss dolls. the one who likes purple liked the pink one better, sigh!

i buy them bday presents, usually ramadan presents and also xmas presents. can't invite them over for xmas day brunch to enjoy the xmas tree and holiday at somebody else's house and not have presents for them. xmas tree = xmas gifts to little kids.

then my db has a ds. one time for either his bday or xmas which are both in dec he asked if i got him a toy and i'd gotten him clothes. so now i always make sure he gets a toy. and i always do separate bday and xmas b/c my bday is always a few days after thanksgiving so my bday was always a cake after the turkey and people would give me a combined bday/xmas present which i hated.

sil has 2 teenage ds. sil is very traditional. every holiday has to be celebrated on that day and everyone has to have an xmas present. sil used to throw huge bday parties for her ds' and we used to live across the street for 3 yrs. after the parties dh used to drive sil to toyrus to return all the duplicates and triplicates. so long time ago i decided to put their bday presents and xmas presents and money that sil and bil would have gotten into a college fund every yr. but i still have to buy them something to open. this yr i don't know what they are going to get b/c they are now past toys and electronic games are too expensive as a token gift.

i think one of them will end up being my black friday shopping buddy this yr at walmart at midnite. last yr i helped him get a game by looking up the price on sd, and price matching it at target b/c walmart was sold out. he got a $30 game for $10. he is a very savvy kid. last yr he told me at thanksgiving he wanted a docking station for his ipod and i was able to get him one 75% off at target so he gets exactly what he wants. the other one is more difficult so i like to tease him. i keep telling him he can clean my car to earn money to buy stuff so last yr i gave him a car cleaning gift kitlaugh out loud. and some stupid hamster or gerbil dvd that was a target deal last yr.

i have a nephew and niece in italy that come once a yr, usually around thanksgiving. i never see them for bdays and xmas so i like to give them some toys and clothes when they come and when sil comes also twice a yr for business. i also help sil shop when she's here b/c clothes are much, much cheaper here than italy but there is so much better quality. don't think it's fair that just b/c i only see them once a yr they don't get the gifts that their cousins get.

also have a god-daughter and her brother. she is also getting too old for me to buy toys and clothing for bday and xmas. i think her db is probably ok w/ legos for a few more yrs. i am so horrible at mailing stuff to them. i am 3 presents behind. another reason i need to change what i do in regards to presents b/c it's not working.

so thats 4 + 1 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 11 kids i've been shopping for every yr. i think starting this xmas it will only be 8 and 3 may end up w/ giftcards or money. and then the 2-9 yr old girls i may start taking them out shopping or ice skating, etc. starting next yr.

this doesn't include kids bday parties i get invited to, which luckily has been tapering off a lot recently as all my friends kids have gotten older. but that also means i don't get together w/ my friends as often anymore. however, in the couple yrs i have been seeing them at funerals for their parents. and this past yr for 2 of our friends Frown

oh, hon that does sound like it could be very painful when knitting.
looked up some links for you, in case you ever want to try.

arthritis today article on knitting and needlework with arthritis [arthritistoday.org]

casein needle review from those with arthritis [knittersreview.com]


Blowkiss

i shattered my wrist and several metacarpals years ago. that hand has never acted the same, and cramps up with activity etc. I found picking the lighter non-metal needles, and knitting in to one's lap was very helpful for me. plus wool was much stretchier, so easier to do. especially if you pick one of those chunky yarns that are in style now, and knit one of those chunky scarves or blankets with the multicolored yarn - it's a looser weave, so less taxing on the hands.

My sister *hates* any of the 7th Gen cleaning products. She has 2 little ones with skin issues (terrible eczema) and so she likes to use as natural as she can get, but she has found the 7th Gen just doesn't clean at all. Almost better to just use hot water.
thanks for the review! will definitely keep in mind.
we use 7th gen hand was in the citrus flavor and love it. but i have yet to use any 7th gen household cleaners.

speaking of household cleaners, has anyone tried charlie's soap, and liked it?

.... I'm pretty sure if I look closely at the hot fudge label it will say that it has corn syrup in it. Corn is a vegetable too. ....
and now you just sound like the marketing team for the high fructose corn syrup lobby.
corn syrup ain't no vegetable. it's pure sugar that has been chemically manipulated to be even worse than pure sugar. Whip
can you ask heidi to bark at you, and maybe even bite you, please?
thanks.

i'm blaming bunnies for you thinking that corn syrup counts as a vegetable.

My DS#4's bday is 12/23. When he turned one, my MIL asked what she should get him. I replied with blah blah blah but just MAKE SURE it is wrapped in birthday paper! WTF does she bring over to his birthday party?!?!?! thats right a friggin gift wrapped in Xmas paper. I went off on her like never before. I was LIVID. It is just so disrespectful to that child, he had NO choice to be born that day! but she, the elder, should have cared enough about her grandchild....grrr
YOu are such a good friend. I know that we are here to get the 'grrs' out of everyones relationships here but everytime you talk about your bff, I dislike her more laugh out loud I know that you dont tell us the lovely things she does or feels or shows you but the negitives just keep flowing.
MY DS#1 now 13 wanted to go BF shopping with me last year, I said no because I felt he wasn't BIG enough to survive being trampled or tall enough to see me over the crowd should we get seperated but if he offers this I might take him up on it seeing as how he now weighs the same as me to the 10th of a pound and is a 1/2'' taller.

So is anyone else doing Walgreens deals this week? I just figured up my 3 transactions and I will be paying $14.30 plus tax OOP. I haven't spent that much OOP in a LONG time at walgreens. I am trying to decide if it is worth it. I guess the problem I am having is that I am trying to end up with the same amount of RR as I start with, which is around $24 worth. This is what I will end up with:
14 boxes Kelloggs cereal
2 gal. milk
2 crayola markers
2 Goodys hair clips
2 pkg cottonelle TP (not sure why I think I need this as I have tons of charmin lol)
1 Keri Lotion
3 school folders

Tell me what you think. Am I paying too much OOP for this...cause well it is not free or close to it, which is what I am used to at WG. But I have not been shopping there as much and have let my RR dwindle down. Only good thing is I am in an A/C tax state so very little tax! lol

Hope everyone is having a great weekend..too stinkin hot here to do much of anything.

dazzled- you should show your ds how to do deal alerts and check all the black friday ads for stuff he wants and then have him go shopping w/ you. never too early to learn to manage your money and make it go further.

my nephew is 14, will be 15 in a couple wks. very sharp and wiser than his brother. he sells his stuff that he doesn't want anymore to his friends laugh out loud. last black friday he wanted the nba2k11 game but he didn't tell me until later that day and of course it was sold out already. so we made an agreement to shop black friday together this yr. since he is open to learning how to get the most for his money i will show him how. we all are well aware of how his mom wastes money buying so much food they can't eat. it finally sank into her head when her kids started making fun of how much bbq sauce she had in the basement pantry.

this year i will have him make a list of what he wants, go thru the ads for it and we will be standing on line at superwalmart at midnite. i've never done bf at walmart b4 so this will be a learning experience for both of us.

sil will be here from italy w/ the 2 kids and she wants an ipod so she will be standing on line w/ us unless she caved and bought it already. i just wish she would have the same attitude about buying dvds. i've told her over and over again if she would tell me which one she wants, i will get them b4 she comes and she can pay me back. last feb i took her shopping hrs b4 she left to go home and she was happy she got everything she wanted but it was so painful to watch her pay full price for glee, ugly betty, etc. esp when she complains about how expensive everything in italy is so she can't afford some stuff. i think she's already happy that it's cheaper here than italy. she just doesn't get that she could get it even cheaper if she planned a little better. she knows i will shop for her. i picked up a flip for her last yr. yesterday she said she wants a macbook but i will let dh do the shopping around for that since she already talked to him about itStick Out Tongue.
