  5. Organic bananas - SCORE!!

    by , 02-04-2009 at 12:50 AM
    I mentioned in my thread on the grocery budget reduction challenge that I was overcharged for organic bananas. Well, I went back to the store today with my receipt, and they gave me the WHOLE price back!! So I'm $7.62 in the black AND I got the 7 lbs of bananas for free!

    (Kudos to Bel-Air, btw, for fantastic customer service!)
