The last thing you want to do after finishing your grocery shopping is to fill out a customer feedback report for the grocery store even if there are perks involved. I’m here to tell you that if you do participate in customer feedback that the results will come back to you in the form of riches. A couple of years back my wife took the time to fill out an online customer survey for Giant Tiger after a positive experience. The survey also offered a monthly prize although my wife was more interested in sharing how impressed she was with the service she was given by the lovely cashier who was absolutely pleasant. The odds of winning a prize based out of all the Giant Tiger stores was slim. We received a phone call one late afternoon to be told that it was Giant Tiger and that […]

Italian Roasted Red Pepper, Ham & Brie Sandwich http://yeassaey.com/2016/04/10/easy-lunch-roasted-red-pepper-ham-brie-sandwich/ http://yeassaey.com/2016/04/10/easy-lunch-roasted-red-pepper-ham-brie-sandwich/#comments Sun, 10 Apr 2016 09:38:35 +0000 http://yeassaey.com/?p=25154 EASY LUNCH RECIPE: ROASTED RED PEPPER SANDWICH STUFFED WITH BRIE, HAM AND A PESTO MAYONNAISE   Forget about the boring ham and cheese or the peanut butter and jam sandwich you threw together just to get something in your gob. Feast your eyes on this gorgeous roasted red pepper sandwich. I know… doesn’t it look delicious? It was! I’m a huge sandwich lover so when my wife suggested we make a roasted red pepper sandwich stuffed with triple brie, ham and a pesto mayo I was up for her sandwich spread idea. My wife is one of those people who comes up with odd mixes of food but I always taste everything. The last sandwich I tested that she told me was amazing turned out to be peanut butter and banana with honey which I wasn’t a huge fan of. I like peanut butter but only inside cookies or other baked treats. I didn’t grow up on the stuff like she did although our son seems to love eating peanut butter by the spoonful. Luncheon meats and cheeses on the other hand, I ate plenty of so I knew I was safe with this roasted red pepper stuffed sandwich recipe […]

Spring Cleaning Parents Team Up Early To Save Avoidable Home Repairs : The Saturday Weekend Review #167 http://yeassaey.com/2016/04/09/spring-cleaning-parents-team-up-early-to-save-avoidable-home-repairs/ http://yeassaey.com/2016/04/09/spring-cleaning-parents-team-up-early-to-save-avoidable-home-repairs/#comments Sat, 09 Apr 2016 09:40:41 +0000 http://yeassaey.com/?p=25123 DON’T PUT OFF WHAT YOU CAN DO TODAY FOR TOMORROW   Spring cleaning is a must for our family and something the wife and I have done every year since we bought our house back in 2009. Cleaning the house inside and out after a harsh winter is not appealing but many of us have had all winter to wind up the motor for these Spring cleaning chores. In 2009 we were dual-income homeowners without a child and we pretty much had all the spare time in the world to keep our home pristine looking. Most times people would compliment us on how tidy and clean our house was and thought it looked magazine ready. Although we chuckled when those compliments came in these days we’d LOVE if just one person would compliment our toy-ridden house that has been taken over by a 19 month old “Wreck it Ralph”. He contributes to 99% of the disaster around this house and thinks it’s hilarious. We do too in a parenting kind of way, lol. As a husband and father who works 6 days a week at 2 jobs and blogs I have a pretty tight schedule to fill these days. What […]

3 Budget Negotiations That Saved Us Money : Our March 2016 Budget Review http://yeassaey.com/2016/04/07/budget-negotiations/ http://yeassaey.com/2016/04/07/budget-negotiations/#respond Thu, 07 Apr 2016 12:01:53 +0000 http://yeassaey.com/?p=25101 YOUR MONEY WON’T WORK BY ITSELF SO GIVE IT A PUSH   Treat your finances like you own a company and you are the CEO. Budget negotiations should be part of everyone’s financial plan not just the government and business owners. You may be working for someone else making them rich but when it comes to your money there are ways to achieve the same successes but on a personal level.  It’s amazing how many people take their budget for granted and accept the bills they are given instead of putting the green light on budget negotiations. You’ve worked hard for your money now make your money work for you. Don’t let your cash float away without seeing how much you can save. You don’t have to be an outspoken customer to get a better deal. Before you attack (take that with a grain of salt) you must be armed with details and the outcome you’d like from your budget negotiations. If you need to balance your budget but you’re off by $50 try to see if you can get your bundled-telecommunications services lowered. Make a deal. The top way to trim budget expenses is by negotiating the interest rates […]

The Most Annoying Situations When Buying Groceries : The Grocery Game Challenge 2016 #1 Apr 4-10 http://yeassaey.com/2016/04/05/annoying-situations-buying-groceries/ http://yeassaey.com/2016/04/05/annoying-situations-buying-groceries/#comments Tue, 05 Apr 2016 11:29:02 +0000 http://yeassaey.com/?p=25076 SURVEY SAYS…GROCERY SHOPPING FAILS   Buying groceries is a must for just about everyone so unless you have your groceries delivered or rely on a personal shopper you are in charge of the shopping cart. As someone who doesn’t mind buying groceries from a few competitive stores in our area I notice a difference between grocery chains and when it comes to customers we all fail at something on my grocery shopping annoyance list below. Luckily when buying groceries many of us have the option of where we want to shop but for those of you who may live in a small town or who are without transportation or limited transportation you may have select stores to give your business too. Sometimes we have to take the good with the bad when buying groceries because funds are limited and honestly no one store is perfect and never will be. What we can change is the way we are as customers and voice our concerns so the grocery chains and even small indpendent grocery stores hear what the customers need. I’m not that guy who will fill out a customer survey right now because I’m swamped with work but I have […]
