Day 20 Gratitude Challenge

Today I am thankful that my son works at Albertson’s grocery store.  He has been working there since the beginning of August. Today, it came in handy for grocery shopping for our family.

I usually shop on the base at the Commissary.  But earlier this week , I had a phone call from my son’s supervisor.  She just wanted to let me know that Employee appreciation days were going to be Friday and Saturday and that he would get an extra 10% off on top of his discount.  So that meant 25% off of the brands that he gets a discount on.  I decided to shop at Albertson’s this week for our groceries and holiday food.  I think I made a good choice. When I got to the register and they rang everything up, the total was over $130, then the discounts started coming off, by the time I was done I had spent $98, and that included a turkey! Matthew’s supervisor checked me out and I told her thanks for the call because Matthew had not told me about being able to get the extra discount.  She said “No problem, we figure the minor kids don’t do the shopping so they usually don’t let their parents know”.

So I am thankful that my son works at Albertson’s, that they like him as a worker (handy to have the supervisor check you out) and that Albertson’s is generous in letting members of the employee’s household use the discount.

What are you thankful for today? Head on over to Brenda’s Garden of Learning and read all the stories of gratitude as we head into Thanksgiving week.

Wow, over $30 savings -- that's great! It's also great that your son's learning responsibility while he's still young. Thanks for your visit today! Blessings to you.

It's a blessing any time you can save money on groceries. Glad that your son is able to learn the value of hard work (at Albertson's) and help you get some great discounts in the process. ;)
