Returns... YUCK

So I'm a freak... Yes, I went out yesterday and attempted to return some of the gifts that were duplicates and some blankets and clothes. I was super excited that Walmart made it so easy. The lady just scanned everything, and if it rang up, I got credit on a gift card. So I got $50 there. I had $50 in gift cards, so I bought some bottles, burp rags, receiving blankets, and nursing essentials. It was really fun buying stuff for him.

Then...... I went to BRU and it didn't go so well. I told the lady I would like to return some things. She said that they will only take a return without a receipt if it is something on the registry. So I couldn't return anything! Not even the mobile that a dear friend bought that was the wrong one. I told her that the two mobile look almost exactly alike on the package, but that I got the wrong one. She talked to her manager, and both of them just sat there and shook their heads and looked at me like I was stupid. So I just walked out mad. I'm sure they didn't care. Oh well, the mobile will still look good. It's just the principle that I brought a lot of business to their store, and they could care less.

So I went to Target and bought some other things we didn't get, a swing, boppy, more burp clothes, changing pad, and other little things that somehow added up to $250.

Good news - I got the check in the mail for $230 that I overpaid the gas company! So things are working out. Kind of nice when you spend a bunch of money to get a check in the mail. And baby boy passed the NST yesterday.

I slept so bad last night. My back was really hurting. Probably the hours I spent on my feet shopping and the hours I spent working on stuff in the nursery. I think I'm going to have to force myself to rest tonight. It's so hard when I want to get stuff done to sit on my butt! But my body just can't keep up with what my mind wants to do.


  1. aww i know the feeling of wanting to do stuff but being so tired u can't. i'm sorry.. but you still have plenty of time. don't worry about.. i'm so glad you got lotsa of things. don't be silly like i was and get rid of everything b4 the next baby. then you will have nothing.lol

  2. wow - that sucks about BRU. I never had a problem with them.

    Hey - be careful with the bottles. Babies are picky. The ones I bought didn't work and I couldn't return them. Only open one at a time.

  3. We don't even have a BRU here. I hate returning things, but I'll probably have to at some point.

  4. I haven't had the pleasure or displeasure in your case of dealing with BRU, but just from your story, I think if I ever get to the point of a baby registry - I will do my best to NOT register with them! I'm sorry that happened to you and I completely understand the 'principle' frustration!! ~Maribeth

    Hang in there mamacita!
