Frugal Tuesday Tip - Speak Up


I've never been one to complain publicly about things.  Sure, at home my poor husband hears me complain non-stop about all kinds of things, but usually around others I try to keep the negative inside.  I am learning though there are times you need to speak up about things and I'm getting better at it.  Not too long ago on one of our regular shopping trips to Hy-Vee we wanted enchilada sauce, but our store was all out.  We had it on our menu plan and had to push it back a week.  The following Sunday there was only one dented can on the shelf.  We bought it, but I wasn't happy about the store not having the product 2 weeks in a row.  So I did something I've never really done and sent an email to Hy-Vee (trying not to complain too much).  The following week our cashier handed us a bag from the manager with enchilada sauce.  I definitely appreciated that my email was actually directed to the store and then to be acknowledged from the manager was nice.

While I was sending that email to Hy-Vee I realized that it was the first time I had sent anything about the store that we frequent and I had never acknowledged our favorite cashier, so at the same time I sent an email stating how much we appreciate her.  Because we typically go to the store the same day & time every week we see her every week and she has watched my children go through the check-out aisle since they were babies and enjoys talking to them.  She doesn't mind when I hand her my stack of coupons.  I found out from her that she received a $25 gift card because of that email I sent and it was the first one she had received in all of her years of service. 

So, we should speak up when we're not happy about things, but we should also let companies know when we are happy and get great service.  If you appreciate an employee let someone know!
