My Shopping Week Mar 29 – Apr 4

The first week of the month is always a “small” one for me πŸ™‚

I spent $34.82 at HyVee. I went to a HyVee that is moving so they had a few extra sales. The peppermint ice cream was on sale for $0.74!! I bought three gallons (well I guess they aren’t gallons anymore).

It was a pretty good trip. I have $165.18 left in my April budget!

ING Direct is a risky bank i have learned.
they routinely close accounts for no reason and when
they do, they first block your login before
notifying you. then they refuse to provide
a current statement for the current period until
the end of the quarter. my sister’s account
had sever transaction withdrawing from the linkedx
accounts various fees for the closure that added up to over 300 dollars.

Way to go. Glad someone went to Hy-Vee this week. I am hot and cold on them. If you don’t catch sales you will way over pay there compared to other stores locally. I will say that they have been better recently with some great sales, particularly on meat.

@ Michelle and Cadance – the ice cream deal was awesome! The regular prices at HyVee are high, but Price Chopper is usually even higher!! Once I learned how to coupon shop I do a lot better. They do seem to be getting better. The double ad thing they do now is frustrating though (they have an ad for online and “regular”, which means I have to go through both – why not include everything in one ad!! They advertise about 90% of the products in both ads, but you have to go through two 15 page ads to see the few products that are extra πŸ™

@ Anonymous – I don’t know what your experience is, but I have had an account with ING for well over 5 years and I’ve never had a problem. My mortgage is with ING, my car loan (when I had one) was with them, I have CD’s with them, and my stock account is through their partner, Sharebuilder. They have been wonderful!

Banks don’t want to close accounts for no reason – they want the accounts so they can stay in business. I get a statement every month (not quarter).

Whenever you sign up for a bank though you should read through the fees carefully. I’ve never been hit with one from ING, but all banks have them and I’m sure they do to.
