It's about time.

Many of you that can relate to this. Working long hours at your career. Raising your families. Buying a home and paying all the bills related to being homeowners and parents. We're now retired and don't need all that work and expense. Now "It's about time" to follow our dreams.

Overcharge Refunds.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

After having another wonderful night’s sleep we managed to sleep until nearly 8:30 this morning. While watching The Weather Network as we ate breakfast they forecasted rain for our area so we made plans to get caught up on things around the apartment. The first thing was to get caught up on reading E-mails and the morning RV Blogs we follow. 

Next I made the necessary phone call to Bell informing them that we’d no longer be using their Internet services which meant we no longer needed a house line as well. Last evening the tech from the cable company installed their modem which will cost us less than the bell system and we will no longer be paying for a phone line we only use for the Internet. That will save us nearly a hundred dollars a month alone. 

Kathy started doing her bookkeeping on the spreadsheet that she uses for keeping track of our budget. Due to the power being shut off yesterday in the building so the electrical could be upgraded she had a small pile of entries to make. In the process of reviewing the receipts she noticed a couple of overcharges. We were double charged for two different items and they were both from different Walmart stores in the area. Kathy normally always double checks the receipts before we leave the stores but since we’d been rushing around this week she hadn’t done it. 

Once we’d finished lunch we were on the road visiting those two Walmart stores again. At each of the service desks I had no problem getting our payments reimbursed to our debit card. One associate said they’d had a lot of those double billings lately. Now imagine lots of people don’t double check their bills and could be paying way more than they should. One of our items was a gift and was not cheap. An expensive mistake! 

For supper tonight we enjoyed a tasty Hawaiian pizza grilled on the Weber on low and slow. Having taken it out of the freezer an hour before hand it only took fifteen minutes on the grill. As of this writing we haven’t had any rain today. 

Kathy and I would like to welcome our latest blog followers John and Bridget from the blog Travels of John and Bridget. They’ve been Full Timing with their dog Fred since April 1st 2010 traveling all over the US. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.

How many politicians does it take to change a light bulb?

Four! One to change it! The other three to deny it!


  1. We always check our receipts before leaving the store as well. And we have since found out that if you find that you are charged more than what the item shelf price is at Walmart be sure to tell them that you get them item free as long as you tell them before they try to refund you the difference. This summer alone we have had two items free because of this but they won't tell you about getting the item for free, you have to mention it to them first.

  2. We always take the time to check our receipts, many time have found mistakes.
