    @Lyssia510 -I was thinking to mention to see if your local high school's student council or boys or girls clubs might be doing any drives for supplies in the community or for a particular cause (ie Toy Drive). Also to see if the school has a resource centre/service to assist single parents or in-need students (like those living on their own)-your supplies likely would get accepted. Usually school boards have a foundation that might give a small budget to address needy students and one or two dedicated staffers to administer help/supplies to all high schools in the area. But sometimes there are appeals to the community to help donate sports socks/laundry detergent/school supplies.

    In our town it is difficult to donate period. Our food bank only accepts donations between 11 am and 1 pm on Thursdays, one grocery store in town only accepted donations of their pre package food bank bags and the other removed their donation bin due to people stealing from it.

    The local women's shelter will only accept certain items ie pasta must be spiral or spaghetti and they make no exceptions I had 30 boxes of Fettuccine I wanted to donate and my donation was denied as it is not on the approved list. Shampoo and Conditioner must be large size which I thought meant no trial size but no they only accept the large pump style bottles so again my donation was denied.

    Only donation I make now is toys to the bin at work which is through a local church.

    Gosh, I have to wonder why. No wonder they're desperate for help when they refuse help. Crazy.

    Expired pre-paid long distance card. Did the $7.21 from summer get used up before expiry or was that just profit for Bell?

Go to her house to grab her box, take her and my kids back to Rogers, they no longer have any hd boxes 30 mins later. Get them to call around and put an HD box on hold for me at a store in my city. Take my grandma home, pack up the kids, go to the store in my city, confirmed I was getting a hd box not a pvr four times.
    Drive back to my grandmas today, try to hook it up, it will not work. Call tech support, get some genius that insists I cannot have the cable cable going into the box, and all I have to do is remove the cable and unplug the box and it will work. Hang up, play around with it some more, get it to work(with the cable feed hooked up) with a box not authorized message. Call back, find out I was given a pvr instead of a regular hd box. Now I have to go back to the store to exchange it for a regular box. Get to the store with my three year old(left my grandma at her house). Only to find out the guy I talked to right before I went, removed me as an authorized level one, and I can't do the exchange now. Get my grandma on the phone to reauthorize me and finally get the box exchanged, get it set up and find out she doesn't even have cable now. Had to call Rogers again to get her cable fixed.
    I'm dreading having to explain this bill to her with all the screw ups and partial charges on it.

    Rant at myself!!!

    On a recent Shoppers trip, I purchased a SDM gift card to ensure I earned points on the card, and then used the gift card towards my purchases which also earned points. I forgot the most important thing...I should have used my PC World Elite card to buy the gift card as I would have earned 3x the points. I keep forgetting that the PC World Elite offers 3x the points at Shoppers.

    It's bugging me so much.. I had to write a rant at myself.

    I used my Walmart CC (at least it earned 1%), but still it could have been 3x SDM points. Trying to get more points for the next optimal Samsung Tab 10.1 deal. I got one for myself this summer @ $69 after mega redemption and sale price, and really liked the gadget so wanted another for family member. Whew, it felt good to rant... now I can move on to see if I can score Almay.

    You dont get 3x sdm pts. You get 3x pcpoints for spending money at sdm/loblaws banner stores.

    Oops, thanks for clarifying. I'm getting all muddled with the various perks.

    Even better, I didn't miss out on SDM points. Good!
