Guest Post: Dealing with Unhappy Cashiers

Guest Post: Dealing with unhappy cashiers!

Sometimes when I shop, I run into cashiers that are not too happy to see my mile high pile of coupons. I have a few things I do to make the experience a good one. We can make checking our all of our coupons enjoyable for the cashier. A few tips and a friendly smile can go a long way!
I have cashiers and managers at every store that I am friendly with. When I shop, I enjoy talking to people and making friends.

Tip 1: If it’s a store you love and they are always good to you, let the managers know! Fill out those surveys and fill them out positively. It’ll take you an extra minute, but the stores appreciate it and they will remember you.
Tip 2: Talk to the cashier as you check out. Ask them how their day is; fill in little friendly chit chat. They are people too and honestly, they get flustered by long lines (just like customers do). Make their experience checking you and all of your coupons out a happy one.
Tip 3: Have your coupons all ready to go when you get to the register.
Tip 4: I hand over my coupons to the cashier one at a time. I have a few reasons I do this.
1. Sometimes, I have a coupon in my pile that I did not use, if I didn’t buy the item, I just place that coupon to the side and can move onto the next. This saves time from the register beep, and then the realization that I didn’t purchase the item.
2. On occasion, I have had coupons that did not get put into my purchase, if I hand over the coupon one at a time; I know every coupon has come off of the purchase.
Tip 5: Don’t use coupons that are expired at stores that don’t take expireds and don’t use coupons on wrong items. Sure, we all make mistakes, but stores will know if you are always using wrong coupons and will remember that. The cashiers can get in trouble for this.
Some cashiers do get flustered by all of the coupons. Honestly, it adds time to the check out process. If you make the time they are spending with you pleasant, all the coupons aren’t so bad.
It’s a fun game for me to watch my hundred dollar purchases go down to practically nothing. I get pretty excited, honestly, the cashiers do get excited for you too! Tell them what you are doing, get them involved. Everyone is happy to see another person happy. Get them in on your fun!

Guest Post: Top 5 Reasons I Love the Farmer's Market

Top 5 Reasons I love the Farmer's Market:

1) Better Quality - By far, my most favorite thing about the farmer's market is the quality of the items available! When selling face-to-face, producers want to put their best products before you, so that you'll remember their items and come back, time after time. Most often, farmers only supply the best at the markets, and you can take your pick of their selection! Not to mention, their direct competition is just one table down, so everyone is competing for your business - meaning they put out the best! Since these farmers grow it, pick it, can it, bake it, etc themselves, you're more likely to find items FRESH and with less preservatives in them (for items like jelly, pies, etc). Because they don't have to worry about a long shelf life, these products can be picked at 5am, at the peak of their ripeness, and sold to you just hours later, to be served on your table in less amount time than it would take for a delivery truck to have it on the shelves of a Walmart! Looking for all-natural or organic products? Ask around, you're bound to find plenty of items available at the farmer's market!

2) Lower Prices - Cutting out the middle man means cutting the cost, and competing in friendly, close quarters means that the prices are not only competitive as well, but are "honest". You're more likely to find a much better cost per item, per pound, per bushel, etc at a farmer's market because of the direct sales relationship (farmer to you, instead of farmer to Walmart to you), but also because there aren't "additional fees" to factor in - no sales tax, prices rounded to a whole amount, etc. Of course, the face-to-face factor also plays in, and at some locations, you might have the ability to haggle a bit :)

3) More Selection - Another one of my favorite things about the farmer's market is the selection!! Not only can you find a wide variety of in-season produce, baked goods, canned/jarred goods, etc, but you can also find a vast selection of the same items from table to table (booth to booth, etc). So, if you're not crazy about the summer squash that Farmer A is offering, just walk a few feet to check out Farmer B's. If you're a regular, you'll eventually find which farmer's produce the "best" of each item. For example, at our market, all of the corn offered is good, but there is just something extra great about the corn that one farmer has to offer, so we only buy from him (plus, he's funny, and always supplies a bit of entertainment). Ultimately, this leads back to better quality and lower prices, too!

4) Supports Local Economy - I don't think I need to elaborate much on this one :). Obviously, buying from local farmers supports the local economy, stimulating your own area's financial well being. So many of these local farmers also support the local economy to support their farms, so the cycle continues. This process is best not only financially, but also for the environment!

5) Great Atmosphere - I love the atmosphere, the community, that takes place at local farmer's markets! The farmers (and others) interacting directly with their consumers, the Amish bakers (at least here), the local vendors (mmm, I can smell the gyros now), the local bands playing, and all the members of the community shopping around in perfect harmony! I just love it!!

So, look around, see if there is a farmer's market in your area! Ours runs every Thursday through the summer and fall months, in the square, downtown Wilkes Barre, PA. If you're ever headed down there, let me know and I'll be happy to chat over a bag of fresh cherries & some freshly squeezed lemonade :).
