With the french bread, there was no brand. She almost didn't let me match it with the Walmart brand of french bread, but I smiled and said please, so she let me.
With the milk, sour cream, and spaghetti sauce, on deals to meals it said “WF” which I believe is Western Family brand. I mentioned this to the lady at the register because she said the brands need to match up. Here's our conversation went:
I don't know if that's actually true, but she said it and I didn't question her!”
So I think what she meant by “Yup, that is us” is that store-brand to store-brand is considered the same. This has been the case with 100% of the other checkers I've had. So my advice is, give it a shot! It really depends on the checkers sometimes.
You have inspired me lately. Thought I would send along a few photos. Perhaps you have done this already. If not, you'll surely be proud of me!I went to Costco the other day. It is my habit to always get a chicken which I bring home and immediately de-bone and throw in the fridge. I am also in the habit of eating an apple every day. So, you can imagine: nearly every trip I am throwing the chicken container and apple container in the recycle bin.
I then flipped it over placing it in the black tray that the chicken sits in.
I filled up the clear top with potting soiled and threw in some seeds. The black bottom tray is now used to catch extra water. I used a chopstick from some old take-out and simply adhered the seed packet to the chopstick (in my case, I used sticky dots from my scrapbook supplies) and stuck it in the dirt!Now for the apple container. I simply filled each round “cup” that held the apples with dirt, filled with seed and closed the top. Voila: instant little tiny greenhouse!I'll attach some photos just in case you would like to share!Thanks a million!Bex
