Don't be afraid to return items to the grocery store that are bad or spoil quickly. For example, if you buy a big block of cheese and it starts growing mold after a day or two in the fridge, it probably was not packaged properly. Even if you used some of the cheese, it still can and should be returned for a new product. Just be sure, to keep your grocery receipts handy so you have a proof of purchase.
Especially with the price of milk these days, this is always good advice. We've done this, esp. for milk. We just put the receipt up on the fridge w/ a magnet. (02/27/2006)
I've never had any problems returning bad produce like bananas that never ripen properly, even without a receipt. Department managers want to keep their customers happy and aren't going to squabble over whether or not you kept the receipt. (02/28/2006)
