Among other things, one quirk I inherited from my mom was my aversion to return lines. Sure, there’s really nothing to fear about going to customer service and returning a purchase that just didn’t work out, but somehow it made me uncomfortable. In most cases I’d rather just suck it up, consider it my bad for buying it, and call it a loss. Maybe I just felt wrong making the retailers deal with my poorly repackaged item or just preferred to avoid any debate over whether it met their policy. But then I met Sherry, the self-proclaimed Queen Of Returns, and my relationship with those once dreaded lines completely changed. Sherry has the exact opposite

You may have already heard that True Value is back this year with their DIY Blog Squad. But this time around YHL ain’t on it. As entertaining as it might be to have some big dramatic story behind our disappearance from the always-fun and always-creative lineup of bloggers, there really isn’t one.
