The Hell that is Walmart…

March 30, 2009 at 5:56 pm (Daily Ramblings)

Ok…so admittedly I was once deeply in love with everything that is Wal-Mart. I loved the deals the crowds and mastering my way through the hour long check-out lines. I lived and breathed everything Wal-Mart…”Hey Courtney where did you buy (insert any random item)?” “WALMART!!!” This was my typical response.

Lately I have felt as though having to go to Wal-Mart is a death sentence and I do ANYTHING to get out of it…and I do mean anything! I began to dread the parking lot horror show, the battle with the crowds, and the old man accidentally grabbing my ass in the check-out line because he wouldn’t think of backing up in the line! Which meant I had to find a different supermarket to go to every month for groceries. I not only found an AWESOME place that I can always find a parking spot, always find a cart, and the crowd is NOTHING compared to Wal-Mart! (Hey I consider not having to flip someone off in Wal-Mart a great shopping day) I SAVED a TON of money!! I go grocery shopping once a month now and can get everything I need for a cheaper price, and because I do NOT want to go to Wal-Mart very often, I find that I don’t binge shop and over-spend on stupid things that I don’t need!! YAY ME! So all in all I wanted to share the good news, that I dont’ have to battle my demon named “Wal-Mart” any longer! The other grocery store is Price Chopper…but I don’t think it is a national grocer! SORRY!

    […] Right about the time that the economy started taking a nose dive into hell and gas prices were continuously soring, I landed a great job! I was once month away from graduating with my Associates degree and I started two weeks before graduation! Needless to say, I began getting a paycheck every two weeks! Up until that point my caring and wonderful fiance was taking care of himself and me in our first apartment until I graduated college. Once my paychecks started coming in we were able to pay off bills, and I was able to get a brand new car!!! We go out to eat every Friday, I do have to say that we both are coupon and sale freaks! We rarely by anything that isn’t at a discounted price, and I usually shout from the heavens about our good deals! Like recently when we switched grocery stores posted here!! […]
