Wal-Mart. I could go on forever. I banned them once and honestly did not step foot in the store for years. I became an avid Target shopper. And still am generally. And although I may be a bit hypocritical, I hate the conglomeration that Wal-Mart represents. I hate that they smear out small towns because 'main-street' businesses can't compete with the giant mega-store. But yet -- sometimes, you just have to go there or else spend all day store hopping. Today, for instance, Mark needed work gloves and I needed paper supplies, cat and dog food and hair color. We compromised and went to Wal-Mart. Ugh. Selfishness for our own time wins out. I suck.
And what really sucks is that they do have the cheapest prices. But what happens when you go there? I bet the same thing that happens when we go in with a LIST!! You end up with the extras -- the bold and zesty pickles, the fold up duffel bag, and the rubber spatulas. So actually we end up spending more probably that if we had gone somewhere else.
