one measly week.
that’s how long i held out before i was sucked back over to walmart.
and it’s all the fault of jersey shore. this past week i have been practically obsessing over the gtl tshirt:
this week, when the thursday flyers came out, i couldn’t wait to page through the one for walmart! here’s my shopping list method:
yes, it’s not pretty, yes, it is cumbersome, but it works for me. [sidenote: vegetables and coffee are still soooo ick-sounding that i did not take advantage of the last few items on that patchwork list].
so, once again, it was a rainy sunday, but this time i arrived late afternoon. the parking lot was not at all full! i had thought sunday late aft might be a little zany. but either the rain kept shoppers away, or i am wondering if this walmart, being so new, has not yet become a destination station for hordes of people.
lessons learned from last week:
i have only one crossword left to do in my current book, so i hit up the magazine area, first. why not take advantage of this…
…to get this!
[i sincerely hope these are easy. my last book lied to me as the puzzles were challenging, not
mindless mildly mentally stimulating].
next, i moved on to the grocery area, and spent more time going up and down the aisles, this week.
while i skirted around the veggies, avacados are not currently offensive, and also not a standard veg:
i found a new cereal!!!
[unfortunately, i've already tried the cereal and it tastes like what you'd expect a $3 bag of cereal from walmart to taste like...i'll bury these tiny squares in with some other types, and all will be fine].
just another example of the mega-savings possible – almond milk. the walmart price:
unfortunately, they were out of stock. but since i’ll likely be back
later today very soon, at least i know it’s available, here.
as i headed to the checkout, i had to chuckle. look at my cart:
now this week, i could have gotten away with just my arms or a basket.
have to say, the sheer size of this walmart still rather awes me. i can just imagine what newly-arrived immigrants think of the whole walmart concept. if it boggles my mind, to some extent, it must be beyond comprehension for someone who has never before experienced shopping at a mega-store like this.
what good bargains did you find during the past week? back-t0-school sales are everywhere! good time to stock up on paper products!
gtl didn’t wait long to get outta the house:
then it was on to yoga class. jersey shore tshirt doing yoga. yup.
eta: on sunday eve, a tornado ripped through my beloved town of goderich.
i was so very sad to hear this news. wishing all those impacted strength and courage.
