I hate shopping at Walmart but will do it when I need a variety of non-grocery items.

Otherwise, to save money, I take out the Thursday newspaper which has all of the weekend flyers and will my shopping at two grocery stores and hold off on purchases that are not on sale. WMT's prices are everyday lowish but you can beat the prices easily if you shop around.

Yeah, I do my own grocery shop. I cook too.

I buy groceries, stop at Subway, buy some clothes/shoes, get auto parts, and get a haircut all in one building. What more do you want?



Some Walmart's have autocenters where you can get
oil changed and buy tires.

Yup. Or you can just buy the tires, oil and filter and do it yourself.
And buy wipers, replacement bulbs and wiring, speakers, and an entire radio.
Or a hitch kit, tie down straps, and chain for towing.
And an entire fishing set up from rod to reel to line to lures and even live bait.
While your there, get a gun and some ammo.
And some tile and grout to fix that bathroom. Don't forget some pipe and sink accessories.
And curtains, a bedspread, and new sheet set, since you're spiffying up the house.
Stop by for some topsoil, flowers, trees, flowers and paver stones. Might as well do the outside, too!
You'll pass the toiletries, so get some soap, shampoo, and Q-tips, since the above will make you dirty.
And wifey likes when you get dirty, so grab some cologne and condoms while you're there.
Grab some Matchbox cars, legos, Transformers, and board games to keep junior busy.
Don't forget an iPod, some burnable DVDs, and a 32G micro SD card, in case you want to record this all.
And a wireless router, a new modem, and a big flatscreen for viewing.
Fly through the clothes section and grab some shirts, underpants, and sweatpants, since you're already there.
Milk and beer, can't forget that. Might as well grab some cheese, lobster, bologna, and a giant box of Fruit Loops, too.
A big bag of candy, a new box of pens, and a birthday card for grandma.
And since it caught your eye, a new playground set and a riding lawnmower. It's so cheap, you can't afford to not buy it!

I Love Walmart!

About 15 years ago, my ex-wife and I were shopping at Costco and filled our cart with a bunch of stuff. We figured the bill would come out to over $300. We were at the back of the check out line. We looked at the pile and walked out, as we didn't "need" any of it.

When you say that "she's on" Walmart's board. What does that mean?

It means that for 6 years Hillary was on the
board of directors at Walmart, duh. Hill and
Bill have always been deeply involved with
Walmart, why wouldn't they support her.

This is why they love the Clinton's:

The Rose Law Firm, where Hillary was a key partner, performed the legal work for the Waltons' expansion and operations. That included the huge importations from China all the while advertising their "U.S.-made" goods. Walmart has emerged unscathed from all sorts of unsavory practices, no doubt thanks in large part to good lawyering.

So when you say "She's On" you really mean that "She Was On" sometime during this past millennium?
