Groc shopping at Wal-mart/Target Superstores is a bad thing

February 20th, 2008 at 11:34 am

Yesterday I went to Walmart Super store (I really dislike this store and I usually go to the Walmart supermarket but I needed a bath rug) and I spent $24 on unnecessary items. I bought DD2 two pairs of shoes the ballet style for school at $7 a pr and a pretty tank top for $7. Neither were necessary but I know she mentioned she wanted more shoes like her one pair and I knew she would like the top. I have decided that from now on I will NOT grocery shop at the superstores.
Yesterday I went out front and saw the weirdest thing. People were in the middle of our road surrounding a lime green chair. I then noticed that an elderly lady was sitting in the chair and realized it was my neighbor. I went over to her (noone knew her because they live too far down the road). She had fallen in the street and scraped up her knees and when the paramedics came they said she broke her shoulder as well. I went to her house and got her purse and locked up her house and called her son. She is 90 years old and lives alone but she is very able bodied and independant. I pray she is ok.

    My best friend loves target superstore and swears their prices are the lowest around - i am contemplating going there next week, but only with a menu plan and detailed list. Hope your neighbor is OK!

    Target superstore does have good prices. They have good printable coupons too. Right now they have $1 off vegetables (not organic) and broccolli and cauliflower are on sale for $1.50 so I bought cauliflower for .50. I just need to be strong and stay away from the other side :-)
    I have tried to reach my neighbor at the hospital but they say they have no record of her. I know she is there so I do not know what the problem is. I will call her son later to find out her status.

    oh, wow! how lucky that you went by!...I'm sure she and her son appreciate what you did!...

    We have one of those super stores (actually a Walmart operating under a regional name) here in ES...I always stay away from the temptation aisles (clothes, shoes, toys, electronics, entertainment, beauty products) and stick to the food and cleaning supply ones! LOL!

    This is right up there with Costco, BJ's and etc. I stick to a list, but your take the DH in and he fills the cart with things that we don't usually buy; this defeats the purpose.

    I love grocery shopping at WalMart Superstores also. I too have purchased items I did not intend to. I realized early on to go with a budget and only purchase the items I needed. I am disabled and find their associates extreamly helpfull. Now if we could all be so disaplined as to what we need and when we need it, would'nt that be a God send. Blessings to your neighbor and yourself for being their for her!
