Last night we won the Frozen Entree Lottery.
Every day I bring a frozen Lean Cuisine meal for lunch at work. It's my way of being able to say I'm on a diet without actually having any kind of a hard and fast plan that I stick to. A couple of the girls that I work with are on the same "plan" and we're always comparing meals and how much they cost. Jesse and I have been shopping pretty faithfully at Harmon's because they have good meat and produce and we like that they're kind of a local chain… something about supporting local businesses… blah blah blah. We finally broke down and went to Walmart because it turns out Harmon's has been screwing us (against our will). I understand Walmart's evil and taking over the world and everything, but we don't really make enough money to live by those kinds of morals and ideals and such.
Jesse and I stood in the frozen entrees aisle, mouths agape, at the wonder and awe that is Walmart. Not only were the prices WELL below what we've been paying at Harmon's (like buy 3 for the price of 2), but the selection was GINORMOUS. I understand you now, Utah Mormons. I get it. And I'm sorry for judging you so harshly. Walmart is indeed the land of (discounted) milk and honey.
I felt dirty, even if my wallet was totally happy.
This is the problem with having standards. You just end up feeling dirty or ripped off. Just be careful, not everything is cheaper at Walmart. I think dairy products always are.
I know. I tried not to go to WalMart. I REALLY DID! I made it half way through the mission then decided okay, stuff is way too cheap and missionaries are too poor, but when I am home, no way! It is local stores for me!
But the thing is… I just can’t. I try at times, but my stand is just not in the budget anymore. My dad still won’t go to WalMart and that’s cool, but, well… I need cheaper things.
I’m a guilty wal-mart shopper. Its the cheapest out here for toiletries etc. The only thing that stinks is that there’s no super-walmarts close by.
I don’t even understand why you cared before. It’s all about me. Or you. Screw everyone else and save some money.
Holla Holla Amen! For you have see the light and it flashes “SALE.”
And you sought to refuse the truth, there for it pleaseth you not.
And it came to pass that ye had hardened your heart unto that which is good.
But yea the truth findeth a place within your hearts and found rest within.
And it bringeth peace to your wallet and nourishment to your belly.
And it is good.
Let the church say Amen.
You know, if people didnt shop at WalMart, then Target would be the big box everyone hates, and if not them, someone else.
I dont really feel guilty. After all, werent supermarkets the reason for people not going to local butchers for meat, produce stands for veggies, and candy stores for sweets?
Supermarkets are the original WalMart.
I shall now take my super discounted soap box purchased in the $5 bin, near the AC/DC towels and scuttle away.
And this is why Wal-Mart is going to take over the ENTIRE WORLD.
It will be a discounted world with falling prices and smiley faces slashing numbers with cartoon swords.
All I can say is that I am a total Walmart whore and dang proud of that. I don’t shop there until odd hours. That way I don’t have to mingle with some of the freak show shoppers that they seem to attract.
Wal*Mart is why terrorists don’t like Americans.
