My Love Affair With Wal-Mart

It's here!  It's finally here!  The grand opening of Super Wal-Mart a mere ten minutes from my house is this weekend!

I can't begin to explain how incredibly excited I am.  You see, I drive 25 minutes each way to do my grocery shopping at Super Wal-Mart every other weekend.  Because that's the closest Super Wal-Mart near our home.  The commute alone adds an additional hour to my grocery shopping experience every two weeks - it's crazy!

But you simply cannot beat Super Wal-Mart's prices on groceries - so I make the drive - because I'm cheap and I *refuse* to pay almost double at our local grocer. 

But as of tomorrow, that 25 minute drive is a thing of the past.  Now I can save money, gas and time!  Ooohhh...I'm so excited!

Plus they are opening the Super Wal-Mart in a very ritzy area of town - so it is going to be very nice.  It's like my wildest dreams are coming true!

Here's hoping they have some amazing grand opening sales going on! 

Is it sad that I am so stoked about grocery shopping tomorrow?!?!

Ha! You're too funny! I agree with you on refusing to pay double at the Grocery store. Enjoy your shorter shopping trip!

Haha, not sad at all. I love grocery shopping. We have a Wal-Mart superstore in our town and it's fantastic and so much more reasonably priced. Yay! Post about any exciting deals. :)

That's awesome! Even better that it's in a great area so you don't have to deal with "the people of wal-mart" haha! Super Wal-mart is the best! It's like one stop shopping. There's nothing they don't have :) Don't spend all your money there now though haha.

My husband and I used to HATE Walmart's in Cali, but since moving to FL they're the best. We go every week after church cause there's a fancy shmancy one right next to it, so it works out well. Happy shopping!

Aly @ Analyze This said...

Haha!! No, I would be excited too!

I grocery shop at Wal-mart as well and I see a HUGE difference (like 50 bucks) in savings from my local grocer to Wally World!! :)

Thats so funny, hope it turns out to be really nice! I love Super-Walmart because of their low prices, but always have to go alone because my fiance hates the crowds!

Jamie said...

Haha yay, that's exciting! There is a new Super Walmart near me now in a very nice area and it's amazing. Especially compared to ever other Walmart I've ever been in! Happy shopping!

Oh my goodness I despise Walmart! I seriously hate that place! The sad part is, I drive by it every single day now, so I feel guilty not getting my groceries there. I am going to have to check it out, if they are cheaper!

Ms. J said...

Love super wal-mart!! They really are the cheapest! There are no super ones close to me anymore :(

Awww.... that is too cute. I love how excited you are about Wal-Mart. Shows what kind of snob I am! I should count my blessings!

Not sad at all! I LOVE having a Wal Mart less than a mile from us. Seriously, that's one of the reasons we picked this spot to build on!

Brittany Ann said...

I hear ya. When they finally opened a Super Wallie in our old town, we rejoiced.

Mrs. Pick said...
