Frugality: Food for Thought

Jenny over at SouthernSavers gave us some real food for our thoughts this week on supercenters (Wal-mart).

Check it out HERE.

Many people are confusing her argument though. Keep in mind as you read this that she is refering to people who use good couponing habits, which is buying a stockpile of things at their lowest price with coupons. This is not for people who just walk into the store each week and by whatever they want. But even then I can tell you Walmart is not always the best price, or worth the hassle. Be forewarned that using coupons at Walmart can be one of the worst experiences of your life, unless of course you like to feel like you just stole something.

I honestly cannot stand going in there. It's always crowded, it's usually dirty, most things are out of stock (but yet they are always stocking when I am there?), check-out lanes are always long, and customer service stinks. With all that being said, I'd rather reward a store that cares for their customers (and their employees, vendors, etc.) even if it costs a little more.

That's just my 2 cents.
