  • Not a clue... maybe its just a woman shopping thing. They sure do know how to place things that you didn't even know you "needed"! LOL

  • Hmmm. Good question. And while I don't have an answer for it, as I've been guilty of it in the past, I do have another Walmart- related question:Why is it when you go to Walmart for 2 things or 200, it's inevitable that they will have either stopped carrying an item or be out of one if not more?!

  • Keep the receipt and take most of it back tomorrow. You said it was crap. Your family works hard for $200, don't blow it on crap.

  • lol...I did get the things I needed, plus other crap.

    They have some cute Valentine's Day gifts, cheap...so I bought my DD and DH something. Then I did go grocery shopping...so that was the majority of the spending.

  • That's why I will only go with the money I need so I don't shop for extras
