Life without Walmart...

It has been almost 3 weeks since my last trip to Wal-mart. My life is just as rich and I think the bank account is even richer! haha. I honestly think I spend LOTS more money there on all the
'bargains' I find. Plus, our new Wal-mart is a HAUL - it's not so much the extra ga$ but the time it takes to get out there. I have been taking care of my shopping at the grocery(check out this blog for ideas on doing your gift shopping there), Kmart, Walgreeens and drugstore.com (I order from there about once a month-no shipping if you order a certain amount). Life is less hectic for sure and all those stores are 5 miles from my house or less. I don't do the Walgreens thing like the folks who get tons free or very cheap. We just don't need that much. I did find some great bargains on some things at Kmart yesterday in the 'clearance' aisle. They had beach towels 40% off plus an extra 20%. I didn't get any as we have plenty of beach towels but what a deal!
My daughter's first day of 1st grade was yesterday and all is well. She had a good day and really likes the teacher. Plus she has some other great kids in her class. And, thankfully, most of them are very well behaved. Last year was like a ZOO so I am thrilled this year. We have a 'parent night' tonight at school which we will hopefully turn into a 'mini' date night. My mom is babysitting so hopefully we can get a drink after the meeting.
I am off the for day...

I love drugstore.com..great deals and less impulse purchasing!
Thanks for your sweet comment over at my blog. I just had to link over and see how it turned out for you. I'm encouraged that you have a child now. I've just got to try to stay positive, and things like that do help.

Have a great day!

I am so glad that you stopped by. I am happy that the first day of school went so well.

I love your kitchen. I want to paint my kitchen cabinets, but taking that first step is scary.

Have a great day! ~Wendi
