I have to say, I’m not a huge Wal-Mart fan.
I have never really cared for their stores, as they seem to get junky about a week after opening. Generally, their everyday prices are better than most grocery stores, but since we buy so much off weekly ads (which Wal-Mart doesn’t have) and since we use so many coupons, many of which other stores will double (Wal-Mart does not do this), I think many of their prices turn out to be beatable.
One thing that has turned up as an unbeatable deal is their store brand (Great Value) of half and half. I used to use the powdered creamer for my coffee, but after someone pointed out to me the label and all the bad stuff that it contains, I decided that, even though half and half is more expensive, it was worth it.
I ended up finding out that it tasted better too!
Still, my wife would often pay around $3 for a quart. This lasts me a while, but it was still pretty expensive. When she went to Wal-Mart and found their brand for $1.44, I knew that this was indeed a great value and worth the occasional trip.
So, while Wal-Mart doesn’t appeal to us for everyday shopping, there are certain things that make it worth the occasional trip!Copyright 2017 Original content authorized only to appear on Money Beagle.
