My love/hate relationship with Walmart...

I stopped at Walmart Thursday night on the way home, just to grab my nicotine patches (couldn't believe how much cheaper they were there!). Walked by the book section and just had to stop. Nora had a new book come out Tuesday, Vision in White and I knew there were a couple of others that I was wanting to take a look at and see if they were interesting enough for me to actually buy or see if the UBS had them.

Heres what I walked out with last night:

Vision In White by Nora Roberts
City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare
City Of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
Night World No. 1 by L.J. Smith

a cute hobo tote bag on sale for $10!
a Slim Jim with cheddar cheese stick
and the Equate nicotine patches.

Needless to say, I walked out with alot more than I expected! This is why I say I have a love/hate relationship with Walmart. I always walk out spending more than I originally planned. And it can be explained, trust me. Well, the patches are $10 cheaper than they are anywhere else, so that pays for the bag. And I would have to actually drive to the UBS to see if they even have the books that I want, and if they don't then it's a wasted a trip, etc...see? I have a very rational explantion for it. At least its rational in my mind. I go in expecting to spend my $35 and walk out spending over $70. WTH?!? I think they pump something in the air to make you lose all sense.

hahaha, I agree. There's gotta be some explanation for why people buy so much when they go to wal-mart.
