Avoid Walmart unless you have a list

Giving up WalMart was my New Years Resolution!!! It's EEEVIL! I haven't gone since December and I am thrilled. I've been doing all of my shopping at JC Penney and Dollar Stores. Clothes/shoes are cheaper at Penney's than Wallies when they have a sale. Their clearance is awesome! And we get all other necessities at Dollar General, Family Dollar, or our local grocery store. I haven't needed to set foot in Wal Mart one time. Plus, our grocery store has "fuel perks". When you shop there, you earn money off your fuel (the grocery store also has a gas station). So it's a win-win!
Just as a side note...my daughter needed winter boots...WalMart ONLY had Hannah Montana in her size... $22.00!!! Pennies had Totes on sale for $12. We bought leggings for my 2 year old. Walmart: $8 for 1 pair. Pennies: $10 for 2 pair.
WalMart is convenient...but it won't save you money unless you're a VERY careful shopper!
