The Best Way to Spend Less than $5 at Wal-Mart

Why is it that every time I walk into Wal-Mart I spend at least $25 or $30. I guess that's not too bad considering the fact that I used to drop over $100 each time I went. (Those were my pre-CVS days!) I walk in with coupons in hand and head straight for the great deals that I've found online. I snag as many of those deals as possible, but then I notice more things that I forgot I HAD to have! (Please hear the sarcasm in this!) Those shorts for my daughter are too darn cute to not buy.... I forgot that we needed some animal cookies.... I forgot to that we could use a couple of new bath towels.... I forgot a lot of things that add up quickly.

I sent my husband to Wal-Mart the other day. We needed a new shower curtain liner. He walked in, picked up the liner, checked out, and left....... spending a whopping $3 and some change.

I've found the secret!

To save money at Wal-Mart, I'll send my husband.
