16. I too hate myself for shopping at WalMart
But the lower prices thing is crap. I had to get a powerpoint program today. I could waste two hours and 100 miles on the car for gas or go to WalMart and get the program in a 30 minute round trip. While there, I picked up some hot dogs and rolls. The rolls I normally pay 99 cents for were $2.09! And the hot dogs weren't any bargain either. More than $2 for what I normally pay $1.79.

BTW the powerpoint program was $10 more than at Staples.
