146. I am a pretty careful shopper
and usually only get brand name staples at WM if they are cheaper. Mainly I just don't like the stores, they are too bright and the floors are concrete and they are so huge I feel I've run a marathon after shopping. Because you are always picking up a light bulb on one side of the store when you remember you forgot the sugar.

If you want to see how much big box stores' stuff is really worth, check liquidation.com. Amazing.

I do think you can get most big box items better on ebay as long as you don't get slammed with shipping. Overstock.com ships almost free.

Well, lately I have less and less money anyway, preparing for retirement, trying to figure out how to live on half my income (and grateful for my pension) And if the pension goes, my kids can move over on the couch because I supported them completely for five years and professional education! THEY OWE ME!
