Shockingly, I've arrived home from Wal-Mart without any kind of emotional breakdown, mid-shop. I even wound up in a checkout line with no one in front of me. That's never happened to me before, save for the times I went to the 24-hour Wal-Mart in the middle of the night in college because it seemed to make sense at the time. Baby even survived the trip, despite attempting to grab bottles of wine, throwing plastic containers of baby food to the floor, and chattering up a storm. I'm pleased with my trip - I stockpiled baby food (there is no cheaper place in town than Wal-Mart to buy jarred baby food, especially with coupons), picked up the dutch oven that Cook's Illustrated said is almost as good as the Le Creuset but for a fifth of the price, and gathered a few odds and ends that I can only find at Wal-Mart (like whole wheat flour - what's up with that, Publix?).
Me being a somewhat negative person, though...I do still have a few gripes. It was wickedly warm in Wal-Mart. I know I live in Florida, and today it's pretty warm outside, but still. I expect nice, frosty AC when I shop. Is that too much to ask? When we got home, even Baby was craving a frosty glass (or sippy cup) of water.
But it's Baby's dinnertime, so off I go...
Why you need a plan for the grocery store?
