This is a blog by one Mama who got tired of making excuses for not living the lifestyle she wanted. This is the story of that mama trying to change it all, and the lessons learned along the way.

We don't shop at Walmart very often. Their produce always looks really bad!
That's a scary chart. Glad I don't go there often, but in a small town, sometimes that's my only option in a pinch.
I'm not a big Wall-Mart shopper. Product & meat are terrible! Got to wonder where it comes from! Plus the prices are not all that cheap when you consider what you are buying! I stay away from Walgreens too!
The thing I hate most about Wal-Mart is that they put so many local stores out of business everywhere they go. I would rather support my neighbors. In this town alone, I know we have locally owned hardware, corner grocer, furniture, gas, plant nursery, etc. So many more before Wal-Mart though. In fact, since Wal-Mart came here, I have personally seen a neighboring town's public square go from bustling to nearly empty. Everyone drives to Wal-Mart.
I do not think that "disposable pricing" has impact on commodity trends whatsoever. It is too many individuals' choice to dispose and replace. I love walmart for the grocery prices but like others cannot buy their meat or much of the produce. I do not buy much else in stores because rummage sales are the way to shop!
