I am a Walmart shopper. I like to save money so I do go to Walmart if I need anything. Do you go to Walmart to save money? Are you a Walmart shopper? Do you have one close to your house?

Yes, I am a Wal-Mart shopper. Just about everything I buy, I buy from there. There are several close my home, if you consider 10 or 20 miles close. There are even a couple of super centers near me as well. I prefer these over the regular Wal-Mart as I can get almost everything I need at just one store.

I shop at Walmart at least once a week. I enjoy finding the great deals on items that cost bundles more at other stores. Also, they have a rather wide selection of items that other stores don't, or if they do, those stores usually sell them for a large price when Walmart keeps them priced rather small. I'd shop there over any other store any day of the week.

I am a Walmart shopper!....I can spend hours going through the aisles and I also often buy food items in our Walmarts that have the frozen food section. When my daughter is low on money, she grocery shops at Walmart.. They do have a lot of good bargains and some things are just as good as anywhere else. Its also fun to have breakfast at the instore McDonalds, followed by a trip through the aisles, then a relaxing hair makeover at the salon in Walmart. Yes we have one close to us, about 3 minutes away.

Me & my mom shop at walmart at least two times a month to save on money. We buy most of everything there. We even use coupons to save money. Walmart is a place to go to save money. We do go to other grocery stores if they are having really good buy one get one free deals. Alot of are grocery stores around town offer those deals and we try to stock up on them.

Yes, I am or I was an everyday WalMart shopper. I love Walmart, and when I was working I went to WalMart frequently I would buy my grocery, get my prescription filled. I would just drop by to see what was on sale. I love the electronic area too. I could buy clothes at Walmart. I really miss going to Walmart. I can't go as much now because I don't have the extra money. And yes Walmart a is close to where I live.

I really do like Walmart and it does save a lot of money of course. I have saved more money there then some of the higher end stores. I like the fact that the Walmart has a supermarket. And there are a couple of them close by to me. I believe that there are Walmarts just about any where one goes. It is a very popular store that is for sure.

I do shop at Walmart but sometimes I get so disgusted when I think about it. About 15 miles from me is a town of about 15,000 and it used to be a very cute little town with tons on small locally owned businesses and it seems since Walmart has moved in that most of them have eventually had to close their doors. I don't like that. Not much shopping available there anymore. Just a Walmart a couple grocery stores and a Shopko. I am also a person who is very busy so one stop shopping is great for me...although I will not buy their meats. I do think these big franchises are convenient but can be very detrimential to a community as well.

hello moneymommy i used to do all of my shopping at a nearby super Wal-Mart like that, but i stopped going to Wal-Mart to do all of my shopping. i can spend less in going to a regular grocery store like Kroger's to do my grocery shopping. when i go into Wal-Mart i spend money on things that i really do not need to purchase, therefore making my grocery bill higher. so i had to cut that out. that is where that i am headed soon here this morning is to do some grocery shopping and i will probably go to Kroger's to shop. so about the only time that i go to Wal-Mart to do any kind of shopping it is usually always around a holiday, like Easter, Valentine's Day, Christmas or something like that. i always have a list made out when that i go grocery shopping, but in a big store like Wal-Mart, i am helpless. lol take care and have a beautiful day today!

Walmart logo - Don't like Walmart
Yes I do, and the truth is I hate it. I have to go there to save money. What has happened is they redid the store a year ago and cut back on the inventory. No more sewing section with material, variety of craft selections. They don't have a large variety of any particular item anymore and some things they just did away with all together. I like to buy most of my food items and beverages from them, their soft drinks are cheaper, and cereal and stuff like that. A lot of business here have left because of Walmart, they couldn't compete. And once they were gone, Walmart cut back on it's inventory and here we sit. They should come up with a new motto, 'If we don't have it, you don't need it.' They have no competition here.

I'll admit it. I'm a Walmart shopper ;) We do have one close by so it's convenient and carries a lot of things in one place. I do watch what I buy though as the prices can be quite a bit lower or quite a bit higher, and I'm finding that when they say rollback prices lately, they don't seem to stay rolled back :( even though they are not a particular sale item. Our Walmart is not one of the superstores, I don't really like them much as I find them too big and kind of overwhelming, especially when taking the kids.

I'll admit, that is where I shop. My biggest worry is not going over my limit. Every so often I do, but not lately. In January, I had a bit of money, so money wasn't too much of an object. I spent between Walmart and Sam's Club close to twelve hundred dollars that day. The one closest to my house I cannot get to and have to go to the one that is accessible by bus.

My husband and I Love shopping at WalMart and overall you can find us shopping at WalMart just about anytime we have extra $$. We especially Love the Suoer WalMarts and some of the great deals you can get there as well. We joke sometimes we need a Bumper Sticker that reads: "Caution, this car stops at all WalMarts", as we are one to stop at one while driving somewhere, just because we see one.

Unfortunately there is no Walmart in my city. Here the market is already occupied by other supermarkets. And perhaps it's hard for Walmart to find a good place here. I know other cities have Walmart and perhaps I will visit it when I have a travel. I love China

I haven't been to Walmart and I haven't shopped at their stores either since they don't have a branch in my country. But I heard that people go there to save money on things they buy. We have stores like that here too and that is where my family and I go to save money.
