The best factoid about Walmart is that their prices really are great.  I order all of my shampoos, soaps and other non-perishable supplies online and have them delivered for free right to my door.  And while it’s obviously not as interesting as going to the store in person..it’s definitely an easy way to keep the closets stocked.

    • It’s actually pretty sad to think that this many people are suing Walmart..but yes, the guy in front of the collapsed mountain of potato chips.. classic.. and he’s probably at least $25,765 richer thanks to that moment.
