Years ago, when we moved to Springfield, Mo., to go to Bible College, we discovered a wonderful 'new' place to shop.  It was a place called Wal-Mart.  Back then, the only stores were the small ones but they were packed with all kinds of bargains! 
There was even a very nice fabric department, remember those?  Sam Walton is probably spinning in his grave at the sight of what has happened to his business.  Yes, it is the largest employer in the USA and maybe even the world.  I do not have any stats on that part.  He may be pleased.  Some of his customers, not so much.
When Sam was dying, the story goes that he was in the top ten richest people in the country.  He called in his four children, split up the company and they became part of the top ten of the richest people in the country.  Does that give you an idea how much money they made?!
Well, many things have changed with Wallie World.  Seems there is one in every town.  When we moved to Missouri, there were three on one street back then.  It was a long street but there were really three Wal-Marts on one street. 
I said all that to say this, Wal-Mart is still a great place to shop for bargains.  Coupons are accepted, which makes it a good deal for us couponers.

Today, I stopped in to use some of my coupons.  I purchased:

Four packs of Bic Pens....FREE with coupons
Three bananas
One spiral notebook on clearance....half price....seventy five cents
One four pack of small spiral note pads.....fifty cents
The total cost for all of this, including tax, was $2.44.
