I only bought my groceries at Harris Teeter. I turned up my nose at any other supermarket.
I only bought my sundries at Target. I turned up my nose at Wal-mart.
Then life happened. We bought a house. I had a baby. I started staying at home. And we didn't have as much money as before.
So my attitude had to change and I had to begin shopping at Super Wal-Mart.
And after 5 years of shopping at Super Wal-Mart, I must admit, I can't imagine paying those outrageous Harris Teeter prices ever again. But I will always hold a special place in my heart for Target and if I just need a couple of things and happen to be nearby, I will always choose Target over Wal-Mart. (Hey, a girl has got to splurge every now and then!)
During my years of Super Wal-Mart shopping, I have learned a little trick and I'm going to share it here today.
I always park on the non-grocery side of the store. I head in and pick up all of my non-grocery items and then head over to the grocery section to finish my shopping.
After I'm done shopping, I head back over to the non-grocery side to checkout. There are usually never any lines over there and if there are, the people ahead of me usually only have a couple of non-grocery items.
All the people with their baskets loaded down are piled up in the checkouts on the grocery side. I can quickly checkout and head to my car which is already parked on the non-grocery side of the store.
I know this sounds like a simple thing but you will be surprised at how quickly you can checkout of the Super Wal-mart - even on a busy Sunday afternoon. It may be simple, but it Works For Me!
