The other day after my doctors appointment my husband and went shopping. Chris always has Mondays off. It’s great for him. We always have a long weekend, plus if either of us needs to make appointments his having Mondays off is quite convenient.
I went on a shopping spree!
I’ve needed to get some new clothes for a while. Since I’m mostly at home I didn’t need to get anything fancy. I just wanted a couple pairs of pants and I wanted to get a new pair of pajamas … well ok a T-shirt nightie. Comfy stuff.
So we went to the shopping mecca called Walmart. They’ve built a new super store close to where the previous Walmart had been. It’s huge!
I ended up getting two pairs of pants, a few t-shirts, three nighties and uh a bra. I needed that stuff!
We also picked up some groceries. I’ve never minded picking up dried goods – cereals and packaged foods like that, or canned and bottled items, but this store is more like a grocery store now. The old Walmart had a freezer section along with the rows of packaged food items, but it didn’t sell fresh food. This one does.
This last time and the time before I didn’t hesitate to get some fruit, veggies and salad makings. They were in good shape, and the price was right. I have however been hesitant to purchase fresh meat from Walmart. You know there’s some stores that you just don’t buy fresh goods from. For me, one of them is a grocery store called Food Basics here in Canada. They have great prices but their meat sucks. It seems to be off a lower grade than in other grocery stores.
So … does anyone purchase fresh meats at Walmart?
I did notice that they had some name brands – possibly some those of you from the US and other countries might not be familiar with like Maple Leaf which a good brand maker of meat products. The prices were reasonable and the chicken, beef and pork looked fresh and of good quality. I was tempted, but hesitated. I thought it might be best to ask my readers opinion first. I hate to waste money.
Who buys meat at Walmart? Is it good? Have you been happy with the quality?
