Why Wal-Mart Doesn't Save Us Money

I imagine most money-conscious households shop at Wal-Mart. All those price roll-backs and affordable products, who could resist? WE CAN! I can't tell you how many times we've gone to Wal-Mart, gotten excited over a lower priced product and brought it home, only to be shocked at the poor quality. I am not exaggerating when I say we have yet to keep a single item purchased at this store. Every single thing we've bought at Wal-Mart has been promptly returned. After the last experience, which was a small bathroom cabinet that assembled so that the doors couldn't even open, we swore to one another we would never return.

I'm happy to say we've kept this promise, and feel good about our decision. Saving money is great, until you sacrifice quality or product enjoyment. Even a penny spent on a poor product is a penny wasted. We have learned it's better to spend a bit more and have something that will last.

What do you think? Any good experiences shopping at this store? We want to know!
