Toys For The Christmas Season Of Fun

These toys caught my eye tonight at Walmart as I was picking up some prescriptions among other things. Toys remind me that this is a season of wonder, imagination, creativity and fun. All those things are important to children of all ages.

Pokemon Hunting At Walmart

Yes I am still playing Pokemon Go and I imagine many others are doing the same. Today we went to Walmart for a few things and while there I racked up on Pokemon including this new one I added to my collection. So not only can you walk out with $200 worth of stuffs you can level up to a new level in the game. Always low prices and lots of Pokemonsters too.

Walmart has closed 154 stores in 27 states, resulting in over 10,000 employee layoffs. Many of the stores that closed were the only source of groceries in the areas they served. David Begnaud is in Whitewright, Texas, where residents now have to drive 22 miles for groceries.

When Walmart moved into these communities they led to the closure of stores that existed for years before. Pretty crummy if you ask me.

Walk A Mile In My Shoes @ Walmart

Sometimes when you go to Walmart I bet you can walk at least a mile if not more. Most of those stores are as big as a football field on the inside and it’s about 4 times around a football field to make a mile, so I have been told. Those stores have a lot of stuff under one roof but you have to go from one end to the other to get everything you might need in a well-rounded shopping trip. I always prefer a smaller store to get what I need without the other frills and to make choosing what I want easier. Walmart is a necessary evil and it’s never easy to get out spending less than you wanted to when you went in. Since it’s the holiday season the crowds are bigger and the lines are longer.

They say “Always Low Prices, Always” but be prepared to hike a long time to get them and to get what you need.
