Walmart: The "Grab and Go" Method and a Few August Values

When my husband suggested that we do most of our grocery shopping at WalMart, I was not thrilled with the idea. Shopping with the two boys is not a pretty sight. Gone are the days of idly strolling through the aisles searching for the best deals or standing in front of the ice cream freezer for 15 minutes trying to decide between Edy's, Breyer's and Klondikes.  Gone are the days of chatting with people I know or browsing the magazine rack.

With a preschooler who likes to touch things, and a toddler who hates {with a capital "H"} being confined in a cart, I am now a "grab and go" kind of girl. Trying to keep the toddler in the cart while keeping things from flying out of the cart, I'm juggling a grocery list, coupon envelope, coupon file folder, notebook, pen and calculator. No, this was definitely not my idea.

But I do have to give my husband credit....it does look like we have saved money this month {I will give an update on how the money saving experiment is working at the end of the month}. So for now, you will be able to find me at the local WalMart on Saturday mornings...but I probably won't have much time to chat.

Here are some of the great values that I was able to find at WalMart this past month along with the coupons that I used:
