Yup boo hoo for walmart. They sell their crap for cheaper prices, then they can't afford to pay their workers more than 6.50/hr, that'* the case at our wal mart.

I just dropped $200.00 at Wal-Mart, I would shop at Target if we had any up here. I bought all of Jessica'* school supplies, and a few other goodies. Wal-Mart up here is a way of life, we need it, we pay double what other people pay, and yes it may be full of crap, but at least it is crap that we can afford!!!!


Side note- this is a question for any member(*) who are in high school or just got out, did you get school supply lists when you were in highschool??

I never liked it either. I got to school and they told me I needed a 150 dollar calculator! Had to be the right one or they wouldnt accept it.

They did this with my son too when he was in school a few years ago. Dumb school making us by such an expensive calculator for a special education kid that would never need 99.9% of its features and couldn't add 4 and 7 without taking off his shoes and socks. What he did was copy a few games to it and thats all most of the kids did with thier calculators. One game was called PIMP which was actually pretty fun to play.

All i ever need for school was two 6-subject notebooks and a 10pk of Bics.
