It started when I finished off the last of the milk and half and half this morning. Since I was going to work today, I planned on getting another gallon of milk and some creamer before I headed home today. I have also been wanting a calendar for my purse, an attempt to become more organized. I have looked at all logical places to find one, but none have been what I have been looking for. The only other place I have left unturned was Wal-Mart (enter the evil laugh of the "machine"). My family has boycotted Wal-Mart for a long time now. It has been especially easy since Target is not that far away with all the other great quality shopping in our area. This afternoon I was going to go by the fabric store then to Wal-Mart, only looking for the calendar, and back to the grocery store for the perishables then home. I did not want Wal-Mart to have what I was looking for because I do not like supporting them, for numerous reasons that will have to wait for another post. Well I went to the fabric store, just browsing, not planning on purchasing anything. Then I went to the "machine" to look for the calendar. Well wouldn't you know they had exactly what I was looking for. Not only did they have it, they had quite a nice selection of calendars. So in my fleshly want for a calendar TODAY, I decided to go ahead and buy it. Well while I was there, did I mention it was a SUPER WAL-MART, I thought about the time getting close to 5:00 and not wanting to go to the grocery store also, I decided to go ahead and buy everything I needed at Wal-Mart. This was OK until I got to the check-out. I got in line for the self-check out. As I was scanning my items, I kid you not, I began feeling so shameful and like I had made a bad decision. I have no idea where it came from. This was the first purchase I have made from Wal-Mart in over a year. I feel like I have sold out simply for convenience and it feels terrible. Needless to say, I will not be going back, even if it will cost me a little more to pay for my items elsewhere or to drive farther to get what I need. LONG LIVE TARGET!
