I had to take my son to buy some jeans last night and since I needed a few other things as well (a lightbulb, toilet paper holder etc..) what better place to go than to Walmart — one stop shop. I’m not ashamed to say it — yes, I shop at Walmart. I shop there for bird food, rabbit food, rabbit litter, the occasional Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and ….clothes.
Does it really matter that I buy clothes at Walmart? All jokes aside, Walmart clothes aren’t really that bad. I still own and wear a pair of black dress slacks that I bought there back in 2005. They haven’t fallen apart yet. Beware the cotton shirts tho — one wash and they turn into magical shrinky dinks (remember those?). My son found a nicely fitting pair of jeans for $15.00. Sorry but this mom is on a budget and I just can’t afford to spend $80 on a pair of Abercrombies! I promise, my son looks just as handsome in these. I did try on a pair of women’s jeans however (on sale for $9) ….size 8 my ass….maybe on another planet but not here on earth. Those were a no-go.
Best part about Walmart? I go there in my sweat pants, hair up, no makeup and flip flops — I don’t get any strange looks…its as if that’s almost expected….for some reason, it feels like home.
