A trip to Walmart is, at least for me, always a wild experience. When you enter those sliding double doors you know there's a particular set of rules that apply. This isn't just shopping; this is Walmart one-stop-shopping that, honestly, can't be compared to any other consumer experience. I mean, where else can you buy off-brand diapers at a fraction of the original price? You're in bargain city, my friend. So, yes, there are a few clear signs you're a Walmart mom, and I say you fly that flag proudly.
Make no mistake, being a Walmart mom is not a bad thing. Having been one myself, there are some observations I've made about myself, and the general population that shops there, that are telling. For example, the mom willing to dodge long lines and race to the bargain section is definitely an overworked mom who doesn't have the time to sift through deals. She wants to see those big yellow signs, know exactly what discount price she's going to take advantage of, and be on her way. But the mom who is aimlessly wandering around the aisles, list-free, checking the sales bins and thumbing through the discount DVDs? She's on a vacation from her children, people. Leave her in peace. If she's really feeling wild, she's going to head on over to the toy section and play with one of those gigantic bouncy balls.
There ain't no shame in my Walmart game, friends, and you shouldn't feel any shame, either. In fact, you're saving money and probably cutting your errand list in half, so own it. Here's some signs you've gone full-Walmart.
