I learned a long time ago to watch prices, buy when on sale in multiples. Then you have it on hand till it goes on sale again.

When coupons available for your products, get them. There are a few great coupon sites online where you can buy your coupons in multiples just a few cents on the dollar.  Been doing that for years.

Then when you can combine a sale with a coupon also, you can save plenty.

Been doing that for years, and taught my grand-daughters to do that.

I shop a regular Walmart Supercenter and a Neighborhood Market depending upon what I'm needing. Haven't noticed price increases, they're (sadly) still the cheapest place in town. The Neighborhood Market is just around the corner from a Publix which is sometimes close to twice as much for the same brand/size items than Walmart... unless you hit the  frequent bogo free sales at Publix, then the prices are more palatable.

I shop at Walmart when we go out of town since we don't have one. Yes I have noticed some prices have gone up. You would think all Walmart  stores would have the same prices but they don't. If we drive to Amarillo they are higher then the  store in another town we go to and then when travel a different way their Walmart is a few cents cheaper. Weird.  Hate having to shop at different stores to save a little. But am starting to order more on line then ever before because of  the gas prices. When I only need a few things here I buy it and wait until we have to go out of town for the meats some things I can't order.  Oh well

I buy very little here at our grocery store as their prices are way out of line with the bigger stores out of town. so I stock up when we travel out of town. Then order  somethings I  often need but  don't want to spend the money for gas just for a few items so I order them until we have to go out of town again. always for doctors.  So I don't notice the prices going up a  whole lot, but know they do a little.  I buy in bulk whenever I can.

The min. wage went up, so prices goes up.  The stores pass the buck onto the consumers.

Walmart has a lock in our area ~ no competitors so they can charge what they wish.
Have a wonderful day!

That is what Walmart does the come in to a city and sell for low. Get rid of other mom and pop business  . Then raise there prices.

I may pay a little more but I shop at a grocery in my town where I get assistance which I don't/wouldn't at Wal--mart. I need this because of my difficulty with mobility.  Also it is just plain and simply a pain all the way around shopping at wal-mart - the last time I was there there only had one register with a cashier and all the others were self service with horrendously long lines.  I do shop at wal-mart but online.

I think you mentioned it correctly. Ordering on line is the way to go especially if you get free shipping. I think clothes that I have to try on are the only things I wouldn’t buy online.

I will buy t-shirts online but nothing else. I bought a pair of Reebok tennis shoes in the size I wear in that specific shoe and I get it and it is about 2 inches too long for my foot.  There was a size on the box but not in the shoe.  I sent them back to Amazon at their expense.  Shoes and jeans I need to try on.

Sadly, even with price increases they are cheaper than any where else. :(

The Walmart a couple counties over from me has lower prices than ours does.  Like you mentioned gas prices stop a lot of people from driving farther.

The min. wage went up, so prices goes up.  The stores pass the buck onto the consumers.

Min wage did not go up. The last minimum wage increase was in 2009.  Walmart increased their starting pay but minimum wage has not increased. I do agree though that when Walmart increased it's pay wages that is why their prices are going up.  People kept screaming they can afford to pay more and it won't effect prices and protesting for higher wages even if they didn't work there.  And well, now, they are going to help pay those higher wages.  Walmart nor any other business is going to take the hit.

They do here too. And being a small town we could not support another bigger chain store.

That is what Walmart does the come in to a city and sell for low. Get rid of other mom and pop business  . Then raise there prices.

That's not really how it works. And most people are glad to have Walmart. I can get a huge package of toilet paper for less than $10 at Walmart or buy it from the mom and pop shop in town for $27. The mom and pop shops as you call them charge way too much for their stuff.

We have a Dollar Tree and we have people who know when the trucks come in and they hang out in the stores all day while stock is put out and buy all of certain products. For ex. they have cans of French Onion Dip - they get 24 in and some jack wagon from a country store buys them ALL, pays no tax, then takes the dip he got for $1 and sells it for $2.99 in his store.  I could care less if they all go under.  And the one woman will actually fight other customers to make sure SHE gets it all.

Have you asked for help at Walmart? Usually if you ask for assistance they will help you. You may have to wait a bit for a cart pusher to come but they will usually help.  I do agree about the having one register open and then the self check outs. I would rather order from Amazon than Walmart.com because Walmart still profits.  I think they need to be knocked down a few notches myself.
