Partying at Wal-Mart

I'm a fan of Wal-Mart.  I know not everyone shares a love of Wal-Mart so bear with me.  I don't expect a relaxing, leisurely stroll through Wal-Mart with a Starbucks like you can do at Target.  I don't expect to get much help from sales associates and I always go to the store at off times to avoid the chaos that comes with the people of Wal-Mart :)

My bloggy friend Justine shares her weekly Wal-Mart finds and I'm going to join her when I've got something great to share.  She got me excited about shopping on walmart.com and she's helped me to realize that great things can be found for a great price at Wal-Mart.

I LOVE the party supplies that Wal-Mart sells.

They are great quality and a great price.

SPRINKLES
Have you ever seen this brand of sprinkles before - Dallies??
They come out with the cutest holiday themed sprinkles and they are under $2 a pop.  They're really great sprinkles and I'd expect to pay much more for them.  They also have standard sprinkles to use throughout the year.  I stock up when I see cute holiday ones because the Wilton sprinkles are much pricier than these.



PARTY SUPPLIES
I picked up all of my party supplies for Olive's purple princess party at Wal-Mart this year.  Most of them were purchased off of walmart.com and since I spent over $50 on misc items I got them shipped free to my house.  My only pet peeve of this service was that I ended up getting 6-8 separate boxes instead of shipping all of my items together.  

The on-line party shop offers a whole rainbow of colors for every type of party supply.  In store they only carry 5-6 colors of napkins, plates, cups so remember to check out their on-line options the next time you can't find what you're looking for in the store.

POM POMS
They offer all kinds of pom pom and garland options in solid colors.  I was thrilled to find this Sofia pom pom and hot pink ones for the party.

FRESH FLOWERS
I am always impressed with the variety of flowers my store gets.  It seems to be different every week - mixed bouquets, carnations, roses and seasonal items.  I really lucked out the week of Olive's birthday and found lavender tulips, roses and pink carnations.  They made the prettiest bouquets.  The carnations and tulips were $4.99 a bouquet and the roses were $12 for a dozen.  Great prices for pretty flowers.

Have you found anything great at Wal-Mart lately??

  3. Those sprinkles are super cute and a great price! I'm going to look out for them. I've recently started shopping online with Wal-mart too! I choose to pick up the items in the store. There is no shipping fee that way, and as long as there is no line, I can pick up my items quickly.

  4. I love Wal-Mart too and I am pretty unashamed to admit that. Plus Wal-mart has really upped their game over the past year too. I even found a few tops there! Love your picks.

  5. I have to go to Wal-Mart weekly!!! The Savings Catcher app is a great way to get money back and I can always find whatever I need. Like you said, it's not the experience that brings me back there....it's the items and price!

  6. Did you write that second line of your post for me? :) I have found some cute jewelry pieces at incredible prices at Walmart, and I got my Minnie ears for our Disney trip from Walmart.com . I do like their ship to store option for a quick in-and-out (well, as quick as Walmart can be. Ha!). :)

  7. I agree with all of these products. I love their party supplies. They have every color and different patterns and they are priced really well also. Since we don't live close to a Target, we shop at Walmart quite a bit. They also have a great array of craft supplies and the clearance section is always really good and full of random items.

  10. I agree that timing your WM trip is key! I got in the habit of going after I drop my kids off at school at 7am. The store is empty and all the aisles/shelves are clean. It's a different story later in the day! Anyway, I love getting party supplies there, but never thought to look online. Their prices are unbeatable. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  11. Our Sam's Club always has lovely flowers, but the furry babies like to snack on them. And I found a Sasquatch brand pizza at Wal-Mart, so I now go there to buy that pizza.
