    I've seen soooo many threads on Wal-mart I thought it would be good to list the things we all go for especially.

    I always get fishing tackle, country music cd's and a few dvd's
    DW always gets scrapbooking stuff, Betty crocker cake mixes and various choccy bars with peanut butter in.

    We have bought a new throw for the bed and on more than one occasion, an extra case to get all our goodies home. :goodvibes

    What do you go to Wal mart for?

    We normally go on our first night to stock the villa up with everyday provisions but will go back during the holiday to kit DD out with tops and trousers. She isn't a big girl by any means but the clothes she can buy in there always fit better than any we can buy in the UK - and last a lot longer to.

    On our last trip, we went to Walmart and came out with (amongst other things) a 6 man tent, which my DH said was too good a buy to pass up! We put it through with our luggage on flight home and was amazingly still within baggage allowances...

    We went to Walmart on the first day to buy t-shirts, as our cases were late.
    Apart from that it was mainly for food shopping :)

    We go to Wal-Mart for just about everything on our first day. Normally, we come out with at least: food, some DVDs - usually box sets of TV shows that aren't available in the UK, music, shampoo (they sell an extra large bottle of our shampoo that's getting harder to find in the UK, and half the price!), I try and buy all my DS games for the year, since they are 1) cheaper, 2) still compatible! Last year, I bought and completed Professor Layton 1 six months before it was even released here! My most random item this year was the Singer Hand-held Sewing Machine - perfect for finishing off our costumes before MNSSHP! :rotfl:

    In the past though we've bought clothes, underwear, suitcase, baking equipment, cookie cutters, material (LOVE their sewing section!), towels, gifts, shoes, microwavable bowls, torches, batteries (bargain!!!), pens

    Anything the wife tells me to!!!!:rotfl2:

    Normally t-shirts/polo shirts as they fit me better, toys for the kids, groceries and household stuff for the villa to last us the fortnight.

    Matching diney t-shirts for me and DD. Food. Beer. Nintendo DS games. CDs for car. A cross stitch set. All our pressies. Mugs. Toys.

    We bought a Country Bears DVD but it won't work over here?? :confused3

    Big Wallmart fan but DH HATES it (except beer and liquor parts!!) He doesn't mind any other supermarket so not sure what the problem is?

    I'm planning to buy and air mattress for DD to sleep on in the 1BR at OKW. The combination of 12y/o DS and 10y/o DD sharing a sofabed is a recipe for disaster :sad2:
    ...unless I get upgraded to a 2BR, but that, I'm afraid, seems very unlikely!

    Hi
    You'll need to get a multi-regional DVD player to watch DVD from the states, they're not very expensive, we got ours off of amazon. :thumbsup2

    Mine is region-free, and was £19.99 from Currys. Technically, the machine is advertised as a region 2, but they supply you with the code to unlock it and make it multi-regional!! I'm now on my second generation of these models!

    I like to go and have a wander. I am amazed at the range of goods they sell under one roof. ;)
    The motoring section is bigger than our local Halfords! :lmao:

    Been in a few times but only when we know we want something, we all hate the place. Sunglasses for Matt was on trip. Another was a SD card, couldn't believe how expensive they were so waited until got home, I expected memory cards to be for nothing.
    Groceries much prefer Publix.
