So I keep reading on SmartCanucks.ca about all the great deals people are finding at their local Walmarts. All kinds of awesome stuff for $1. I keep checking our Walmart but find nothing. Our store actually has a big clearance area right now because the store is renovating but there is still nothing good – as least nothing good with a good price. I keep reading about all these $1 deals, like Gillette Fusion ProGlide blades (4 pack) for $1! WOW! I would love to find some of those, my fiancĂ© loves those…

Anyway, so while in Walmart again last night I tried looking for some of these deals. Here is highlight, and about the cheapest thing I found. An OPEN Burt Bee’s Lip Balm for $2… GROSS! Well.ca sells them brand new for $4.50. Also, there was a pack of black and white photo paper specially made for my photo printer… I have been watching the clearance price of these SAME pack of photo paper for over two years. No that is not a typo… OVER TWO YEARS (and the packaging looks it). I was utterly shocked last night that I noticed the clearance price has INCREASED over $5. No joke. This lone pack of photo paper has sat in the same place in Walmart for over two years and the price has increased. I honestly wonder if it is even good anymore because it has the built in ink. From the looks of things I don’t think my Walmart will ever these great $1 clearance deals. Obviously our Walmart sucks.
