    I want to thank Wal-Mart for taking items out of their stores! It caused me to look around to find the name brand products I wanted, and boy had I been a fool. I was paying way too much for some items that I can now purchase at other stores. And the big boom was by ordering on line! I order my hair spray in a package of 6 and save, including shipping $2.01 each. And I do not have to drive to Wal-Mart, fight the crowds, deal with rude clerks, or trying to find where they have moved it this week. 2-3 minutes on line, and the UPS guy blows his horn 3 days later. Again Thank You Wal-Mart for showing me the way!
