Is it worth it?

So, Wal-mart had Heinz ketchup on sale forty oz for a buck. One night I went to stock up and to get cheap fabric that was also on sale. They were out of the ketchup, which I thought was very irresponsible on their part, since there was a huge advertisement and commercial, they totally should have stocked up!

The next day I tried again at a different Wal-mart. No buck ketchup in the ketchup isle. I found a clerk and asked if they had any in the back. They told me there was some by the doors, nope. The greeter told me that it was in seasonal, nope. The second person I asked in seasonal ( the first I asked where exactly seasonal was) I told her, I don't mean to be rude and I know it is not your fault, but you have a big advertisement for this ketchup. I have been to 3 places in the store and now two stores and I can't find any. Can you tell me if you have any in stock? She went to ask a manager. The manager said to look in seasonal. Well I will fast forward the story for you after more walking and talking to two other managers and decision was made to give me the smaller bottle (only 4 oz smaller) for 90 cents. I took 5 and was very pleased.

Yes, it is worth it to me.


  1. awesome. I wanted to go and get some of that too and forgot. I need ketchup..almost out in my food storage...down to two bottles and we go through at least 1 a month. Darnit. Would have been worth it to me too.

  2. Wow, It amazes me how thrifty you are with your money. I don't think I would have stuck it out. Walmart's employee's drive me crazy. They don't know anything. I think I would rather pay regular price than spend all that time trying to find it. : )
