Kissing Wal*Mart Goodbye

Let's start with an easy one. Maybe you've done it already.

No Longer Shop at Wal*Mart

Some of us have already done this. For those of us in cities, this shouldn't even be too hard. If the prices are just too good to pass up, shop at Target instead (on average, Target is only 1% more expensive than Wal*Mart).

If you live in a rural area and you do not have an alternative, make an even smaller change. No longer purchase groceries at Wal*Mart. Stop filling prescriptions at Wal*Mart. Don't use a shopping cart when you go to Wal*Mart (part of their marketing strategy is that people are proven to buy more when they have a shopping cart - ever wonder why Wal*Mart's shopping carts are HUGE?). Buy used. Buy online. Any change that is acceptable in your lifestyle and will decrease Wal*Mart's profits is a step in the right direction.

Why Wal*Mart?
