I was watching the World Series tonight and one of the banners in the back ground was saying, "Wal-Mart. Save Money. Live Better." If one didn't know better, one would think Wal-Mart is a bank. It is not a bank. It is not a credit union. It is not a saving institution of any kind. It is a place to go to buy things and spend money. Saving money is adding to your savings account or mutual fund. This is all marketing folks. Don't buy into it. I have not shopped at Wal-Mart for some time now. The last time I was in their store was when I was on vacation. My wife had to buy a swim suit and there really were not any options. I don't shop at their stores because they don't have anything I want, there are other retail options, and I don't like the feel of their stores. I don't like messy, cramped, and an all around poor image. I choose to shop other stores who do not try and trick me into thinking I am saving money by spending.
