I do like my hair cut in a pixie. But lately I have been letting it grow out. I now just push it behind my ears and wear the front brushed back off my face. I do like it short as in wash and wear. But right now, every so often while watching TV or just sitting, I will plug in my curling iron and play with my hair. I will admit it does look better with curls than just straight. But I think I have reach the length that I can stand. Time to go to the salon again and just tell her "OFF". Take it all of OFF. And she does. Just short of shaving it off.

I have seen women my age with hair a lot longer than mine and it looks beautiful. I just wish mine would turn all white. No half and half like it is now.

One more reason that I don't stop at Walmart.

I go to Walmart about once a year to get something I can't get anywhere else. One of my deal blogs alerted me to a good deal at Walmart, so since I was going to be near one I stopped by. I found the item brought it up and it rang up at 2.5 times the online price. I was told that they could not price match themselves. Here is the even crazier part, I could stand there and order it on my phone, watch an associate come over and pick one up, bring it to the pick up spot and go over there and pick it up for the lower price. So how much sense does that make? I don't have time to waste, so they aren't getting my money and I'll continue to shop elsewhere.

I have this evil side. I would have stood there and ordered it from my phone just for the pure satisfaction of being a bitch. Grant you, it would have held up the line, but that is their problem, not mine.

Oh trust me, I thought about it, I had it pulled up on my phone, but I had to get home to bake gifts for friends tonight, or I totally would have! That's OK, I'll find it from another vendor, I'm not desperate to get it.

I think each person should wear their hair the length that they like, the length that THEY feel looks best on them. No one else's opinion matters. My hair is very thick and coarse. Since about age 40, I have tried growing it a little longer because I see a hairstyle on someone else, but it just doesn't look right on me. Right now my hair is shorter than usual because my hairdresser was off sick, but I still like it, and it will be a good length by Christmas. DH doesn't like it, but it will grow.

I shop Walmart often, because I like their prices, and they have some things I can't get anywhere else. I have ordered a few things online for pick-up in the store, but they were items they did not have in my local Walmart.

The only time I had an issue was when I saw a knife sharpener online and saved it to take some time to think about it before ordering. A couple days later I went back and it was "out of stock." I kept checking, and a couple days later it was back in stock for a couple dollars more than before, but still in my price range, so I ordered it and am happy with it.

I do know of others who have had problems with Walmart...it just hasn't happened to me....yet.

I have never been in a Walmarts. There isn't one even near me. But the one complaint I hear about is that there is no one on the floor to help them. I guess you have to know the store really well to find what you want. Or drive the service desk where this is, where that is, etc.

I've read articles about how they are chronically understaffed to the point of empty shelves but having plenty in the back room, just nobody to put it out. This seems to ring true with the people that I know on the inside. It's too bad that they have become complacent, since this is the only or best option that some have in their area.

It makes me wonder if their next step will be shoddy products.

A new Kroger Marketplace store opened, right across the street from our local Walmart. They're well-staffed, well-stocked, the prices are as good or better than Walmart and they have a gas station where you can get a discount with your store card. We love it

I am glad to see Walmart get some competition.
