It's Friday evening. I had big intentions to make a good post tonight, but I've had one of those days -- you know, one of those where you don't feel like doing much and you really don't know why.
But, I haven't made a post in awhile, and I don't want any of you faithful followers to lose interest :)
So, here is a recommendation I have -- this is from back in July sometime.
At work, we were needing a small freezer for some things. I researched different options, and ultimately, the best deal was to order a small freezer online from Wal-Mart.
Now, I don't want to use this blog to debate the advantages and disadvantages of Wal-Mart. And, I definitely do not want to hear anything controversial about Wal-Mart because quite frankly, I think it's "hogwash." (Sorry -- couldn't think of a better term).
They have a wonderful program at some locations (unfortunately, I don't think it's available at our hometown Wal-Mart -- for all of you locals). The program is called "Site to Store."
The "Site to Store" program is when you order something online from Wal-Mart. Then, you have it shipped directly to the store. You then pick it up at the store. The beauty is that you do NOT have to pay shipping charges to order something that is not available in the store.
So, I did just that with this new freezer we needed. Fortunately, the DQ I work at is VERY close to a Wal-Mart that has this "Site to Store" program available.
Once you get the e-mail that your product is in, you go to the "Site to Store" pick-up area.
And, just in case you didn't get my description of the program, there is a sign -- reminding you how to do it.
They get your item and even take it to your car.....
**This particular employee had absolutely no idea I took his photo. Boy -- what I do for this blog!
Then, they even load it in your car (this is another employee's van, by the way).
It's that simple.
It's really a wonderful program, and I highly recommend you take advantage of it, if needed.
O.K., that's all for now. Sorry that wasn't very entertaining, BUT I do hope it was informative and persuasive.
Perhaps I'll feel more like blogging tomorrow. I'm just in a funk. I'll get out of it.
A trip back in time
