Last week, I thought it would be fun to spend some time at Wal-Mart shopping for craft supplies. While I did come up with some new ideas, the experience was anything but fun.
Just for the record, I am a typical guy when it comes to shopping. I avoid it when possible and always put it off until the last moment. At the store, I am easily distracted and start whining after 5 minutes.
The whole trip was redeemed only by the presence of my digital camcorder. I hope you will enjoy this little video and maybe you will learn from my mistakes.
Once it was over, I had the supplies for about 6 weeks work of children’s church. I’ll try to write articles for the website as I complete them. The cost was not too bad, but my wife tells me I should just order from the crafts catalog next time.
I will certainly be more prepared if I go back. Not having a plan made the whole process more painful than it needed to be. I could find almost everything at the store except inspiration. The employees were honestly following me around after a while, I guess all the talking on camera was a little strange.
I’ll give you one guess about who does the grocery shopping in my family.
