Am I the only one that buys scrapping stuff at Walmart? Walmart is 20 minutes away, and the ONLY place to get scrapping supplies. I have to drive over an hour north, or south, to get to a Michaels, Joanns, or Hobby Lobby...or even a Meijers! You can bet whenever I do venture to one of these bigger towns, I buy whatever my pocketbook will allow! Just wondered if I'm the only one.......

I buy from Walmart when I happen to be there. Oddly Joanns, Michael's, and AC Moore are all closer to me then a Walmart so I shop at them much more often.

I have shopped at Walmart and Target for supplies. When I am in Walmart, I am so overwhelmed by the size that I never get to the scrapbooking things! As a matter of fact, since they remodeled my local Walmart, I don't think I know where they are.

I used to shop at Target (until they stopped stocking scrappy goodies) and K-Mart. Then I moved from Australia back to the UK and we don't have those here.

I really ought to check out the vast, get-lost-in, need-a-scooter-to-get-aro und Asda/Walmart that we now have 10 miles away. I don't shop there because like you, the size is just too much for me, and it isn't much cheaper. I always forget that it might possibly have scrappy stuff now.

I like the cardstock packs at WM. Ours doesn't carry too much else besides paper and stickers.

I always check the aisle... my walmart has a decent half-aisle and a lot of times their tools like xacto blades and things will be on clearance. Once they were having a huge clearance on smashbook stuff and I grabbed quite a bit of it.

My Target still has a scrappy aisle but I've heard that several don't anymore.

I definitely shop at walmart.com. I love online shopping...I can browse as long as I want and my feet don't get tired :>) Like anything else at WM...some things are terrific buys and others not so much. Whenever I'm shopping for a definite item, I check all the online stores, remembering the shipping fees, but most items at WM can either be shipped (U.S.) for free or free store pick-up.

I never have, but it's good to know they have scrappy stuff. I like shopping here except for the month of May. Hee hee

I avoid Walmart like the plague, but the few times I've been in there and happen to come across the scrapbooking aisle I've been less than impressed. I do go down the scrapbooking half-aisle at my local Target, but mostly I'll look for clearance stickers first, then see what the item on clearance is.

I shop at Wal Mart and I have bought a few scrapbook items from them. But they don't have very many scrapbook items. But I like their 8.5x11 color and black cardstock and the white cardstock.

I am another who avoids Walmart like the plague. Our Walmart just isn't a pleasant place to shop and after dark I really don't feel to safe in the parking lot.

Over the past few years I've gravitated more and more to online shopping like scrapbook.com - and I order on free shipping days.

Rosey, I have never seen scrapbooking stuff as such in the Asdas that I have been in in either Manchester area or up here in Glasgow.

But as you are more southerly, you might get better stuff.

Our Walmart has seriously downsized their scrapbook section. Just a few papers and stickers. No more cricut mats or supplies.

Our Walmart has actually expanded their scrapping section. Maybe because I spend so much money in that dept!! I got my cricut machine on clearance from there and they change their paper selection every few months so I check it out every time I'm there
