On Thursday May 2nd, Walmart Canada declared it the national day of savings for stores across Canada and they challenged a group of us bloggers from across Canada to see what we could buy for $100.
Well I shop quite regularly at Walmart as it is the store at the end of my street. Really it is my corner store.
So what was my challenge since I am job hunting I decided to get outfits I could wear for work and since I work in Social Media I need everything from a dress to casual pants and tops. I took part in the challenge at the Dufferin Mall Walmart.
As soon as I got to the store I noticed prices that are absolutely great for basics.
So I wandered through to the plus section were I was able to find everything I needed for a back to work wardrobe on a budget.
So what does a $100 buy a mom on a budget?
2 dresses one black and one blue $5 (clearance)and $16 = $21
2 pair of pants one black dressy pair and one grey and casual $25 and $5 = $30
2 t-shirts, one purple and one green = $16
1 pair of sandals = $29
Since I shop at Walmart frequently this was an easy challenge for me, infact since Thursday I updated my office for $40 with a new desk from Walmart for $36, and bought few things to update my kitchen for under $10 but more on them another day.
How would you spend $100 at Walmart and how far could you stretch yours?
* I did receive a $100 Gift Card from Walmart Canada to participate in the challenge but was not compensated any further and as always my opinions are my own.
