...this is a "ficticious" shopping spree ala Lucy and Ethyl....what would you do? I would hit DILLARDS or JCP and spend the whole time grabbing all the boys clothing I can!...my boys grow out of stuff so fast they don't even wear it out!......I need all the bargains I can get!!! ;)

I would pick Walmart. I would start in the home department because we need so much stuff still. Then clothes and toys if I had time. I could go w/ someplace like Famous Barr since they have "better" stuff...but I know the layout of Walmart so much better and could make better time.

I would go to one of grocery or drug stores that carry gift cards for various other stores. Then you could shop at when and where you want.

Since Christmas is coming up, I'd have to do TRU and hit the electronics first. Just sweep my arm across all the shelves and watch it all fall into my cart.

Does picking up those cards that you take to checkout because the item is so big count? If so, I'd hit Best Buy, pick up a couple big screen tvs, digital camera, camcorder, stereo etc. I could do some real damage there.

Best Buy for me also. I would get a TV, Home Theater set, Washer and Dryer, Refridgerator, DVDs and CDs. I wouldn't even take my cart until I got to the DVDs. I would just take those little slips and put them in my pocket.
