How I justify shopping at Wal-mart

I’ve been looking for a good pair of muck boots this year.  It goes along with the larger theme of wearing shoes without laces.  Considering how many times I change shoes every day, I figure I’ve wasted half of my life fiddling with those lousy laces.  Last winter Amy bought me a pair of slippers because our house has zero insulation, and I was immediately hooked.  They slip on and slip off in seconds.  I don’t even need to bend down.  So, I’ve been swapping all of my lace-up shoes with slip ons.  I have slippers for the morning, dress clogs for my 9-5, slip on casual shoes, and now muck boots for chores.  I’m pretty sure when it comes time to teach my kids how to tie their shoes, it’ll have to be mom’s job.  The rabbit does what now?  Around the tree and bakes a cake or something?  I have no idea.

Muck boots eluded me for quite some time.  There are plenty of boots out there, but they  cost anywhere from $75 up to three million for a pair of stupid rubber boots.  I must have been talking about them at work with alarming regularity, because a co-worker mentioned that he had found rubber boots at Wal-mart for $9!!!  The good news is that $9 is about what I was hoping to spend.  The bad news is that they were for sale in hell.

He brought them in - some awesome brown rubber boots with camouflage on the top.  I’m not a huge fan of camouflage, but luckily that also had basic black boots - albeit for $20 instead of $9.  So I made the trip to Wal-mart and bought the pair of boots I’d been looking for.  I figure I’ll spend the $60 I saved constructing our compost system.  That should get me pretty close to break even.  On one hand I’ve supported the exploitation of underpaid workers both at home and abroad, and given money to a corporation with no social or environmental conscience.  On the other hand, I’m saving my lawn clippings.  So I feel pretty good about that.
