PUL at Walmart!

I seriously thought my mind was going when we were at Walmart yesterday and I found black PUL in the fabric section!

I looked it over really thuroughly for about 3 minutes to make sure thats what it was...and it is! And the best part? $5.88 a yard!!!!

Come to find out, with MOST (not all) Walmart centers, if you put in a paper request for an item to be carried in their store, and a second one is turned in within 30 days, they do a preliminary carry of that product for 60 days!!!!!

So, apparently somebody around here must use PUL. Maybe not for diapers, but still.

Just had to share that tidbit! If any of you mamas want it, just go to Customer Service and ask. Would be totally worth the paperwork time if it means getting that awesome price!

*Oh, and it was just 1ml. PUL

Lucky you...all the Walmarts around here have gotten rid of the fabric section! Last fall, I did notice Hancocks, Joanns, and Hobby Lobby had PUL with their Halloween costume fabrics... I can't remember how much it cost but I'm keeping an eye out this year...

Yes I was very disturbed that they removed our fabric section. I hate to have to go 30 minutes away for fabric. Hey Barbara maybe we should open a fabric store on this side of town.

I'd request them to sell more "reusable" dipes if everyone else did.

When they closed the Joann's in Morrow (January) there were rumors that they might be opening one at the new mall in McDonough (that just sounds WRONG!) The area manager told me that they were looking into it but it would be a year or so at least. There have also been rumors of a Hobby Lobby down here but nothing official (and they closed the one in Morrow too!) Of course, according to my husband, our house is the local fabric store...I tried to tell him Cottonmama has a bigger stash than me but he doesn't believe me.
