Walmart Frugal Heroes Challenge! #walmartfrugalheroes

Walmart Canada

Last week Walmart Canada invited me to participate in the first-ever Frugal Heroes Challenge event at our local Walmart store. I was given a choice to pick one frugal challenge to participate and after some consideration I chose the “Get a head-to-toe summer outfit for mom for $100” challenge.

I received a $100 Walmart gift card in the mail and headed to Walmart on Thursday May 2nd with other frugal shoppers. I am not going to lie, it was pretty fun to indulge in a little shopping excursion where the objective was to buy stuff only for me. Usually as a Mom I am focused on my family so it was great to be able to indulge in some guilt free shopping.

I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to put together a full summer outfit (head-to-toe) that was only $100 but I arrived at my local Walmart with an open mind and excited to rise to the challenge!

I decided to browse and choose outfits without focusing or paying attention to pricing. I tried on a few outfits and shoes and only after choosing my favorites I sat down to calculate how much it was all going to be.

I couldn’t believe it! I was able to purchase a full summer outfit for myself including an accessory for $50.40! Almost half of the total amount given to me for the challenge! I was speechless.

Here are some photos of what I picked and my receipt!

You seriously can’t beat Walmart’s prices! I love my outfit and I love that I even had enough left over to get dinner ingredients and had money left in the gift card at the end! Amazing right?

  13. Super cute outfit! I’d totally wear it! Way to go! My money always goes a long way @WalMart. I love the price matching and take advantage of it every time I shop. I used to run around to 10 different stores every week but now thats a thing of the past. Did u know, they even price match directly from your smart phone!

  14. You did an amazing job! What a cute outfit, and i love the shoes as well, I also love the bracelet. I am frugal as well, I shop clearance and last year at Easter, i managed to shop for my disabled clients who each got chocolate, pants, a tshirt, and a hoodie for under $30! Going shopping for Easter again on Thursday, I can’t wait lol

  15. Do they call you super shopper too? Great buys!
