University Store vs. Walmart

Often while browsing the University Store and looking at prices, I break down in tears in the middle of the store. Then, after crying in the fetal position for a few minutes, I collect myself, suck it up, and buy a pack of fifteen dollar pens (no really,  G2 8 packs are $13.99 plus tax). This usually gets me thinking of how much money I could save if I bought everything from Walmart instead. So I’ve compiled a list comparing University Store prices to Walmart’s prices.

After my research was complete, I came to the conclusion that the only time it is acceptable to spend any form of money in the University Store is when purchasing Goldfish. And don’t even THINK about going there for toiletries. You’re better off at Walmart.
