2014 Route 66 Road Trip, Cruisin' Music-- Part 5: Wal-Mart $5 CD Bins

I must learn to not go into those $5 Wal-Mart bargain CD bins (same with the DVD ones).  Not only is it time-consuming, but also can be expensive.  It's like going on a treasure hunt.  You never know what the next hand-ful will pull out.

One big problem is what to do with all the ones not selected.  Tossing them up onto the pile often results in a CD avalanche right into an area you're going to next.

Then, in my case, there is the pressing question, "Do I already have it?"  On more than one occasion, I already did and discovered it for a fact at home while going through my huge collection.  That then requires a trip to the Wal-Mart returns desk.  You don't really want to be in the situation where you have to stand in that line.  It's not the return process, it's waiting in that long, long line.

And, then, Sullivan, Missouri, is about 350 miles from home, kind of a long way to go to return a $5 CD.  But, I imagine you can return it to any Wal-Mart, but have never tried to do that.
