    Latest Walmart Finds for DIY

    I've been working on a few projects recently and have picked up some nice finds at Walmart. First I found an IMUSA mug on clearance for $1. Picture 146.jpg Picture 145.jpg

    I've also been working on some carbon felt stoves and looking for good sources of little tins to put the carbon felt in. Altoid tins work pretty well but I picked up a 4 pack of stainless steel condiment cups for $0.88. They weigh about .65 oz each, so they're a little heavy, but it should last forever. I'll post pics later of these if anyone is interested.

    Finally, today at lunch I found almost 11 yards of woodland camo material in the only Walmart near here that has fabric. The bolt was $1.50 a yard and had some generic tag on it that claimed the fabric was about 34% cotton and the rest poly and nylon if I'm not mistaken. It's not a ripstop fabric, but feels like a medium/heavy weight polyester fabric. Doesn't seem to be coated and I don't know if it is down-proof or not. Might make a good hammock though.

    COOL. Did the condiment containers have lids?

    i picked up a whole bolt of nylon/poly/ect blend for $5 from walmart. I talked to the nice little old lady about what it ment by 'blend' and she told me that they melt all the scrapes and make a mutant 'blend.' so if anyone out there comes across the mistery bolts, thats what it is

    What I was planning on doing was to use a balloon and rubber band to make a seal for the condiment cups.

    Condiment cups should be sealed up by nothing other than a condom. Just a suggestion.

    online search for WM inventory

    FWIW, once you find the stock number for a WalMart item, you can use their website to do a search for it to find which WM stores in your area are stocking it. I did that to get my IMUSA mugs.
