Can't afford a hotel room ? Try Wal-Mart

If you thought Walmart was just a retailer, read this. Skyler Bartels, a University student, spent three days (and nights) at a Walmart store. Really living there. Eating, sleeping, playing Video games, checking out the DVDs, never leaving the Walmart Hotel.

He bought meals at the in-store Subway sandwich shop, but was able to catch only brief naps in a restroom stall or on lawn chairs in the garden department.

Other shoppers and employees didn't pay much attention until the end of his stay. Wal-Mart said Bartels neither violated store policy nor broke the law.

So the next time you visit New York City and can't afford the expensive hotels, you can head to a nearby Walmart store in New Jersey. They are open 24 hours a day.
