    This might seem like a silly question, but lots of people keep saying they got their hygrometer/ thermometer at Walmart. What section would you find them in? I've looked in the pet section, the hardware section, and the kitchen section. I don't know where else to look. And when I asked the teenagers working there, they look at me like I'm crazy and have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Geez, embaressing, i work at walmart and cant think of the name of the department. They are located wiht the outdoor themometers if that helps. It should be fairly close to hardware if its set up like my store.

    And it wont actualy say Hydrometer on it. Get a springfield precision (little white one) for less than 7$. It takes both Temp and humidty readings and runs off 1 aaa battery. You can get a 4 pack for .97$

    if you dont want to go to Walmart - I got a thermometer and hygrometer set at petsmart tonight - the pack from Flucker's. They aren't digital, but thats what I would rather have (I have a thing against digital things like that)...It was $14 and some for the 2 of them.

    Near the plumbing stuff in the hardware section there's an aisle at my walmart with various thermometers, hygrometers, and weather stations. My other one I got in the reptile section of petsmart.

    Quote:Thanks, but I'd rather go to Walmart. The closest Petsmart is over an hour away and Walmart is 10 minutes. Besides I'm there 2-3x a week anyway, may as well try to get something I want for a change LOL!

    Also, eBay is full of that one for around the same price.
