The end of the year is a time to get reflective, to think about what has been done over the last 12 months.

Walmart is doing that, too, and they’ve tallied up all the purchases to find out which products were the top sellers in every state. It’s pretty freaking amazing.


Technology rules in Florida, Delaware, New Hampshire and California.

The top-selling item in Florida and Delaware was the Google Chromecast, while New Hampshire bought up Dell 15.6″ HD Touch Screen Laptops — fancy!

The Nintendo Switch console dominated sales in California.
