Save Time and Money Online Grocery Shopping – Plus $10 off

A few weeks ago, I shared on my stories that I finally decided to look more into the “pick up” option for Walmart groceries. Y’ALL, I WILL NEVER GO BACK!!! I wanted to share it with you today because I would say it’s a step below life-changing. For me, anyway.

 

I don’t enjoy grocery shopping. I dread it because I feel like there are so many other things I could do with that time. I always forget things and have to go back to different isles and am all over the place. I also impulse buy like woah. I will see something that looks good, or that I want to try, and before I know it, it adds $30 to my total. Whoops.

 

I typically always grocery shop at Walmart anyway because their prices are just better than everywhere else. The one I go to is only 6 minutes from our house, so getting there isn’t the time suck. It’s walking around looking for everything. I’d much rather not have to do it. Plus, Jake hates going, too, so I’m usually alone. Now, enter the online option.

 

It’s the easiest thing. Go onto Walmart.com/grocery, and in the top right corner, there is a little icon that looks like milk and a tomato. If you hover over it, it says Grocery. Click that, and you’ll be asked to pick your store location for pick up, and then to reserve a time to pick everything up.

 

Because Jake and I are on a meal plan right now, we have a specific grocery list that I’m able to go down and add everything I need to the cart. This is where the savings comes in, because I’m no longer impulse buying things that look good. I can stick to my list and get only what we need. It also prevents us from wasting food by only getting what we need for the week. If you don’t have a set grocery list, I suggest planning out your meals for the week, and making your list off of the recipes to ensure you have everything.

 

As embarrassing as it is to admit, I’m typically in such a hurry to get done that I actually forget to look at my list when I’m there and I forget things. I actually have done that with the online version, too. But the cool thing is, there is a window of time to adjust your order. So if you place it and then change your mind and either want to take something off or add something on, it will tell you how long you have to do so.

 

I was curious if this would allow me to get things other than groceries and it DOES! I can get dog treats and hair things and shampoo. All of the things. Add to the level of wonderful. There is a $30 minimum for the grocery service, but I think that’s a really easy threshold to hit. Jake was also nervous about them picking our produce for us, thinking they would put less effort into what they gave us but we’ve had no issues with that so far. Everything looks like what we would pick ourselves.

 

So how it works after you check out online, they will shop for you, weight your produce items at the end and charge you the total. When you show up, you type in your name to the kiosk, they tell you which numbered space to park in, they bring out your groceries and put them in your car for you, go over everything and you sign off and leave. If they were out of something, they will offer a comparable substitution which you can either accept or decline. And that’s it! You’re done.

  • Simple is always better. I tried so hard to figure out what I was going to wear for Easter. I spent a good hour trying things on the week before. I sent my sister tons of pictures asking her thoughts. In the end, I wasn’t really satisfied with any of them for some reason so I decided to just go with an outfit I know I love and feel good in. For some reason wearing white just makes me feel super put together. And I managed to not spill anything on myself or get chocolate on my pants which is a major win y’all. .

We don’t need to overthink things so much. It just causes unnecessary stress. I do like to plan ahead because it saves me time, but I also should have realized sooner that the dress I was trying to make work just wasn’t working. Even though I love that dress, it doesn’t flatter me how I want it to and it might be time to let it go. Don’t be afraid to let go of things that don’t give you exactly what you need. You don’t have to settle, something else will always come along. Or you probably already have something else in your closet (or life, this isn’t limited to clothes!) that’s even better than what you’re trying to make work!
  • Happy Easter 🐰❤️
  • Casual Good Friday ❤️ this was yesterday’s work outfit but I jazzed myself up before we went to church with Jakes mom and stepdad last night. I cried like a baby. Good Friday always both kicks my ass and reminds me how blessed we all are. 
The beautiful KC weather this weekend is so exciting!! I’m so happy when it’s Spring weather 😍 Have a beautiful Saturday!!
  • “There is beauty in simplicity”
My simple wardrobe makes me so happy and I love the seemingly endless possibilities I have with it. Having a love of neutrals really works well for me with this! 
Happy Good Friday ❤️
  • The only things in my life these days are the things I really want there. This isn’t limited to the stuff in my house and the clothes in my closet. This includes my job, relationships, hobbies, everything. I’ve even started eating better as a by-product of simplifying my life and I just feel better over all. .

By removing the things and people that don’t make me happy, I have more time and energy for the things that do that I used to put off and not prioritize like I should have. We spend so much of our lives being “busy”. But what are we busy with? Most of it is actually unimportant when you break it down. .

I say no to things much more now and that allows me to spend more of my time relaxing and enjoying life. I used to constantly feel rushed or like I should be doing something. If I wasn’t moving, I felt like I was wasting my time. But the truth is, resting and just being home with Jake and the boys is my happy place. It brings me so much joy, so that’s what my priority is. .

Having more time to just BE has been amazing. Being more picky in my relationships has helped me really value the ones I hold most dear and has brought me to an amazing new job because I wasn’t willing to settle for anything less. Respect yourself and your time and prioritize the things that matter most to you. Life’s too short to live any other way.
  • “When you love what you have, you have everything you need.” So many wonderful things have happened since I simplified my life. Changing my outlook on life wasn’t really intentional, but I’m so thankful it happened when it did. I was kind of at a breaking point. Fed up with where I was and how things were going with my old job. Struggling with depression and comparison. I knew something had to change but I had no idea what. Simplicity was that thing. .
.
Now, I spend way less time on social media. I deleted Facebook off my phone and haven’t  looked at it in weeks. I’m much happier without it. I read a lot more. I’m getting much better at ignoring the impulse to pick up my phone and when I am on it, to compare my life to the perfect pictures people post. I even cut a few inches off my hair! 💇🏻‍♀️ I want things as easy as they can be right now. It takes a lot of stress out of my life. Try to go a whole weekend without social media and see how awesome it feels!
