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.

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.
.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
