If you haven't used the Walmart pick up service yet - You need to jump on board. This is probably the best thing to happen to grocery shopping since self check out lanes were invented. You REALLY need to check into this FREE service.
If you would have told me six months ago that I would be promoting Walmart - I would have never believed you. And yet, here I am - telling all of you to go to Walmart.com and start shopping.
I could get really used to doing my grocery shopping on the computer while I'm sitting in a rocking chair on my front porch.
The process of using the Pickup service is simple.
Number One: Shop
It's way easier than you think to browse through the items on my grocery list and select the brands and sizes that I want to order on WalMart.com. I can even choose whether or not I want an item to be substituted with a different brand if the one that I selected is unavailable.
Number Two: Pay
After I complete my shopping I can pay for my items online with a credit card.
Number Three: Select a PIckup Time
Choose a one hour time slot to pick up your grocery order. If you need to pick up your order in an hour - you can pay a 4.95 fee and get your order in ONE HOUR!!
Number Four: Pick Up Your Order
Fifteen minutes prior to my designated pickup time, the super awesome WalMart associate calls me to let me know that my order is ready. When I pull into one of the designated Pickup Up parking spots in the parking lot, I call the number on the sign and within 5 minutes, that same awesome WalMart associate appears with my order.
She hands me my bag of produce first and asks me to look over it to make sure everything is perfect. Next she hands me my fresh meats and insists that I inspect them for quality. Meanwhile, she is loading the rest of my order into my trunk. She also shows me any substitutions that were made and then prints out a receipt for my order.
Now if they only had a service where I could bring someone home with me to put all of my groceries away.
Now for the bad news - this service is not available at every Walmart. I drive 22 miles to the nearest Walmart with Pickup service. (Totally worth it by the way.)
Now onto our menu for the week.
Monday: Turkey Lasagna
Columbus Day!!! We are planning some Fall Family Fun activities so it's the perfect night for a crock pot dinner.
