Walmart Grocery pickup. Oh, my goodness! There is nothing in this modern age that has been quite as awesome as this. I am seriously wondering if it was my personal prayers that prompted God to tickle the ears of some Walmart GENIUS to come up with this. We all knew it was a matter of time, but still… It’s sooooooooo awesome!! It’s awesome enough to give it its own personal blog post.
I remember the first time I saw it was going to finally happen. It was a bit of a rush when I saw Walmart advertising the idea and that it would eventually come to my “area”. I signed up my email address with Walmart (I may have signed up like 5 times in anticipation… I wanted to make sure they didn’t forget!) to inform me the moment it would come to my area. But when I got the news… OH! pure bliss. The heavenly angels were shining down upon me. I could feel the warmth of the sun shining through the dark patchy sky.
I remember fondly, sitting down that first time to put in my very first order. I sat IN MY BED in the evening, over a hot cup of tea and proceeded to fill my virtual shopping cart. The moment my fingers clicked my trackpad to complete the order, I could barely contain my excitement! I couldn’t wait to pick up the first order. I was so giddy!
When the moment finally came to pick up our goods, I sent my husband to go-get-it. I can hear the hallelujah chorus as I type. Can you hear it??? Long gone are the days I would have to get myself and all of our children ready to spend 2 hours at Walmart walking the aisles. Fighting with the kids about every cookie and candy treat they found in their boredom. Then another hour waiting in line with cranky babies who need their diapers changed. Praise God. Yall… I believe this may have been divine intervention. You may think I kid… maybe I do a little, but I do remember those prayers… and God delivered.
Speaking of delivery, Also awesome- PUBLIX delivery… and No I don’t get paid to say any of this… it’s just THAT awesome. It cost like ten dollars to have them deliver to my house in an hour or two, and they are super awesome. They even text me personally when they are putting my order together and send pictures if they have to swap something out. I don’t use this service as often, I’ve used it twice so far, but my stress levels have lowered knowing that these options are available to me! They have changed my life Yall!!.
I’ve heard Kroger has pickup too and that they are awesome, but Walmart is on my husband’s way home from work… 😉
If you are a mom, and you haven’t used these available services… You are missing out. There was a time when I enjoyed going grocery shopping to get out of the house, but with Five kids, I just don’t have that kind of time anymore and If I have “mom” time I don’t want to spend it grocery shopping!
