Walmart Comes to MY House Now!!!

If you have kids, you know what a hassle grocery shopping can be if you have your brood with you.  And you know that it can go from a "hassle" to a complete disaster faster than you can scold them for licking the floor.  What is a Mom to do???

Well, you can shop in the middle of the night, when the monsters....I mean, kids...are sleeping.  BUT, there is a better solution!  Wanna know what it is?


Ok, not really.  BUT, Walmart WILL bring your groceries to you with their new program, Walmart To Go!

I have used this service three times now, and I am not ashamed to say that I am ADDICTED.  AAAAA-DDICTED.

I got online and filled my cart (which was much faster and easier than you would expect, especially if you have a list).  The options include images, so there is no question about what you are clicking on.  The minimum order is $30 in my area, but as all of us know, groceries add up fast, so it shouldn't be a problem.

I was pretty sure that I would have to sell my first born to pay for the delivery, but was pleasantly surprised at the shipping options...$7 for a two hour delivery window, $5 for a 4 hour window and *FREE* pick up at the store.  Totally worth my sanity.

After I chose my delivery window and submitted my cart, I got to mess around on Facebook while some ELSE picked out my groceries...I even got to indicate whether or not substitutions were okay with me for each item on my list.

The delivery driver gave me a call each time when he was about 10 minutes away...he brought my groceries up to my door for me, and all I had to do was sign off on the order!  Everything was perfect...even the frozen/refrigerated items were cold.

My favorite part?  (I mean, my favorite part besides the fact that I do not have to set foot into a store with my kids, who turn into monkeys for some reason when they hit those automatic doors?)  I do not have to huff the darn groceries, especially the four gallons of milk, from my car to my house.  Back and forth, back and annoys me.  And they are heavy.  And the last thing I want to do after shopping for the stuff is lug it into my house!
