SAVING TIME AND MONEY ON GROCERIES AND EVERYDAY NEEDS
If you look up the saying, “busy as a bee,” my photo should be right beside it. Since I “retired,” I’ve gotten busier, and I’ve found some things had to give. For me, I decided to give up spending hours shopping in grocery stores and utilize home delivery and curbside pick-up instead.
Raise your hand if you are like me. 🙋 Keeping the house clean, the family fed, and making sure the pets are walked, etc., can be a full-time job. I’m always on a tight schedule, so placing an order at Walmart and having it delivered right to my home for free with my Walmart+ membership is a lifesaver for me. I save time AND money since I’m only ordering the items I need. I use this service for my groceries and my everyday needs, plus I also slip in an outfit or two from Time and Tru since those are carried in-store at my local Walmart. ($35 order min. Restrictions apply.)
Before I left for Tennessee to visit my parents, I ordered in some of Joe’s favorite items so he wouldn’t starve while I was away. I purchase Walmart’s private label brands (Great Value, Marketside, Sam’s Choice, and Freshness Guaranteed), which taste great and save us money He loves a Sam’s Choice Angus Burger for lunch with the Freshness Guaranteed Original Macaroni Salad. I prefer the Freshness Guaranteed Cranberries, Celery, and Pecan Chicken Salad, and I was able to make us both happy.
I don’t limit my orders to groceries and clothing; I also buy paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, and dog food in bulk and have them delivered to my door. These are heavy and cumbersome items, and I hate having to load them in the buggy, so getting them delivered is perfect! Now, if I could only figure out how to get them carried inside and put away. Lol! By using free delivery with my Walmart+ membership, I’ve saved lots of time because they do the shopping for me.
I have been a Walmart+ member since April, and I’ve placed countless delivery orders and saved a lot of money on food, supplies, and gas. I like to save money where I can to have extra cash for special items or trips. According to my account, I’ve saved $264 and 30 hours, and I’ve only been using this for a few months. This must-have membership allows me to save time, money, and so much more.
Every little bit adds up, especially when you fill up. Our Walmart and Sam’s Club have the best gas prices, and it is incredible how fast the savings add up.
- Save up to 10¢ per gallon at participating fuel stations
- Access member prices at Sam’s Club fuel centers
- Over 14,000 convenient locations in 48 states
Walmart makes it very convenient for its customers to shop, especially since most people have a store within 10 miles of their homes. You can also sign up for Walmart+, where you get Free Shipping with no order minimums (excludes most Marketplace items, location & freight surcharges) and Free Delivery (where available) with orders over $35. I take advantage of home delivery several times a week and love that small convenience.
Walmart+ members get 6 free months of Spotify Premium, so you can enjoy ad-free music.
I love my Walmart+ membership and all the benefits I enjoy. If you are a Walmart+ member, you can share a referral code with your friends, and you BOTH will get $20 off a future order. Here is MY code if you are not yet a member and would like to enroll now!
