Well I must say that I love Walmart a little more now. I love WalMart for it’s affordable food selections, but I just couldn’t fathom actually going to the store to grocery shop. The lines are usually long no matter when I would go, and I can never seem to find what I’m looking for when I go. So I kept hearing about the option to order your groceries online from the Walmart app and picking them up curbside. I never really thought I’d use it because I figured it was too good to be true. Well was I wrong.

One night I made a grocery list of items that I needed, but knew I didn’t want to go searching for my items when I got off work the next morning. Then I thought well let me try out this Walmart pickup and see how I feel about it. I was a little apprehensive at first because I hadn’t heard about it from anyone that I knew. I figured it would be perfect for me considering I love to shop online.

I went on the Walmart app and searched all the items I needed. It didn’t take me but about 10-15 minutes because I only needed a few items. I ordered a mix of items from bread to produce. So once you order, you have the option to allow them to substitute any item that’s out of stock or not available. I checked out and that was that. You will have to select a time to pick up your items before you actually order so just keep that in mind.

They sent me an email to let me know when my items were ready and had me to notify them when I was on my way via the Walmart app. I let them know which parking spot I would be in based on the number at the parking spot on the side of the building.

Once I pulled up I didn’t have to wait but a few minutes, and the associate came to my car. She explained to me any substitutions I had and allowed me to look at the fruit I ordered to make sure it was to my liking. She even went back to get me an item that I mistakenly forgot to allow for substitutions. She was very friendly and was willing to go back and get anything I might have missed.

Final Thoughts

I absolutely loved my experience shopping for my groceries on the Walmart app. I didn’t have to worry about waiting in line or getting out of my car in the cold rain. I think it’s perfect for those of us who tend to go to the grocery store for a few items that we need and leave out with a whole bunch of stuff we don’t need. I tend to do that a lot. I love the convenience of shopping for my groceries online. The service is also absolutely free, so why not take advantage of it. It even saves the items you purchase so that you are able to easily add them the next time you shop. It is perfect for moms on the go or those of us who work at night who are just too tired to shop for groceries early in the morning. So for that reason, I love Walmart a little more now!!!

Simply download the app and start shopping and saving. You’ll be glad you did!!!
