Hey friends, please tell me you are using Walmart’s new grocery pick-up!
If you aren’t, do yourself a life-changing favor by reading this post and watching the video above. Your budget, time, and sanity depend on it!
I know that grocery shopping can be a huge budget-buster when you’re a food allergy family.
It’s so hard to tell our kids no to the $10 dairy-free personal pan pizza or the $7 box of granola bars. Not to mention, we sort of need that half gallon of plant milk for five whopping dollars each week.
Trust me, I struggle month after month and year after year with keeping our food budget in check while making sure our food allergy family gets to eat as “normally” as possible.
And sadly, we don’t even eat out with food allergies. I crash the food budget solely on groceries and cooking at home.
The struggle. is. real. And I’ve been doing this twelve years.
But finally! I’m finding some budget relief with grocery shopping online!
When I plan out my menu and my grocery cart on the computer from the comfort of home, I can track exactly how much is in my cart and how much I’m spending. I can easily remove items I decide aren’t top priority, and keep the spending right on par!
I don’t know about you, but I’m at a stage in my life where the last place I want to spend two hours is in grocery store.
Give me a coffee shop with my laptop, a day at the park with my kids, or a date with my hubby any day!
Heck, I even deem cleaning the house as a better two hours spent than maneuvering a cart between tight isles and inevitably failing at self check-out.
I wish I had this 10 years ago with two babies always in tow. Grocery pick-up was only a dream then, and it would have been a huge help to my mental health. For real. I dreaded grocery shopping with baby carriers, cheerios, and unavoidable diaper changes!
And let me tell you, the big boy years aren’t any better. Know why? Because big boys like food and those puppy dog eyes can talk me into a month’s supply of Pringles, Oreos, and Poptarts no problemo. I’m weak. I’m pathetic.
Use Walmart grocery pick-up for planning holiday meals like I did in this video. Nothing busts a budget like holidays, but you can stay on track this way!
