Oh my gosh you guys, there is so much to do as we gear up for this move next week. I’ve been trying so hard to keep the house looking perfect while keeping the kids entertained. We put a bunch of their toys in suitcases in the garage and this morning they begged me to get them out. I felt really bad because I didn’t want to pull everything out and then have to clean it all up again because we might have people coming to the house later. This is where Walmart+ literally saved me! So thank you Walmart for being a sponsor on this blog and post!
Have you heard of it? Walmart’s new membership program. And it’s freaking awesome! It launched on September 15th and I signed up that day! You guys know I love Walmart and I get a bunch of stuff there so when I saw they were launching this membership I immediately signed up. Since I signed up a week ago, I have used it 4 times!!!! Heck yes for free unlimited delivery (with a $35 minimum – restrictions may apply)! Delivery can get SO expensive so I really appreciate this. And oh my goodness did it come in clutch this morning. I really needed something to occupy the kids so they didn’t tear apart the house, plus I was exhausted from my trip yesterday, so I got online to order a few craft kits for the kids like this Elmers Color Changing Slime kit and a set of rainbow Play-Doh for under $5 and no joke it was at my doorstep later in the day. I couldn’t believe how fast it was! Mom crafts to the rescue!
I just truly can’t get over how helpful it was to order something and have it at my home so quickly. And honestly, I really appreciate being able to spend less time in stores right now. I definitely plan on using Walmart+ to order last-minute groceries when I need things for the kids lunch and I was even thinking how helpful it would be for last-minute birthday gifts. I always feel like whenever one of Molly’s friends has a birthday, I forget about a gift until the very last second! A lot of birthdays are drive-by birthdays these days but we still always want to drop off a gift! I know, for me, this membership will pay for itself within the first month (based 2 deliveries per week with non-member $7.95 delivery fee).
I also picked up an apple spice candle to burn in the kitchen because it makes it feel so cozy for fall and I’m really trying to fully enjoy every inch and square foot of this house before we move next week (and we might have more showings so I’ll need a nice candle). I grabbed socks for Molly because well, the ones she had on had holes in them so I threw some in my cart. Ha! You can also get groceries so I grabbed strawberries and bananas for the kids because we were running low.
Not only do you get free unlimited delivery ($35 minimum, exclusions apply) with the membership but, with their member prices on fuel, you can save 5 cents per gallon on fuel at all Walmart and Murphy stations. There are over 1,500 locations throughout the country. Gas can get so expensive so I will take that 5 cent savings if we move to Tennessee!!! Every little bit adds up, especially when you fill your tank!
Another really cool feature about being a member is that you can use the mobile scan & go feature on their app. You can scan an item while you’re in the store and pay for it and walk out. So it’s contact free check out and you get to check out quickly in the self-checkout area which is pretty awesome. I’m all for anything that helps keep me and my family safer.
And last but not least, the absolutely hilarious thing that I think I’m going to buy. You guys know how we have that scary looking porcelain boy doll that Kevin and I have been hiding around the house? Well, I found a couple terrifying female ones and I’m gonna buy one and really freak him out when that shows up in the house! Ha! He doesn’t usually read my blog so I don’t think he’ll see that, so don’t tell him! Which one do you think I should get option 1 or option 2? Bahahaha! Tell me your votes below!!
Before you go, I partnered with Walmart for this post and I’m so glad I did because I can truly say that I will be a Walmart+ member for life! You get all the benefits I talked about in this post for only $98 a year or $12.95 per month. That’s just $2 a week for the annual plan based on 52 weeks! I’ll make that up in the first month from saving on shipping charges, gas savings and time saved by not having to go to the store. It was truly a lifesaver for me this morning and I plan on using it all the time!!! Seriously, get it and sign up here. You’ll be so happy you did! What would you love to use it for? Let’s chat in the comments!
