Walmart's Life Hack

Posted on
The title is correct, Walmart has done something that far too few take advantage of, for the HUGE advantage you are able to take! If your shopping habits mimic my own then you realize how your shopping trip for a few items quickly escalates into applying for a line of credit at the checkout to cover the bill. Let me give you an example of a typical grocery shopping experience. You go in with a list of all the food items you need to make all the meals you want for the entire week. Your entire week of food is planned out and you already know you are going to be lucky to cook half the meals, but you have already accounted for that by adding; pizza, chicken nuggets, fries, and I believe nachos, when done correctly, hits all the major food groups. First thing on your list is the fresh vegetables but then out of the corner of your eye…………. dill pickle chips, “stay strong” you mutter to yourself while everyone there thinks you are crazy, knowing that they are now thinking you’re crazy you quickly say “no you’re crazy”,…….. ahhhhh….. that oughta shut them up!

 

 

After grabbing the necessary vegetables and fruits you make your way to the dairy/eggs area, at the other end of the store, which means you have to pass by the gauntlet of treats and sweets. Needless to say you make it to the dairy/eggs side of the store………. with 4 bags of chips, Swedish Berries, some chocolate, cookies, pop, and whatever else would help a presentation on “What not to eat to avoid diabetes”. It is also fair to say it gets a lot worse with kids, add in; coloring books, toys, hidden treats, tears, whining, wandering around, shiny things, where did that come from, how did that get here, and a mindful of other stuff kids ram into the cart.

 

 

A solution has been found however! Walmart does pickup for your groceries and it is beautiful. All you have to do is create an account at Walmart.ca and click on the groceries portion of the website. After you are done all of your shopping you set a time for pickup. You simply show up in that time slot (don’t forget to bring some bags with you) and park in your designated parking area for pickup. You will then call a number to tell them you have arrived and within minutes they will come out and load up your vehicle, you don’t even have to get out of your seat! You sign a digital pad and drive off, saving both time and money!
Pulling up, calling to grab!
From time to time Walmart also adds vouchers to save even more usually a $5, $10 or $20 off an order of $50 or more, which adds up nicely. The active promo right now is save $10 off a $50 order with the code SHOP.

Select Superstores also have this service but I have never used it before but I’m sure it’s very similar. Anyway here is a great way to save yourself some time and some money! Try it out, let us know what you think of the service!
