IN MY LIFE
Today before starting work, I tried something new: Walmart’s online grocery pickup! The folks at Walmart reached out to let me know this free service was now available in Nashville and asked if I’d be willing to try it out – so I jumped at the chance! After all, who wouldn’t want to try something that’s more convenient and free for something I need to do every week – grocery shopping.
Walmart’s online grocery pickup service not only saved me time from not shopping in the store, but by shopping online, I was able to find EXACTLY what I was looking for with their simple search feature (and even some things I’ve bought elsewhere for years for a lot more money that I never thought Walmart would carry). Best of all, the service is completely FREE and still offers me the same everyday low prices found in stores.
If you want to be a #grocery hero like me, you can check out this service here:
Tonight the kids and I will also be heading to Regal Opry Mills Theaters to see a preview of the new movie “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life” – which seems ALL to fitting for the life stage my kids are in right now 😉 I’ll be sure to let you know what I think as soon as I’m able to talk about it.
