Grocery Pick Up

Do you still go in to the grocery store to do you shopping? I do occasionally, but for my weekly shopping I use Walmart Grocery Pick Up. I have been using it for about 4 years now and I have to say even with its hick-ups its still amazing.

I hate shopping, must less grocery shopping. I don’t like not knowing where an item is or dodging carts in the isles. Let’s be real people shop like they drive! Also, I’m lazy and exhausted by the time I get home!

About 4 years ago Walmart started their grocery pick up and it opened in our area. Surprisingly at the Little Neighborhood Market before the Super Center. Non the less, I tried it. I had a new born at the time and the ease of throwing her in the car driving to the store and having someone load my car with my already shopped for items was amazing!!

Now sometimes there would be items that were not in stock and I either had to go with out or go to a different store to purchase the item. But, on the flip side, the substitutions are fantastic! You purchase the smaller sized item or the store brand and if they didn’t have it they would give you the bigger size or name brand at no charge. I am not sure if this is the same or if they have updated their policy, because I feel like they were loosing money.

There are times I have been frustrated because I do not receive the correct item, like today. I shopped for my Christmas baking. I ordered 4 instant vanilla puddings and ended up with 3 vanilla and one banana cream! What??? I guess we will be making banana cream pudding soon! LOL

I have close friends and family tell me all the time that they like to pick their produce and couldn’t rely on someone else to that for them. I have had a couple fo times where the produce is not so good. I go on the app and give my feed back and they refund my not so good produce and I can throw it away.

You can also miss judge the size of product you need. I cannot tell you how many times I come home unload my groceries and I have the teeny tiny version of what I wanted. Like solo cups! I ordered the shot glass size and thought I was ordering an 8 oz size!

You might be asking, “Ashley, why do you do the pick up and not delivery?” 1. It’s free and I really don’t mind driving to the store. I try to schedule our pick up after church while we are already out. 2. The delivery services cost money and you should really tip your driver. 3. You can send back an item that was shopped for and you no longer want. When tis delivered you have to take it back to the store and return it. That defeats the convenience of not shopping in the store!

Short story long, If you have not tried Walmart Grocery Pick up, I highly recommend it. Its free and a game changer in my weekly routine. Also know that Sams club does it as well.
