I feel like I am pretty good at sticking to a grocery list. I mean, for years I have meal planned (of course I have fallen off the wagon a few times) but I have restraint in the store.
For the most part.
Until I get to the seasonal items or if my kids are with me. When that is the case game over!
But there is a solution now to put impulse grocery shopping to an end! Online grocery shopping is going to change your life! With five kids underfoot, it is already a game changer for my family. My husband is even impressed with it!
I have had some friends tell me about it and how much it has changed their grocery budget and just saving time for their family overall.
Let me be honest, there are days that I dread the hours ahead because I know I have to grocery shop. I think of excuses to not go. I put it off and put it off.
Then, finally when we’ve used every square of toilet paper, ever last paper towel and all of the Kleenex boxes are empty, I can fight it no more. I have to go to the store.
There is ONE THING you have to do in order to use Walmart Grocery’s online service. You just need to place your order the day before. That’s it! Easy enough, right?
I want to show you just how simple this is.
I literally pulled up Walmart Grocery in one tab on my computer and my freezer meal plan list grocery list in another tab. I clicked back and forth and added everything from the list to the shopping cart that was not already in my pantry, fridge or freezer.
That is it!
Here is everything I ended up with in my cart.
I spent $100 and some change to get all of the things I needed to assemble freezer meals.
I also grabbed sides as well- fresh produce and all!
Then you select your pickup location.
You reserve your time slot. They give you one hour window options.
You enter your payment info and you’re done.
They give you pickup details as well so that you know exactly where to go once you arrive at the store.
Don’t believe how easy this was?
Watch our trip as we went to pick everything up- even with kids in the car!
Here is a quick video of some of our cooking process using the pressure cooker to quickly cook FROZEN chicken breasts:
Here is what we made for the freezer:
- Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Bake
- Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff
- Chicken and Ranch Macaroni
- Taco Soup
- Upside Down Frito Pie
- Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Walmart is now my grocery hero!! Seriously, where has this been my entire life?
Don’t wait like I did! Get started today!
Grocery Budget for Family of 8
Each month I spend a lot on groceries. That said, you have to remember I am cooking for 8 plus people at any given time. We have family who lives near by (grandparents, adult siblings, grandchildren (yes, I am 41 and have grandchildren) and can quickly increase our total dinner count to 13 plus people!
I do all of my grocery shopping online. As a homeschool mom with six kids still at home I have to streamline as many tasks and responsibilities as possible
My grocery budget includes all food, toiletries, paper products, etc.
