One of the most overwhelming things to do with infant or toddler twins, and a six year old is grocery shopping. Thankfully shopping with kids just got easier, and I am excited to share how with you today.
Shopping With Kids is Stressful
So a basic shopping trip with just myself and the kids used to be crazy. I get to the store and drive around hoping to find a cart return with a family cart in it so I could just load up all three kids. When that doesn’t work, I park near a cart return with a regular cart in it. I then put one baby in a carrier on my back, one in the cart, and then I pray that my 6 year old will be well behaved and stay with me in the store.
One time I actually tried out pushing the double stroller and having my 6 year old push one of the smaller carts. That ended with him actually knocking over a display….YIKES!
So now I only go grocery shopping either while my 6 year old is in morning kindergarten or we all go as a family. While it is easier, we still have to carry the twins in, and hope there is an empty family cart. A lot of times though- this is how we end up.
Two separate carts and still praying my 6 year old stays with us.
With the holidays I not only have the usual issues to deal with but now we are fighting insane crowds and having to get in and out of the car into the cold. Seriously, grocery shopping is one of those things that I would pay someone else to do for me….
But I don’t have to.
Enter in Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup
This has changed my life you guys! Now grocery shopping is so easy. I can do my grocery shopping from the comfort of my own home while relaxing watching television at night.
I can shop for all of our grocery needs, from meat to produce, online. I can see my total as I shop so I know where I am as far as my grocery budget goes. Once I submit my order, I simply select a pick-up day and time. During check out you can also decide if you are willing to receive substitute items (usually a different brand) or not. Once you submit your payment information you get a confirmation email right away.
The online shopping works out great because I can pick up the groceries on my schedule. Sometimes I pick them up while running errands, but my favorite is that I can do the shopping, but have Mike pick it up on his way home from work.
Once you submit your order and pick up time, Walmart has their experts do the shopping for you. They pick out the freshest produce and other items (Guaranteed or your money back). They get them ready for you so that your order is ready during your one hour pick-up window. Best of all, there is no fee for having Walmart do the shopping for you.

The pickup is super easy too. Select stores have check-in through the Walmart Grocery app (iOS) or Walmart Grocery Check-In app (android). If your store does not have the app check-in, you simply call in when you are about 15 minutes away. When you arrive you park, call to let them know you are there, and they bring your order out to you. Check out how easy our pickup was with this short video:
