Walmart Grocery Pickup

Morning friends! I have some exciting news for you today! Did you know Walmart offers a curbside grocery service? If you live in a bigger town you've probably had access to it for awhile, but it's new for us here in Abilene, Texas. I highlighted my experience over at The Abilene Post, and you can read all about it here. The short summary is I was very impressed, and I will be using this service again. (still go read it! Pretty please!) There are lots of good information and specifics in my post! 



Here is what the pickup area looked like in Abilene. I pulled up, and called the number. Then they brought out my groceries to me!



All while Fisher did this....


Charles, my new best friend, wheeled my groceries out in these big blue baskets. It had a layering system of baskets so nothing was smashed. He loaded me up, and I was out of the parking lot 7 minutes after I pulled up. 

I headed home, and unpacked. Here are my actual groceries. 

Bananas were slightly green. (my favorite!)

I didn't find a single bruise on my apples. 

The orange juice and cheese were cold. 


They even placed fragile stickers over bag handles for certain items.

I needed wipes!

And several random items from around the store. I'm so thankful I didn't have to go track down all these goodies. 

The only downside for me was all the plastic grocery sacks. We typically bring our reusable bags to the store. 

Overall I was very impressed. I'm not typically a Walmart shopper. I've only been a few times in the last year, but I'm hooked now. I didn't have to leave my car, and it was quick! There were no tears and I didn't have to sweat. All of this is a win for me!

I will probably start ordering all my boxed items (cereal, breakfast bars, crackers etc) from Walmart. It will also be a great place to order household goods and other essentials. Then I can pop over to my favorite grocery store to pick out my own meats and produce. It'll cut down on my grocery time and still give my the flexibility to buy the quantity and quality of goods that I want. On busy weeks, I'll let Walmart do all my shopping!!
