Enjoy the Convenience and Savings by Shopping or the Walmart Smartphone App Today + Enter to #Win $25 Walmart GC

As a busy mom on the go I am always looking for ways to simplify and make my life easier, especially when it comes to shopping and meal planning.  Have you tried taking two toddlers shopping, even if you are just running in to grab a few things?  Nearly impossible and very stressful, right?  With my girls, Savannah is the one who loves to shop and could spend hours browsing around, while Bella likes the idea of going to a store, but within a few minutes she is done.  And, when she is done, she lets you know it, and you better be done, or you will hear it with her fussing and trying to climb out of the cart. 

One of my favorite stores to shop at is Walmart.  Just last year they redid our store, which is a few minutes from our house, and turned it into a Super Walmart with the food section.  It was like Christmas when the store re-opened, as I had been eagerly counting down the days.  Not only do I love Walmart's prices, but I love how they have everything that I need.  And, if the store doesn't have it in stock, I can order online through their website and have it shipped to my house, or to the store for pick up.  The convenience of ordering staple items like paper towels, toilet paper, diapers, etc. -- all that bulky stuff that you hate to lug to the car, while you have little ones in tow -- and having it shipped to your house is amazing. :-)  OK, little details like this get me happy, but, once I started using Walmart's ship to home and ship to store options, my life got so much easier.  

I love being able to place an order at while on my laptop at the wee hours of the AM and not have to worry about standing in the checkout line or having to load it into my car and then the house, as I can choose to have my order shipped (FREE if you spend over $50) to my house.  Or, when I am on the go and realize that we are running low on diapers, wipes, or paper products and detergents, I simply have to open the Walmart Mobile App and place an order -- simple and painless!  Now, how is that for convenience -- being able to order online from the website while on your home computer, or using a mobile app while on the go to place an order?  

By shopping for household items on or by using the Walmart smartphone app, you are giving yourself the option to shop wherever and whenever you want – at your own convenience.

I can't tell you how much time I have saved not having to get the girls ready, put them in the car, and then deal with rushing through the store to get my shopping and checkout done before Bella begins to fuss. And, on those rare occasions where my husband watches the girls so I can run to the store, the last thing I want to do with this precious "me time" is be shopping for household goods.  

Have you been outside lately?  For the past two days it has been raining here in New England.  And, then yesterday when I went to take the girls out, it was cold and raw out.  So much for summer?  It came and went so quickly.  But, we still have a few precious weeks of summer before Labor Day and then Back-to-School, and I plan to enjoy every minute of it with the girls.  And, that means not having to worry about shopping for household essentials.  Instead, I will enjoy the convenience of shopping online at or through the Walmart Mobile App I downloaded onto my phone, and just wait for the orders to arrive at my door -- which usually only takes a couple of days. :-)  I love pulling into the driveway and seeing the Walmart boxes waiting for me (Well, waiting for my husband to bring in the house), while knowing that I saved on precious time that I was able to spend with my family, as well as saved $$ on all the home essentials, without having to cut coupons or shop around for the best deal.  Walmart is my favorite store as they offer everything that I need at prices lower than competitive stores.  Who doesn't like to save, right?

Just last night, I walked out to the car with the girls and found my Walmart order waiting for me.  

It came at a great time as we were running low on diapers for Bella.  But, thanks to my online order placed a few days earlier through the Walmart Mobile app, I was able to save myself a trip to the store with the girls. :-)

So, as we begin to say good-bye to summer and get ready for the cold fall and winter months, why not experience the convenience, assortment, and savings of shopping for typical household items you purchase at Walmart by ordering them online at ( offers different payment options, including the option to Pay with Cash if you don’t want to use a credit card online) or through the mobile app, like I do.  You will love how quick and easy it is and more importantly get to spend these precious last weeks of summer with your family. 

Here are just a few end of summer memories that we have been making with the girls, without having to run to the store for household items, dog food, etc...

And, look Bella was able to get in some extra R&R and not have to worry about going shopping :-)

I can't wait to hear what you think about the convenience of shopping or by downloading and placing an order through the Walmart smartphone app.  And, with the holidays fast approaching, you will love not having to fight for parking or standing in lines. Instead, do all your holiday shopping from the comfort of your home and have everything delivered right to your day.  Holiday shopping could not get any easier! :-)
