I’m going to be fully honest. There have days when I have lost track of Carter’s inventory and either diapers, milk, wipes, or his favorite snacks run out and I need them ASAP. And even when the inventory is low, there just come some times when running out to the store is something I really can’t do and when ordering online, that shipping fee can be daunting when you only need to order a couple of things. That’s why I am super excited to share my newest ‘stay at home working mom hack’ (#SAHWM) and that is Walmart+. Having this membership has made a lot of things such as ordering online so much better, and I want to share the benefits with you and how I take advantage of them all.
WALMART+ BENEFITS & HOW THEY HELP ME AS A #SAHWM
Walmart+ Free Shipping, No Order Minimum on Items from Walmart.com
With the Walmart+ membership, you can get Walmart+ free shipping from Walmart.com with no order minimum*. It’s a lifesaver for me because when I only need to order one or two things such as diapers or a few snacks to replenish the collection of Carter’s favorite snacks, I don’t have to wait to order other things to meet the minimum purchase requirement to get free shipping or feel defeated when I end up paying more for shipping than the actual order total. The only aspects that are excluded from this benefit are freight and oversized items as well as Marketplace items.
Delivery from Your Local Store
When you have a little one, heading into the store becomes more of a project than many think. From packing their diaper bag up to loading and unloading them from the car and also getting in and out of the store before a major breakdown, it can give you anxiety just thinking about it. Another Walmart+ benefit is free delivery* from your local Walmart store. Groceries as well as other items and be ordered for delivery and be right to your door as soon as the same day. When we needed to restock on diapers and a few toys to keep Carter entertained while at home, I put in an order on a Sunday morning and had the items delivered to my front door from my local store the next day. *There is a $35 minimum and some restrictions may apply but either way you’re getting the same low everyday prices you expect from Walmart.
Member Prices on Gas
Who doesn’t love saving money on gas? Walmart+ gives you 5 cents off per gallon at Walmart and Murphy stations and gives you access to member pricing at Sam’s Club gas stations. So when you need to save a little more to possibly get the little one(s) special treats while you’re out and about, being a member of Walmart+ will make you feel like you’re doing it right. I mean, that’s where my extra savings go.
HOW WALMART+ IS MY STAY AT HOME WORKING MOM HACK
Walmart+ is a different kind of membership that provides so many benefits that give me time back in my day to play with my little man and get things done around the house that needs to get done. With Walmart+ I’m saving time and money – both things I can use for the little guy.
The $98 a year ( or $12.95 / month ) is worth the price. I mean, you end up getting more time back in your day and money back in your wallet from the savings. By using my membership, I have been able to keep toys and snacks stocked in my home so that little man is never without anything that he needs and he’s always fed and entertained. And for those who don’t know, a fed and entertained toddler is a toddler who will get lost in his own world while you’re able to get work done at your day job as well as around the house.
