The Summertime is here and there’s so much to get ready for. From getting new clothes for the entire family as well as summer necessities for outdoor activities such as games, grilling essentials, and even snacks to eat while eating outside on a cool evening, there’s so much to gather so that this summer is one to remember. In any other year, I have been scrambling to find things and get them in a timely fashion, but this year, it’s been super easy because of the stay-at-home working mom hack that I have been sharing with you all for the past year.
If you missed my mom hack, let me give you a quick reminder. At the end of last year, our family signed up for a Walmart+ membership and we haven’t looked back since. It has been the biggest mommy lifesaver because I have been able to shop with ease and get all my needs delivered in a quick fashion and never really have to visit the store. Because as many parents know, shopping with a toddler is a huge feat.
SHOP SUMMERTIME ESSENTIALS FROM WALMART:
I’ve been saying this for quite some time now, and I’ve even been telling all of the family and friends that I have talked to – the Walmart+ membership has so many benefits that you’ll end up asking yourself why you didn’t register sooner. I talked about how this membership has been my stay at home working mom hack and how I have used the membership to shop toddler toys and essentials directly from Walmart, but I want to, again, give you all another recap on how I have been using the membership and how it’s already helping me to prepare for the summer.
The Walmart+ membership gives you access to free shipping from Walmart.com with no order minimum ( excludes freight, and Marketplace items). So if you’re like me and you do that thing where you put items in your cart and then looking at the shipping charge then immediately change your mind about ordering, the free shipping is a huge benefit that will save you money while allowing you to still shop online for all the things that you need. Additionally, with only a $35 minimum, you can get what you need delivered right to you with the same everyday low prices that you love (some restrictions apply). As someone who gets down to the last diaper and often doesn’t feel like getting in the hot car and going to the store, this has been a huge benefit since I can hop on my phone or computer, put the order in for diapers, wipes, and other needs, and have it delivered to me as soon as the next day. Another little benefit is that you’ll also get benefits such as access to mobile scan & go for when you do shop in-store.
As we have been getting ready for the Summer, there has been quite a few items that I have been able to shop at Walmart and get delivered to me very quickly and at amazing prices. Since Carter is a completely different size than he was last year (let alone last season), as soon as the warm weather hit, I jumped on Walmart.com and used my Walmart+ membership to get him a new summer wardrobe including shorts, t-shirts, outfits sets, and even swim trunks. Because of the low prices, I even was able to shop for a few items for myself since I was under budget for what I had planned to spend on Carter’s clothes.
We even went and purchases a new pool set for Carter since he loves the water, and shopped for other outdoor necessities that Carter needs. Since we are heading on a short beach trip in the next week, getting all of his toddler beach essentials was super easy and we got them delivered to our door the next day which was super helpful because we need them and I waited until the last minute to even start looking for them.
Getting ready for the summer was made easy with the Walmart+ membership especially with this last-minute mom.
