Want to know the best way to shop with a toddler?

Don’t do it!

Let Walmart do all the shopping for you. That’s my fabulous tip for the day. Why put yourself through the stress of shopping with a toddler when Walmart will do the shopping for you and all you have to do is park and your groceries are delivered right to your car. What’s not to love about that?!

Shopping with Easton is a nightmare. Not only is he two and a half but he’s also a mini Houdini when it comes to the cart seat belts. He can twist and turn right out of those things and when you set him free he takes off. I joke that Easton can’t be trusted out in public because he is our wild child. He must be contained at all times because he’s a fast one. And, the only way to keep him contained is to have him strapped in the stroller. Well, grocery shopping with a stroller is a little difficult considering I can’t push a stroller and a cart at the same time.


My husband tells people that Easton has one speed – fast. He doesn’t walk at all. All he does is run. So, you can see my issues with taking him grocery shopping. It’s easier not to even try it. I prefer to just order my groceries online and pick them up at Walmart without even having to take my speed demon out of his car seat. It makes life easier for myself and for everyone else shopping. It’s amazing the looks you get when your toddler is running wild through a grocery store.

Well, I don’t have to worry about that anymore! Because now I order my groceries online and use Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup Service.

Walmart also makes meal planning easy because I sit down to plan out weekly meals and create my shopping list all at the same time.  Walmart just knows exactly how to make life easier for everyone.  I can even add diapers and wipes to my list.  Gotta love that!!

And, since we’re talking about grocery shopping and meal planning, I wanted to share TWO Meal Planners that I use.  One is a monthly meal planner that helps me plan out our dinners for the month and then one is a weekly meal planner I use.  Both go right into my planner and make meal planning a breeze which also makes grocery shopping easier.

Did I mention how using Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup Service also saves us money?  No more splurges because I stick right to my list and I don’t buy items that I don’t need.  So, it saves me time and money!!  Woohoo!  That’s what I call winning.  I could really go on and on about how awesome Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup Service is but you should just try it out for yourself.  Make sure to use the promo code WOWFRESH for $10 off your first online order.
