Do You Use Walmart Pick-up or Delivery?
During this pandemic, the only positive I have found is Walmart pick-up. We are a small town and do not have the option of delivery. I am going to share with you my pros and cons of Walmart pickup that I have found.
- When shopping online with Walmart pick-up I am able to make sure I am not overspending on needless items.
- Normally walking up and down the aisles I find things that I “do not need” and end up overspending.
- I can sit in the comfort of my own home and order my groceries.
- My biggest positive is if I want to plan our meals for the week I can look up the ingredients that I need and order what I don’t have on hand. This is one of the biggest pros of doing pick-up to me.
- The people that bag, (although I appreciate them) do not always know how to correctly bag. (frozen items in with my fresh vegetables) etc. So more a slight inconvenience.
- Size of produce. Obviously, if I was at the store myself I would know what size onions I would want or cabbage. But I also know that they don’t know either so I make do.
