Walmart Grocery Pickup *Review*

Hi Guys!

I recently tried Walmart’s free grocery pickup service (i know, i’m totally late to the party) and i thought i would let you know my experience.

photo-1506617420156-8e4536971650

The first thing that really struck me was how easy it was to use. A few clicks and you have a “cart” full of groceries. I placed my order in the evening and the next morning i was able to pick it up. I never even had to get out of my car. I also love that it is a free service!

The prices were comparable to what they have in store. Which is different if you have used something like Albertson’s grocery delivery, whose prices are higher online than if you were to shop in their store.

I also really like that with using this service there is less of a chance that you will buy things you don’t need. So many times with shopping in store i add extra stuff in my cart that i really didn’t need, but because i was either hungry or had a child with me who wanted a certain product i end up buying more.

So to recap the pros – It’s easy, prices are the same in store & online, could potentially save money (not buying extra food or unhealthy food), and it’s also a free service!

A few things that i have noticed that i don’t like…

  • You can’t inspect things like eggs for example. In my order, one of my eggs were cracked.
  • Produce isn’t what i would pick out myself. I’m super picky with what apples to grab or bananas or avocados. In my order, some of my apples were bruised and my avocados were too green.
  • Sizes. I really didn’t pay much attention to sizes, so i ended up buying a little container of oats, when i thought it would be a regular size.
  • You can only pay with debit/credit cards. If you use like the cash envelop system, or if you just like paying cash for things, you can’t do that with this service.

Those are my thoughts/experiences with Walmart Grocery Pickup so far. I really like how fast and easy it is, so i will probably be using them again. I might just buy my produce at another store and pick it out myself.

Have you used Walmart Grocery Pickup yet? What was your experience like?

I love apple picking, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, drinking apple cider, all the things…

So i thought it would be fun to create a bucket list to keep track of them all.

DIY Coffee Cup

Hi Guys!

As you all probably know by now, especially if you follow me on social media, i love coffee.

Recently i discovered a new love of mine, DIY coffee cups. I started out by doing some with oil based sharpie markers, which turned out ok. But then i got a Cricut and oh my gosh how fun it is to create different designs on that thing. I’m now totally obsessed with using it to create DIY coffee cups.

Here’s a recent cup i did with my Cricut.

See what i mean? Isn’t that adorable?! It says “This Day is Powered by Coffee”.

Today i thought i would show you both ways (Sharpie and Cricut) to create fun DIY coffee cups. P.S. With the holidays coming up in a few short months, these would make great gifts for anyone (not just coffee drinkers)…

Method #1 – Made With Oil Based Sharpies

Supplies needed:

White Coffee Cup (you can get these for like $0.88 at Walmart)

Oil Based Sharpies

Step 1: Decorate cup with sharpie markers.

Step 2: Let it sit for a few hours. You could even leave it overnight

Step 3: Bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. *Tip: put the cup in the oven before turning oven on and leave it in the oven until the oven cools completely, to avoid cracks.*

Step 4: Hand wash and enjoy!

Method #2 – Made With Cricut

Supplies needed:

White Coffee Cup (you can get these for like $0.88 at Walmart)

Cricut (I have this one)

Vinyl (for this project i used Midnight)

Cricut cutting mat

Cricut Vinyl Transfer Tape

Free SVG file 

Step 1: Download the free SVG file, then open Cricut Design Space and upload the file to it.

Step 2: Once you have decided what size you want it, let your Cricut do all the cutting.

Step 3: Remove all the excess vinyl then transfer your design over to the transfer tape.

Step 4: Apply design to coffee cup with transfer tape. Then discard transfer tape.

Step 5: Enjoy!
