There are many things in this day and age that make our lives a little bit easier -- you know, Google Home, Alexa, Bluetooth, music streaming services and my newest love among modern amenities ... GROCERY PICKUP!

If you are like me, this is a big win for so many reasons:

1. I really don't like putting on makeup, so being able to not get ready but still feed the fam bam is awesome!

2. Shopping with little kids is by far one of my least favorite things to do, and not having to tote them around the store is AMAZING.

3. I found that I bought WAY less stuff. I only put in my cart what I needed, not what I wanted.

Aand finally, 4. It allows me to stick to my budget because the cart is always updating and showing me my total. So I can shop without stressing about the total at the end -- because I already know what it is!

So I tried this whole Walmart pick-up deal last Thursday, and it was crazy easy. So you download the app and build your grocery list, pick your pick-up day and time, and pay for it right on the app -- boom, bam and done. When you get there you pull into a stall and check in on the app, and the next thing you know you have a person at your door who will also LOAD YOUR GROCERIES into the car *Mind Blown.* Another thing I loved is that I was able to grab some beer and they checked my ID right at my car.

Will I be using a pickup service again? YES. Imagine shopping at a store like Target online and leaving the parking lot with exactly what you needed and only that!
