I don't know about you, but I dread taking my little ones to the store on my own. For one, it's pretty difficult to navigate the store with a cart and a stroller when I only have 2 hands, and Sophie and Xander both HATE being forced to walk. So what do I do? I either shop when my husband can come along to push the cart while I push the double stroller, or I order my essentials online. Sadly, this doesn't work well for most grocery items or anything perishable; but online ordering makes tons of sense for our household essentials like laundry care or bathroom products.
I usually shop at Walmart for such essentials, since they offer everyday low prices and carry literally everything we could possibly need. Recently, I ordered a boatload of our favorite P&G products using my laptop on Walmart.com. You can have items shipped directly to your doorstep for FREE with your order of $50 or more, or you can choose the Site-to-Store option and pick up your items from your local Walmart at your convenience. The fact that I ordered at 2:00AM wearing my fuzzy Eeyore PJ pants? A total added bonus.
So what did I order? Glad you asked! First, I stocked-up on laundry essentials. With 2 preschoolers, a messy teen boy, and several pets, we wash a lot of clothing. And I do mean A LOT. There's nothing worse than going to do a load or 5 of laundry and realizing that your detergent and softener are empty. Walmart.com has some amazing deals on your favorite Tide and Downy products, including some great bundle packages. These save you tons of money and keep those clothes looking and smelling fresh.
I also ordered some bathroom essentials. Now I have to admit: I am a total toilet paper snob. I refuse to by the "cheap stuff", and generally ONLY buy Charmin Ultra Soft. This drives my husband nuts, but what can I say...I prefer to use the good stuff when wiping my nether regions. Other TP brands tend to leave behind little bits and pieces, and that's just gross. Plus, when we use Charmin, we tend to go through a lot less toilet paper since it's very absorbent. A little goes a long way!
I also ordered some Pantene Color Preserve Shine 2in1 Shampoo and Conditioner. Oh, I should probably mention I am a hair snob, too. I am extremely picky about the products I use, and when I find something I love, I don't share. Yep. I am a mean Mommy. Whatever. My family can deal and use their shampoo. This one is MINE. (Insert sinister giggle here.)
And of course since I do have a smelly teen and a husband, Febreze Air Effects was a must. You do NOT want to go anywhere near the bathroom after they're done unless they've sprayed it with this product. I love the original Gain scent, and since it's Febreze, there is a molecule that does more than mask bad odors, it traps and neutralizes them!
Online ordering was super simple, too. Once I had all of my items in my virtual shopping cart, I simply selected my shipping method and checked out. I chose the Ship to Home option, since my order was well over $50 and qualified for free shipping. All items can also be picked up from the store, free of charge, if you'd rather get them sooner.
My items arrived just a few days later and were very well-packaged. That's one thing I love about Walmart. They always make sure that their items are secured, and they include a lot of bubble-wrap to cushion each item. I shop online a lot, and I have never had an issue with orders from Walmart.com. And the fact that I can shop from the comfort of my own home, 24/7? Even better.
