Our recent move an hour across town has rocked my world in a multitude of ways. I had gotten into such a comfort zone in our old hometown that simple things like where to buy groceries and our favorite hole in the wall Tex Mex restaurant were a given. We were on auto pilot for just about everything! I rarely even ventured out of my little 3 square mile radius.
After thirteen years in our old home, to say I’m having an out of body experience is an understatement! Everything is new and different but that’s also given me the opportunity to try some things that I wouldn’t have pre-move. Like new ways of getting our groceries. Now that we live more in the country it’s not as easy to just pop into the store every day to get what I need. Grocery shopping is planned out a few days in advance and I’ve been taking advantage of delivery services. I even signed up for a yearly subscription to Walmart’s online delivery a few weeks ago.
My new Friday afternoon ritual is to sit down with my shopping list and order our groceries to have them delivered in time for the weekend. I’m saving so much more time this way…and dare I say, money? It’s true! I frequently shop the Great Value store brand at Walmart and find that the products are equivalent or better quality to the name brands plus I always save money. I even did a comparison lately of what I used to buy at Kroger to see what my savings would be on the same items that I now get at Walmart. On almost every item from Kroger, I saved on the same item from Walmart.
Here were my basket totals from each store for the exact same items.
Walmart = $54.42
Kroger = $69.64
Total Savings = $15.22
A few of my weekly purchases were in each and here’s how these items compared.
Halo Top Dairy Free Peanut Butter Cup – Walmart $3.88, Kroger $4.49
Gardein Breakfast Bowl – Walmart $3.97, Kroger $4.99
Lucky Charms Family Size Cereal – Walmart $3.64, Kroger $4.59
Alexia Sweet Potato Fries – Walmart $2.88, Kroger $2.99
Unsweetened Almond Milk – Walmart $1.82, Kroger $2.00
Wonder Bread – Walmart $1.98, Kroger $2.99
Here is an exact comparison of my two shopping carts from Walmart and Kroger.
It’s safe to say that I’m a Walmart online delivery shopper for life! Not to mention the absolute convenience of never having to step foot into the store. The door bell rings and my groceries are on the front porch waiting to be unpacked and put away. I’m one happy camper!
