Life got a little easier!

I am a mom with 4 kids, and finding any life hack, or any way possible to make my life just a little easier I will do it!

Going shopping has always been a hot mess for me. Making a list of things that I need, loosing the list or forgetting it at home. People in the store makes me crazy and stressed out or even if you are low are money and you go up and have to put things back. Hey I will admit I have been there! It is embarrassing!

I enjoy shopping online, Amazon, kijiji, varage sale anything possible that I don’t have to endure the stress of going to the store. Plus taking 4 kids into a store when my husband is not home just makes the stress 10 times worse because we all know kids want EVERYTHING. Hey so do I! but it can get out of hand when you say “Sorry not today” then freak out. Everyone gives you dirty looks, one person says “I would never have 4 kids” and it’s just all around horrible experience. Also having a child with ADHD and autism who doesn’t understand that “not today” doesn’t mean no it means just not right now.

One day we were in Walmart my son asked for a toy, I said “not today” and melt down, I was standing in the check out, line behind me, he decided to bolt. Now here I am trying to get him back 3 other kids line behind me everyones looking at me like I have 2 heads.

So I found a way to make my life just a little easier, grocery shopping online and let me tell you, this was a life saver ! Not only did it stop the stress, it helped me save money. WITH Walmart!

Through out the week when I run out of something that I don’t need right then and there I will add it to the list as I go and it saves it to your grocery cart. Instead of making a list that I always loose or forget I am at home making the list in my cart. I check what I need in the comfort of my home and order!

You pick a time slot whatever is convenient to you, plus it says the amount right there! no stress and worrying that will I have enough if you are on a budget! No forgetting something while you are there because you can see whats in your house while adding! If you make meal plans its easy to make it right on there by adding the to the cart what you want for the week! They will pick out all your groceries for you, email you telling you that its all picked out and when they don’t have something that you put in your cart they do their best to substitute it for something similar and the same price!

You drive up to the stops, and call the number, you tell them your name and you’re here for grocery pick up and they bring it right out to you! This is a big help when I have all 4 kids in the jeep and can’t go in.

Also guess what!!! ITS FREE! You pay for the amount of your groceries but the cost of the pick up is free!! Like shut the front door!!

Parenting is hard, life is hard really… anyway possible to make life easier.. DO IT!

Hot Mess In Walmart

Yep you read that right…

We have all seen those You tube videos “People in Walmart” With the lady that is wearing pants that match her skin tone so it looks like she’s not wearing any pants, or that man that is dressed up as Indiana Jones but its not even close to halloween.

Well I am pretty sure I will be on the next one… Not because I was wearing some crazy outfit but because I mom’d that shit right up.
In my defence I was not aware that I looked like that Thanks husband for not telling me I looked like a hot mess mom.

We were fixing up a trailer that my husband wanted to use for work. Great no problem I will help you spray paint it. As we were doing it realized we did not have enough spray paint so I went to the store up the road it wasn’t really busy so I didn’t really notice I was going to get in and out… Then my husband told me that he took at the ones they had and they wouldn’t get a shipment out there for like 2 weeks… great now I have to run to Walmart.

Here I go off to Walmart still unaware that I look terrible. Well as I was walking down the aisles I was getting weird looks, and normally I wouldn’t take account of these looks because people are nosey by nature. Well that is when I noticed… My son… My beautiful baby boy decided he was going to wipe his face on my shirt… Peanut butter smear. Hey I thought he was giving me a hug.

No only was my shirt used as a napkin I had black spray paint on my face my hair was outrageous looks like I stuck my finger into something electrical. “Don’t you check yourself out in the mirror of the car before you get out” Well normally I do… but for some reason which from now on I will I did not…
Needless to say I got the black paint and the trailer looks great, and I might never use that Walmart again!… okay who are we kidding I love Walmart Ill be back.. but next time, I will check myself!
