“We are out of toilet paper again.”
Even though “out of toilet” paper actually means my husband just restocked the bathrooms, and we had about a week’s worth left, I felt the panic rise. I was leaving in the morning for the first of two trips of the next two weeks, plus school was starting, plus orientations, plus everything else — and now I needed to stop to get toilet paper.
Great. ‘Cause I have time for that.
Then I did something I have never done before. I hoped on Walmart.com, looked up Charmin discovered that the 18 count of mega rolls was $17.97, which put it in my target price range and I put it in my cart.
Within five minutes, I had a cart full of our favorite P&G products ready to be shipped to my home for free.
I buy everything else online (including Pampers for the last six years), but I have never purchased big household items online. (Silly, right?!) And frankly, buying household necessities online is genius. I saved a trip, I don’t have to lug the giant package home, and I was still able to meet my goal prices — shipped to my door.
And one more side benefit, by shopping for specific products I need online I avoid the temptation of buying extra items that I don’t need while in the store. (Because you know that happens!)
If you don’t have $50 worth of products you need to buy, you can also use the ship to store option. It isn’t available for all products, but when it is you can save time by just running in to pick up the item you paid for online. Or you can even pay for them in cash — either way you can just go to the counter to collect your items instead of running all over the store.
I can go shopping for necessities while sitting with my daughters at dance class!
I don’t know about you, but I am thrilled with the time and hassle I saved. No more running out to the store because we need more toilet paper — I am having my TP delivered!
One lucky winner will receive a $25 Walmart gift card so you can buy household P&G necessities via Walmart.com or via the Walmart App.
