Travel Hack Made My Vacation So Much Better!

One of the things that stresses me out more than anything is vacation planning! So, my husband takes the reins and plans all of our vacations – right down to the itinerary. He does leave me in charge of ONE THING… food planning. It makes sense – I love to cook and do so at home almost every night.

But, I really hate going into a new grocery store and attempting to find everything I need. Things get left off, even if I take a list. It’s a nightmare and takes hours. So, this summer I did things a little different.

I started a couple weeks out and made a food plan. I decided what I was going to make or have on hand for each meal and made a quick schedule. Then I listed out all the ingredients. The below video is a LIFESAVER to help organize my grocery needs.

I added in necessities, snacks, drinks, and put it all on my list. Then, I found the Walmart that was closest to our condo that offered free grocery pick-up and added all the items I wanted. And, I continued adding items right up until a couple days before my vacation via the app. I scheduled my pick-up for the evening of our arrival. I popped in, got my groceries, and left in about 10 minutes.

It was SO easy and they load the groceries for you. And, now, Walmart isn’t the only place offering grocery pick-up and delivery. I just figured they’d be cheaper and offer more than just groceries.

It really made my vacation meal planning go so much easier. And, it’s also offered at various grocery stores around the tri-state. Here’s a link to get $10 off your first order at Walmart if you haven’t tried it yet.
