I admit, I’m a shopper. I love it! I’ll find any excuse to do it, but I do have those times where I really would rather do anything BUT shopping, and you know when that is, when we return from vacation. I HATE SHOPPING coming back from vacation, just don’t wanna do it, but I know I have to, I’ll put it off until we’re down to the last square of toilet paper, and the last piece of bread.
However, Walmart.com has come to my rescue and made shopping for my favorite P&G products just a little easier, for those days I just don’t want to get out and shop. In fact, Walmart has made it so much easier that they now have a Walmart Smart Phone App as well, so even if I’m oh, say just coming back from vacation, I can use the app before I even get home!
So, coming home from vacation, I decided to try it out. Hubby was driving, and I was in the passenger seat with my phone and Walmart App open, time to shop for some things I know we needed when we got back.
With the everyday low prices that Walmart offers, I was able to find my favorite P&G products on the app and able to order them. A few of the items I ordered were Charmin Ultra Strong Toilet Paper Mega Rolls, Bounty Paper Towels Giant Rolls and Swiffer Dry Sweeping Sweeper Cloths Refills.
Once I got all of the items I needed, it was time to check out. I then had the option of having the items shipped to my local Walmart for FREE with the Site to Store option, or I could choose to have them shipped directly to my home (Spend $50 or more and shipping to home is FREE).
There are also a variety of payment options available such as using a Walmart Gift Card, paying with cash, or using your credit card.
The Walmart App made it super easy and convenient to shop. I opted to pick up my items at my local Walmart, and even though I wasn’t in the mood, it was an easy pick up, no lines and no people to deal with except the cashier, and since it was already paid for, it was picked up and I was off!
One other thing about the Walmart App, is that if you are shopping in the store, you can use it to scan items while you shop, and it will keep track and keep you on budget (if you have one).
Want to try out the Walmart App yourself? Enter to win a $25 Walmart Gift Card below in the giveaway widget. Be sure to complete the mandatory entry for all of your entries to be valid.
The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by P&G. Please see my disclosure policy for more info.

Getting the kids outside can sometimes be a challenge, usually I make sure they get out though, no matter what. Whether it be riding their bikes or scooters, playing with their friends, or even just sitting outside reading, I make sure they get out!
Another thing I also make sure to get on them for, is making sure they’re hydrated when they’re outside. When I was asked to have my kids try out some Fruit Shoot drinks, I was happy to do it. I found a few bottles at Walmart and Family Dollar while we were out shopping.
My kids love water, but sometimes it can get boring, so finding a drink that will hydrate them, keep them happy and not be full of caffeine and sugar is important. Fruit Shoot contains real fruit juice, natural flavors, no high-fructose corn syrup, no added sugars and is clear liquid with no dyes! Fruit Shoot also comes with a no-spill cap, which is great for kids and traveling! Flavors come in Orange, Apple and Berry Burst, we were only able to find Orange and Berry Burst but can’t wait to try Apple!
With back to school on the way, Fruit Shoot is a great drink to pack with your lunches, I know the girls will be finding some in their lunch bags when they head back to school.
To have some fun, Fruit Shoot is hosting a “Have a Ball Stunt Hunt” competition, you simply submit a short video and could possibly be chosen to have special effects added to your video to make it look like a real Hollywood movie!
My kids and their friend decided to make a game out of the Fruit Shoot bottles, some water and a ball. Their game, to see who could shoot the ball the furthest using water, they had a blast!
Here’s how you can enter:
– Visit the contest homepage to upload a video (under 30 seconds) of your kids showing off their best tricks and stunts with a Fruit Shoot bottle and any ball in the video.
– Share your video with friends and family and encourage them to vote for your video.
Every week, they will chose a winning video, give it the full-on Hollywood special effects treatment, and release it on the contest homepage for the world to see.
If you do decide to enter, you will receive a free bottle of Fruit Shoot just for entering the contest. About to run out to get your kids some Fruit Shoot? If you buy 6 bottles you’ll get a mail in rebate (in-store) for a free Waboba ball!
Thank you to Fruit Shoot for sponsoring today’s post, but my love for their juice and endorsing children’s imaginations is all my own!. Please see my disclosure policy for more info.

Hubby works a lot of hours, a lot of early hours, a lot of late hours. He’s not much of a coffee or tea fan, only in a pinch.
