As a mom of five kids, one of whom is extremely hyperactive and always on-the-go, I can use one word to describe my life most of the time right now.
I wish it wasn’t this way. I really, truly, wish it wasn’t this way and life didn’t seem like such a challenge every. single. day. But it does. This is my reality.
Yes, I have good days, and I know that I’m extremely blessed to be able to be home with my kids all day long and homeschool them. But it’s still hard, because in the midst of the blessing there’s:
A child not wanting to sit down and eat breakfast
A child yelling, “Mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom…” when I’m home alone and trying to keep the baby asleep. (I was not successful.)
A brand new roll of toilet paper in the toilet
Hitting, scratching, bothering
All this just…today.
So, you can imagine, that when I had the opportunity to try out the Walgreens Web Pickup service, I jumped at the chance! I mean not having to leave the house with the kids to go shopping for household items, really? Instead, I get to sit home at my computer and browse through the items we need, be able to see the sale prices, Balance Rewards, whether it’s in stock or not at my local Walgreeens, literally shop from the comfort of my computer chair…well, that’s my kind of shopping!
And that’s just what I did.
First, I went to Walgreens.com and logged into my account. (Tip: If you’ve taken advantage of the free photo offers from Walgreens, like a free 8×10 or free photo collage, then you probably already have an account.)
Then I browsed for the items my family needed. My husband had a list of items for me to look for specifically, and so I started there. You can also use the Walgreens Mobile App, which is extremely handy and can do so many cool things (even edit photos!), to search through your local ad.
I also used the app to check my Balance Rewards (signing up is free).
I found some very nice deals on natural products like lotion, hand soap, and toilet paper. Since life has been hectic with all the moving we’ve done lately, I haven’t been able to make and replenish our own supply. It’s so nice to have store bought natural products when we need them — and at good deals! I also found good sale prices on everyday items like garbage bags and storage bags.
You can take a peek at the first picture in this post to see everything I put in my web pickup shopping cart.
Or you can see my entire shopping experience from start to finish in this Google+ story I created. There’s even a picture I snapped of the sign for curbside service (Hello! ) that Walgreens offers with Web Pickup. Curbside service.
After I was finished shopping, I went through the online checkout process (though you are not actually charged for the items until you pick them up in store — this way you can get your Balance Rewards AND bring any coupons you have to use on your order), then I headed to the store the next morning to pick up my order.
Finding the web pickup counter was easy because of the signage. My local Walgreens web pickup area is at the photo counter.
The checkout process was a breeze, and I was in and out of the store before I knew it. It was quick and easy, and I will definitely be using the Walgreens Web Pickup service again and again and again…to keep my family #HappyHealthy and to keep me a little more on the sane side.
Have you ever tried the Walgreens Web Pickup service? I’d love to hear your experience! If you haven’t tried it, do you think you’ll try it now that you know how easy it is? (I’m personally trying the curbside service feature next time. )
P.S. Now through March 1st, Walgreens is giving the Walgreens community the coupon code: WEBPICK to save $5 off an order of $20. I used this code for my order, because I *heart* coupons.
