Baking for Fall with Walmart Home

Baking with Beckam! And by baking I mean making a BIG mess + a few small cookies. ha! Totally worth it for an afternoon of memories though!

 

It’s finally Fall & that means it’s time to start baking all of my favorite Fall treats & hosting family get togethers. Whether for game days or holidays, there are going to be many meals cooked here over the next few months! After losing a few kitchen items in our cross-country move, I knew I needed a quick restock of some kitchen items. & With the love I have for shopping all things Walmart, they were my first stop. And they definitely did not disappoint! I’m absolutely thrilled with the Walmart home finds AND the prices!

As much as I have come to love Walmart fashion over the last few years, the Walmart HOME section has blown me away even more! Everything from home decor to kitchen appliances to bakeware… they have the BEST options. You might remember that over the Summer I decorated our guest bedroom and every. single. thing. is from Walmart! You can see how it turned out HERE. & Now my kitchen is slowly becoming a Walmart home showroom too ๐Ÿ˜‰ ha!

FAVORITE WALMART HOME FINDS

  1. 3 piece mixing bowl set: They have this pretty white marble look [+ more options!] and they come with lids! I also love that they are plastic… AKA not breakable- a must with kids. The entire set is under $15!
  2. Farm apple pumpkin candle: I LOVE these candles and the new Fall scents are amazing! They are huge, under $12 and smell so good. My entire house smells like Fall with this candle and it makes me so happy!
  3. Set of kitchen hand towels: Such a great mix of black & white prints! Get all 5 for under $15!
  4. Wood rolling pin: Can you believe I’ve been married for 11 years & have NEVER owned one of these!? Ha! I’ve used canned goods to roll things out far too often. So when I saw this for under $10, I couldn’t NOT get it!
  5. Black & white dot 12 piece dinnerware set: MY #1 FAVORITE!! These are even better in person! I love the print, the gold detail around the sides and the price! Get all 12 pieces [4 full place settings] for less than $50.

 

Have YOU decorated for Fall!?

Since it’s finally Fall [whether the weather is acting like it or not!], it’s time to decorate for the new season! Walmart has all the best [& super affordable!] decor for your home. I have + love this wreath under $20, this cute Fall sign & this pumpkin stack. Browse through all of the Fall home decor HERE.

One of the best parts of heading into this time of year is more time spent with family & friends! I feel like we hang out with friends to watch football games, host or go to our families for holidays, and take dishes for potlucks to work/school. All of this means you need good & reliable bakeware. Most of what I had was still from our wedding registry in 2010. It was time for a small upgrade! This glassware set has 7 pieces and is less than $15! Such a steal for the set! & I also love this copper bakeware set with 2 cookie sheets, 2 pie pans & 2 muffin tins. It’s super affordable and looks great too.

 

Beckam & I had so much fun baking cookies & I know he will definitely be asking to do it again soon! If only I could somehow get him to clean the dishes, I’d totally be up for this every day ๐Ÿ˜‰ ha!

After School Snack Prep with Walmart+

 

Beckam started Kindergarten a few weeks ago & so far EVERYday, when he climbs in the car after school, his first question is ‘What’s my snack today?’ ha! I mean… I love a good snack too so I can’t blame him ๐Ÿ˜‰ We usually rotate between goldfish, popsicles, apples & avocados most frequently. BUT! He just put in a special request for a ‘snack board!’ We haven’t had one of these in a while & it’s basically a kid-friendly charcuterie board so DUH! I am here for it!!

 

I immediately hopped onto my Walmart+ membership account to place my delivery order! Since these are things I order often, they were already saved to my favorites. I added all the fruits, veggies, crackers & cheese to my cart and checked out in less than 5 minutes. The next morning everything was delivered [for FREE!] right to our door… Which means, I didn’t have to drag the girls out, #WIN! Breckyn & I got to work cleaning and prepping all the goods. I think it goes without saying we did our fair share of snacking while putting together the snack board. Whoops. lol

 

 

I am certainly NO charcuterie expert. Nothing fancy over here! I am pretty sure Breckyn was eating things faster than I could lay them all out! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But we finally got it all pieced together! I LOVE doing ‘snack boards’ because it’s basically just a fancier way to get my kids to eat a whole bunch of healthy stuff! Plus, I love snacking on all of these goodies too!

 

 

Walmart+ Membership Details

With our Walmart+ membership I was able to get all of these fresh, high quality ingredients right to the door, super easily, with FREE delivery! [on orders over $35, some restrictions apply!] I’ve talked before about all the amazing ways Walmart+ has come in clutch for us as a busy family of 5. Between packing lunches, after school snacks, and soccer practice treats, being able to have what I need delivered to my door has saved SO much time. & One of my favorite features… there are NO mark-ups! You pay the same low, in-store prices. We are big fans of Walmart+!

Check out the FREE 15 day trial of Walmart+ HERE.

 

& Since I clearly didn’t use all of the fresh fruits & veggies, I stored them away in THESE food containers. I’ve had a set of them for about a year & finally decided to order more. So I actually added them to my Walmart+ grocery delivery and they came with the food. ha! Talk about convenience! Since the kids love these snacks so much, this food won’t last long but at least it’s all cleaned & ready to eat over the next few days!

 

 

Oh & P.S… Beckam LOVED this when I picked him up and brought him home. I didn’t even have a chance to snap a pick before these kiddos scarfed down the entire tray!

Walmart+ : The New Membership Your Family Needs!

Welcome to my circus & say hello to my 3 monkeys ๐Ÿ˜‰

A brief scroll of these pictures & you will quickly understand my love of Walmart+! If you’re unfamiliar, Walmart+ is a membership program that offers FREE same day grocery delivery on orders $35+ to your front door! [restrictions apply!] Gone are the days of loading up the kids & dragging them through the grocery aisles. I can now order ALL the groceries I need from the Walmart app in about 5 minutes & schedule them to be delivered to my door. I cannot stress enough what a time saver this has been!

 

Keep reading for a few ways Walmart+ has been a game-changer for us!

 

As a busy, working mom of 3 with a Marine husband that is gone a LOT, Walmart+ has become a membership I’m not sure how I lived without.

3 favorite benefits of my Walmart+ Membership:

1. No price mark ups! You pay the exact same price that you would get in store! No hidden fees!

2. Same fresh, high quality groceries you expect! After receiving many deliveries I have personally had nothing but fresh produce, healthy ingredients, etc!

3. So quick & easy! I have the things I order most often in my ‘favorites’ list on the Walmart app so it takes just a few minutes to buzz through & add to cart.

 

At first I wasn’t sure how much a Walmart+ membership would come in handy for me. But after having the membership for a few weeks I wanted to share 5 instances when it has come in clutch!

 

1. A few weeks ago I planned to grill hamburgers for dinner. I got everything prepped in the morning. Then, during nap time, my ‘sweet’ [ha!] German Shepherd decided the hamburger buns would make a great snack. But instead of having to load up all 3 kids & go to the store just for buns I was able to quickly order and have them delivered. Along with some ice cream too ๐Ÿ˜‰

2. Now that we are only a few hours from our family we have guests visit so much more often! I LOVE that my kids get to see their grandparents/aunts & uncles/cousins more regularly. But I am sometimes in a time pinch prepping for visitors! So the last few times our family has been on the way, I can have groceries delivered while I am cleaning up the house! It’s basically like killing two birds with one stone!

3. Since we ARE so close to our family now, we make frequent roadtrips to visit them too! But the best way to make a 3 hour roadtrip go smoothly with 3 little kids? SNACKS. SNACKS. & More SNACKS. ha! So last weekend before we made the trip, I simply ordered the kids favorite things + a few extra baby things I needed. I was able to get those delivered while I was packing everyone up!

4. We unfortunately had a round of sickness pass through the kids recently. It was one of the situations where you do NOT want the kids in your car. ha! And of course Jake was gone for all of this ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I was able to have things delivered to the house so I didn’t have to risk getting sick kids in the car.

5. Probably the most surprising way Walmart+ has come in handy was for a date night outfit! A few weekends ago Jake & I were able to escape for a quick date night. It was the first one in a LONG time and I was so excited! Y’all know my love for all things Walmart fashion so of course I wanted to grab something new to wear. So I actually had this dress delivered about an hour before we left! And, side note, with Walmart+ you actually get free shipping from Walmart.com with NO ORDER MINIMUM! [excludes freight/Marketplace items]

 

These are just a few specific ways that Walmart+ has been a lifesaver for me! Of course anytime I can save time and NOT have to load the kids in the car & drive 15 minutes to the store, is always an appreciated WIN!

 

Evidence #1 of Beckam not being thrilled I told him we needed to take pictures BEFORE opening the Oreos LOL

With back to school just around the corner, I know life is about to get even busier! Since I now have the Walmart+ membership I know it will come in handy when I run out of snacks for Beckam’s lunch, need last minute school supplies or have to grab something last minute for the spirit week dress up days!

So if you’re like me & a little skeptical of how handy Walmart+ might be for your family, give their 15 day FREE trial a whirl. This is the best way to test out how much it works for you! Although I can almost promise you at the end of the 15 days, you will be happily signing up for a Walmart+ membership and only regretting it took you this long to try it LOLย  At least that’s how it was for me!

 

Also- this is very much real life. Peep the TV remote Beckam ‘hid’ under the bar stools haha

& Evidence #2. I’ll let you guess who is still mad they can’t have Oreos yet. haha
