Cost Effective Living With Walmart

Happy September Folks. Are the days starting to feel shorter or has the pace of life just become so fast all of a sudden? I hope you all had a wonderful summer. I'm just in a little bit of shock as to how fast it went and how big my kids are getting.

I am in full school mode. Laila and Mikayl both started school a few weeks ago, and for the first time they are both in the same school building. Previously Mikayl got all his daytime meals at the preschool he was in. Now I'm making lunches and snacks for two. And as always I turn to Walmart when shopping for school lunches and snacks as I know I can always count on them for having the BEST grocery prices on everyday items that we need at home without compromising on quality. With rising inflation, I'm always looking for ways to stay within our monthly grocery budget. I do a beginning of the week trip and stock up on the chocolate chips buns they love for lunch, pick up some fruit, crackers, chips etc.

Making a "board style" after school snack is always a great idea. Gives your kids variety and who doesn't love a good snack board. I love grabbing some Walmart brand items for snack boards like this, because they taste JUST as good as a name brand would and I end up saving so much money.

Try making this smoothie at home for your kids for an after school snack or breakfast. I always make a little extra for myself since its so good.


  • 1/2 cup of Great Value frozen mixed berries

  • 1 tbsp of honey

  • 1 tbsp of peanut butter

  • 1 cup of oak milk or any other milk. I prefer dairy free

  • 1 tsp of flax seeds (optional)

Put everything in to a blender and blend until combined. Thin it out with more milk if you need.

One of the best advantages of shopping for groceries at Walmart is that if I don't have time to go into the store. I can do my groceries online and do a store pick up where they bring all your items to the car. You can also have your groceries delivered to your home - which is something I do so often given its convenience. I have a promo code if you wanted to check this out for yourself, new customers can use the code TRIPLE10 to save 10$ off their first 3 pickup or delivery orders, an order of 50$ min is required.

One of the best brands at Walmart is their Brand called "Equate". I'm linking some of my family's most used items here.

Wishing you all a wonderful September. Cooler temperatures are upon us very soon, and I for one can't wait to "Fall into Fall"and bring you some fun content. Until next time...

Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
