ONE OF THE HARDEST ASPECTS OF BEING A FEMALE ENTREPRENEUR IS MANAGING IT ALL--the house, the kids, the job, and all the details that go with each of those. Which can be a little more than overwhelming, am I right?
Sometimes, you need a little pick-me-up, a helping hand, a shortcut to give you a little extra time.
Lucky for you, I'm going to share my newest secret tool to managing the madness. This amazing tool is the Sam's Club App and Club Pick-Up.
Who hasn't skipped the trip to the store because you just didn't have the time?
And then Sunday night rolls around; you're making school lunches and realize that you're out of bread. You run to the store and grab bread--but just bread because you're in a hurry--so much to do. Or you're in the shower and you pump the shampoo to find that it's all gone? Or your child was yells from the bathroom that they ran out of toilet paper, and you can't find a spare roll--so you grab a wad of kleenex or some other (hopefully) flushable material you can find?
Been there. And all because I felt like I just couldn't manage to fit in a trip to the store.
But wait! There's a solution.
I am telling you, once I found out about this, it was a palm slap to the forehead moment--how did I not know about this?!? And why was I not using it?
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS /
- You have to be a Sam's Club Member. You can get a membership for less than $50 and get a $20 gift card PLUS $20 in instant savings coupons HERE. And even better, you can do it all online and pick up your card when you pick up your order.
- Use the Sam's Club app or go to Sam's Club.com to shop. You can get everything that's in your local store: produce, meat, candy, toothpaste, milk, toilet paper, etc... Literally, EVERYTHING! What's great about the app is that you can do this in the carpool line or while you're waiting for an appointment--anywhere!
- At check out, you select the day and time you want to pick up your items.
- Pay online, of course.
- Head to the local Sam's Club you chose, go to the guest services desk and let them know you're there for a Club Pick-Up order.
- THIS IS THE BEST PART! A cart full of all of your merchandise is rolled out to you, ready to go! You don't have to go anywhere else in the store, you don't have to wait in the check-out line and you don't have to get out your wallet!
Did I mention Club Pick-Up is free?!
So....would you rather start with your cart empty or full?
Once you roll out with your cart full of groceries and other household necessities, all you have to do is load it up and head back home--all restocked and ready to go!
This literally saved me at least an hour (45 minutes if I was running with the cart through the store). Who couldn't use an extra hour in their day?
As someone who often shops in bulk, this is an ideal solution for me to keep on top of my household needs (you can add items to your cart through the app at any time) and save myself the time and frustration or running through the store.
My time is better spent with my family, working on Belong or maybe even taking a little "me" time (mani/pedi anyone?).
Club Pick-Up is just the pick-me-up I need to help me feel like I have some semblance of control over my crazy days!
No more dry cereal mornings because you ran out of milk, no more ordering pizza because you don't have anything to make for dinner, and no more excuses for not making it to the store because the idea of pushing that cart through the crowded isles sounds like hell to you. You got this!
