Happy Friday eve! The Friday before Christmas at that! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season and enjoying the cozy time at home. I feel like we are all nestled down for the long winters’ nap and I’m so thankful for this extra uneventful time with family. Even though there aren’t holiday parties this year – there’s still plenty of hot cocoa, Christmas movies, and holiday cheer. I had a fun idea for a “to me, from me” gift that I wanted to share…It’s the Walmart+ membership and it’s amazing! It’s like having a year-round helper elf for groceries, gas and everything in between.
With a Walmart+ membership you receive free delivery from your store (restrictions apply)! I never fully appreciated delivery until I became a mom. There are so many times when Mark is napping or fussy, and a trip to the store seems more like climbing Mount Everest than a grocery run! Enter: free delivery! I love that there’s only a $35 order minimum and someone brings the order right to my door! As members we also save on fuel prices (5 cents per gallon) which is so great! Walmart+ also has a mobile scan option that allows me to have a contact-free checkout – something that is extra appreciated during these unprecedented times. And it saves me time since I spend less time at the register! I just scan the item on my phone as I am walking through the store. Thank you, technology!
With a Walmart+ membership there’s also a new benefit: Walmart+ free shipping, no order minimum. That means I can order from walmart.com and get eligible items (excluding oversized/freight and Marketplace items) with free next-day or two-day delivery. Even if the order total is under $35 – the shipping fee is waived at checkout for Walmart+ members on walmart.com.
It honestly saves so much time and money and makes life easier! And who doesn’t need a little of that!? With my last Walmart order I ordered this $15 dress (because nothing fits anymore), this under $10 scarf, some holiday tin’s to store our holiday sugar cookies and all the ingredients to make Christmas bark! YUM! I’ll post the recipe here so y’all can make some too! It’s DIVINE 🙂
What you need:
2. one bag of pistachios, shelled
3. one bag of dried cranberries
4. one bag of sweetened coconut
5. fine sea salt
1. shell and chop the pistachios – I just ran them through the food processor for a few seconds
2. put wax paper on a cookie sheet
3. heat the chocolate according to package directions (about one minute in the microwave then stir and heat in 15 second intervals)
4. Pour dark chocolate on the wax paper and spread out
5. sprinkle on the salt, pistachios,coconut and cranberries, (in that order) then pop in the freezer for at least 3 hours
6. take out and break apart
7. to give away, line a small tin with wax paper and fill it up! ta-daaaaaa done.
I don’t have measurements because it really is all personal preference, and you can’t mess up, but from making multiple batches I would say that MORE is BETTER. More salt, more pistachio, more cranberries! I used half the bag of cranberries and half the bag of pistachios per batch.
