I hate grocery shopping, so I’ve been on the hunt for services that make the process less of an annoyance If you want fresh food without having to deal with lines or committing so much time, you should be using Walmart Grocery. You can buy your food online or in the Walmart app and then pick it up from your local Walmart store. Plus, they’ll load your car for you.

Every week, I subconsciously start a new internal countdown. One day until I run out of pasta, two or three if I really skimp on my cereal before I absolutely have to stop and buy milk.

Maybe it’s the packed, too-small grocery stores nearby me or the mindless, (and yet) compulsory activity, but I hate grocery shopping. And I definitely hate heading there knowing I’ll just be lugging all the items that I buy 12 blocks back to my apartment.

Considering that there are entire services dedicated to making this process easier, I can’t be the only one who hates the chore of grocery shopping.

Enter Walmart.

The chain has recently undergone a bit of a facelift to remain competitive with an increasingly digitized commercial landscape. What that means for the average shopper is more options and better deals. In terms of food shopping, it means Walmart Grocery, which allows you to order groceries online and pick them up in-store at your own convenience.

Simply go online or use the app to create an account, order fresh groceries, and reserve a time to grab them from your local Walmart. They’ll even load your car for you.

You can select same day pick-up or schedule your order up to a week in advance. The only requirement is that you have to hit a $30 minimum.

To place an order, enter your zip code so it can find your local stores, choose which one you want to pick your groceries up from, and pick your items. An unexpected bonus is that using the site makes it easier to price compare, take advantage of weekly coupons, and shop food by departments rather than walking aisles or waiting in line at the deli. Walmart even creates a "Best Sellers in Your Area" section, where you can select popular local choices. Once you’re done, you can pre-pay online and reserve your pick-up time.

Use the app or go online to order fresh groceries, choose a time slot for same-day pickup, and then drive to your local Walmart. They’ll even load your car for you.

Once you’ve used the service, your account remembers things you’ve already bought and lets you keep a "reorder list" for quick, easy refill of your everyday essentials.

Whether you’re looking for ways to avoid the sugared cereal and toy aisle fights with your kids while shopping or just want to take back more of your Sunday afternoons, Walmart is making that easier than ever with this online order and in-store pickup. You can still get fresh food, and you don’t have to wander around any aisles bored and trying to find the peanut butter. You can shop from your own past grocery list, and you can reorder your favorites with one touch. Instead of a couple hours, grocery shopping can take 15 minutes.
