How You Can Save $68 Per Month on Grocery Deliveries with Walmart+

Image used with permission by copyright holder

Looking for ways to save time and money on groceries? Walmart’s new Walmart+ Membership has introduced a solution to the delivery dilemma. Over the course of the past 12 months or so, many families have made the transition to online grocery shopping. The shopper simply has to select the groceries they’d like to buy on a website, pay for them, pay a delivery fee, then kick back on their couch and wait for their groceries to arrive.

Over time, though, these delivery fees can start to add up, putting a small crunch on your monthly finances. With Walmart+ you can save $68 per month* with free delivery from your store. For a limited time, you can sign up for a free trial of

Walmart+

to experience the benefits for yourself. Considering the amount of weekly grocery shopping done by an average family, a Walmart+ membership will save you money vs. paying for individual delivery fees. It will also save you time, giving you more options about how you live your life.

How Much Money Can a Walmart+ Membership Save Me?

The business of delivering fresh groceries is fast-paced and manpower-intensive. That’s why many stores charge a delivery fee to get your groceries from the store to your door. Based on a fee of $7.95 for each of two deliveries per week, delivery expenses can add up quickly. This is especially true for larger families, who might need more than two grocery deliveries per week.

For just $2 per week**, however, a

Walmart+

membership provides you with free delivery from your store for groceries, shoes, clothes, pet food, and whatever else you need to keep your household moving forward.  Some simple math will show that it can save you $68 per month and can pay for itself in just two deliveries. Over a year, this typical monthly savings adds up to $816. Think of what you could do with an extra $68 per month or $816 per year — join a gym, enroll in a new streaming service, or grow your net worth by investing.

How Much Time Can a Walmart+ Membership Save Me?

The shopper in a typical family can visit a grocery store three times per week, on average. This can mean that you spend 2.5 hours per week in a store, vs. 2.5 hours living life at home doing the things you love. Luckily, a

Walmart+

membership can save you that 2.5 hours per week with free delivery from your local store. Simply by shopping online and having your groceries delivered directly to your door, you gain back valuable time in your schedule. Using the Walmart app is easy and you can order multiple times in case you forget something so you’ll always have your kitchen in stock.

What are the Benefits of Walmart+ Membership?

A Walmart+ membership includes numerous other benefits besides getting groceries and more delivered as soon as same-day for free, including:

  • Free shipping from Walmart.com, no order minimum required.
  • Member prices on fuel. Save 5¢ per gallon at most Walmart, Sam’s Club, and Murphy fuel stations.
  • Mobile scan & go – check out with your phone as you shop in-store.

What is a gruit, and where can you find one?
Gruit, the beer made without hops that you need to try
Beer snifter chalice glass

Most beers you know and love today have four primary ingredients: water, barley, hops, and yeast. That’s largely due to the centuries-old German beer purity law, or reinheitsgebot, which demanded that beer be made exclusively using these ingredients and set the standard for today’s brews. 
But beer is an ancient beverage — historians believe its story stretches back to 5th millennium BC in Iran and went on to be enjoyed by the likes of Egyptian pharaohs and the Greek philosophers. However, if Socrates or Tutankhamun ever enjoyed a pint in their days, the beer was likely missing one of those four critical ingredients: the hop.
In today’s hop-hungry climate of India pale ales (and hazy IPAs, New England IPAs, as well as milkshake IPAs, and others), it seems impossible that beer could exist without hops. The fact is that many other natural ingredients can serve as substitutes for the bittering, aromatic, and flavoring characteristics of hops. Today, if a beer relies on other herbs to fill the "hops" role, the beverage is classified as a gruit.

Gruit is the German word for herb. Instead of depending on hops, these brews use exotic additives like bog myrtle, horehound, elderflowers, and yarrow to offset the sweetness of the malts and create a more complex beverage.
Thanks to the creativity of modern breweries, you don’t have to travel back to the Middle Ages to find a gruit (though if you can, please let us in on your time travel technology). You can try them right now, but you will have to do some detective work.
“Authentic” gruits can be tough to find in the mainstream marketplace. That’s because some laws require hops to be present for a product to be sold as beer. Not having the “beer” title would limit distribution and sales channels for some breweries.  To illustrate how rare gruits are in the current marketplace, there are currently 32,576 American IPAs listed on the Beer Advocate database and only 380 gruits.
But don’t despair — this list will help you get started on the path toward discovering modern versions of the ancient ale. Start your gruit journey here:

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul’s competing recipes for National Michelada Day
Smokey, fruity, or spicy - there's a Michelada recipe for every taste
national michelada day modelo x dos hombres hero image 1

Today, July 12, is National Michelada Day, so that's the ideal excuse to kick back with this classic Mexican beer cocktail. Beer cocktails aren't the easiest thing to create as beer has such a low alcohol percentage and high amount of water compared to spirits -- but when you get it right, there are few things more refreshing. As the beloved combination of Mexican lager, lime, and tomato juice proves, there's a great way to mix almost any ingredient.

Another fun aspect of the Michelada is its flexibility. You can use clamato juice in place of the tomato juice, pour in an extra shot of spirit, and add whatever combination of hot sauces or umami sauces that your heart desires. As the drink is traditionally served in a glass with a salt rim, you can also add bonus flavors here like making a chili salt or using salt and pepper. And of course you can garnish with anything from fruit to pickles.
