I am a proud online shopper. Proud AND peaceful, if you must know. At the rate my family runs from one activity to the next and barrels through our favorite products, I’d be at the store every day stocking up on the items we ‘just ran out of’ (and I’d be just this side of crazy) if I didn’t have a better system.
Yes, like any family with active, growing children, it is a necessity for us to regularly replenish our stocks of fruits and vegetables, milk, cheese and protein, but it is the ‘other’ list – the non-perishable beauty and grooming items that we don’t always think about every day, but definitely miss when they are empty. I’m talking about shampoo and conditioner, body wash, deodorant, soap….
It is not uncommon for a member of my family to unwrap the last bar of soap and ‘forget’ to tell me….meaning the replenishments don’t always make it to the list.
This leads to stealing shampoo and conditioner from one shower to the next, complaints about the lack of body wash and soap and (gasp!) family members going without deodorant.
Fortunately, I can place these orders online through Walmart.com’s BeautyYourFamilyTrusts. It’s shopping made easy – with a few clicks, I can have our favorite hair care products (Pantene), soaps, deodorant and more sent right to the house. I can plan ahead so we don’t run out, I avoid the store, (yippee for skipping lines and shopping from the warmth of my office when it is 30 degrees outside!) and save money.
Here is a look at the items I recently ordered and had shipped to our home.
One of the greatest perks of shopping online like this is knowing my kids won’t run out of what they need (shampoo and deodorant!) and most definitely, that I will be ready for guests when they come to stay. I always prepare and leave a basket of brand new toiletry items in our guest room so anyone visiting feels right at home and doesn’t have to worry in case they forgot any of the products they need.
Having a fresh bar of soap when you are away from home is small comfort to offer. The beauty that my family trusts is also the beauty that we offer to the people we love.
