How I buy in bulk 3 month worth of snacks for 4 kids in under 1 hour

Anyone who knows me knows that I hate grocery shopping?. My trips include going to the store, thinking to myself “Why don’t I ever create a list”(or forgetting said list), strolling through the aisles trying to Pinterest recipes as I go, wondering why don’t I end this cycle. I know you’re thinking “Girl just plan”.  Don’t know why, but it’s always been a struggle. Also, why is Walmart always redesigning? STOP MOVING THINGS ALREADY!! I digress.?  So needless to say when Amazon Prime debuted I was the among the first to sign up!

Since Amazon Prime, several companies have jumped on board by also offering fast shipping at affordable prices. Which is a win-win for me, because I get to save time and money!

As you have figured out by now, I’m not the mom that enjoys shopping. However, I am the mom that loves to save money so I can put it into things that I really want! So if I have to click this, move that, save this …as long as it’s all digital, then I’ll do it.

Instagram

I post pictures of my purchases on my Instagram account and post my referral code letting friends know they can get $15 towards their first purchase. I also make sure to utilize hashtags to reach a larger audience. Note* My IG account is public that’s the only way hashtags are beneficial.

I used to be quite embarrassed to admit, but I struggled with overdraft fees to the extreme in my early 20’s.? When my children???????? were little and my husband?? first left, I paid over $1000+ of overdraft/overdrawn account fees in one year. How? A few ways, bad money management, being naive, and a lack of funds. I felt stuck, but I knew I needed my bank account, it was sucking everything out of me at the same time.

Through the years I was able to get a better handle of my finances, but yet, I still cringed from time to time when a charge, that I forgot about, slipped through the cracks.

I finally had a handle of my money, so the smallest account fee was bothersome.
