WILW: Real Plans and Kroger Pickup

Today I’m sharing one of my very favorite secrets to grocery shopping!

Because both of these websites are better seen than explained, I went ahead and did something unusual for me—I recorded a screen capture showing you how I used Real Plans and Kroger Pickup (formerly Clicklist) to simplify my grocery shopping. (Especially when trying to eat healthier or doing Whole30!)

Amanda shares how she uses Real Plans for meal planning and Kroger Clicklist to place grocery orders online.

I love Real Plans because I am fairly new to cooking. When I say that, I mean I literally made grilled cheese sandwiches for our first Thanksgiving as a married couple, because that was the only thing I knew how to make at the time. (I cried about it.) I’m the kind of person who needs recipes, but doesn’t have the time or desire to look up new recipes online. I am also a huge fan of the shopping list it creates for you, and I use that list to order my groceries from Kroger. Both of these capabilities save me a lot of time.

I also love ordering my groceries online. Here’s why:

  1. I have a tiny person who currently refuses to sit in the cart and thinks it’s a lot of fun to run into the next aisle where I can’t see him.

  2. I am the kind of person who always wants to grab a pint of ice cream when I see it. (If I order groceries online, I don’t see the ice cream, and if I don’t see it, I don’t buy it, and if I don’t buy it, it’s not in my house, and that’s generally the best way for me to eat a less sugary diet.)

  3. We’re on a budget, and I prefer viewing items in my digital cart (and removing things if necessary) rather than getting to the checkout and being surprised at the total.

I hope this video helps. Doing video and voice recordings isn’t something in my comfort zone, but for this post, it seemed the most helpful.
