Southern Mom Loves: Stock Up and Avoid the Oops This Summer!

Stock Up and Avoid the Oops This Summer!

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Walmart. All opinions are my own.

An "oops" moment can happen at any time. No one likes that sinking feeling when you reach for something you really need, only to realize it’s all gone. It's laundry day, there are piles of clothes waiting for you, you go to start your first load and oops, you're out of detergent. It's shower time and oops, you're out of shampoo, and all of these little oops moments can become super-embarrassing if you've got guests this summer. The good news is that you can avoid the oops, and it's easier than ever.

My biggest oops moment happened last summer. Summer is always super-busy for us; In addition to all of the spring/summer holidays, most of our family's birthdays fall during summer. That's a lot of get-togethers.

You plan one, then have a week or two before the next one comes around. It's easy to forget to pick things up, like dish detergent, dinner, or toilet paper. The dishes can wait, and dinner can be delivered, but toilet paper is not something you want to run out of. Ever.

So it happened in one of the worst ways that it could have: With guests, one of them waiting for me to produce a roll, and not a single shred in any of the bathrooms. What did I do? I dug a tiny package of tissues out of my purse, jumped in the car, and went to the store. Smh.

Now I avoid the oops. I stock up the easy way and order everyday essentials online. They get delivered right to your home so you don't have to struggle with unwieldy packages and kids this summer.

And now you can head to to order everyday essentials too. 

They created this mini site through Walmart so you can shop for essentials by category like Kitchen, Laundry, Cleaning, Baby, and Bathroom to find everything you need at Walmart's low prices. 

The best part is that you can order ahead to pick it up at a store near you for free or get free shipping on orders over $50, so you don't even need to pay for shipping.

Extra brush heads, body wash, and toothpaste, check.

Dishwashing tabs, check. 

Toilet paper, check, check, check.

Save money and a shopping trip, check. Stock up on your essentials at and enjoy more of your summer!


What was your biggest "Oops!" moment? I love to read your comments!
