Don’t have time to grocery shop?

We all lead busy lives, and one of the least favorite chores many busy families face could be the task of weekly grocery shopping. But, what if your fridge could always be well-stocked with foods that your family eats? And what if YOU didn’t have to do the shopping OR putting away of the groceries?

If this sounds appealing to you, Walmart is currently testing new concepts, such as delivering packages inside your home and even putting groceries away in your refrigerator

BUT, would you want a complete stranger walking inside your home and checking out your decor, family photos and even your dirty kitchen (gasp!) while you are at work monitoring them from your mobile device?

Here are a few thoughts from the Hip2Save team…

“I would not want a total stranger walking into my house, as convenient as it sounds!”

“Um, no thanks!”

“I might be convinced if they could do my laundry and put it away too? 🤔

Walmart is currently only running this test in Silicon Valley with a small group of customers who have opted-in to participate in testing this new concept. However, Walmart wants to be able to offer this service of delivering inside the house OR in the fridge OR in the garage to other areas in the future.

Would YOU be interested in this service?

    Walmart NO, AMAZON/ TARGET / WHOLE FOODS YES!!! Only if background checks of delivery people were texted to your mobile device prior to delivery or you were able to select the delivery person from profiles like an adoption agency lol πŸ˜‚ seriously though…. it’s no different than anyone who’s not family coming into your home…. as crazy as it sounds it would benefit many who are disabled! And those who have so much on their plate and that lessens the burden of one more thing you have to do πŸ™‚

    I agree ^^ Walmart employees are by far the most ignorant individuals I’ve ever come across. They can’t even do a simple task like scan coupons. I know at my local store I feel as if they follow you… super creepy. And they all look like they have been chewing on rocks or their thieves. In my opinion Walmart has went way down and who’s to say these certain individuals coming into your homes are completely trustworthy. All because they ran a background check on them, that means absolutely nothing. Some of the smartest crooks have peons who they pay to do their dirty work. Think about that when bring a complete stranger into yours or your parents home.

      Why not keep your comments to yourself? There are some good quality people that work for Walmart. Obviously you have never used professional cleaning services, nor would you given the degree of your trust issues. Typically people are thoroughly vetted before allowed to provide any kind of service in a customers home.
      I have used many similar services with no problem. I have never had to review my security cameras and my valuables are kept locked away. Personally I would use the service, but then again I’m not a negative Nancy.

    No πŸ™„

    Oh my goodness, NO. Four Words. Eye For An Eye. If you haven’t seen that movie, watch it. A word of caution, it is very, VERY disturbing. I don’t ever want someone I don’t know in my home, especially if I’m alone. It doesn’t matter where someone works or what they look like. There are good people and bad people in this world, and you can’t tell the difference by looking at them.

    Just a thought, background checks only alert you to those people who have been caught doing bad things. There are many bad people who have clean records, Heck there are lots of people with records that are good people. Did you know an 18 year old caught having sex with their 17 year old boy/girl friend can be charged with statutory rape and labeled a sexual predator for life…even if they are only a few months apart in age and were both consenting partys. On the other hand remember that one of the Duggar’s (18 and counting) kids was molesting not just his sisters but other girls too and somehow his parents kept it quiet for years. Point being background checks can only tell you so much. I’m not saying anything about any company’s employees, all companies have good and bad employees. I have two small children, nobody is allowed in my house if either my husband or I am not home. And I am very picky about who I will allow in my house at all. Most of services I use come from personal recommendations from someone I know. Yes I am paranoid, but when it comes to my children’s safety I don’t take chances. I don’t want strangers knowing the layout of our house and which bedrooms are my kids. I’m not worried about my stuff, stuff can be replaced, a child’s innocence can’t. So no, I don’t want some random person stocking my fridge, plus I’m picky about how my fridge is organized. Yeah I am a real type A person with OCD and a bit of paranoia… But if I was childless, had a high paying job with exceptionally long hours, and wasn’t crazy I might consider it. It would still be cheaper and easier than take out three meals a day.

    My house is such a mess I wouldn’t want ANYONE to see it!

    Only way this makes sense is if it’s a robot doing it. Having a human do this is old fashioned thinking.

    Most new concepts are met with a BIG no when people first hear about them, but in time this will become an acceptable and common thing. Think about all the people you allow into you home already while you are not home. The dog walker, the cleaning lady, etc. Amazon has a product that involves a camera you install to view when packages are delivered into your house instead of the package being left on your doorstep. This product even allows you to remotely unlock your door to let the person in. It won’t just be grocery, but all home services. Convience will always need to be weighted against safety, but we now are trusting our lives in drive less cars. I am on board. It take me an hour to shop and put groceries away. I will gladly pay someone to do this for me, and putting it in my fridge for me is even better! Amazon prime delievers for free in my area and I can have groceries in as little as two hours at my doorstep for FREE. LOVE IT~
