Me: After work I have to go pick up my Wal-Mart order.
Coworker: You’re lazy.
Me: Nope, I am smart. I have more time to do things I really enjoy.
Coworker: (rolls eyes)
How often does this happen to you? Please tell me I am not the only one. Ok, fine in my co-worker’s defense she is not a minimalist and does not seem to stop to smell the roses. She comes from the Baby Boomer generation
that Wikipedia kindly describes as “this generation also has been criticized often for its increases in consumerism which others saw as excessive.”
For me, using the drive-up Wal-Mart grocery order option allows me extra time to do things that really spark joy for me (thanks Marie Kondo) and price compare without driving myself nuts by driving all over town. I order
simply what we need for the week. I avoid marketing gimmicks. Because of millennials (probably other generations too) we created jobs (think personal shopping and grocery delivery from the store to your car).
