Who’s interested in saving time and money? I know I’m always looking for a way to save, and today I’m sharing 5 ways to save on your fall foliage road trip including snacks, motor oil and more. Plus, you can enter for a chance to win a trip to see Guns N’ Roses in Los Angeles!
We take an annual road trip through New England, or at least through New Hampshire and the eastern boarder of Vermont. When the leaves change in September and October, the mountains become rolling hills of brilliant red, yellow and orange. It’s always a fun road trip with a lot of scenery! Do you hop in the car for a fall road trip?
Today we’re talking about bulk purchasing, skipping the long lines at the store and ways to save time and money in preparation for your fall foliage road trip.
From paper towels to motor oil, we’ve got you covered. The best part? You can order everything from the comfort of your home. Heck, I was literally standing in my driveway and ordered everything from my phone, including the oil needed for my DIY oil change.
Walmart has made improvements to their online shopping experience. Just hop over to Walmart.com, place your order and choose one of three methods to get your items; ship to home, pick up in-store or even curb-side pickup!
Here are the 5 things we’re ordering online for our road trip this year…
Everyone loves road trip snacks. Salty, sweet and everything in between. We love bagging up pretzels, crackers and popcorn in individual baggies for easy travel and easy storage. A zipper bag is perfect for storing snacks because you can easily reclose the bag and keep your snacks fresh.
Order a case of water to keep hydrated while you’re travelling up, down and through the mountain passes! Water is always our go-to drink while we’re on road trips. Plus, you can order a case online and have it ready for curb-side assistance or in-store pickup at your local Walmart! With curb-side assistance, you just provide your name and the time you’ll be there to pick up your order, and a Walmart employee will bring your items to you!
BONUS! Free Fall Water Bottle Printable
As you all know, I’m a DIY kind of guy and it’s no different with my oil changes. Sure, I do love the convenience of swinging into a Walmart ACC and having my oil change done for me, but when I have the time I like to do it myself.
DIY oil changes are easier with Walmart.com.
Simply order your supplies and pick them up in-store, grab them with the curb side service or have it all shipped to your home! Today we chose in-store pickup — skipping the checkout lines and going straight for the pickup counter. As you can see, no lines – in and out!
We get the Pennzoil Platinum® Full Synthetic with PurePlus® Technology for our car. This oil is a pure, clear base with high performance additives that helps protect your engine without compromise, and helps to clean out sludge left behind by lesser oils. Designed for complete protection, Pennzoil will allow you to drive an extra of 550 miles per year vs. a dirty engine.

This is something you don’t want to forget, so add them to your shopping cart! Paper towels are always high on our road trip priority list. Clean up messes, wipes faces, and even right down to the emergency roadside weewee (haha). Paper towels are a must-have on your road trip shopping list!
Don’t forget your paper map. Seriously, on the back roads of New Hampshire, you’re bound to find yourself in a place where you have no phone service and no gps, so bring a map.
Last but not least, freshen up your first-aid kit! We all know bumps and bruises happen everywhere, even on the road. So while you’re shopping on Walmart.com add a big package of bandages, instant ice packs and anything else your first-aid kit is running low on. Walmart.com is a one stop shop for many of your day to day needs.
My Secret Stash…
Oh, and let’s do a number 6 road trip packing must-have. Our secret stash of Walmart plastic bags. These will help keep your car clean of garbage and recyclables! You can see our stash tucked into the side panel of the car on on the right side next to the roll paper towels…
