The Luxury of Grocery Delivery

Lately, getting to the grocery store has become a real hassle. I used to enjoy grocery shopping while my older kids were in preschool. But now that I have three babies at home, I can't seem to find enough alone time to get my grocery shopping done every week. And when I do have some time, grocery shopping is the last thing I want to do.

That was, until a few weeks ago, when I started getting my groceries delivered. For a delivery fee of less than $7, I shop for my groceries online and they are delivered directly to my kitchen the very next day. (I've also often found coupon codes that allow me to skip the delivery fee.)

In addition to the obvious benefits of using a grocery delivery service (saving me a trip to the grocery store), I've also found:

  • We spend less and waste less food, since I shop from a list at home and don't make impulse purchases like a do at the grocery store
  • It is easier to shop the sale items, because the service allows you to browse the list of specials online, rather than mapping out a grocery trip based on a weekly circular or looking for deals as you go
  • Because I use the delivery service's app on my iPad that is right in the kitchen, I simply add to my cart throughout the week as I run out of items or think of something I need
  • I am able to develop customized lists of items I always want to keep on hand, so shopping from these lists helps me keep a well-stocked kitchen

So grocery delivery has definitely made my life easier. I highly recommend it for anyone who finds it difficult to fit in weekly trips to the grocery store. It's also an easy way to stock up on food and supplies for a party or holiday meal.
