Where to Grocery Shop Online: Which Stores Have You Covered?
Why do I grocery shop online? Because I can. (And you can to.) I H-A-T-E dragging my brood of children to the grocery store. In fact, I'm pretty sure that it's one of
Dante's levels of hell.
I love my children and they are well-behaved, but let's be honest. There is only just so much they can handle. Aisle after aisle of colorful wants. Toys in the cereal aisle. Nice.
Caramel apples next to the apples. (Really? I'm trying here! Must you thwart my attempts at every angle?? Not even apples are sacred anymore.) It's more than their little drool-glands can resist. And the whine-fest begins.
Unfortunately, my kryptonite is whining children. It drains me of my self-control, and leaves me with two choices: order online or leave them at home.
The "leave at home" option works sometimes, when I can go at 8pm (when everything's been picked through) or 6am (when nothing's out yet). Or I can go on the weekend. (Oh joy!)
So several times a month, I do the Fam a favor and order my groceries online and wait like a giddy two-year-old on Christmas, for the big green truck to pull up.
I'm a stay-at-home mom. We aren't swimming in cash. However, delivery companies do their darndest to give me free delivery coupons, discounts, and other enticements to keep me shopping. I can
purchase off-brand. I can make special requests. I can watch my budget while I'm shopping.
I cannot tell you how much I love this service. Next to the epidural it's my favorite part of motherhood. And if you're a cooler natural-birth mama than me (hats off, by the way), consider it
as second only to your cup of kombucha. (which you can also, incidentally, order as you grocery shop online...)
So here are the services that will deliver in your area. Bon Appetite!
P.S. Most services will deliver up to a 45 minute driving radius around a central location. If you're not sure if you're "in", give them a call. The more calls they get, the more likely
they are to expand!
The only two online grocery stores that will deliver nationally are Amazon and MexGrocer.
