Why I use Instacart
for my grocery delivery!
Save time, money and your sanity with Instacart!
We have all been there before, busy lifestyle, screaming kids, not enough time in the day or making the most of your vacation. Whatever your situation is one thing is certain...
GROCERY SHOPPING SUCKS!!
I absolutely hated taking my kids into the grocery store. My oldest always wanted everything and when I said no she would start whining and crying. This only let to me pointing out the meanest looking man in the store and say to her "see that man over there? He owns the store and the sign on the door when we came in said no crying kids or he'll tell us to leave". (Yeah, proud mom moment!).
My youngest as a baby she had acid reflux, so there she would be all snuggled in her car seat, then when my back was turned I hear 'splat' all over the floor and she projectile refluxed her whole bottle back up... NOT FUN!! So, yeah, taking the kids with me is not an option. I used to go grocery shopping at like 10 pm childfree.
Fast forward 10 years, I'm so incredibly busy somedays I don't think I will meet my deadlines or finish everything that needs to be done. Then the Family is all like "there's no food here" or "What's for dinner?" Like I have time for that on a busy day! In fact, why is it everyone grows t-rex arms when I mention other people are welcome to cooking dinner. I hear "I don't know where anything is." (they are all liars!...lol)
Then let's get into vacation mode! I sure as sugar DO NOT want to have to manage normal tasks when I'm vegging out relaxing. We rent a house in the outer banks with the whole damn fam and I don't want to spend time grocery shopping. We go sailing in Maine for 5 days, I want to get right to the boat, not spend another hour searching for food. And what about that trip to Disney! You can save so much money by ordering groceries and stocking up on waters, snacks, breakfast, and even alcohol... because let me tell you after a day in Disney, I will need a glass of wine or the whole bottle!
Insert grocery delivery has salvaged me from the deep dark depths of the maritime abyss.
What can be easier than ordering food, drinks and depending on where you live, alcohol! Thank goodness I can't order alcohol in my state, that would seriously be a problem for me...I'd have deliveries every day... LOL.
I know what some of you are thinking, most grocery stores these days have some sort of delivery or pickup service, so why would I want to use Instacart? There is a range of stores you can choose from and most do not have delivery service. Superclubs like Sams or Bj's use Instacart as well as CVS, Aldi's and even Petco (Ella our pooch even tried to order more treats! Just kidding, my dog can't do that).
What's even better if you are a coupon queen like me, they have coupon savings and lots of specials for free delivery! Even if you don't snag a coupon, delivery is $3.75 in my area.
I would highly recommend trying Instacart, at least just once and see if your life can run a little smoother in this highly chaotic world! Click Here to snag your coupon for your
