And in your day to day life!
We have all been there before, busy lifestyle, screaming kids, not enough time in the day or trying to 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. Of course I HAD to point out the meanest looking man in the store and say "See that man over there? He owns the store and he said no crying kids or we have to leave". (Yeah, proud mom moment!).
My youngest as a baby had acid reflux, 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 onto the store floor... NOT FUN!!
Fast forward 10 years, some days, I'm so incredibly busy, I'm rushing around to meet deadlines or finish my to do list. All of a sudden I hear whining. "We never have food in the house" or "What's for dinner I'm hungry?" Like who has time for that? In fact, why is it everyone grows t-rex arms when I mention someone else cooking dinner? Their response? "I don't know where anything is." (my family 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 that 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 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 online! Just kidding my dog can't do that, thank god, because she probably would, she's such a treat whore!).
What's even better if you are a coupon queen like me, listed on the site are coupon savings automatically loaded 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!
