Grocery store, shopping

I did something I swore I’d never do.

UGH.

The busy season got the best of me. I swore I would never do it. It’s just not my style. I know others enjoy doing it, but I’m a little bit of a nerd. A grocery store nerd.

I ordered groceries online.

I know.

As I took stock of the weekend today, I realized that going to grocery store was going to cut into the little bit of time I wanted to set aside to start holiday shopping. I could go and bring the Little Mister with me, but I’m much more efficient in the store when I’m alone. I zoom around the aisles, hand select my groceries, and lay them out in order of how I’d like them packed on the belt for the cashier.

But the allure of not leaving the house at 7am in the freezing cold tomorrow morning was too tempting. And so was the $20 off your groceries and free delivery offers. If you’re new to PeaPod, you can use the code 60DAYSFREE for the same offer!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a HUGE online shopper. The Amazon delivery people drop something at our house almost daily. But there was just something about ordered my groceries – not household products, but meats and produce – that I couldn’t wrap my head around. What if they sent me bruised apples? What if the bananas are banged up? What if the lettuce is wilted?

I know I’m likely to last person on the plant to place her first online grocery order, but it’s the one thing I was holding onto, that I enjoyed doing in person.

I hesitate to say this is going to be my new normal….but we’ll see.

  1. I caved and ordered my groceries online too. I didn’t think I’d be interested because sometimes grocery shopping is my one kid-free thing to do during the week, but then we were having company and there just wasn’t time in the schedule to get everything done. I finally saw the benefit. It’s quite handy – but it’s hard to let go of the control! I do so much decision making while shopping, how could someone else make the decisions for me?! I don’t see myself doing all my grocery shopping online, but I definitely like having the option.
