With every day life getting busier and busier for families, finding ways to make things easier are a top priority! I don't know about you, but grocery shopping is one of the weekly responsibilities I dislike the most! Do you use a grocery delivery or order in advance and pick up service for your weekly shopping?

    I love grocery shopping. It does feel like a chore at times but it's 40 minutes a week that I'm guaranteed to have to myself. I'm reluctant to give that up!

    I am usually able to do my grocery shopping during the week which makes a big difference as far as making the experience more pleasant. I've become pretty good at meal planning for the week and organizing my list by aisles of the store. A bit OCD perhaps, but it really helps speed up the process for me!

      I organize my list by the aisles of the store too. I save so much time and feel less chaotic this way.

    I used Peapod a couple of years ago during the winter when my kids were really little and it was worth every penny!

    I would definitely use grocery delivery or pickup if it was available in my area, but I answered "no" because for now, I don't have a choice but to do it myself!

    I used a grocery delivery service when my little was a newborn, and it was so helpful. I've used one a few times since then, too, and I appreciate that I have the option do so.

    I use grocery delivery all the time! I actually enjoy going grocery shopping myself, but it's hard to fit it in without the kids - and with the kids can be quite hectic. I've used many grocery delivery services and they're lifesavers when you're crunched for time.

    I don't mind the grocery shopping, it's the meal planning that stresses me out! The grocery pickup service has become so popular in our area that sometimes it's a 24 hour + wait for pickup. When I need/want me groceries I can't wait that long.

    I used to enjoy doing the shopping with my older son but now with three kids I use the pick-up service: select and click while feet up and enjoying a glass of wine!

    I use Amazon to grocery shop about every two weeks or so. Its literally the best thing ever an saves me the trouble or anxiety of being out in the stores alone with 3 children lol. They also love when the groceries come

      Do you get fresh foods on Amazon? I always worry I’ll get lesser quality items if I don’t pick them out myself but haven’t tried it yet to know!!

      •   -   06/01/2022

        YES!! Fresh produce and fresh meat/etc. I'm the same way but its been great!

          🙌🏽 thank you, it’s so helpful to hear from someone who’s tried it! Sounds like a game changer…

            No problem! Omg you are so right, I'm big on reviews myself lol. Its the best thing thats happened to a parent (lol)

    I don’t use a delivery service (except for a few pantry staples I get on Amazon or Target) but am a HUGE fan of increased availability of drive up services. Though I prefer to go in and pick out fresh foods like fruits, veggies, meats and cheeses myself, it makes life so much easier to have most of my list picked out for me ahead of time. I usually try and combine a drive up pick up at Target with my Costco runs for a streamlined weekly shopping experience! I also really appreciate not having to get the kids out of their car seats just to pick up diapers or some other random thing we’ve run out of and need right away.

    I've never used a grocery service. I prefer to go in myself and pick out what I want when I am there rather than order online.
