Grocery shopping…ugh! Whenever I walk into the store I become confused and overwhelmed. God forbid I don’t have a list with me. Lists keep me sane in a hectic paced environment like the grocery store.
My local grocer, Publix, has an app, which I have on my phone to browse the weekly sales. It’s a big help, but still requires me to drag my behind to the store…or so I thought.
One day while using the app I saw a place for grocery delivery. Curious and a tad giddy, I clicked the link, which took me to another app called Instacart. I discovered to my great delight that I could shop from my phone. A personal shopper would do all the heavy lifting and deliver the haul straight to my home for a modest fee plus tip!!
I decided to give it a whirl, so I logged on and away shopping I went. I had the highest of hopes and I wasn’t disappointed.
Within two hours after checkout, a lady arrived lugging my groceries with her. She wouldn’t even let me help her. The bags were carefully placed on my kitchen counters then away the shopping angel went.
Three uses of Instacart later I no longer shudder when I think of grocery shopping. I do visit the store, but I’m much more relaxed just knowing I don’t have to if I don’t want to.
