Well That Was Easier Than I Thougght

I was feeling pretty overwhelmed by the amount of shopping I had to do at the grocery store. Haven’t been for a couple of months. I KNOW. Not for a major supplies run.

I’ve been dreading this trip. One of our grocery stores has delivery options, so I gave them some exercise. Considering the amount of crap I needed to buy and the volume of some of it, I think the delivery charge was perfectly reasonable. And I didn’t have to wear myself out lugging the stuff from the store to the car, and then from the car to la casita. They delivered more than I could have got into my granny cart in one trip. Will I do this everytime? Hell, no. But it is a viable alternative.

Doesn’t look like I spent too much more than I would have had I walked the aisles myself. I may have spent more if I had as I actually gave more thought as to what I wanted to cook this week.

Count that as a win...

I recently found the joy of "click n pull" from SAMS Warehouse. I do it online, and go into the service desk, give my card and they wheel out my milk, creamer, eggs, celary, giant thing of toilet paper, etc. This is awesome because it will keep me from walking through and dumping a bunch of other stuff in my cart. Saves me money. Only thing is you really need to make sure they bring everything out.

"Click n pull"? I will have to investigate!

Too bad I let my membership lapse...

And we ALWAYS used to spend too much at Sam's.

Service is a beautiful thing. I'm going to go that route for the next big haul for my father's apartment.

Hmm...I've always wondered how it would be to have my groceries delivered. Sounds like money well-spent!

I'd like to think so.

When you add in personal time, aggravation, and energy... the delivery charge would be well worth it.

Plus you save money by not being in the store and suddenly seeing a special deal on, say, raspberry pop tarts or whatever your personal poison is, and giving in to temptation.

Well, that's good that delivery is good! That saves you a lot of work and running around.
