As a stay at home mom I have a lot of stuff to get done during the day; laundry, dishes, cleaning, vacuuming, keeping Clare alive… The thing I hate doing the most is grocery shopping. I’ll put it off for so long we’ll be living on macaroni and cheese, pizza, and Chik Fil A for the week. I hate it with a fiery passion deep down in my soul.
It takes me at least a good hour to get through the list, sometimes two hours. It’s absolutely the worst. And going to the store with a 9 month old, forget about it. It’s worse than having a root canal. Usually the hubs does the grocery shopping so that helps but then I end up losing time with him on a weekday after he’s been at work all day.
I discovered that Kroger has this thing called ClickList. I go online, I order groceries, I schedule a pick up time, I drive up to the store (I don’t even have to get out of the car!), and they load up my groceries for me. It’s great…I think. I haven’t picked up my first order yet. But the ordering part was super simple. Aaaand they have a section, based on your savings card number, that stores what you’ve recently purchased so you don’t even have to remember what it was you last shopped for. It’s genius, I tell you, genius!
I’m not positive but I think Walmart offers something similar but I like Kroger’s selection of meat and produce. Oh and you can use digital coupons too.
So, my grocery shopping days have evolved into something easy and quick AND I don’t have to spend two hours in the grocery store!
