Have you ever used Peapod grocery delivery? I used to use it all the time when my children were babies. I would place my order for groceries online and it would arrive at my door (at that time I lived in a third floor apartment, so a lot of schlepping!), all ready for me to put away in my kitchen.
Over time, going to the grocery store has become one of the chores that I take on regularly. Often we stop there a few times per week for a few things and then do a large grocery run on the weekend. I don’t mind that being part of my routine exactly, but it does eat up a lot of my time and energy. Which is why I’m going to build Peapod back into my routine.
If I’m making a list of what to buy anyway, why not do it on a website and have it delivered? That allows me more time with the kids, helping with homework, and getting my own work done.
I have mentioned that I’ve had two surgeries in the last eight months. I went grocery shopping beforehand and took the kids with me as soon as I was able so that they could help me lift things off of the shelves. I am kicking myself now for not taking advantage of the services available to me, like Peapod!
One of the reasons that I started doing my own shopping was because I was sure that I could get a better price at the local store than I could using a delivery service. Budgeting is important to me, so sales are also important. And that might have been the case once upon a time, but it isn’t anymore.
Peapod offers a full selection of items that are on sale and they accept manufacturer’s coupons. So when back to school time comes around, I’m going to take advantage of all of this. Back to school time is crazy! New schedules, less sleep, more homework, packed lunches – there are so many things to think about that having anything be easier is a complete win.
One of the things that my kids enjoy snacking on and taking to school is Lunchables. Everything comes in a compact container and the kids get to build their meal themselves. I usually buy these when they are on sale 10 for $10 (because I know that this is as cheap as they get) and I always stock up at that time.
While my daughter will eat lots of the varieties, my son will only eat the Lunchables pizza option. He is a very picky eater and almost never eats meat (he calls himself a “carbivore”), so when there is a sale, I know we will be getting 10 cheese pizza boxes for him.
For a limited time, Peapod also has Lunchables on sale 10 for $10! I can tell you for a fact that this is the best price that is currently available anywhere, so I highly recommend taking advantage of the savings. They work out as an easy after-school snack or a school lunch. Throw a piece of fruit and a juice box into the mix and your child has everything they need!
