My universe has been forever altered.

I did something I've never done in my life before last week. I ordered my groceries online and had them delivered.

It was amazing in every way!

I have a few friends that do it, and I get all those annoying ads on my Facebook feed about them, but never did it. Mainly because I'm a martyr that's always trying to save a buck. Why didn't anyone shake me and tell me I had to do it?! I'm not even kidding, I actually saved money. No impulse buying. No hurrying up and throwing things in my cart because my 3 year old has had enough, or all my littles for that matter--when I have to bring them. First I researched which grocery delivery app seemed to be the best and cheapest in my area and I settled on Instacart. Then I searched for a coupon code that gave me free delivery and $10 off. I made an account and then picked Publix to shop through. I pulled up their weekly ad online and meal planned for the week around what was on sale. I then started adding stuff to my cart. I love how you're able to see exactly what you're spending. You can hem and haw about a product for a good 2 minutes if you need too and no toddler is screaming at you. It's great!

 I selected a two hour window and the shopper showed up just a little over an hour later with insulated bags and my groceries inside. The app would text me along the way when she needed to replace something and when she was headed to my home. The rest of the day when I would open my fridge and see all the groceries I didn't have to get myself, it would just put a big smile on my face.

To have one less thing to worry about when you have 4 kids felt so freakin awesome. I told H about it later and he was happy for me. This morning I tried another grocery store that does grocery pick-up since I had another $10 off coupon and it was super easy. Now this is modern technology I can get behind!
