Try It!

I tried something new yesterday. I had been thinking about trying it for a few weeks now. So I went ahead and did it. Afterwards I felt like a LAZY mother.

I went online, no shock there, and ordered my groceries. My "personal shopper" then shopped and bagged my groceries and had them ready for me as I drove up to the front of the store in the designated, "Big Y to Go" area. I gave her my credit card, she scanned it and and then loaded my WEEKS WORTH of groceies into my trunk. The enitre round trip took less than 15 minutes! I didn't have to unload 2 children and force my 2 year old into a cart, I didn't have to listen to Hannah ask for cookies and candy that she KNOWS she cannot have and I didn't forgot ANYTHING! It was so nice. My only job was putting the groceies away at home, which I can totally handle!

I did feel kind of LAZY, and I will not do it every week. But it's been a very busy week and the weekend only get busier. Now I can check the grocery store off of my to-do list and spend some extra time with my family.

The process does cost $10, but when you are spending MUCH MUCH MORE than that on groceries, it is totally worth it. If you have a BIG Y near you, check it out:


  1. Oh I wish I did! I would totally spend $10 to avoid the hassle of taking the kids to the grocery store!

  2. that does look pretty cool...I'm going to have to check it out!

  3. Man, I wish I had one of those stores here! How easy that would make my life!!!!

  4. I am so sad that doing something that takes some obvious stress out of your life would make you feel lazy...My kids are 9 and 12 and I still hate taking them to the store...Anytime you find something that makes life easier you should embrace it...You are not lazy for having someone else pick out the groceries you NEED...

  5. I am so jealous! When I used to live in a (much more) populated area I used to use Peapod. I LOVED doing my shopping online and the delivered it right to my door! It's not laziness - it is tme management!

  6. I've been thinking about doing this but I've been worried about the quality of the produce (you know - are they gonna check or just grab the pint of already too ripe blueberries and just throw them in my order?). S?top and Shop does this too. Which location did you use? I've found some pretty bad Big Y's in the area.
