Ok, maybe that is a little harsh. I mean I am a mother of 4 (3 at home) …
Between working full time, taxing children to/from sports, church activities, household chores, etc…sometimes time is just scarce. That being the case this past weekend and knowing that the week was not going to bring any reprieve, I broke down and did it.
If you read my MPM post this week, you know that I had our weekly groceries delivered! Yup! You heard it right. DELIVERED. And let me tell you, I will DO IT again. That is how simple and easy it was.
AND, wait for it, I stayed way within my budget because no impulse purchases.
AND, there is more….I ordered them Sunday night on my computer, in the comfort of my own home, while the kids were sound asleep.
"Mom, can I have this?”
“Mom, I’m tired.”
“Mom, I’m hungry.”
"Mom, he hit me."
"Mom, are we done yet?”
Zero, ziltch, nada, none of that!
I had our groceries delivered Tuesday when I knew my husband was going to be home to meet the delivery guy and therefore I didn’t even have to put them away. It was as if the grocery fairy flew in and food appeared in my cupboards and refridgerator. So, so nice.
So if you have a store that delivers in your area and you are a mom of a few or several small children, I say just DO IT. At least try it. Most of the time the stores have free delivery for first time users and then after that it is based on the amount you spend. Even if you do have to pay for delivery, what is the cost of your sanity?
And you can even (in most cases) use the store discount/rewards cards and receive the discounts on the products just like you were at the store.
Unless you need the food immediately…Order and deliver. Simple as that.

but a picture of groceries I have purchased in the past)
