Yup, So I Am Lazy....

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. 

(This is not the picture of the items I had delivered obviously
but a picture of groceries I have purchased in the past)

  1. You have tempted me. No, I believe you have actually pushed me over the edge. I am going to try this. You had me at "within my budget". xo

    1. Stay within budget and no impulse buys ahem M&Ms, SCORE!

  2. Way to go!! I don't think I have that option here in Utah...hmmm I'll have to check it out! That is soooo nice!

    1. I would so check it out. Even if $5.95-$10.95 it is so worth not having to haul kids in, rush through the store because of said kids and then have to put them up to boot.

  3. I don't have kids, but I was actually contemplating that myself last week. I just moved into a new apartment and with a history of back issues and two prior knee surgeries, the thought of schlepping all the stuff to stock my new kitchen inside after all the moving REALLY did not appeal to me! I'm one of those people who will carry 16 bags at one time rather than make three trips out to the car. I ended up just buying in stages instead, but I can completely understand your point! Hey, you may even be saving money when you think about it. With no kids tagging along, you're probably not getting the extras they would have been asking/begging/pouting for in-store...or any impulse items that might otherwise have caught your eye at the checkout. ;)

    1. I say put your feet up, rest your back and let your fingers do the shopping. So easy.


I *heart* comments!
