i’ve had to leave a cart in the store and go home because a tantrum was…well a tantrum. i’ve even left my cart at checkout because my card was declined…the bank failed to leave a voicemail saying they were canceling my card due to possible fraud. the cashier was less than sympathetic, giving me a frustrated look. wearing my yoga pants that hadn’t seen a gym in months, a messy bun and a baby crying on my hip…i left. i laugh about it now, but grocery shopping can be tricky when you have a tiny human in tow.
last week a friend was telling me they tried ordering groceries online. guys, this is amazing! my local grocery store has curbside pickup. i ordered online, selected a time for pickup and paid. i went later that day and texted the spot i was parked at. i didn’t have to get out of the car at all! i was parked for about 5 minutes. they even gave E some animal crackers while we waited.
the only downfall…the fruits and vegetables weren’t as fresh and i had hoped. we decided next time to swing by an organic store and buy ours or maybe take a trip to a farmers market.
gone are the days of going to the grocery store with E, instead, more time playing outside…in my yoga pants and messy bun 😉
have you tried curbside pickup for your groceries?
