If you know what I'm talking about, then you probably already know what a revelation this service is.
If you don't, please let me share the magic.
Say it with me: pea pod.
Let it's liberating force set you free.
Pea pod is a grocery delivery service. That's right. You make a grocery order, and they deliver it to your house.
Okay, wait, now... let's not judge. Bear with me. I'm neither lazy, nor do I suffer from agoraphobia. Though if I did, Pea Pod would make things a lot easier to handle.
The fees are minimal (something like $7 a delivery) and, of course, they offer an introductory program where the first three months are free.
So, here's why I love pea pod.
-Taking a three year old and a five year old to the grocery store is not fun. It just isn't.
-Honestly, I don't enjoy going to the grocery either. It's a huge source of time suckage.
-When online, I find I can plan menus better.
-I don't engage in impulse buys when I'm at the computer.
-Grocery stores act like they mark everything in common values so that you can compare. Yet, I always find they inevitably list one cheese type in cost/per ounce and another in cost/pound. Yes, I could theoretically make the conversion, but do I? God, no. With pea pod, you can ALWAYS ask for a per unit price comparison
The most common thing people ask me when I mention Pea Pod, is whether they bring you shoddy vegetables, fruit, and meat. The answer, in my experience, is no. The groceries come not from the Stop and Shop, but from the Stop and Shop distribution center, so meat/veg/fruit is always at the peak of freshness.
Have you tried Pea Pod? Do you use a similar service? Would you if you could?
