Valet Grocery.

Once upon a time, there was a redhead who really didn't mind grocery shopping. While Wal-Mart was never her favorite place for its own special reasons, grocery shopping itself was never a dread.

Then, the redhead hurt a toe and developed plantar fasciitis. The podiatrist said to stop all activity to help the foot heal. Inactivity didn't help the foot, but the redhead did discover Valet Grocery.

At first the idea seemed crazy -- paying someone to buy groceries? Who is that lazy? But, after months of severe pain from minimal walking, and after subsisting on fast food and convenience store items every few weeks, the redhead needed groceries. Without the foot pain that would surely come from hobbling down a grocery store aisle, if limping around the office was excruciating.

So, Valet Grocery it was. And what a surprise: the delivery fee was only $5. The grocery prices were reasonable. The driver who made the delivery wasn't creepy. The order was accurate. The deliver was made on time, every time. And the foot didn't have to hurt any more from the purchase.

The redhead recommends Valet Grocery. It works it. And is worth every penny of the $5 delivery fee. Plus gratuity.


You should give it a shot.


  1. Too cool. I had grocery delivery in NYC and definitely miss it. Nice to have this option. You should put a referral link in this post -- it looks like you can do that from their website.

  2. We discovered that too-late after our girls were born. Getting groceries was always a strain with two babies, and then we discovered the stores would deliver them. Alas, by then the plan to relocate from here back to La was well advanced, so we only managed to use the service a couple of times before Mrs T, and our munchkins, got on a plane and all our stuff was put on a ship (kicks himself!)


Throw me sumthin', mister!
