I just had the most comfortable grocery shopping trip ever.
I tuned out grouchy customers, focused on only the items I needed, didn't have to deal with employees who didn't want to be there, and eliminated my typical wandering through ever growing aisles -- a really helpful facet when navigating with crutches.
I'm pretty sure I actually decreased stress during the time I spent on this task.
How, you ask?
I know I've blogged about this in relation to my foot issues before, but now that I'm restricted again, I'm starting to wonder why I don't save myself the hassle of the grocery store more often. The delivery fee is only $10. The prices are not higher than what I pay when I shop myself. Now, instant gratification is not a thing with ValetGrocery.com; you do put in your order 24-48 hours in advance. But I'd say that unless you are an extreme couponer who has to have your groceries the second you think of your list, you should give this a try.
If you are in Baton Rouge and try Valet Grocery for the first time and don't mind an extra step, please let them know I sent you by filling out the "how did you hear about Valet Grocery" with my name and email address.
Even if you don't do that, though, consider giving hassle-free grocery-making a shot. IMO, it's worth it.
