Computerized Grocery Shopping: A Sure Way to Guarantee Saving Time and Money
When working around the clock at home on a school project or work assignment you need to make the best use of every free minute you have. So time consumed for even the most elemental activity such as shopping for home maintenance and upkeep supplies becomes a necessary evil. After all, both the time and the money you use when shopping could be used in a more productive manner.
That is the situation I was in when I was preparing for my license examinations. While I enjoy cooking and try to find the right ingredients for my favorite dishes, I found I needed to dedicate my time to preparing for the examinations. And I learned that I’d be better off if I saved the time spent searching for the key ingredients and spices I used to prepare my favorite dishes.
So when I found my refrigerator and cupboard shelves nearly as empty as they were when I first moved into my apartment I began considering alternatives to ordering take-out food from the local fast-food shop on the corner. And that is when I thought I’d try having my kitchen and pantry needs delivered by Peapod.
Of course, I’d heard about Peapod some time ago, but I felt it was a service more for hermits or folks who disliked shopping. And since my profession as an advertiser meant I was out on the streets and visiting stores every day, I felt such a service wasn’t one that I needed. I also figured that a company that delivered groceries to one’s doorstep would naturally charge a customer dearly for the service. But under the circumstances I figured it wouldn’t hurt to give them a try on this occasion.
So I made a list of items I wanted for my next week meals. It included everything from milk and eggs to fresh parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. And just for variety I added some fish, meat, poultry and vegetables, along with desserts and cleaning supplies. I used Peapod’s “Express Shop” tab to find my specific items and select the products I wanted. When I checked out I specified the delivery date to receive my purchases. And as a new customer I used my Groupon Coupon to give me a $15 discount off of the total price of my first order.
This experience made me a dedicated patron of Peapod. Groupon is currently offering a Podpass that gives a customer 60 days of unlimited orders. And Peapod service and dependability assures that I can focus my attention on the needs of my clients while being confident that my home and kitchen are fully stocked.
