Have you heard of this trend? Until recently, I had no idea I could get my groceries to go. It’s an incredible concept when you think about it. Punch in your order on an app right on your phone as you go through your day, and pick it up on your way home at night! I love that Food Lion is offering this service now. Groceries-to-go is a real thing that makes my life so much easier. Here are six reasons you might want to consider ordering your groceries online.
You might want to order your groceries to go because you are busy. Yes, I’m stating the obvious, but it is so true. School is starting, soccer is starting, and life is about to get even crazier as summer comes to an end. We are all so busy! Instead of spending twenty minutes driving to the store, an hour and a half walking through the store, and another twenty minutes driving home, you can actually have your groceries delivered to your door now when you choose Online Shopping with pick up or delivery. And the delivery fee isn’t much more than the pickup fee!
You might want to order your groceries to go because you don’t have time. This is slightly different because there are weeks when I literally cannot fit a trip to the grocery store into my schedule anywhere. That’s more than just busy. On those weeks when I have no time to spare at all, grocery delivery is a lifesaver. Because who doesn’t get sick of drive-thrus?
You might want to order your groceries to go because you want to save money. Use the Food Lion to Go app to shop Weekly deals as you do your menu planning, so now you are saving time and money. Everything you need to plan and shop is all in one place. No more combing through paper ads, copying a list of sale items by hand, clipping coupons, planning the menu, and shopping in a thousand different steps. It’s all right there.
You might want to order your groceries to go because you need groceries yesterday. I’m in this situation. We’ve been moving for what feels like a year. In reality, we got to our new home about five days ago. My refrigerator is empty. My freezer is empty. My cabinets are pretty bare. I need to restock the shelves, but I also need to unpack all the boxes, get the oldest two kids off to college, get ready for school starting in two weeks, take care of mail forwarding and for so many other reasons, I needed a full grocery run five days ago. Ordering grocery delivery fills a huge need for those of us moving or experiencing some other major life shift.
You might want to order your groceries to go because you prefer technology over aisles and carts and shoppers. I mean, let’s face it, there is something so incredibly cool about using a smartphone app to choose, order, and pay for all the grocery items we need. Makes me feel all techy and smart!
You might want to order your groceries to go because you are forgetful. Using the app to fill your cart as you think of the things you need is so handy for those of us who struggle remembering why we just walked into a room, let alone remembering that a child just asked for a new deodorant. Now, at least one of those things can go into my cart right away and not be forgotten later.
