I am not an organized person. I try to be, and I am in some areas of my life, but in most…I am not an organized person. One thing that I AM organized about is my meal planning. Every Saturday morning, I make a list of the meals I will make for the week, and then I make a grocery list of what I need. I don’t stop there. I then make my list in order of the aisles of the store to make grocery shopping extremely efficient. I usually have my son with me while I am shopping and efficiency is everything with a toddler!
Today I did something completely different. I woke up and made my list of planned meals for the week, made my grocery list, but I did not go to the store and shop. Nope, I used my grocery store’s curb side pick up feature and pulled into a parking spot, called the number on my confirmation email, and within 5 minutes my groceries were loaded into my trunk and I was off. Mind. Blown.
That whole experience saved me about 1 hour of my precious weekend. Someone else did the shopping for me, and it was awesome! I appreciate this luxury so much! I paid for the year subscription and now I will be doing this every Saturday this year. I can’t even begin to imagine what this time saving experience will do for me!
I actually became inspired to try this from a blog posted here from someone in my district. She posted on this last week, and it really fueled my interest to really research this and then finally make the choice to go ahead and sign up. Now….to work on figuring out how to get someone to cook all of these planned meals. If anyone has any suggestions, I am all ears! 🙂
