Peace and Peapod

One thing I don’t like doing most times of year is grocery shopping, but that dislike triples during the holidays. So I decided to try out Peapod for the first time with a complimentary gift card.

It is not that I’m busy. Though that is true. Trying to get grocery shopping in the weekly rotation is no easy feat when you add holiday events, school concerts, christmas tree lightings and cookie swaps. Yet, it’s all the traffic that keeps me in grocery fear. I have to pass by two major shopping retail spaces and a major mall. {Shutter}. See ya fa-la-la-la-later. No way Santa Sleigh.

What I like about the online grocery service Peapod is that you can plan meals, shop ahead, use double coupons, and avoid impulse buys (especially from those high calories cookies that look sooooo good after standing in the return line at the mall for hours.)

So if it’s avoiding all of the holiday shoppers or because there is no time to get the ingredients for the cookie swap because of Timmy’s school holiday play, just place your order using the Peapod app or online. Order dinner ingredients while standing in the Picture with Santa line, or the baking ingredients while waiting for the concert to start.

And if you like your gift recipient, pick them up a Peapod gift card – maybe for elderly parents, your best friend or a new Mom (or a hectic Mom that needs break in the form of a Peapod gift card if you aren’t willing to fork over the name of your babysitter.)

Then in the New Year, make a new resolution to spend less time in the store. Use and do your weekly shopping then. Plan a pickup time around your schedule and save time. Even if you forgot some items (or the kids come home announcing they need cupcake for school tomorrow) you can do curbside pickup the same day. Wayland, Hudson, Dedham, Norwood also have curb side pickup. Even if your local Stop and Shop doesn’t have the pickup option, at least using Peapod has saved time in the store.

Mutlitasking is a great thing, saving time is an even better thing, and not having to get the kids in and out of car seats for the last minute baked good needs is a “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” thing.

Peace and Peapod is my mantra for the New Year!
