Anyhooo....ClickList is the new on-line grocery shopping service. You shop, at home, on your computer. I filled out my list while I was drinking my coffee and wearing my pj's with Late Night TV blaring in the background. Who the heck doesn't want to grocery shop like that??? I have never been fond of grocery shopping. Richard loved to do it. And I loved for him to do it. Has not been one of the chores I wanted to take over. I used to dream of the day the grocery store would accept my order and then deliver it to me. ClickList doesn't deliver (yet) but it's the next easiest thing. I just drive up to the store at the designated time, call the number listed on the sign, and out they come with my entire order. They load it into the car. And wham, bam, thank you mam' I'm on my way home.
Eventually they will charge $4.99 for the service. The first three times you use the service now is free. I imagine it will cost you more when they start to deliver. But I figure I save at least $5.00 from no impulse buying while I am in the store.
I thought it would be awkward to have someone else pick out my produce. But it wasn't. I got the best looking red pepper and the freshest bag of fresh spinach. Exactly what I would have picked. And the boneless, skin-less chicken breasts would have been to my choice too.
The ordering could not have been easier. For right now you can only pay with a debit or credit card (that is all I ever use anyway) but I was told that soon you can pay on-line and never have to even show them your card. ClicktList will even keep track of what you buy so the next time your shopping will be ever easier. I reserved my pick-up time (for now it has to be at least for tomorrow) and set my timer for when I needed to head to the store. Threw on my crocs and kept on my shorts. Didn't even need to comb my hair because I didn't get out of the car.
When they brought my order to the car she
went over the entire order with me. She told me that I had ordered something they were out of but (for no added cost) they gave me a larger size of the store brand of the same thing. Win! Win! There was a small problem with my debit card (a story for another day) which was solved with a trip to the bank (grrrrrr) and back to get my groceries. The store personnel were the best. Even the manager came to car to make sure I was pleased with how things turned out.I think that was probably because of the debit card issue. He was so nice.
If you have this service in your area I highly recommend it. I am not being paid to tell you this either. I'd take the pay if they offer. But they haven'tHeck I may NEVER go to the grocery store again! That's how much I dislike shopping!!
