Supermarket dread no more! The New Year’s resolution to eat healthier has become a cliché, but this year we’ve got a solution that will make it easier: convenient, affordable to-your-door grocery delivery. Instead of schlepping to the store with restless kids and a disorganized list, how about you resolve to spend your precious time planning healthy meals for the family and grocery shopping with a click of the mouse? Here’s a roundup of some of the most convenient options.
Behold, newbie Instacart sends personal shoppers to Whole Foods, Safeway, Costco, and now Rainbow Grocery, and deliver all around the Bay Area! Instacart claims its shoppers are “experts at picking produce and other perishables,” and your gang's desired ripeness level can be specified in their handy notes section. Yes, they’ll deliver alcohol. Double yes, they just added Rainbow. All yours for $3.99 plus the price of groceries. Or, with Instacart Express (free for 14 days, then $99/year), every order above $35 is free.
