Another city perk
I have 5 girlfriends in town for my 2nd Bachelorette party (Holla!), and I wanted to make them a really nice breakfast on Sunday morning. I knew carrying all the groceries including a gallon of milk, gallon of o.j., champagne for the o.j., and tequila for the milk (Yum!) would be very heavy for the mile walk home. So I remembered seeing these Peapod trucks in our neighborhood delivering groceries to people's high-rise apartments. I looked it up, and realized the price is very reasonable. The delivery price was only $6, and I had a $10 off coupon, so it's perfect!
Once you place your order, you choose a pick-up time and you have several hours to change your order. Last night after a few cocktails, I "drunk ordered" some more stuff, because why should I live without Doritos?
When I finally get a full-time job, I've decided I'm going to Peapod it every week, because after an entire winter of schlepping my groceries a mile in the snow, well, I deserve it. (I wonder how I'll tell that story to my kids? It will probably end up being five miles in a blizzard, and I couldn't afford shoes so I got frostbite on my toes and nearly lost every tootsie. Yeah--I like that.)
