HyVee is coming to Brookside!! Well shoot, they already did!!
On Monday, HyVee came to Brookside and delivered my groceries to my front door step. These were all groceries I had selected on their website, at 11:08 pm, in my bed, with my husband, as we sipped wine and watched some TV.
What type of freaking grocery store, allows you to sit on a bed, drink alcohol and watch TV while you decide what type of deli meat you would like? From my experience, I do not think they would care if my two boys were both screaming while I tried to decide if the brand name mini rice cakes are worth it or is the store brand really the same thing and way cheaper?
It was amazing! #LifeChanging I highly recommend it. I insist that you try it!!
The website was pretty easy to use and seems to get easier with time. When I signed in today to start filling my cart for this Friday the website remembered what I ordered last time and had it towards the top of the list. The selection was great. They also seemed to have just about everything they offer in the store.
Any guesses at how much this may have cost me? You know to have someone wonder through the store on my behalf and pick out the 6 different yogurts I wanted, find the soy sauce, track down where the big tortillas are- then load it in a van and drive it to my house to be carried to my door. $15 $10… IT WAS FLIPPING FREE!!! If you spend more than $100 it is free. If you spend less than $100 it costs $5.
Which on the days that I wake up to realize we are out of milk for my 2 1/2 year old, I will gladly pay $5 for someone to bring a gallon of milk to my house. If it avoids having to drag two little boys to the grocery store, I am in! Or trying to squeeze swinging by the store into an already busy workday, money well spent!!
I have also spent the last few days dreaming about all the other times this will come in handy. How about those days we are having a little gathering of friends at our house for a party. Wouldn’t it be great if the groceries for that party all just magically showed up at my doorstep? I could use those hours that day to help prep for the party or maybe just maybe, shower and be ready and enjoying a glass of wine as my guests arrive rather than running around with my head cut off.
Please I beg you, don’t shuffle this idea off for another day. Check it out here, today, tonight… glass of wine optional.
**Special thanks to my friend Jennifer Robertson for sharing this with our playgroup weeks ago. You rock! Another special thank you to our sweet Annmarie Jamar for encouraging me to actually try it. You are terribly good at nudging me towards things that all around better my world!
