If you lead a busy lifestyle, you may find grocery shopping a challenge – especially when you throw coupons, kids and/or jobs in the mix. With that being said, do you take advantage of online grocery shopping for convenience? Many online sites like Amazon PrimePantry, Peapod, Safeway, and Hannaford (just to name a few) offer online discounts, fresh & frozen food options, and/or curbside delivery, making grocery shopping from home much more convenient than before BUT…is it worth it?

I wanted to share an awesome service I found. It’s available at certain Hannaford grocery store in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hamphsire, and New York. Hannaford To-Go lets you go on Hannaford’s website, order all your groceries, and then drive to the store and your order will be loaded into your car and you can pay and go! You can use all your coupons just like you would if you went into the store. I find it great because I can see what’s on sale, search online for a coupon, print it out and bring it with me.
I’m able to find the best deals while sitting in my pj’s and drinking coffee. As a mom of 4 which includes 10 month old twins, grocery shopping is a challenge. I rarely get to the store without the kids and I find that I spend more then my budget because I’m to busy making sure my kids are not touching anything, aren’t fighting with each other, etc to actually pay attention and make sure I’m getting the best deal. There is a small fee – $5 or less depending on the size of your order, but the first time you use the service the fee is waived so it’s worth it to check it out. I also notice in my Bank of America cash back offers that they are offering 10% back on a Hannaford To-Go purchase!
