Friday Favorites - Online Shopping

I am finally back on the wagon with doing Friday Favorites on the blog. And, I definitely love this one!

The bishop and I had a talk on Tuesday night. I am clearly stretched very, very thin. I have zero time. Like, none. A normal day is getting up, getting three boys to school, hurrying to work, going home at 5, making dinner for the gang, heading to the gym, getting home and having conversations with each boy, going to bed. That's on an easy day. Days when I work both jobs, you can just forget about it. It's tough. It's tough on me and it's tough on the boys.

Yesterday, WinCo opened right across the street from us. I am super excited about this, as their prices are great and I have always felt like that had what we needed. Having said that, there was no way in heck I was going there yesterday and our fridge consisted of ketchup, expired sour cream, about six eggs, left overs, and mayo.

I decided to try out the online ordering. I am here to tell you that I LOVED it. I am a fan. It was relatively simple. It would probably be completely easy peasy is I didn't need everything. I received an email confirmation. When I got home, I told Jackson and Kaydon that they would need to go pick it up between 6 and 7 (they give you an hour window to get it picked up). I gave Jackson my debit card and headed to the gym.

When I got home, most of the groceries were put away. I asked Kaydon how it went. He said that they just followed the instructions on the sign where they parked. They brought everything out. Jackson gave them the debit card. They gave Jackson and Kaydon treats to eat in the car while they loaded everything. They also gave the boys a separate/updated printout. It included any substitutions that needed to be made, and if they were out of certain items, price-matches, etc.

Although I think Smith's is way over-priced, last night was exactly what I needed it to be. It was simple. It was quick. It was one less hour that I had to try to fit in somewhere. I am totally a fan!
