Woohoo! Such amazing response from my last post. You guys blew me away with your kindness, and willingness to give me your great ideas and pieces of advice.
Apparently a plethora of different people want to simplify shopping, such as; busy moms and dads juggling careers and kids, seniors unable to drive or suffering from various health conditions, people who simply abhor shopping, those with physical and mental disabilities like me, and folks who’d rather save the time it takes to shop and use it to focus on things more important to them. I honestly had no idea how many people are looking for ways around getting groceries but boy am I glad as they offered ideas by the boatload!
Several delivery services in Calgary were mentioned and I decided delivery would suit me best. I settled on Save On Foods, although I may give CO-OP a try in the future. There’s also an organic service called Spud that seems a little on the expensive side but I may also give them a whirl in the future just for comparisons sake. Stay tuned.
So, how was my experience with Save On Foods you ask? T’was a liberating, stupendous, relief of an experience, an overall thrill😁
I downloaded the app, browsed the items on sale and was easily able to find what I was looking for as everything was well categorized. If I found I couldn’t find something the search button solved that problem easily.
I was able to choose a two hour time slot during which they’d deliver. The delivery arrived promptly within the time slot and the delivery person was cheerful and friendly. The service also passed the produce test with flying colours. I couldn’t have chosen the oranges, pears, and pineapple I ordered better myself. The meat I ordered was also well chosen.
The delivery cost was $12.95 which is a small price to pay when I consider the average trip to the grocery store leaves me to a painful recovery lasting two or three days. Instead of prolonged recovery I was able to cook dinner the day I received my delivery which would have been classified as a bloody miracle had a gone to the store.
All in all grocery delivery is life changing for me and really lifts my spirits. I may not be able to fix my chronic pain but there are ways of making it easier to live with.
