If you are a new mother or have a newborn, or you are a busy and active person, ordering groceries might be ideal for you. Since the school year is approaching, there will be plenty of activities to occupy attention. Try forgetting going to the grocery store and have them delivered!

It has been almost a month since I gave birth to my third daughter and I am still in shock that we are now a family of five. Before I had my baby I took a continuous survey daily asking seasoned mothers, new mothers, and friends, what it was like to have three kids, especially under the age of 5. The majority of the responses were actually positive and it encouraged me that the true transition was between 1 and 2 children. I guess the true question should have been at what age because I have to admit that the transition between 1 and 2 children seemed easier from my memory.
Do you know that it has felt different the third time around? I have felt anxious, a bit overwhelmed, and claustrophobic? I imagine a lot of it has to do with hormones because while I have had lots of help the last month, I have STILL had overwhelming feelings. Suddenly laundry, cleaning, cooking, and just the fact if maintaining a home seem crazy. What I had to realize is that I had to let go of a lot of things. While I never deemed myself a SUPERMOM, I almost made it my goal to be able to do it all. What a major fail and a huge burden to put on myself.
I know it seems pretty wild to think I have come to this conclusion after having a THIRD child, but somehow, it takes a big change in life to knock some sense. I simply cannot do it all, especially with a new baby, so I rendered myself to my family, friends, and even to service that are offered outside my circle of friends, like a delivery service.
A few weeks ago I used GIANT’s delivery service called Peapod for the first time. Peapod.com is an online shop where anyone can shop for fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood, meat and dairy as well as best-selling national brands and GIANT private label products, all of which can be delivered to their home or workplace. As I have shown below, Residents and businesses in select communities can shop anywhere, anytime from their laptop, tablet or smartphone with Peapod’s mobile app. They can also create personal lists, read nutrition information online, and sort products rapidly by price or by nutrition criteria. GIANT Bonus Card users can jumpstart their first shop online from a list of items they have bought at their local GIANT simply by entering their card number online. Customers also earn GIANT Gas Rewards and A+ School Rewards for their online purchases. Groceries can be delivered as soon as the next day after the order is placed.
It all sounds like a dream, but I am sure whether you live in Pennsylvania or any other state, a delivery service like this can be a true mother’s helper. I have YET to venture to a grocery store with all three kids and I figure I won’t for a while until I feel I have managed my household a bit better. In the meantime, Peapod.com will be my new best friend, because it is the least amount of work I have to do while balancing my life. If you are online already, the only logical thing is to order groceries online.
I chose my groceries to be delivered on the earlier side so that my husband could help but what I learned is that the delivery people will bring in the groceries into your home. What a plus! Once you place an order online, you can leave a tip when you pay or you can give the tip directly to the folks delivering. Another fact that I liked about the system is the fact that once I put in my loyalty card into the system, it loaded all the items I normally add to my shopping card. It saved a lot more time.
