I did something out of the ordinary...

... and now I'm not sure how I feel about it.

I ordered groceries from

Now first of all, I never go to Safeway for groceries. I'm a Walmart girl at heart. I've been going to the Walmart by my house since the day it opened. I know it like the back of my hand, and I can be in and out in no time. But, I digress.

There was a reason behind my madness. 1. I've ordered groceries from there once before, and it went well. I received them in a timely manner, and everything was in good shape. 2. It's just so hot out and I'm...big..... so I thought it would be fun for the groceries to come to me for once. 3. Most importantly, I tend to be a compulsive grocery buyer. I always go in with a list and come out with that... and more. So I though if I just buy them online I won't be enticed by all the snacky sugary things.

The catch is that they charge a $9.95 delivery fee. And there is a 4 hour window in which they deliver, (which I pick) so I have to be home for that 4 hours. Oh, and they have a $50 minimum in purchases. Hmm. I guess I figure that if some point in the future I have a sick baby or can't leave the house for some reason, it's nice to know there is another option. I'm sure this won't become a regular thing with me, but it's kinda exciting to try.....

I've wanted to give that a try myself. I looked into it a year ago and they didn't deliver in my area... I'll have to re-check. I'm with you on all the impulsive buys! I heard that they give you a coupon for free shipping once you order... but I'm taking that wasn't your experience :-)
