i’m trying out jet.com’s grocery situation (they’re trying to be an amazon competitor and so their prices typically undercut amazon’s, and they just recently branched out to offer groceries) since they have free shipping over $35 and *supposedly* 2-day shipping it sounds like a dream as a disabled person who lives in the middle of nowhere and has to drive 30 min to a reliable grocery store. (our local IGA’s dairy/meat section is like. 60% expired food)
it is a bit more expensive than going to the grocery store ($1 each for a green pepper as opposed to 50 cents) but i’m eager to see how it stacks up to what i’m used to. also absolutely fascinated by the concept of someone shipping eggs to my fucking house and them not being broken.
i only spent $35 the first time to get that good good free shipping but i got an array of food to kind of test it out so i can reliably assess quality and report back–i got basics like cheese, bacon, eggs, green onions, green peppers, and rice, some other random stuff we’ve ran out of at the house, and then a few weird things that i’ve never seen in stores locally like japanese canned iced coffee (a fave of mine) and these little convenience snacks that have almonds, dried cranberries, and cheese which sounds like a good thing for me to keep in the fridge at work.
very boring shit probably to 90% of you but i’m excited at the prospects of me being able to take care of this chore which is like MONUMENTAL in terms of spoon requirement from my house–it also would allow for a lot less need for strict planning or trying to do one BIG grocery trip like once a month–if we could just buy what we are actually going to eat this week like the weekend before, that’d be aweeeeesome
