Grocery Delivery!

This Sparked Me!

This is completely counter-intuitive, but I'm saving a ton of money by having our groceries delivered by Peapod instead of going to the store. The prices are similar, most sales are the same, and I can still use coupons. But by virtue of me staying out of the store -- zero impulse buying! -- I'm forced to stick to the list. My grocery bill has dropped about 25%.

A nice little benefit is that I can spend the hour I used to spend in the grocery store RUNNING!

    I get groceries delivered out of necessity. I don't have a car and I don't live in walking distance of a store.

    I do this as well! Such a saver and I make sure I have what I need (I'm home to go through cabinets, etc). When I go grocery shopping I usually don't have a list and I impulse shop because I'm hungry! I end up with a bunch of side and snacks and spent A LOT of money!
