Remember this post a few months ago asking how you guys handle meal prep? Several of you recommended Instacart for ordering groceries online and I have to say it’s been a total game changer for us (thank you to those who recommended it!). I’ll share more about my experience below, but I did want to say I signed up for the Instacart Express membership about a month ago and have since convinced my parents to do the same. I’m a long way from being the next Ina Garten, but I love going on and ordering fruits, veggies, etc. for the weeks we’re not traveling and know we’ll be eating at home. I love the Instacart Express membership, but if you’re looking to test it out you’re in luck! Until June 25, when you order $35 worth of P&G products (think Bounty, Tide, Cascade, Crest, etc.) you’ll get free delivery.
I was kind of blown away the first time I ordered on Instacart. For some reason I thought I’d be ordering a box of groceries to arrive two or three days later, but I scheduled a delivery for within 1-2 hours (!!!), got text updates as someone was shopping and could select replacements for anything that was sold out, and had a delivery person show up with three bags of groceries less than 90 minutes later. Needless to say I’ve been hooked ever since. I might be living off of avocado toast and veggie rice bowls for the time being but hey, baby steps!
I’ve also been using Instacart for all our household essentials in addition to actual food items. Think dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, paper towels, shampoo, razor blades, toilet paper, toothpaste… I have them all saved in my Instacart favorites so I can just hop on and place an order any time we’re running low. When Instacart reached out about a promotion they’re currently running with P&G, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to share my experience with you and encourage you guys to try it out for yourselves! Right now when you order $35 of P&G products (brands like Bounty, Charmin, Crest, Downy, Gilette, Olay, Pantene, Swiffer, and Tide) your entire Instacart order will ship free. And if you’re an Instacart Express member, you’ll also get $5 off your order. Find out which stores near you are available on Instacart here!
