Working from home has provided me with so many incredible opportunities for my daughters. My youngest is almost three years old and while the circumstances that led to me being home with her are very different than those when I was home with her big sister as a toddler, I love all the time I’ve had with both my daughters. They do grow so quickly and these years have been the best for our family. That being said, I do actually work so my time availability for everything else is the same as any working parent. Grocery shopping, laundry, meal prep, dishes, homework help and everything in between our weekly tasks include excellent time management or it just doesn’t get done. Grocery shopping is not the item on my list that can’t not get done but it’s the chore I avoid most. Going grocery shopping with a toddler is a wonderful educational opportunity for her and delicately put, the most challenging part of my day. Wowza, it’s exhausting. We love shopping at Target but some days just don’t have the time to leisurely wander the aisles while little sister takes her sweet time getting through our shopping list. Last week I used Shipt grocery delivery for the first time and had an incredible time saving experience.
What is Shipt?
Shipt grocery delivery is a same day service that allows you to shop and schedule grocery delivery as often, or not, as you would like. Some days you might just need a gallon of milk but other days you have a full weekly meal planning menu to shop for – both orders can be placed online and delivered to your door the same day. Personal shoppers will complete your shopping list at nearby local stores so there is no extra wait time and you have a real person reaching out to you with any questions. The grocery delivery can be scheduled to arrive wherever you want – home, work, to friends or even to where you are staying on vacation! With the $99 annual plan, you receive free delivery on all orders over $35 and can receive same day delivery in as soon as one hour. All grocery items at your participating retailers in your area are available for delivery.
Shipt is in over 84 cities and partners with retailers and vetted shoppers to deliver the freshest groceries and everyday essentials. I signed up and started shopping at Target the same day.
How to shop with Shipt
You can browse your nearby retailers then shop by featured promotions, categories or specific item names.
Shopping at Target is exciting when you see the promotions where you receive gift cards for purchasing a certain amount of specific products. You can do that online with Shipt too! Browse the featured promotions to shop just as you would in store.
Weekly Sale Items
Other categories include weekly sale items where you can see everything on sale for the week.
The Healthy Eating category was a great way to remember fresh produce and other healthy cooking ingredients.
Top Essentials shows you the most popular items for the day. It’s also a great place for reminder items you might otherwise forget to add to your shopping cart. Think of it as browsing the aisles to make sure you pick up everything you need at home.
If you have a shopping list already made, you can easily search items by name and add them to your cart. I enjoyed seeing the items listed by brand and price so I could save while shopping.
You have the option of selecting same or next day delivery with an easy checkmark next to your preference.
Knowing we were getting close to both my daughters’ bedtimes, I selected delivery for the next day 9 to 10am. The Shipt order confirmation screen showed I had selected my desired time and the order would be processed the next morning.
Just after 8:00 am the next morning I received a text from my Shipt shopper, Candace. She let me know she was shopping with my order and asked if I needed to make any changes or additions. Earlier that morning I used the last of our dish soap so the text from Candace was welcomed. I asked her to add a large bottle of Dawn dish soap to my order and she then asked me if I had a specific size scent preference. She also confirmed when she had completed shopping and was on her way with the delivery to my home.
My Shipt shopper arrived in the delivery time window with my complete order plus dish soap add on! She brought the bags in to my kitchen island and asked if I needed help unloading cold items.
After the delivery I received a receipt by email with the option to tip my shopper and leave a rating. My shopper did a fabulous job and saved me so much time. I would have gone shopping, forgotten the dish soap, then had to return the same day…with my super fun to shop with almost three year old daughter.
A week later and I haven’t stepped into a grocery store because I’ll be shopping with Shipt at Target again today.
