More Giveaway Goodness

>> Monday, October 27, 2008

As a mom with a 2 month old baby, I am constantly looking for ways to simplify life. One thing I can't seem to be consistent with is meal planning and grocery shopping. There just never seems to be a convenient time to take my rowdy two year old and my infant to the grocery store to maneuver the aisles and fight the crowds and try my best to get everything on my list before one of the three of us starts to melt down. Have you been there? So when I was approached by PeaPod about trialing their grocery delivery, I jumped at the chance. PeaPod is is the country’s leading Internet grocer serving 23 markets, including the Chicagoland area. They have an amazing selection of groceries and they deliver them to your door. What could be better than that!!

They have a great selection of fresh produce and meats as well as the usual dry goods and boxed foods (ie: cereal, pasta, canned goods, etc...). You may see a slightly higher price on some things, but then again you are shopping from the convenience of your couch and then you choose when the groceries arrive at your door. Worth a few extra pennies in my opinion.
We may not be able to afford to do it for every grocery trip, but it is certainly one of those things that is good to have when you need it.

Check out their website ( to see if they have service to your area. They are adding new locations all the time. The folks at PeaPod would like to offer one lucky reader a $20 gift certificate on their first order to get you started and show you just how convenient and wonderful it can be to have your groceries delivered to your door. Just leave a comment on this post before midnight on Friday the 31st. One winner will be drawn at random on Saturday the 1st and the winner notified by e-mail. Make sure you leave me a way to contact you if you win.
Good luck and happy grocery shopping!!
Oh, and be sure to visit my other giveaway for a festive, holiday ring sling.

They just started here, and I should avoid them, as hubby works for competition, but convenience wins over loyalty!

When we lived in Oregon, we used Home Grocer and then Webvan all of the time to get our groceries. Once we moved though, we never picked it up again. I would love the opportunity to give Peapod a try, as it appears they are in our area.
