5.  Great Services our Members are suggesting:

  • Not sure if this is helpful, but in order for Kathy and I to “stay at home” we have been using a
    shopping/delivery service called instacart.com.

It is helpful to be a bit computer literate, and it is a bit expensive, but it seems to work good.
In our area, we can choose a number of stores like Sam’s Club, Aldi, Heinens, Target, CVS, etc.
Walmart is not an option.

You choose a store and you can see the inventory they have in stock at that moment.
You place an order and choose a delivery time.  It is best to do this in the early am, as the delivery times
disappear quickly.

You get a text when they start to pull your order and you can watch online.  If a product is not on the shelf,
they may suggest an alternate, which you must approve.  After the order is filled, the deliver it to your home
and you can watch their progress on a map as they drive to your home.

It is good to take a quick look at you order when it arrives to be sure they do not make a mistake and leave
the wrong order.

6.  Greeting Cards  We know it’s hard to go out and get greeting cards.  Here are a few cards with pics from Geri’s garden that you can print, cut, and send.  Each link produces two cards.
