Looks like a lot of good stuff. How much are the fees for peapod? I live in mass as well.

 Because I chose to deliver on Wednesday, it was only $3.99, saving $6.00.  There is a 99 cent fuel surcharge.  It is FREE if you order and then go and PICK IT UP yourself.  They have specials on the site when you pick delivery times.  If there are not many deliveries, the site adds discounts to the schedule.

Looks like a good list, but i didnt see a price? I think a delivery service for groceries etc is awesome for the elderly. Even for a new parent this would be awesome!

 Sorry, I paid $91.68.  Peapod was a service I used when my sister was diagnosed with brain cancer, which she later died from.  I did what I could to make sure she had what she needed.

Sounds good to me.

 I only purchased what was on sale as 'loss leaders' and purchased the correct amount of cans of cat food to get the store bonus card, which I signed up for.  I am looking up coupons now that I can load up onto that card, too. I will get a paper invoice once the groceries are delivered, copy of the signature of who signed for them, etc. What I think is great about this is I live in Alabama, not anyplace near it, so I am happy I have a way to take care of an elderly Aunt, who is limited by weather and health to make sure she has what she needs.
