Thanks!  I am currently dealing with an illness and ordering the groceries and picking them up would actually help me out a lot.  I didn't know you could do that and avoid the fees.

Quoting MsBlueBelle:

 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.

That sounds like a good deal, and I'm glad you're there for your aunt. Too many people today don't take care of their elders. And I'm sorry about your sister.

 Just my elderly Aunt, aged 84 years old, sadly old, and one very overweight son, my only first cousin.  She cared for my Mom while she died many years ago and then took me in, all on top of running her own business, taking care of her husband, my grandparents, her parents, my cousin and me.  This was back in 1972 when women did not own their own business's.  And an unknown number of cats, did I post that I sent 60 cans of cat food?

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

Groceries arrived at 9 30 est.  On time at the earliest bit of the time frame.  Nice.  No word from Aunt, but cousin said it all looked good.

That's wonderful that you are able to do that for her. I should look into this for my dad.
