You guys all know that I’m a crazy workaholic, like I’m not joking – this is what a regular work day looks like for me. I have an INSANE schedule so I’m always on the go, hustling hard all day, err day. That means SUPER late night grocery runs (think 2AM). Healthy living is SO important, but the lack of sleep was killlling me so not gonna lie, I found myself ordering junk quite frequently. I was REALLLLLY good with my diet last year, but with everything going on with my degree on top of my various jobs + projects, I found myself splurging on delivery food just out of sheer convenience. Well, I officially have no more excuse because Shipt has got my back.
Shipt is a membership-based grocery marketplace that enables the delivery of fresh foods and household essentials. Since its founding in 2014, they’ve been rapidly expanding and now offer quality, personalized grocery delivery to tens of millions of households across the United States. Through their mobile or desktop app, members browse a full selection of items available at their local grocery and choose a convenient one-hour delivery window. A Shipt Shopper visits the local store to hand pick and deliver the items to the member as soon as one hour after the order. They utilize a community of shoppers to deliver, and they’re hired based on a thorough application process, interview process, and background check so everything’s safe and legit.
Shipt is a membership-based service. For $99 per year, you can get unlimited grocery deliveries on all orders over $35 (!!!!) just remember to tip your shopper afterwards – you can pay them with cash on the spot or with credit on the app. Anywho, that’s the gist of everything, but I want to bring a few extra points to your attention. As you can see above, you can earn quite a bit of credit for the next time you shop – yay for saving money.
Also, if something you want is out of stock, you have the choice of having your shopper contact you, skip it or use their best judgment. I chose to have my shopper reach out to me via text so she consulted me before grabbing a different brand, portion size, etc. If an item is not available in the app, customers can use the special request feature within the app to request an item for their Shopper to locate in the store. NOTE: Shipt cannot deliver tobacco products or prescriptions, however, they CAN deliver alcohol in certain areas where it is legal and where there are shoppers certified to deliver alcohol.
Here’s my grocery haul, guys!
My mom caught me studying my new microwavable dinner, haha. I used to LOVE Amy’s veggie lasagna so when I saw this risotto listed on Shipt, I couldn’t resist. Update: I’ve devoured it since purchasing, and it was actually pretty nomtastic! It tasted more like mushroom soup with rice, but I was totally ok with that since I am a fan of mushroom EVERYTHING. What do you guys think of microwavable meals – yum or yuck?
So here’s part 1 of my spread minus the swiffer wipes & the chips (cheetos + jalapeño kettle) I got, ha:
- La Croix: I love, love, LOVE all sparkling water so I decided to give this brand a try! My go-to is Spindrift, but they didn’t have that listed. It’s not a big deal though because it’s grown on me! I’ve only tried the lime so far, but it’s good so I’m happy.
- Bobali Original Crust + Shredded Mozzarella: I got this for splurge day! I figure making pizza at home is much healthier than getting something delivered from Domino’s. The last time I had this was with my ex back in college so it’s a throwback for sure.
- Thomas English Muffins, Whole Wheat: I’m a sucker for whole wheat everything. In case you didn’t notice, I don’t believe in cutting carbs! I bought this for brekkie. I have it with organic jam and a side of scrambled egg whites!
- Whole Wheat Buns: …yep, obsessed with whole wheat everything. I love having lean turkey burgers and black bean burgers so these are a must for me. TBH, when I run out, I just use sliced whole wheat, but it’s nice to have buns.
- Organic Chicken Broth: I like to have a bowl of this with brown rice and kimchi for dinner! It’s a basic alternative when I don’t have time to cook guk (any kind of korean stew or soup). I’ll throw some protein and veggies in there if I have time or just have it plain if I’m in a rush.
- Ancient Harvest Rotini: My go-to is barilla whole wheat, but I saw this on sale so I figured I’d give it a shot! I haven’t tried this yet so I can’t recommend it, but I’ll make sure to let you guys know when I do.
- Kind Breakfast Bars: I ALWAYS get bars for my teaching days! I go straight from 8-4 with NO break in the middle so I quickly eat one of these babies in between lessons. This flavor wasn’t my favorite, but I’d be down to try some others.
- Annie’s Snack Packs: Another item I got with teaching in mind! I have a huge bag of unsalted nuts at home so I thought I’d toss these in with them for a fun chex-like snack.
- Fuji Apples: I’m not a HUGE fan of fruit TBH, but I eat it so I don’t get scurvy, haha! An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right?
- Berries: Ermergerd guys, the raspberries and blueberries I got were SOOOOO ridiculously sweet. Remember how I said I didn’t like fruit? Well I could eat these babies all day long. Target actually has great produce, and I’m really impressed.
- Stonyfield Organic Greek Yogurt: I love having yogurt parfaits for brekkie or snacks so this was a must for me.
- Kind Healthy Grains: Got these clusters for the parfaits mentioned above! Do you guys like yogurt? If yes, do you eat it plain or enjoy it with toppings?
- Oui Yoplait Yogurt: Don’t ask me why I purchased this, lol. It was on a whim TBH! I thought the jar looked cute, and I like sampling new things so I figured why not! Definitely go for the organic greek yogurt because I wasn’t a huge fan of this texture.
