{WIAW} instacart edition.

well, this should probably be called {WWEF} what we’ll eat friday! last night brittany had told me about instacart, a food delivery service (kind of like peapod) but they deliver same day and from a variety of stores, including whole foods!

while im a pretty devote peapod-er, figured id give it a whirl since she sent me a referral link that gave me $10 off and free delivery on my first order. i just got peapod on saturday, so didnt need much, but alli is coming over on friday before the ballet so i figured i should pick up some pre-show nibbles to go with our bubbly!

the site is very easy to navigate and i quickly added to the cart some cheese, olives, pepperoni and crackers. i was impressed to see that basically every item whole foods has in stores was on the website (not the case for peapod.) they also have a “add special request” button for items that you know are in store, but aren’t on the site. you just write a brief description and/or upload a picture so the shopper knows what they are looking for! if they have questions, they will call.

i think my FAVORITE part of instacart is their replacement screen. (i was so excited in fact, i forgot to screen shot it. so you get a random screen shot i found here.)

sometimes, peapod makes replacements i just can’t stand. i personally do not like plain chobani. (i don’t mind their flavored yogurts, but the plain tastes chalky.) theres nothing more disappointing than ordering two weeks worth of fage and opening the bag to find the cho! (ok, there are more disappointing things, but messing with my food does rank pretty high.)

instacart lets you chose what you want your replacement to be if your item is out of stock. REJOICE! (they also have an option to not to replace it at all.) LOVE. for the brie, i just chose a similar brie. but for the jarlsberg, i chose a cheddar. because why not?

also fabulous: they have a tracker. YAAAS. i love tracking my food. the dominos app is probably the most used app on my phone.

thanks for shopping for lazy ol’ me michaellllll.


before long, i got a text that my personal snack shopper michael was on his way!

IMG_1118he alerted me that the turkey pepperoni was out of stock, so they gave me my replacement option, regular pepperoni. (i was secretly hoping that happened. gimme the fatty stufffffff.)

seriously, the whole process was so easy! whats not going to be easy is not snacking on them before alli’s arrival. and considering vegas is a week away, and i gained like 75lbs over my birthday week, i really should not be eating cheese… but…

IMG_1112actually, today it will be easy- don’t feel very good. which is why im home, ordering cheese, and watching the painfully awkward movie the secret life of walter mitty. seriously, not sure im even going to be able to get through the whole thing, its that cringeworthy.

oh and incase you missed the link above- here is a referral link for you to use to try out instacart! http://inst.cr/t/zZjPso you’ll get $10 off your first order AND free delivery. if you say no to free food delivered to your door, im not sure we can be friends.

sigalso, i know this isn’t your standard {WIAW} post, but toast and tea isn’t all that interesting! but hey, at least now (if you live in a city instacart supports) you can order up some delicious eats to make up for the lack of them here, mmmmmmkay?

 and as always, thanks to jenn for hosting!

  1. WOW. I must try this out. Peapod seriously pisses me off too when they substitute or they just don’t show up with something. I’m like the reason I’m ordering from you is bc I live in NYC and it is impossible to find affordable groceries nor do I have the time to go get stuff lol this looks pretty cool though~
