    I'd like to do my grocery shopping on-line but......I don't like produce and meat products at Walmart...the two local groceries that offer it are ridiculously priced.....My favorite grocery store(I've used it in 3 states) don't offer it.

    Same here, but delivery is $5 and then I usually tip the driver $5. It's worth it to me to collect the stuff from my front porch. :D

    I am trying the Walmart+ again, but we still usually drive by and pick up the groceries. However, it includes free shipping so there are some items that I have shipped that the store does not carry, or that are not food items.
    Sometimes, we have used instacart for our Sam’s Club orders, but they will not bring the blue cheese crumbles that Bobby likes because they have to find it in the deli section (at least that is what I think, because they always just say it is out of stock); so we still have to actually go to the store when we want the blue cheese.
    Since we have to go there for the cheese, we just do any other Sam’s shopping that we need to do when we are there. Sam’s does have free shipping, so I order things like dog food, and get that delivered with shipping.

    Here they charge about $20. We get a slot time for collection. It takes us about fifteen minutes there and back and we don’t even get out of the car, they load everything for you

    I purchase almost everything on-line now except my groceries. Just got a new razor today. I tried it out before posting new avatar....It does a good job but I need to look more closely in the mirror

    I get everything on line except food/feed and gas. But everything is not much. We don't really need much. I got a book from amazon today on near death experiences. Journey of Souls by Michael Newton.
    Dave gets milk and bread every Thursday.

    Didn't I hear about that book on a thread here? I think I checked it out. As Beth said, give us a report when you've read it.
