Re: Do you simplify your schedule and errands when you have more kids?

Ah. Peapod. How I have missed thee. I don't have grocery delivery here, but when I lived in areas that had it in the past, I totally used them. Primarily for the heavy stuff like beverages, cat litter, pantry items, etc and I would supplement the fresh items on my trips elsewhere. Although quite honestly I was never displeased with any produce or meat Peapod chose for me, just when they would be out of something and I wouldn't find out until the groceries arrived. When we lived in California years ago, there was a similar, more scaled down business called Pink Dot that would deliver basic groceries, diapers/baby food/formula, and takeout that we used a few times.

I am seriously considering starting a business when all three are in school next year just doing grocery errands for people since there is nothing like that here. I would just have my clients buy gift cards at the grocer they like, and just pay me for my gas/time.
