Mom Hack of the Year - HEB Curbside Grocery Pickup
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of H-E-B Curbside. The opinions and text are all mine.
What would you do with an extra 3 hours a week? That's probably how much time it takes us to wrangle a toddler through a grocery store. After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is battle with Kai about what candies and cookies she wants to throw in our cart too. I recently saw the banner about the new curbside serivice at our local H-E-B and HAD to try it out! Today I'll be reviewing our experience, but spoiler alert: I think it's the single greatest idea since sliced bread! I honestly will never grocery shop the same way again!
If you aren't familiar with H‑E‑B Curbside Service, it is a magical unicorn that will seriously make your life as a busy mom much easier. Kai is notorious for wanting to be held through the entire store. She wants to sample every single piece of fruit the moment we walk through the door. I love her to death but going to the grocery store with her is pretty low on the list of things I want to do. With H‑E‑B Curbside Service, I can now simply order the things I want online for pick up in store. Place your order by 9 PM and get it as early as 7:30 AM the next day. Place your order by 9 AM today and pick up your order as early as 4:00 PM the same day! You can schedule pick up time in convenient 30 minute slots! The cost is $4.95 and totally worth your sanity!
I was curios about the fresh produce selection but the H‑E‑B Curbside website made it simple! All the items are organized in a convenient way and the search tool at the top made finding my favorite items so easy! I can also filter the list to show only organic items (major brownie points in my book). Frankly, the entire ordering process took maybe 15 minutes! I love that I can also save my grocery items for super easy re-ordering!
You know what we did with the extra 3 hours? We had a dance party! We put on some of Kai's favorite songs and had a blast goofing around. I honestly would not trade this precious time for anything!
When our H‑E‑B Personal Shopper started working on our worker, I received an email notification. We arrive at our local HEB during the scheduled time slot. All we had to do was text our parking spot number to the phone number indicated. Our H‑E‑B Personal Shopper came out within minutes. We never even unbuckled Kai's car seat! The amazing H‑E‑B Personal Shopper reviewed our order and loaded everything into our trunk and OFF WE WENT!
When we unloaded the groceries, I was impressed with the produce our Shopper picked for us! The bananas were a perfect shade of yellow, our avocados were firm but not too firm. It could not have been more perfect!
The H‑E‑B Curbside Service is a total game changer! It's fantastic for busy, working moms like me and fantastic for events where bulky items are needed. I cannot imagine anyone not benefiting from this service! Check out this nifty map for a store with H‑E‑B Curbside Service near you!
