I’m thankful for Harris Teeter Express.
If you know me already, you may be sick of hearing how obsessed I am with the new Harris Teeter Express. I’m convinced that this new service was made just for me. Both Wes and I have determined that the $4.95 fee actually saves us money. How is that? I usually have at least $4.95 in coupon savings, but mostly it saves me from the extra things I suddenly need once I’m inside HT. Eggs? Check. Bread? Check. Yummy cheese, new brand of yogurt, extra bottle of wine, gum, magazine, oreos…hey, they were on sale…
I am a planner. I like to plan out what I’m going to buy and what coupons I’m going to use. The planning usually takes up to an hour to do…then I still have to go get it and shop for it which can take an hour or longer (especially if I’m using coupons or if it’s senior discount day). But now I just make one list. When I’m done with the list, I just hit “order.” Right after I delete a few things to get my total down to what I want it to be, of course. Then I just pull up in front of Harris Teeter at the time I chose (you can order up to 6 days ahead) and someone loads them in the car and swipes my debit card. So far, I’ve spent less time and a lot less money grocery shopping. What has impressed me even more: I always get a phone call prior to my pickup time notifying me my order is ready early and asking if there is anything I forgot or would like to add! Harris Teeter did not pay me to say any of this, I promise. Give it a try and see for yourself. Thank you Harris Teeter.
Okay…on to other things. I’m guest blogging today about the Pinehurst Turkey Trot (a race sponsored by FirstHealth) over on sandhillsDig.com, so go check it out. Thank you awesome November weather.
Also, I’ve been meaning to post this photo of Rand and Jonathan. It was my favorite photo from our recent trip to the mountains. Not only is it a fun moment captured, but also wows me because I never would have imagined that my sweet friend from way back in the 5th grade would be holding my son one day. AND that our sons would be 1 week apart AND that his wife would become a great friend of mine too. Thank you Lord for old friends!
