Online Shopping with a DietitianPosted on September 11th, 2017
We heard you loud and clear Tulsa-area! You wanted online shopping and curb-side pickup, and you got it! If you haven’t heard, Reasor’s is now offering online shopping through our website and our *new* app with curbside pickup. Yes, that’s right- you don’t even have to enter a store to pick up your groceries!
I’m a childless (read: dog mom) millennial who lives absurdly close to multiple grocery stores- including two Reasor’s, but there are times when I am even too rushed, and don’t want to spend the time and energy to shop in-store. So, I decided to give our online shopping a go.
Check out my experience:
Make a List:
I never make a big grocery haul without a list. Meal planning for nutritious recipes means I’m more likely to stick to the planned meals, which saves me money and helps to ensure I stick to my health goals.
Here’s a peak at part of my shopping list for my online order:
Shopping Tip: I keep a grocery list in the notes section of my iphone that my husband and I keep on the share setting so we can both add to it as needed. We also keep the list divided into store sections to make shopping in-store more efficient. You can also make lists in the reasor’s app and share the list via email.
With online shopping, I found that without the visual enticement of walking the aisles, I was more inclined to stick to my list. Because let’s get real- impulse grocery purchases are rarely for healthy items!
This is me, ordering groceries from the comfort of my home- hooray! Also, please tell me how accurate the quote is. We’re trying to avoid that scenario.
Shopping Tip: Online shopping from home does not require pants, a shower, or interactions with the five people you’ll probably run into at the store- go ahead and let that sink in, introverts!
I called the store when I arrived, and they came out in a flash!
There you have it, folks: a play-by-play of my experience with online-shopping! We hope you are as pumped about this awesome new service as we are!
Check out one of the recipes I made from this grocery haul: Almond Falafel Crunch Bowl.
Reasor’s has also partnered with Shipt to deliver groceries right to your door!
