Still No Milk or Eggs

Hi, I walked down to the convenience market today. 90° temperature and what feels like 1,000% humidity. I probably could have picked a better day but since I am stuck at home with little to do, it seemed like a good day to do it. The store clerk said I had to buy 3-2 liter bottles of Pepsi to get the discount.

Have you ever hauled 3-2 liter bottles and a half a gallon of milk home in the humidity? Zounds.

It made me more interested in finding, shall we say, alternative food sources. I went on line and discovered Walmart will deliver some things! They have specific items that are free shipping if your order is over $50. They also have something they call “value shipping”. Not sure what that is. The prices look very close to what they are charging in the store…at least before shipping.

Walmart, like Amazon, sells a plethora of things. Walmart even has milk that does not need to be refrigerated. There are no eggs for shipping, however. Not even the kind that you pour out of a carton.

If you still want eggs, many of the Walmart have people who will collect your order ahead of time for you. They will even come out and put it in the car. Easier to do that than to ask the neighbor to actually go in and do your shopping. You are also in charge of the money because you pay on line.

And speaking of money, today I also discovered it might be cheaper to pay shipping costs than to get a taxi to the store. Cab fare in this town I was told is $10 one way wherever you are going inside of town limits. Ouch. Hopefully it is cheaper in your town.

The taxi person I talked to suggested I follow-up on getting my disability transportation approved. I agreed!

For you? I would suggest if there is subsidized transportation available, apply for it. Even if you don’t need it now, you might need it tomorrow. Things had been going well with transportation for me…until today. It would have been good if the  subsidized transportation had been in place. Get things in place before you need it.

Some of you may have other options for grocery delivery in your area:
