Going to the grocery store has become something I never envisioned it would be: a major cause of stress and anxiety. It requires masks, gloves, lots of sanitizer, not to mention what we have to do once we get those groceries home. Lately, I’ve been looking for places that are going to make it a little easier for my family and I to get what we need. Thus begun the hunt for local stores offering curbside pickup and/or delivery. A big bonus for me was that many of these stores are offering some pretty cool boxes so you don’t have to do so much leg work!
