The more people you have in your house, the more going to the grocery store every week becomes a hassle. However, now most major retailers offer some form of grocery delivery, pickup, or both, and allow you to order what you need online. Here are a few reasons paying a little extra for groceries will streamline the way you shop.

You can stick to your list
Grocery stores are designed to spark impulse purchases; that’s just the way they work. By ordering groceries online, you can search for exactly what you need, meaning that you won’t encounter distractions like a pretty dessert display or deals on an item you don’t need (This is especially true if you’re ordering from Target). And since you’re buying less, you’ll save money.

It saves some serious time
Rather than traipse around the entire grocery store to grab what you need, you can compile everything from your desk, the carpool line, pretty much anywhere with a strong enough signal. That time you’re saving can go somewhere important, like your family, personal health, or any major task you need to complete. If you’re picking up, all you have to do is park in the allotted spot and let the store know you’re there.

It helps you stick to a budget
Perhaps the greatest (and sometimes, worst) takeaway from online shopping is that you can see how much your totaled purchases cost before you’re ready to check out. Every time an item is added to your cart, the service will clearly show how much you’re spending. This way, you can adjust your purchase and take out anything too costly before you ring everything up.
