Grocery Shopping Part 5, Shipped Meal/Meal Kit box

We have been exploring grocery shopping methods. I have described curbside pickup, delivery to your home from local stores, and groceries shipped to you.  The next logical topic is meal kit/chef ready meal subscriptions. The option is appealing: to have an easy, quick ready made meal or at least prepped at times. These meals must… Continue reading Grocery Shopping Part 5, Shipped Meal/Meal Kit box
