Since I like a good deal, I decided to order some toiletries and non perishable items and was able to select the time frame that I wanted my items to be delivered. I ordered around $50 worth of items and the total came out to around $37 which included a $5 tip.
Since I live in Houston, I doubted my 6-8pm time frame selected since that is usually the worst traffic time period but sure enough, they delivered them within that time frame and I didn’t have to go to the store to do my shopping. How nifty is that!
