I just did my first grocery order with Peapod, and let me tell you folks, it was amazing. I picked a two hour delivery window, and when the guy showed up, I buzzed him in and he rolled a dolly loaded with my groceries right to my door. My fridge and pantry are now stocked for the first time in months. The first order took a bit of work roaming through the various online "aisles," but next time I can pull up a list of what I've purchased in the past and just set quantities. How awesome is that? Delivery charges are reasonable (and justifiable if it saves me from eating out one or two meals). The produce is very good quality. I'm hooked!

[Imported comment* originally authored by renice.] I use FreshDirect like that in NYC. I sent a banquet to Jolie's office for a Friday lunch last year. It was such a pleasant experience for me: 1) shop online for a few minutes, 2) collect kudos. Ahhh... being a mom finally pays off ;)
