InstaCart: The Best New Way to Grocery Shop

It’s an all-too familiar situation for most of us: after a long day at work you’re facing coming home to an empty stomach and and empty fridge. The grocery store sounds like the last place on Earth you’d want to go.

Enter InstaCart. Log on to the website or app and choose from three different stores: here in Los Angeles, our options are Whole Foods, Costco and Ralph’s.

Once you’ve selected the store you’d like to purchase from, you shop away! The costs of food items are set by InstaCart, and are comparable to in-store prices. The website is comprehensive and easy to navigate (thank goodness, since frustration and starvation often can lead to hanger).
