10 Reasons to Try Milk & Eggs Grocery & Market Delivery Service
Let me start by saying I was the girl that always said "I will NEVER do a grocery delivery service... I love to pick out my own produce and find new products to try in the store"... that was until my weekly grocery routine became me spending my Sunday stopping at multiple stores. Talk about a pain in the a**!!! Throw in all the times I forgot my reusable bags at home, all the times I got stuck in the Trader Joe's parking garage because the parking validation system was down, and all the times I stopped at Ralph's to pick up bananas for my morning smoothies and all of them were super green or super brown! UGH! Insert Milk and Eggs to save the day! Check out my 10 reasons to try this incredible Los Angeles and Orange County delivery service ASAP!
Out of town and won't be back for the Sunday Farmer's Market? Working late, long hours on set or at the hospital? Not in the mood to fight traffic and crowds? NO WORRIES. Milk and Eggs is so easy and convenient! Most orders are fulfilled and delivered within 24 hours! My recent order was placed on a Sunday evening and arrived between 5am and 7am Tuesday morning. NOT BAD! Milk and Eggs also does not require a subscription but the option is there as well as the option to have recurring orders or just one-time purchases. There is also a space for special delivery instructions as well, in case you live in a gated, secure place!
2. DELIVERS A WIDE VARIETY OF ITEMS FRESH FROM GROCERY STORES, FARMS, AND MARKETS
Milk and Eggs provides you with products from all different types of diets including vegan, paleo, organic, Atkins, Whole 30, and many more. So much variety to choose from. The products come from the grocery store, produce fresh from the farms they are grown on, and all your favorite local items come straight from the local farmers market.
3. EARLY MORNING DELIVERY TIMES
As mentioned above at the moment the delivery times in Los Angeles are between 5AM and 7AM. Which I LOVE! My groceries are on my doorstep before I even hit the gym for my morning workout! Check grocery shopping off the list for today!
4. DELIVERIES KEPT FRESH
Stayed the night at a friend's the night before your groceries were going to be delivered...NO WORRIES! No need to speed home because Milk And Eggs makes sure anything that needs to be kept refrigerated is kept on ice packs to keep it from going bad. Your order will come in reusable bags and insulated reusable bags that the company asks you leave out when your next order is expected to arrive so that they can be re-used.
5. YOUR ONE STOP SHOP
Milk and Eggs has allowed me to get all my favorite brands in one place! Sure there will still be the Trader Joe's run for those seasonal goodies I can't resist but I would much rather have one store to go to than 4! Of course I still love to go to the farmer's market and enjoy that atmosphere every Sunday but there will be Sunday's I can't make it or maybe I don't want hummus until later in the week and want to have it fresh so then I turn to Milk and Eggs to help me out.
6. REASONABLE PRICES
At first I was skeptical to look into this service because I assumed the prices would be a rip off, considering most delivery services I feel slam you with over-priced items, a ton of fees, a shipping cost, and by then it would have been worth saving your money to just get your lazy butt in the car and go pick up your food! But I was wrong for making that assumption! The prices are EXTREMELY reasonable. In fact, most of the items I was interested in tended to be a tad bit cheaper on Milk and Eggs... especially the produce category. Many of the vegan items I ordered were same in price as Whole Foods. I noticed the almond milk I use was $1-1.50 more but no biggie... I was still able to get everything I needed within my $50 weekly budget... which may I mention I usually always go over because when I am in person at the store I see things and I'm like o I need to try that and OMG that looks good and look strawberries are on sale, and there is a limited edition flavor of something... and I end up totally over-buying. Milk and Eggs helped me stay in control of my shopping impulses and order exactly what I needed for the week.
7. FRESH PRODUCE
My biggest surprise when receiving my Milk and Eggs Delivery was the freshness of all my produce. I don't know why I was so shocked, I think because honestly I had friends who tried other delivery services who complained because they didn't like the way their produce looked when it arrived. My bananas were so fresh, along with my apples, sweet potatoes, and all my greens. And here is why. Milk and Eggs cuts out distribution centers completely and instead drives directly to the farm and gathers the goods themselves. In other words your produce is coming straight from the farm. How incredible! And just another reason why their prices stay low and reasonable. They have no middleman to pay and they don't have to pay a distribution center to store and keep the items fresh until they reach the place they are being delivered to. With that being said I will take a motto straight from their website: "Fresher foods=better health!"
8. FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS $35+
Does anyone go to the store and buy a weeks worth of every meal prepared and eaten at home for less than $35? I would be shocked if you said yes,considering I am the coupon queen and by the time I make all my stops and hit the market I am pretty close to $60 on my grocery shopping day. So bottom line... you would be spending that much anyways at the store, only this time someone does all the shopping and bagging for you!
9. REWARDS SYSTEM AND REFERRAL PROGRAM
Milk and Eggs also offers an extra incentive... a rewards program! For being so loyal to the company and service, Milk and Eggs will give you 1 point for every $1 spent. For every 100 points you accumulate you will have $1 to spend towards your order. Not only do you receive points for all the shopping you do, but the program also offers other ways to earn points very easily! See the chart below for all the ways you can make those points add up and go towards your next order!
10. NO MORE HASSLE
As I mentioned before Milk and Eggs has helped minimize my time spent running errands, has saved me money paying to park and for the reusable bags I almost always forget, has saved me time sitting in traffic just trying to get around to all my stores, and has eliminated all the extra stresses that come with going to the store in LA or OC!
HAPPY GROCERY SHOPPING...FROM HOME!
