Essential trips include the grocery. I had never used a pick-up option before, but now was a good time to start.

Kroger’s Clicklist (now thankfully renamed “Pickup’) had a learning curve, but surmountable. At this point in the timeline you had to schedule a week in advance. Substitutions were pretty common, but for the most part? The system worked.

Bonus? Having a bright clear day to drive across town.
