Grocery & Restaurants Pick up and Delivery Services
Here are some great choices for grocery pick up and delivery services available in Plano.
Aside from Picking up Curbside or getting Take-out Delivery, we are all cooking more, right?
Most delivery options from Big Box stores are super limited on delivery slots, so if you do manage to get a slot, book it asap and plan your shopping cart accordingly.

Don’t forget to tip your delivery person WELL!
But what about the BIG QUESTION: Sam’s or Costco? We do love both but know you may not want to have memberships for both. Here’s our take on it.
There is a great Groupon at the moment on a Sam’s Club membership if you’re not already a member.
Through Amazon, you can order from their warehouses. There is a $15 a month fee and a $10 fee if your order is under $40. Amazon Prime members can get the first month free! Fresh groceries delivered to your door! They also offer delivery from Whole Foods.

Cooking at Home?
Maybe you have a little more time for cooking family meals at the moment, could be a great time to try out a subscription box like Hello Fresh & Freshly as they are offering great discounts for first time customers.
The Meal Subscription boxes that are most recommended by Local Moms are:
- Hello Fresh
- Home Chef
Hello Fresh has easy-to-follow, well designed recipe cards you can keep and reuse, expect to spend about $60 per week with a variety of plans to choose from.
There is a great deal on Home Chef Meal Kit Delivery Boxes right now. We love the fact that they are ready in 30-minute meals, including steak, chicken, pork, fish and vegetarian recipes each week. You can select the number of servings based on family members and you’ll get a handy binder to keep your recipes together.
If you don’t want to cook, you don’t have to! Sign up with Freshly and they deliver a freshly prepared meal which is ready to eat within 3 minutes.
In addition to Meal-based subscription boxes, we have a ton of other subscriptions we love
Ordering from Restaurants for Delivery and Curbside Pick up
A lot of these restaurants are also offering grocery items and Quarantine packs, so there’s some great deals to be had while helping these businesses continue to pay their staff.
With grocery shopping, made a little more difficult, it’s a great time to make more of your food at home. This could mean menu planning, making sure you eat your leftovers and limiting waste. See how creative you can be!
I have been using my slow cooker and I even baked bread. The internet is a great place to look for recipes using the ingredients you have on hand.
Get the kids involved, design a menu, start growing a small herb and vegetable garden, enjoy this time together!
