A few months
ago I started to see my Facebook feed fill up with busy moms talking about how
their life had been changed. Maybe you’ve heard of a little thing called Kroger
Yep, I jumped on the bandwagon and tried it. And they are right. It is a game
Kroger’s online shopping service. I so wish this had been available when my
kids were little. Even still, it’s super convenient for a busy mom like me.
account and log in to Kroger ClickList. Look for the closest store that offers
this service. It’s still pretty new, so stores are limited. My Kroger doesn’t
offer it yet so I drive a few miles south to the Kroger that does.
Purchases” is a great place to look around and start to understand how the site works. If you use a Kroger Plus shopping card it will pull up your recent
purchases. This is great for quickly adding your groceries that you pick up
simple type the items on your grocery list in the search bar and check out your
options. I love how you can quickly see the price of the items and also see
what’s on sale.
and I were raving about ClickList at work one day and my friend had some
great tips for me. She said she uses the comment field to be very specific on
what she wants – especially produce.
I took her
advice on my last order and made lots of notes such as:
“Around 3 lbs. It can be over or under up to .5 lb and multiple packages.”
shower poof please. If you don’t have, please remove from order.”
The only thing out of stock on my second order was a green shower pouf.
have completed your shopping you select your pickup time (one hour windows) and
click submit. You don’t pay until you pick up your order.
you an email confirmation and a reminder before you order is ready. You have
until midnight to make additions to your order.
Ok, so what
happens when you go to pick up your groceries?
find the signs that indicate where you’ll be picking up your groceries. You
park and then call the number on the sign. The Kroger employee will ask your
name and if you have any coupons. They ask which space you are parked in and
say they will be out as soon as they can.
ClickList twice and it did take about 10 minutes both times for them to come
out with my groceries. But I will gladly wait in my warm car rather than
spending an hour in the store which I really dislike doing.

Joy was the one who helped me the first time I tried out ClickList. I asked if they were going to offer
ClickList at more stores soon. She said she thinks they will have to because it’s so
popular. She said the day before they fulfilled 101 ClickList orders!

over my receipt and showed me the items that were out of stock. Gala apples
were on that list but she found them and put them with my order. When that
happens they are free ;) The other item that was out of stock was the Flat Iron
Steak but I think it was because I wasn’t specific about how much I wanted.
gave me $10 off $50 order! I’m not sure why, but I wasn’t complaining.
Joy typed my
credit card number into the tablet, had me sign and then loaded the bags into
my van. I checked the FAQs online beforehand and saw that the employees are not
allowed to accept tips.

does it cost? It’s just $4.95 per order. The fee is currently being waived for
your first three orders so you can try out this new service at no extra cost.
But I will gladly play 5 bucks for the convenience of this service!
tried Kroger Clicklist? What do you think?
