Home delivery: what do you have delivered?

Hand push delivery cart Fairway Mkt

A few weeks ago, Lucy Waverman commented on Twitter that she still has home milk delivery and I realized that I haven’t had a milk man come to my door since I was about 10 years old.

Why not? We still use milk on a daily basis and I’m always running out to buy more.

What about you? Do you use home delivery grocery services like Grocery Gateway or do you reserve delivery for pizza night? Likewise, have your delivery habits changed in the last decade? Mine have. Where I used to have groceries delivered often, now about the only things we get delivered  are mail and an occasional Swiss Chalet dinner when life is too hectic to cook or shop.

The picture above, by the way, was taken a few years ago on a trip to New York City. I’m standing outside Farway market on Broadway and that little cart is one of many the store uses to deliver grocery orders around the the upper West Side.
