Save Money and Eat Well

Fresh food

Like many people today, my little mother is 80 years old and unable to leave her house due to her age and vulnerability. I have had to come up with some creative way to shop for her, and in doing so discovered creative ways to save money and eat well.

All that said, I follow several “foodie” groups. One in particular that is right here in Ohio called NEO Foodies (Northeast Ohio). They talk about recipes, food, shopping and anything and everything about food.

One day someone posted a picture of beautiful, colorful vegetables and boasted that it was a vegetable delivery service. I clicked on the post and read the comments on food delivery services. People loved these services and some were local. I instantly thought, THAT is what I am going to get my mom, a box full of freshness, delivered to her door.

As I continued reading the comments, I discovered there were 3 companies that the NEO Foodies absolutely loved. I went to each of their websites and read about each one. I am not sure which one I will choose for my mom, but they each sound divine.
