$100 in Free Groceries and Fresh Direct, Wherefore art Thou?

Jersey Bites will be doing its part to tame the economic anxiety attacks of, well, at least one lucky winner. More on that in a second.

I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people who has a really hard time planning dinners for the week. Circulars from my local grocery stores really fail to inspire me enough to sit and make a list and spend a good hour combing the isles. Plus I hate crowds, so most days I set my sights on getting in and getting out with what I need for that night’s dinner. Forget coupon clipping, I just do not have the time, patience or organizational skills for that. Now, if I had a service like Fresh Direct in my neighborhood (hint, hint big wigs at FD) I would be able to sit with a cup of coffee, recipe books and my laptop and do all my shopping sans the crowds and coupons. Heaven!

Where was Fresh Direct when my boys were babies? Can you imagine a service that would bring to your door all your favorite brands of baby food, formula and supplies for the diaper bag and the changing table, in bulk sizes even. No worrying about spit up on your shoulder or leaking nipples (sorry, it happens). Just make sure you’re decent when the doorbell rings. That’s it. Even I could have done that. I know the moms in my neck of the woods are swooning right now.

For the lucky folks in Jersey and New York who live in Fresh Direct territory, we are giving away a $100 gift certificate for Free Groceries courtesy of Fresh Direct. (Where is the justice in this, I ask?) Ah, well. Enjoy, you spoiled North Jersey / New Yorkers. I am not bitter. We clam diggers will have our day in the sun. Don’t you worry.

To enter to win, all you have to do is leave a comment about anything you think will make us laugh, cry or say Huh? and we’ll enter you into the drawing to win $100 worth of free groceries. Since you will need to use the certificate by October 30th, we’re going to run the sweepstakes until twelve midnight October 15th and will draw the lucky winner randomly through Random.org.

There are also some great coupon offers below as well. It just keeps on coming, doesn’t it?

So, while the rest of us wait for Fresh Direct to motor into our neighborhood, we can take advantage of their recipes and subscribe to their Parent Nutrition Newsletter on their website. (Whoopie). Actually, some really good stuff there, I must admit. Enjoy.
