Here is a breakdown of the discounts I received:
$15 from a home mailer

The coupons I will be getting deducted are:

$1 off Cooked Perfect Meatballs
.50 off Mariani Product (doubled)

I was impressed with the quality of the produce that was delivered as well as the bread's expiration date being a week away. It was nice having everything delivered, especially since I also got a pretty good deal on the total order. I also now have free delivery for the next 60 days (they will deduct $6.95 from my order; the delivery fee for less than $100 is $9.95 and the delivery fee for over $100 is $6.95).

I really do feel like I saved even more money by just not having to go to the store because there were no impulse buys and no buying crap for the kids to keep them quiet while I shop. I also saved my sanity because at this point in my life I hate going to the grocery store; it is a necessary evil of being a stay at home mom so I tolerate it but dread always sets in when I sit down to make out my grocery list.

If you want to be lazy like me you can get $10 off of your first Peapod delivery (and then the above mentioned free delivery for 60 days after your first order).
