We live in one of the so-called “restaurant destination towns” in NJ, so we had been doing a lot of take out (I generally hate take out and would much rather go to a restaurant in person), since we can’t go in, might as well try to help them stay afloat. We’re spending as much money as ever, if not more, in restaurants around us.
We tried shop rite from home but found that the pickup, let alone delivery times weren’t plentiful. So one of us goes. Fortunately from my woodworking and diy tinkering on cars, I had some N95 masks (which we keep in a Tupperware container and reuse), and 5 mil gloves. Not enough to donate (I’m waiting for someone to try to shame me for wearing an N95 to the store).
I have a system to limit use of gloves - glove my right hand, keep left bare. Touch my stuff (phone, cc, etc) with left, public stuff (door handles, items in store, cc pin pad) with gloves hand. Limit exposure, go at off times, don’t go in if it looks too busy, support the little guy in less used stores.
We stocked up heavy at the start of this, so we’re generally OK. Lots of smaller shops, as well as some of the diners are selling food at reasonable prices.
For us, family of 5 with 3 teenagers, we go through a ton of food.
We found a few places around us that don't deliver but will do curbside pick-up and put the groceries in the trunk. We do that for most of our staples like milk and eggs and produce.
We also order restaurant deliveries about once a week, more than we normally do.
I also order meats and seafood delivered on line, just got in 15# of Cajun sausages and shrimp. I also go to our local seafood store occasionally when it is not crowded. I probably haven't gone to the grocery store on over 3 weeks.
I bought a bunch of flour and yeast ahead of time so I am making fresh bread a couple days a week as well.
And most importantly, we have a few liquor stores that also do curbside delivery!
