You’ve likely noticed that a lot of your grocery stores—from smaller markets to mega chains—have started offering delivery. If you live in New York City, ordering groceries may have been a regular activity for you for years (markets here can be so jam-packed that getting in and out with just a carton of milk may take an hour and a half). As for the rest of the country, you’re likely still in the habit of making an event out of grocery shopping. You set time aside for it, you schedule your day such that your groceries won’t have to sit in the car for too long, and you even put on makeup and do your hair to hit the market. You might even enjoy the tradition of grocery shopping! But, have an open mind: here are reasons it’s actually good for you to do your grocery shopping online.

You go into the store with the best intentions, but the moment you smell that baked goods section, you B-line it for the sheet cakes and the blueberry muffins. The smells of a grocery store are very powerful but at home you’re immune to their power.
