So I am the first to admit that while I love my husband so incredibly much and love sending him care packages to make him smile, I sometimes hate the tasks involved in the care package process. The tedious process of lugging packages to the post office customs forms, and mentally kicking and screaming my way through the grocery aisles and Walmart aisles, is enough to make me just vomit.

On our last deployment back in 2007 I realized alittle gem in the rough called Netgrocer where you can purchase grocery items as well as hygiene products from the comfort of the internet and have them shipped directly to your soldier overseas.

Some will say oh you can just go to your local Walmart or the commi and get the stuff cheaper and maybe your right, but when I add up the cost of gas ,the cost of shipping a large APO box ($12.50) and buying stuff for the box, I actually come out cheaper purchasing online.  I will be the first to say this isn’t my sole source of sending my husband care packages but it definitely is a life saver for those weeks when you might have slipped up in your normal care package sending regiment.

Netgrocer always has great coupon and shipping codes and their shipping actually has been cheaper. Here is a copy of my last order. Take a look at the shipping cost directly to the APO address.

5 Comments on Why I Love NetGrocer.com!!

  1. I didn’t even think of this! Next time we are on deployment, I’m definitely going to try this. Thanks for the tip. :)

  2. i have a question, its my first time sending a package to a loved one using netgrocer, i entered his FPO address on the delivery address section, and then followed all the steps, i entered my card info, etc… afterwards,when i clicked “continue without logging in” (the last step, where they charge your credit card instead of paypal) my address appeared on the shipping address info. i am confused. will the package be sent to me (since it appeared on the shipping section) or will it be sent to the delivery address? thank you for helping!

  3. Will this work for FPO? I know Netgrocer says they do, but it looks like they ship through FedEx. I’ve been told that only USPS gets picked up to go to the ship.
