Instacart announced that it is winding down its relationship with Whole Foods Market. This means that people who used Instacart at Whole Foods Markets are going to lose that service soon.

The first phase of Instacart’s transition away from Whole Foods Market has already begun. Instacart is scaling back their in-store shopper operations within Whole Foods locations.

Before this change, Instacart had 1,415 in-store shoppers across 76 Whole Foods locations. Out if this group, 243 Whole Foods locations will lose their Instacart in-store shoppers beginning on February 10, 2019. In the months that follow, Instacart will ramp down all remaining Whole Foods in-store shoppers.

Instacart can save you some time. The first thing you need to do is see if Instacart delivers in your area. Next, see if Instacart is partnered with your favorite grocery store. Those who currently use Instacart at Whole Foods Markets should see if they can find a different store that will continue to partner with Instacart.

Use the Instacart app to make your grocery list and schedule a delivery (or to schedule when you will pick up your groceries at the store). An Instacart personal shopper will do the shopping for you.

ALDI began teaming up with Instacart in November of 2018. There could be an ALDI near you! More than 90 percent of the brands ALDI carries are their own produces and exclusive brands.

ALDI tends to be less expensive than other grocery stores. They charge for grocery bags, so there is a chance that your Instacart order at ALDI will include a charge for the bags your groceries required.

Instacart has also partnered with Publix, Wegmans, HyVee, and ShopRite. Check the Instacart website to find out if there are any partner stores near you. Visit the Instacart Twitter account to see updates about additional grocery stores they have partnered with.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
