Staying in and away from as many people as possible is what our Nation needs right now to get through this COVID19 Pandemic, which has and is going to continue to change our lives drastically for the foreseeable future. We have resources available at our fingertips that not everyone is aware of, which can help you get through this quarantine period with ease.
Shipt is a private shopper app that allows users to place orders through their mobile devices, and receive delivery from many stores~ beyond the grocery store! CVS uses Shipt to deliver prescriptions, which are very easy to manage in the CVS App as well. We could be looking at a lengthy self quarantine time and with the rapidly changing situation, we may be looking at mandatory delivery so you may as well start now. Like semi-competitor Amazon Prime Now, Shipt costs users an annual membership fee of $99, but with this referral code, you'll save $50 on your first annual membership~ and I'll be rewarded $50! This App is one of my top used as a busy mother and entrepreneur and I've even used it to send groceries and other items to other people, which could be helpful for helping neighbors or loved ones far away.

• Yummy.com: This one is also great because you can get items delivered to you usually within 30 minutes and it's FREE delivery if you live in 90094. This mini market has a lot of essentials but their deli is fantastic! They can make fresh juices, sandwiches and have a rotisserie chicken that rivals Costco. If you know, you know!
