With so many people starting to work from home, many are facing major changes to their usual routines. Others are taking the time to explore other ways to complete their weekly tasks that don't involve leaving the house, including shopping for groceries.

Target, for instance, allows shoppers to order their groceries online. You can choose to pick them up, either in-store or curbside, or to have them delivered directly to your home. You can place your orders directly into Target's mobile app, which is probably the best way for most people to go about the processes.

  • I may have to try the pickup idea. I have been very impressed with Target in the midst of our situation. Employees working their backsides off keeping the shelves stocked. Thank you Target!!
