One of the biggest misconceptions about working from home is that you have plenty of time to get things done during the day. Need to clean up? You’re home, no problem. Got errands to run? You don’t have to go into an office, just do it at lunch time. The reality is, working from home is the same as working in an office, except that you can run a meeting from your couch. Trust me when I say that an 8-hour work day is an 8-hour work day no matter where it’s happening. Over the last few years, I’ve learned a few tricks that help me to maximize my work days and actually get stuff done for the house at the same time. I recently discovered a new trick. Well, it’s actually a service. CVS Curbside Pickup!
My whole family knows how much I love CVS/pharmacy, so when my husband came home and told me about the new CVS Curbside Pickup, he wasn’t surprised that I already knew about it. He was surprised that I hadn’t already given it a try, though. I mean, it’s the ultimate time saver, and I’m always looking for ways to save time. I decided to give it a go the other day. The last few weeks have been incredibly busy. Even though I’ve (somehow) been able to keep the family fed, I hadn’t been able to refill some of the most important items our family purchases…my beauty supplies.
Isn’t it always the case, though? Moms needs get pushed to the back when things get crazy. The family is well taken care of and look great. The job is happy with our performance, and all of our colleagues and clients have what they need. In the meantime, the mamas are walking around with dry skin, chipped nail polish, and dehydrated hair. That doesn’t have to be the case anymore thanks to CVS Curbside Pickup!
How CVS Curbside Pickup Works
Here’s how CVS Curbside Pickup works. Place and order in the CVS Pharmacy® app. Even though I purchased beauty items, there are tons of items to choose from in other departments including Grocery, Household Goods, and more as well. When your order is ready for pickup, you’ll receive a text message. Just drive over to your local CVS/pharmacy, park in the curbside pickup spot, and your order will be brought right out to you. I was able to take Ayva with me, and she was already showered, in her jammies and ready for bed! CVS Curbside Pickup saved me time from having to go shopping during the day when I’m working, and is one of my new favorite errand hacks.
