Though summer is often thought of as a time to kick back and chill, sometimes things get hectic during the warm weather months. When there’s lots to do on your work schedule, plus social commitments and travel plans, it’s totally understandable that basic to-dos get pushed aside. Trust, you’re not the only person who goes some weeks without exercising or, you know, even going to the grocery store.

Luckily, this is 2022. You can watch movies on demand, get professional manicures in the comfort of your own home and even have groceries delivered to your door. And with Instacart, you can even get 24/7 access to convenience store essentials like snacks, late-night treats and liquor (in some states). So whether you get home after a long day at work and have nothing to cook for dinner or a midnight hankering, you can have something good to you in as fast as 30 minutes via Instacart.

Most people know and love Instacart as a way to shop their favorite grocery stores without ever leaving the couch, but Instacart recently upped the ante by allowing customers in nearly every major U.S. city to shop convenience essentials 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You’ll need to spend at least $10 to have your order delivered, or you can pay a $4 fee for smaller orders. New customers can also get free delivery on their first orders of $10+. Non-Instacart+ members receive free delivery on Convenience orders under $35 with order minimum of $10. Instacart+ members receive waived priority fees on Convenience orders under $35 with order minimum of $10. You can learn more delivery charges here.

If you’ve never shopped through Instacart, then you should know they really do have a little bit of everything. From ready-to-eat foods and snacks and candy to personal care items and household essentials, you can easily get whatever you might need at any time of the day (or night) through Instacart.
