ATTENTION: Do NOT make a list with Instacart, curbside pickup, or online ordering. Don't pay for anything in advance or add anything to a cart. You're just making a list as if you are going to shop at the store yourself. Download the actual Publix store app it shows in video, remember your login, and create your list on there. With your login details I can see your list from my phone. 

Please do your deli items (meats, cheese, platters, and subs) as it shows in the video that way I can just schedule it as an in-store pickup instead of waiting in the deli line.

Please don’t clip coupons. It messes up your list and I don’t do coupons anyways because I don’t charge markups. You will still get in store sales though! 

*Publix sales change Thursdays.

Item limit: 70 (flexible)
Water case limit: 2
Please go easy on heavy items I am only one person and most rentals have stairs. THANKS!

Please see services and rates above.

$25 reservation/delivery fee

Orders under $365 are 20% or more gratuity option.

You pay once I get to the register or upon arrival with cash, check, or Venmo. Please send the grocery total first and delivery fee as a second payment. I prefer to have the funds for your groceries before leaving the store as I pay with my own funds. If unable to due to travel it's okay you can pay once you are free. Though, I must always be paid in full before leaving your rental/home. You won't know how much your groceries cost or have to pay anything until I get to the register.
Please see the list creation tutorial above. You can download the Publix app and build your list on there then you just give me your login so I can see your detailed list from my phone. I don't need your list until 1 or 2 days before your order. Publix sales change on Thursday.
If you would like me to put your groceries up before check-in time please contact your rental agency for permission and a way for me to get in. If after check-in then I will just get access from you or meet you at your rental. 
You have 3 days to cancel before your delivery to be refunded the reservation fee of $25. For example if your reservation is on Saturday you have until the Wednesday before to cancel. The reservation fee is also used for the delivery fee of $25 so it won’t be refunded if I complete your order as it’s actually a prepay for the delivery fee. So the day of your order you’ve already paid the $25 delivery fee so you are just paying tip and stocking. 

If you cancel once I have started shopping it is an immediate $40 or $40 every hour I have shopped and you will not be refunded the $25 reservation fee. This includes curbside orders.

If you cancel once I have left the store you will be charged in full for a regular delivery or curbside delivery and not be refunded the reservation fee. I can't take items back to the store. Your items will be donated to someone who needs them.

If you cancel after I have shopped and stocked your rental you will be charged in full for a full-stock delivery and will not be refunded the reservation fee. I can't return your items. Items will be donated.

I know how much it would suck to pay for a service and groceries you won’t even use but still it’s my time and money I’ve used to pay for your goods so legal action will be taken if you don’t pay me. Not fun for anyone!

I can shop multiple stores on the same order. Every extra store is $5-$10.

Publix - Full-stock, regular delivery, and curbside. There is a 100 item limit for curbside. I don’t stock curbside orders only drop off.

$40 delivery

I deliver to everywhere local. Bradenton, Bradenton Beach, Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, Longboat Key, and some of Palmetto.

The service I provide is better all around! No markups on items, random fees, and ridiculous replacements. I communicate with you every step of the way and make sure you get exactly what you want to pay for. Unlike many Instacart workers, I pay attention to detail and always choose the best produce, meat, seafood, etc. because I take pride in my business and feel respected and blessed by the people I work with.

It's been a long-term dream of mine to do my own business full time. Every person I work for is one more person getting me closer to my dream and I want my appreciation to show in my work. I put the same amount of care into every order and I always make sure you have a positive experience.

Many Instacart and Shipt workers are being undervalued, underpaid, and don't have the time to really care. It's just about getting the job done. The support is horrible when you have a problem for customers AND workers, I believe they don't even have a phone number. You never know who is shopping for you next. Also, Instacart's app is being controlled by a computer and many times there are items on customers' list they never wanted, along with many other technical difficulties.

With Little Budgie, you're getting repeat, consistent great service with someone you know and trust! Thank you for supporting my small business! I appreciate you!
