Membership fee: Instacart is free to use or you can pay $99 per year or $9.99 per month for Instacart Express

Delivery fee: $3.99 for same-day orders over $35 or free for Instacart Express members. Additional service fees apply.

Instacart—the original online grocery delivery service—allows you to order groceries from your local grocery stores (grocery stores have to opt-in) by pairing you up with a personal shopper. Same-day delivery can happen in just hours after you place an order or you can schedule a delivery for specific timeslots later in the day. If any item is ever out of stock, your shopper will message you to ask what you'd like to replace it with or if you just want a refund.

"I love Instacart because it helps me have a constant flow of perishable staples, thanks to the convenience that it offers. The shoppers always read my notes and follow through when I request bananas that are slightly underripe or avocados that aren't too mushy. I also love how shoppers communicate in real-time, making finding substitutions super simple," says Manaker.

"Hive is my go-to for pantry staples," says Manaker. "They curate items that are made with quality ingredients, so you don't have to question whether their items are loaded with junk. Plus, when you purchase an item, you get an alert letting you know which humanitarian cause your purchase is supporting. From combating hunger to fighting for a healthier planet, every cause included is one that is important to me," she says.

"Finally, their shipping methods are incredibly sustainable, helping support your planet even more. When I shop for food, I want to make sure the item is made with quality and sustainable ingredients, and the company making the item gives back in some way. Shopping at Hive saves me the effort of hunting down items that check all of these boxes," says Manaker.
