It happens every forgot something at the grocery store. But who wants to go back and fight these Thanksgiving crowds?

Our Smart Shopper team has a "Deal of the Day" to save you time and money.

Wouldn't it be nice if your fridge could go from empty to half full for just $5? And the best part is, you don't even have to leave the house!

Yes that's realistic because we have a Smart Shopper Deal of the Day with Instacart.

It's a one hour grocery delivery service and it's made its way to more than 20 zip codes in the Valley.

It's simple, just sign up and choose the store that you want groceries from, add your items and you can choose when you want it delivered. In fact, you can get it in as soon as an hour! (*Note:I noticed that some stores charge the same price in-store as they do when using Instacart, but others don’t but you’ll see that before you start shopping.)

We’ve used the service several times and were impressed each time.

For each order, all of our groceries arrived in good condition…eggs weren’t cracked and popsicles still frozen.

During our second order, the store didn’t have everything we needed but our Instacart shopper sent us a text and called to let us know and asked if we wanted something different.

It truly was like having a personal shopper and they also have an app.

Smart Shoppers, you can try this service out for a fantastic price.

Go online starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 23 and enter the promo code "smartshopper."

That code will get you $30 off and since you're a new customer you also get delivery free.

This deal is only valid for new customers, you must spend a minimum of $30, and you have until 11:59 p.m. (PST) Wednesday to get the deal.

So now you can relax, avoid the crowds and enjoy your $30 worth of free groceries!
