    No way! $60 is crazy money. I’d rather just go shopping myself. : (10 votes)

    To me it depends on how comfortable you are with driving in the location and the currency. If you’re comfy with both then I’d just save the 60 and go shopping. Maybe buy some nice champagne with the extra 60, or order in one night. 

    Even though it’s a chore, sometimes it’s still fun to explore a new town.

    $60, is a lot of money in my mind, however,  if the grocery store is 20 minutes a way, that will be 40 minutes just in driving, plus factoring in the time it takes to grocery shop for a week. Then putting it all away, it might be worth it.

    On the other hand, you could take that $60 and put it towards a nice night out on your honeymoon. I guess I’m not much help as I tend to be cheap. Haha

    I suggest a compromise! Many grocery stores offer a shop online or curbside pickup for a small fee (much less than $60). That way, you don’t have to waste honeymoon time in a grocery store and all you have to do is put them away when you get there!

    If I were flying in, I would pay for the service. If I were driving in, I would stop at a grocery store on the way, and pack my cooler with refrigerated items, and pick up plenty of food, beer and wine for the week.

    Im super frugal, so there’s no way I’d pay $60 for that even if I had a spare grand to spend on my honeymoon.  I acutally dont mind grocery shopping on trips either and always shop based on what I feel like, and like to see if they have anythign different than what I might by at home to try.

    Yes, I would pay for it. I hate grocery shopping and the last thing I’d want to do is run errands on my honeymoon.

    Maybe I’m in the minority but I love grocery shopping with my husband.  We play grab ass in the aisles while brainstorming what’s for dinner.  Turns a chore into kind of a date.  I’m also not someone who would trust anyone else to pick out my produce.

    I’d probably pay it. It’s your honeymoon, relax and enjoy your week.

    I just want to say that this sounds so neat! Mind sharing where it is? Have been looking for this kind of romantic getaway for my husband and I! 🙂

    Maybe I’m wasteful, but I wouldn’t even think twice about doing this. Possibly because I’m an introvert & really like my down time. Stocked fridge with everything I want for the week… heck yeah!

    maybeee :  My thoughts exactly! My husband and I have fun when we go grocery shopping together and I like picking out my own vegetables and meat, especially if I’m doing the cooking. We are also particular about which brands we buy. In the grand scheme of things, I can’t imagine one shopping trip will take up that much time. Plus if you forget to pack anything, there’s your chance to grab it or anything else that may catch your eye, like a tasty dessert.

    I wouldn’t do it, but I also wouldn’t really be cooking on my honeymoon and would probably only be picking up things like yoghurt and fruit anyway so it seems more wasteful.
