Instacart is cool if you have the patience for it. It’s a lot of work since you have to do all the shopping yourself. I don’t recommend doing any orders with more than 20–30 items. I once did a 150 item order for $60 bucks. It took me two and a half hours. I made some money but it was a huge headache. And on DoorDash never, ever, ever do Wal-mart orders. It takes way too long and more often than not you’ll wind up having to carry a 24-pack of water up 3 flights of stairs.

And Casey’s rocks by the way. Their pizza is the bomb.
