For as much as our family loves shopping locally, sometimes there are those few household needs we can’t find at our local hotspots. Plus the convenience of getting what I need in 1-2 days thanks to Amazon Prime puts a smile on this hard-working, multi-tasking momma’s face.
And when I saw Amazon announce that same-day shipping is now available in the greater Indianapolis area, I may have done a small backflip.
Say what? If I run out of toilet paper on one of those I-don’t-have-time-to-stop-and-shop days, I can order it and have it delivered to my house that evening? Yes, that’s exactly what Amazon Prime Same-Day Delivery offers. “My focus is on how we can lower prices, and what can we do to make the lives of Prime customers better.”Amazon Prime VP Greg Greeley recently told the folks at GeekWire. “They can run through their to-do list, and spend their afternoon on things other than running errands.” Okay sold Mr. Greeley.

More importantly, where in our Circle City is Same-Day shipping available? All of Indianapolis, Noblesville, Zionsville, Carmel, Brownsburg, Plainfield, Speedway, Fishers, Greenwood, Greenfield, Mooresville, Lawrence, Beech Grove, Franklin, and select parts of Westfield.
Sold yet? I am. Anything for less to-dos and more time to focus on the a-z of my family is worth it in my book.
