My Journey with Moving and Target Drive Up Pick Up

by Melodie Haas

Three months ago, I moved my dog and I back to Oklahoma City. I was really tired of the freezing winter, stairs to the basement, and not being in a city.

I retired from the Air Force at Tinker Air Force base, so I knew Oklahoma City pretty well. I thought I knew what I wanted but after being in the house for a month, I am not sure this is my last destination.

God increased my faith when I drove from Massachusetts to Oklahoma. I drove almost 24 hours straight through and my dog Jasmine was a champion!

God showed me He is with me and Has not abandoned me. Since I am so sick, I can’t work and that makes me feel abandoned a lot!

I really enjoy a few things in this house. One is my yard. It’s small and has an overhang so I can sit out there if I want to. However, there is a train that passes through a lot closer than I thought it was—and the crickets are a little crazy—so I don’t sit outside much. But that is ok, since I can look at my yard which is pretty.

The house is in close proximity to a lot of stores. Target Drive Up pick up has been life changing for me! I order online and then get notified thru my app. Then I go to the location where I ordered it and let them know I am there thru the app. Then they come and put it in the car!

I know I most likely pay more, but this convenience is priceless to me! I started doing this when I first came to Oklahoma City. The service is free! I have had to call a couple of times only because I lost the app notification. They keep updating the app to make it better!

Target.com right now does not have the option to select drive-up, so you have to do that through the feature on the app. So, I put everything in my cart then check out through the app on my phone. However, before you checkout, make sure you select drive up for everything you want.

I am also going to try Walmart delivery! If you live near a Walmart see if they have free delivery. They are supposed to start delivery sometime in October. Use the code HOMEFREE.
