As grocery-delivery apps gain popularity and take up more space in the app store, we don't go out and run errands nearly as often as we used to. From getting tampons delivered via Amazon Prime to having Chipotle delivered via Postmates for the third day in a row (hey, don't judge), there's virtually no reason to make pit stops anymore — not even for groceries — which is great news for those of us constantly on the go.

Even your favorite department stores have been jumping on the delivery app train. Just recently, Target announced same-day delivery in Birmington, Alabama, and South Florida. Once customers check out, employees called "Shipt shoppers" will visit the store, pay and deliver within a few hours. Nifty. After the initial launch of Target's same-day delivery in these two markets, the chain plans to offer Shipt's services at around half of its stores by the end of its first quarter.

As we eagerly await Target's full rollout, though, why not give the already-available grocery-delivery apps a try? Here's a breakdown of some of the best ones we found.
