Frequently Asked Questions

What is adulting?
A common term among millennials, adulting is acting like an adult by doing all of the things that adults are expected to do.
What are some adulting examples?
Examples of adulting may include great life changes, such as living on your own or getting and maintaining your first job.

Apps to Make Adulting Easier

So put the bottle of Two Buck Chuck back on the Trader Joe's shelf and pick up the Vivino Wine Scanner app. You'll get wine recommendations from a collection of 200,000 labels. You can also scan a label at the wine store or an entire wine list at a restaurant and get pricing, ratings, reviews, and even food-pairing options.

That's why you'll relish the Instacart app. Place your order from Whole Foods Market, Target, CVS, and other major retailers and get groceries, booze, and home goods delivered to your door in two hours or less.
