Ask me where my top three getaways are and I guarantee our family cabin up north will make the list every time. I got lucky and married into a century-old cabin in the Northwoods. Perks of being an Anderson! With each passing year, I’d like to think I get better and better at packing for our trip up north.
Cozy sweaters for the cool evenings, fun swimsuits, colorful floaties, strong sunscreen, lots of bug spray, propane for the grill and then… there’s the food. Since we invite a bunch of our friends to come along, food can be quite chaotic. What kind of meals will people like? How many people are gluten free? Do I need condiments? Will there be enough snacks? Do I have enough time to pickup a bottles of wine and a 24-pack on the way up north? The truth is, I don’t have the system down perfectly, at least not on my own.
I want to share with you one very simple hack for going to the cabin. It’s my build-your-own “Cabin Kit” method through CobornsDelivers which I think is the most efficient and convenient way to get ready for the Northwoods. CobornsDelivers is a lifesaver for busy bees and last-minute packers like myself. If you want to check out their delivery service, you can save right now using promo code: 10KLAKES.

WHAT IS COBORNSDELIVERS?
It’s basically a digital grocery store for people in the Twin Cities. A place where you can pick all of the food, beverages and essentials you need for the cabin, your home, your school, business, etc. Farm-fresh produce, the best meats, fresh baked goods and so many local products. They won me over when I found out CobornsDelivers also delivers wine, beer and liquor. Yaaas! You know I need my vino while fishing on the dock. You simply place your order online at CobornsDelivers.com or on the app. Then sit back, relax and wait for the order to arrive on the same day, next day or any other time. Ordering your favorite bourbon to sip on around the cabin campfire? Be sure to be home when the delivery comes so that you can show your ID.
Worried about the frozen or refrigerated foods? Have no fear. The groceries come in waterproof, insulated totes. Freezer items are kept cold with dry ice and refrigerated items come with blue ice gel packs. You can leave the food in those containers for hours with no worries. Plus, the drivers of the CobornsDelivers trucks are experienced, friendly deliverers!
Ultimately, I’m spending less time running errands and more time enjoying the cabin with my friends and family. I like to order my Cabin Kit list and have it delivered to my front door just before I get home from work. And when I get home, I can just grab the containers, stick them in my trunk and head on north!
CobornsDelivers is one of the best things I’ve discovered and I use it not only for cabin weekends, but for regular grocery deliveries for the home too. It’s just that good and convenient. Save time and get back to savoring those sweet summer moments with your friends and family at the cabin.
HERE’S WHAT I INCLUDED IN MY RECENT CABIN KIT:
Let’s Dish! Shredded Chicken Burrito Bowls (9 servings)
Becki’s Mediterranean Original Olive Salsa
Eichtens White Cheddar Cheese Curds
Coborn’s Signature Smoked Beef Sticks
Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP Caramel & Cheddar Popcorn Mix
Bi-Color Sweet Corn on the Cob (6 ears)
Personal Seedless Watermelon
Coborns Strawberry Rhubarb Pie
Bridgeman’s Vanilla Ice Cream

Wide Awake 100% Costa Rican Whole Bean Coffee
Wide Awake Sugar Free Coffee Creamer French Vanilla
Winehaven Rhubarb Wine
Fulton Lonely Blonde Ale
I’m definitely going to try more meal kits next time we’re at the cabin. The meal kits are also time-savers in the kitchen which means more time enjoying the food rather than cooking the food. You’ll see at the top, I chose the Chicken Burrito Bowls for my recent cabin trip. Next time, I want to try the Pesto Crusted Salmon or Risotto with Chicken and Asparagus and pair it with a nice local white wine like the Alexis Bailly Seyval Blanc White Table Wine.
I hope you’ll find creative ways to simplify your life to make the most of this precious summer. That’s exactly what I found in CobornsDelivers. I’m making it a goal to stress less about things like groceries and to-do lists — and focus more on all of the moments.
