If you have a note you’d like to add to an item (for example, maybe you want to make a note on your bananas that you like them a little green), you can follow these steps.

Keep in mind that the notes you enter for items will carry over for future orders, so please be sure to review notes for items on new orders to make sure they’re still relevant.
