I recently signed up for Walmart delivery, and it has been a life saver. Not only will they deliver to your door, but anything that has to be shipped gets free delivery.
I knew that with my hubby’s knee replacement surgery coming up, he would be unable to make trips to the grocery store, and grocery shopping takes a lot out of me. I always end up paying for it the next day, experiencing more pain and tiredness.
We just got my husband home today from the hospital - He’s doing very well! And, I’m really glad that I thought ahead and took care of the grocery issue! I am also blessed to be able to work from home, so I’ll be here to take care of him while he recovers.
Anyway, I was wondering if others on the site have the same difficulty with shopping. Blessings to you all!
This is how it is in my little world…
My shopping is pretty perfect, since it needs to be: I live between 2 organic food stores, takes 5’ to cycle to either, I go at times they’re pretty empty, get my roughly 15 products twice a week, mostly tons of veggies and 6 litres of almond or soy milk, in 10-20 minutes. To make sure I don’t blunder around I have a set list in the order of the store: always 10 veggies at the front (3-5kg), 6x “milk”, praps: bread, yogurt, gluten-free muesli. Anything else I get in bulk (or could do) when I have extra energy, like apple sauce, quinoa, aloe vera bottles and tons of nuts & dark chocolate. At the checkout I sort it by where they go in our flat, like 1 (cotton) bag for the fridge, 1 for muesli and “milk”, 2 for veggies. So I just put the few fridge things in it, the rest I can leave till my energy is up again.
My supps I get via online pharmacies & almost everything else used via eBay.
If I had to get my wife’s stuff more often I would organize it all similarly - but twice a week, not like her once.
The distances may be Germany for ya, but also the decision to live in a place where culture and shops are 10 mins. away, but nature is too. Similarly close to a train station, as I myself just cycle, don’t drive.
As my food mainly consists of 12 types of pure raw veggies, which I just chop up, it’s my restrictions that help save time and energy… and luckily I’ve learnt to love what I eat.
That made me tired just to read about it -LOL
Seriously, though, it is great that you live right by your fav stores!
Working takes everything out of me these days…
And your post just made me hungry - Headed to the kitchen!!!
