Shop Til You Drop Made Easy

Aug 18, 2007
Shopping can be such a horrible time of the day. Most people I know, including myself, shop either in the early morning after opening or in the evening to avoid the mad rush of people in the remaining time slots. Life doesn't need to be that difficult in the modern age. Computers and internet allow us to do any manner of shopping at any time we wish both day and night. For the working class, it's our saving grace to be able work through the day and shop when we actually do have free time and not on a rushed luch break.

Ever had those nights when you can't be bothered to go out and shop but you know if you don't you'll go hungry for lack of anything in the kitchen? That's when being able to shop online for exactly what you want is so useful. Loads of people come home from work an don't want to face the time and effort it will take to cook a well balanced meal for either themselves or their families. All forms of food and drink can be located online at your fingertips from pizza to microwave meals, ice cream to pasta and potato chips to dried fruit.

My mom wonders what the world is coming to with having meals made easy or even hot and quick delivered to your doorstep. Why can't you do things the old fashioned healthy way? That seems to be the repeated question uttered daily by people who have the energy at the end of the day to cook. I reply that I can get the old fashioned healthy way delivered to my door in 25 minutes any hour of the day I choose. Yeah I guess it costs more but the principle is the same - convenience. My grandmother used to make meals and save them away in the freezer. When they had overstayed their shelf life she would have to throw them out. I think the healthier choice lies in providing fresh food when it's needed and not in buying what you don't need to throw it away at a later date.

Having supermarkets online with online catalogues of inventory allows to to shop without interruption and see the availability of stock as you may not see it on store shelves. Placing orders for pickup is also key for those of us who are in a pinch for time or only do bigger shopping bi-weekly or once a month.
