While there are people who find grocery shopping therapeutic and fun, others see it as a tiring chore. But whether we like it or not, stocking our pantries with healthy staples and essential goods is necessary for every household, especially during the pandemic. We’ve been making fewer trips to the supermarket nowadays to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection. Luckily, modern technology has allowed us to add items to our digital cart directly from the couch while binging our favorite Netflix shows.
Many of us are new converts to online shopping because it’s so convenient and time-saving. With just a few clicks, you can have your morning cereals, toiletries, and dog food delivered to your doorstep. And you can even place your orders while cozied up in bed in your pajamas at any time of the day! You don’t have to worry about getting stuck in traffic jams or finding a parking space. You can look after the kids and catch up with work while waiting for your groceries to arrive in the comfort of your home. No more pushing your trolley from aisle to aisle to look for your specific baking needs or enduring long queues at a crowded store.
Others believe that this innovative shopping trend is here to stay even when the pandemic is over. But most importantly, it has played a pivotal role for many people in this era of social distancing and stay-at-home orders. Keeping ourselves and our family safe from the coronavirus has to be our priority in this global health crisis, so we continuously find ways to minimize our exposure to the outside world. Contactless deliveries or pick-ups are great options for consumers. With this virtual mode of shopping, there are also different payment methods that you can use like e-wallets and debit/credit cards if you prefer cashless transactions.
Another perk is saving money – shoppers can purchase products within their budget since they can keep track of the total bill on their screen. That way, they can easily remove the overpriced items from their shopping cart before checkout. Impulse buying or unnecessary spending can also be avoided as we will more likely stick to our grocery list without getting tempted to buy nice things from the physical store that we don’t need. We can even use special discounts and promo codes to cut down the final cost of our order. Plus, we don’t have to shell out money for gas and parking fees.
Note that we may have to pay extra for shipping or delivery fees and tips for the riders. But if we’ll be getting more quality time for family and rest or we’ll become more productive in our day jobs as well as in the kitchen, the small service charge is worth it. So if you’re currently in quarantine or you’re simply not in the mood to go to the supermarket, here are some of the top easy-to-navigate apps that will make your online grocery shopping a breeze!
