Depending on how busy your lifestyle is becoming, you DO indeed have options.
Even the gets caught up in life every one in a while, and I become the busy person that I never cared to be.
People get sick, bills stack up for a lil while till you can pay them down or off. Work hours increase with responsibility sometimes being more laid on you.
Last year I started doing my own little experiment of getting a head start on my growing season by starting those little buggers inside the house! Making the good home purchase that I did (no gloat but gloat) I ended up with exactly what I wanted- plenty of room!
Rooms to be exact and a basement to match. Within that basement came the perfect space and outlets needed to do something I had thought about for years. Growing plants indoors.
For me, this didn’t work out exactly the way I wanted. If I could have controlled the humidity a bit more (increased constantly) then I might have had a chance to do more with it. However, in the end, it became an awesome starter room for all my plants.
Here’s the problem… If I was starving, a few seeds aint gonna put dinner on the table. And no big offense to Wal-Mart, but while I am there it becomes increasingly harder to check out what companies are carrying what. Local groceries fall under the same heading as a problem for me.
Not to be captain activist or anything, but I like to know where my products come from. If I am in a bigger store, I have to jump on my phone, google the brand, see what they are about and if that’s something I would enjoy.
I’m picky and hypocritical about my foods at times, but I am who I am. I like choices and I like information. I like options!
Most importantly, I like the time to be able to investigate the company I purchase from. I have two temporary solutions to my problems at this time. I have a local grocer and 3 stands that I pass (depending on season) that receive verifiable and awesome tasting foods: meats, veggies, and fruits.
Other than going to every single one of their farms, I am able to get some fine report on these individuals.
When it comes to a bigger choice, and something that can actually be brought to you in the situations I mentioned above about being busy… There are Wal-Marts that allow you the choice to look online and build your cart (as well as check the brands), and one that I’ve been interested in lately, AmazonFresh.
After going through the reviews, I’m not dissatisfied with the service. But before I push anything your way, let’s consider what will make it worth it to YOU (the awesome reader).
- Do you already use Amazon services?
2. Do you order enough to make it worth your while for the free delivery?
3. Not every brand you want will be there, is that okay?
4. Food will be showing up at your doorstep, will it be safe?
5. Are you ready to get rid of the garbage that comes with every order (cardboard, bags, etc)?
For me, #1 is fine. Prime is right up my alley. #2 I feed me, my wife, and family members and cook in large amounts to store at a time. Plus, it isn’t just food they deliver. #3 I can settle, for the most part. #4 Camera system, dogs, guns, and living in the country, should be fine. #5 I like near 3 county dumps/landfills on my way to and from work, so this isn’t a problem.
Well, sounds like I have myself sold at least. There are conveniences and inconveniences with every product you buy in life. It is best to weigh your options with any purchase.
If you are picky, BE PICKY! If you aren’t, then you have just that many more options. Take advantage of what benefits you and your limited time.
