Our grocery store is a little less than three-quarters of mile away. We always walk since it really doesn't make since to take the bus two stops. But when you load yourself down with 4 shopping bags, it feels like 40 miles! (Looks like I'm not cut out to backpack across Europe unless someone else carries my pack. Jared says I should buy an alpaca.) The first couple of times I was in the store, I noticed a few people with their suitcases, which I found quite strange. After further investigation these people became geniuses in my book, they were loading their purchases in their suitcases to roll home! Why didn't I think of that!
So I made use of the rolling cart I found in a closet in the flat. It didn't hold as much as I had hoped, and even when it was full (and super awkward) I still had to carry two of the bags by hand. However, I have since learned of a service that will change my life forever...or at least for the next year...grocery delivery!
I simply made a few clicks on the computer, gave them a few extra pounds and ta da, just like magic, our groceries were delivered! That's right, they just appeared right at my door. Everything was in perfect condition and better yet, I didn't have to leave my flat. Take a look!
