HOW TO SHOP GROCERIES – THIS SAVED MY LIFE

SPEND YOUR TIME WITH PEOPLE THAT DON’T LET YOU GO GROCERY SHOPPING … THEY DO IT FOR YOU INSTEAD

I used to be that child that would love to accompany her mum to the market. I loved it not because of the treats that would come along the way but because I wanted to help my mum. If you live in Nigeria you already know how stressful it could be to go grocery shopping especially when you would be going with Mum. 

The haggling, the barrow pushers shouting ” uzo! Uzo!” ( Give way) , the thrift clothing sellers screaming , some ringing bells, the fruits seller pouring dirty water on the floor and an array of sorry! Sorry! That would follow suit.

The bright, hot sun that would be dehydrating you as mum keeps walking deeper into the market all in the bid to get a fairer price for the items on her list. Sometimes we get to the area where the goods are been off-loaded from the trucks, when you look down your feet are buried in thick mud over 3 inches high. And all you wish for is for rain not to come.  Then as we shop we would keep our things at strategic points, so that while we are leaving we would pick up our bags as we go along.

I feel so drained when we get home, but best believe you still have to take the groceries from the car into the house and probably assist Mum in the kitchen to set up dinner. This is an experience that I don’t wish to relive, not to talk of going to such place with my child on my back. Don’t misunderstand me, I can go and shop anywhere because I learnt from the very best but what if you had a GROCERY SHOPPER?

Since I moved to a new town its been quite a hustle for me to go grocery shopping. But I have been so blessed;  my friend Kelechi helps me do my shopping. Thanks girl I appreciate you!

Then the best part, my special delivery lady 😉 The grocery shopper port harcourt came into my life. This is how it happened.  I saw a broadcast in a Whatsapp group and I was intrigued by the prices of the items listed, so I decided to contact the number that was included in the Broadcast and I found out all the information I needed and she responded nicely too.

A MAN WITHOUT A SMILING FACE MUST NEVER OPEN A SHOP (Chinese proverb)

I am excited … if you live in Port Harcourt Nigeria and you aren’t shopping with her, you are missing out big time. Delivery costs just 1000 NGN. You cannot compare that to the sun, or the taxi driver’s insults or the long walk to different stalls.

Let’s take a look at the latest list she posted so you can get an idea of what her prices look like.

  1. Used it. LOVED It! Oh how I hate going to Borokiri market for dried fish and fresh seafood. Especially as I live around Eleme.. The other extreme end. This has been a lifesaver.. My menus have definitely become more varied.. it’s a good One!
