1) The Motorcycle: You probably don’t mind spending five minutes stuffing bags and strapping groceries to your motorcycle on a breezy summer evening in June. I bet you would mind spending five minutes outside doing this in the dead of winter when the temperature is well below freezing. That’s the situation I found myself in this week, so I started looking at ways of bringing home groceries that didn’t involve my motorcycle.
2) Public Transit: It may or may not be the most convenient. Most grocery stores are on along main roads with bus routes. If you’re lucky you’ll have a grocery store along your commute so that you can take public transit once in a while and pick up your groceries along the way.
3) Taxi: They’re very practical, if money is no object to you. With the money you save on car insurance you can hire over a dozen taxis a month, guilt-free.
4) Friends: If you’ve got a room mate or a neighbour you can piggy back off of, go for it. This can be mutually beneficial if you over to pick up a couple things for your driver in exchange for chauffeuring the both of you to and from the grocery store.
5) Shopping Online: You’ve heard of online shopping, but have you ever thought of buying your groceries online? They say necessity is the mother of invent, and I believe it. Buy the ticket, take the ride. Online shopping is super convenient. You can do it at 2 AM in your underwear while drinking beer, watching American Horror Story on Netflix, and working on a blog post all at the same time. Ask me how I know. I’ll tell you how I know.
