Tired of Grocery Shopping
The Hope: “I wish I didn’t spend so much time going to the grocery store.”
The Stories: Ray knew he could save a lot of time if he didn’t have to go shopping so often. For Bobbie, it was more about sanity. Shopping every night with a two-year old in tow was driving her crazy!
KitchenSmart® Solutions: Planning ahead for mealtimes is a sure-fire way to minimize face time at the grocery store. Helping Bobbie get into this habit helped reduce her shopping trips from every day to once a week.
As importantly, for both her—and Ray—was setting up a pantry, a grocery shopping solution we don’t often thing of. Before they could set up a time-saving pantry, however, we had to make room for one. Unfortunately, their cupboards had become overrun with knick knacks, once-a-year serving dishes, garage tools, never-used cooking appliances and other what-not, to the point where they had no room for a few extra cans of tomatoes, a container of brown rice, and all the other staples that can minimize trips to the store. With just a couple hours of organizing time, we were able to create space for a sanity-saving pantry—and make the kitchen much more efficient to boot.
