Now this I love.
My language skills are improving for sure, I finally figured out how the delivery system works at the local grocery store. Here's the deal, you buy 75 Euros worth of groceries and they deliver it FREE!!!
I was getting some sick and tired of hauling groceries five days a week. On the boat, we used to do a major shop every now and then. I mean MAJOR, like nothing I've ever seen before. We'd have to buy perishables more often, but on the boat we would have enough food to last us at least a month comfortably, and three months eating beans and rice.
In TO, all that long time ago, we also had a large stock of beans and rice, and some canned goods; we did a major shop on the weekend, and stopped in for fruit or veg in the middle of the week.
Today, I bought 100 Euros worth of food. Twelve liters of long life milk, 8 cans of olives, I don't know how many cans of tuna, etc etc, etc....
The weird part was spending all that money and then going out the door empty-handed. They'll deliver around one, about when the man and the kids will all be home so hop-along gimpy-hip here will not even have to haul it up the stairs. I figure I can get them to deliver every other week, and we just have to buy bread, fruit and veg in between...and more easily too as we won't have to haul all that heavy stuff along with it.
How great is that.
I LOVE delivery.
