When it comes to grocery shopping, many people just say no to visiting supermarkets. The reason is that supermarkets require you to shop around and then wait for your turn at the checkout counter, which many people like to avoid.

The best alternative to going to the supermarket for grocery shopping is to place the order online using a mobile app and wait for the produce to be delivered at your doorstep from zero to a nominal fee.

If grocery shopping is nothing but a stressful task for you, the following tips are to your rescue:

  1. List your groceries

Your grocery shopping starts with preparing a list of items you’re looking forward to buying. In fact, never go for grocery shopping without preparing a list of items to purchase.

Deciding on what to put into your grocery cart seems a bit too difficult unless you buy the same items every time you go out for grocery shopping. Some people take enough stress when they need to prepare a meal.

Now, in order to reduce your meal-preparing and list-making stress, you should only pick groceries for only one recipe at a time, preferably one that you have never tried. Remember to keep things simple when it comes to life.

However, it doesn’t mean you eat the same things every day for your breakfast and lunch of the week. Whenever you need to go out shopping groceries, make sure to write down the names of every single item that you need in your kitchen.

Doing this will not only cut short the time you would spend the grocery store but also ensure that you buy them all at once.

  1. You don’t need perfect items on your grocery list

Whenever you go shopping at a super/hypermarket for groceries, you must have found multiple foods of a different kind, i.e. All Natural, Organic, 100% peanuts, no hydrogenated oils, etc. mentioned on different peanut butter jars. You must be thinking why the heck there are so many peanut butter types.

This is the primary reason why many people get confused when they go grocery shopping. They don’t understand which of the products (of the same category) to buy. To be true, you have to play a game called Choice Overload every time you visit a supermarket.

When it comes to choosing from different items of one kind, simply read the list of ingredients used to prepare the product. Never ignore the nutritional information like others. You must know what you’re going to eat.

  1. Grocery home delivery

Today, we have an option to do groceries shopping from home. In fact, various offline stores offer groceries home delivery at no additional cost. What you need to do is place your order on a phone call and wait for them to be delivered to you.

On the other hand, some offline stores allow you to place your groceries shopping order on a call and then you can go to the store and pick up the whole order at once. The best service is when you place your order for groceries through a mobile app and get the product delivered at your doorstep at a scheduled time.

This not only saves you time but also the energy that you can spend on other daily tasks.

  1. Get a shopping basket and not cart

While at a supermarket, have you ever noticed that they have a small number of shopping baskets and many shopping carts? This is because when you choose to pick a shopping cart, you end up buying more items than you planned to buy in the first place.

This is the reason why there is always a shortage of shopping baskets at these stores. Therefore, never opt for a shopping cart unless you need to shop for a whole month.

  1. Go shop at odd hours

One of the biggest reasons why people like to avoid shopping in supermarkets is that they simply want to cut down on checkout wait time. Shopping early in the morning or in the afternoon on weekends is the best for almost anyone, as it significantly reduces the time you would spend in rush hours, e.g. evening.


Since grocery sections in supermarkets are super busy on weekends as well as on after working hours on weekdays, you can choose the odd hours to go shopping. If you can go early on a weekend, you’re most likely to find an empty grocery store. Else, you can always choose to shop groceries online from your home.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
