I Tried GrabMart, Where You Can Get Groceries in 60 Minutes or Less

I love going to the grocery. There’s just something soothing about walking along the aisles looking for a specific item or just wandering aimlessly. I used to stop by the supermarket after I hit the gym, which meant I’d be there three to four times a week. With the COVID-19 threat still looming and discouraging everyone from going out, it’s obvious that my “therapy” has been cut. I now rely on online sellers and food deliveries. I’ve only gone to the grocery twice since March, which means I rarely cook.

Recently, I discovered that Grab launched the GrabMart feature, which lets you get your groceries and other essentials in 60 minutes or less. If they exceed that time, the delivery fee will be waived on your next order. As someone who hasn’t gone to the grocery in a while, I was curious to try it.

Make Sure to Use ShopBack on 9.9 For Cashbacks!

Six months into the quarantine and I’ve gone out only four or five times. As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, I’ve relied on delivery and online sellers to sustain myself. Mostly, I count on online shopping apps to stock up on all kinds of essentials. I’ve bought all sorts of things online, from bigas to dog food, alcohol, a garment steamer, and more. Now that I’ve finished renovating my room, I will surely be counting on these apps to buy new decor.

Just how reliant am I on these online shopping apps? I received some reed diffusers while writing this story and I am waiting for a harness with a leash for my dog, two climbing racks to help my plants stay upright, and vitamins (I will be placing more orders tonight).

With 9.9 approaching, I’d like to make a recommendation to everyone adding items to their cart already. You can save money by using ShopBack, which lets you enjoy cashbacks on all your online shopping.

This Website Allows You to Buy From Your Favorite MSMEs Online

I can’t remember the last time I went out. I’ve been home for most of the quarantine since March and I’ve relied on deliveries, pasabuy, and online sellers for food and necessities. While I do miss going out, I’ve realized that you can actually sustain yourself while staying at home. After all, there are services now that allow you to buy from your favorite groceries. There are apps that let you deliver food from top and nearby restaurants.

There’s a new player in the market as the Association of Filipino Franchisers Inc. (AFFI) spearheaded a campaign called BUYanihan. It invites micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSME’s) to sell their products on one platform. It boosts MSMEs’ commercial viability by invoking the ancient Filipino tradition of helping one another.
