I buy provisions, milk etc. myself. As per fruits and vegetables, if it comes on the road and if it is good, I will buy. Otherwise I will go to market and buy them. What about you? Do you go out and buy them or order for home delivery?

Hi Buchi! We (me and my better half)go the market and purchase the groceries and goods of daily need ourselves. We don’t feel like ordering for groceries etc. We just want to check the quality before finally buying groceries. In case of fruits and vegetables also, we go the wholesale market every Saturday and buy our weekly stock for the next week. Have a nice day!

Hai dpk, it is interesting to go with spouse to the market and groceries shop together. We can consult each other and buy things.

That is really nice, reliance fresh is near your house. Some times we get good bargain in that shop and get for cheaper rates too. Reliance fresh is very far from my place and no one to take me in bike or car. So I do not go there. But I see the prices of that shop in the news paper. That is why I know about it. My sister also tells about the shop.

I do not think Reliance has home delivery facility. But you get for cheaper prices and they will give some offers also. Good, from now on you are learning to buy household things.

i myself buys our grocery so that i could check the label especially the expiration date, it's good to buy grocery by yourself because you can compare the prices of the item and you could also check new items available on the shelf.

Yes you are right. If we purchase ourselves, we can check the date and variety of the stuff and see about new arrivals.

My mother in law is incharge of buying vegetables and fruits and father in law takes care of groceries, milk etc. We, husband and wife, are working and supporting them financially. It is good in a way as I dont have to scratch my head to do house work also. But one fine day every responsibility will fall on my head and I may find it difficult to withstand it all of a sudden.
