domestic help

for those of us who need all the help we get to run our homes...and if you arent the kind of person who has to cherry pick every tomato you slice, if you rely mostly on the vegetable racks in the supermarkets and if your bitter half groans at the thought of weekly vegetable buying chores, here's some good news. especially for those who live in hyderabad / secunderabad, here's an online service that delivers fresh vegetables to your door step. i have been using their service for the last 2 months. i have been disappointed only once with the quality of tomatoes (!) they are very receptive to feedback and immediately replaced them. Just login to getthebest.com they accept all credit and debit cards, you can also pay cash on delivery. there's a pretty wide range of vegetables and they're going to add fruit very soon. they deliver the same day if the order is placed before 4 pm, and they're not anal about leaving the vegetables with the chowkidar/ maids. you can leave instructions about where they can leave the stuff incase they come by and you arent at home!!

Ever since this helpful pamphlet landed in my hands one fateful sunday morning with the newspaper, i realised how easy it had just become!! also with a lot of supermarkets offering home delivery for groceries ordered either online or on the phone, i am so so happy. it curbs my spending to what i can list down, since i dont saunter down the aisles picking up rubbish that wasnt on my list to begin with. Not to mention the convenience. Of course, if you would rather do it yourself..... then by all mean!!

So the next time you are feeling lazy about going veggie shopping and are thinking of cooking rajma again!! just log on.... its really cool!!

I've ordered again today and hence thought of posting this... will update this with a picture of the vegetables as soon as they get delivered.
