THANKSGIVING ON YOUR DOORSTEP
Should we change up the tradition by going online?
November 17, 2016
Technology is always there to alleviate some of the stressful events in our lives, from correcting our essays to catching a Uber. It seems that it is a mundane task to get into our cars, go through traffic, go shopping, then go back home just to cook what we bought. Well, technology could help you save time and money on gas, especially when you are preparing for the grand Thanksgiving tradition. Thanksgiving shopping is one of the many holiday-oriented shopping sprees Americans participate in throughout the year. Amid the reunion of family at the table and the friendly rivalries of Thursday Night Football, the preparation of the food takes up most of our time. With online grocery retailers recently becoming a reality, it is nice that there is an efficient alternative than going to the local store.
HelloFresh: The subscription-based food delivery service is always changing up the game with their recipes that range from the Classic Meal ($69.00-$129.00), Veggie Meal ($59.00-$109.00), and Family Meal($79.95-$105.00) Plans. All the plans have free shipping, fresh ingredients, and serve for two or four adults, or two adults and two children. If you choose the Classic Plan, then you can select from six recipes that rotate weekly, and the cool part is you schedule your delivery, which in turn lets you choose from next week’s recipe catalog. But, wait there is more. If you subscribe to their newsletter, you get $15 off your delivery and you can cancel anytime. For more info, visit www.hellofresh.com
Publix: We all know and love the Green Grocery Giant that is Publix, the #1 grocery provider in Florida that generated in total $32.6 billion during the last fiscal year. Publix is known for being customer first, rather than profits. This is shown with their employees, the weekly BOGOs, and their recently established Greenwise® products. Publix usually has speciality prices based on holidays, so expect some deals for the Thanksgiving celebration.
