We all dread grocery shopping, but FairPrice Online is a website that seeks to help parents out with that.
1. A Lack Of Time

One of the most precious things that we have a limited amount to give out is time. It’s something that we’re placing a lot more value in, especially in our fast-paced Singaporean society!
The majority of us will work until 6pm every weekday, and once we’re done, we’ll grab our kids from childcare and then head home afterwards.
Depending on where your childcare is, you should reach home at around 7pm to 7:30pm. After that it’s usually dinnertime, then spending some quality time with your family, and finally heading to bed after that.
If our schedules are structured that way, the only time where we’ll be free to do grocery shopping is over the weekend!
FairPrice Online Solution: If only there was a way to help you save your precious time… oh wait, there is!
We all know about NTUC FairPrice; we’ve probably grown up alongside them and went shopping there with our parents when we were kids too. They, too, have changed and grown up alongside us as shopping with them now is not just limited to walking down to their outlets!
They’ve seen and understood the problems and issues that we parents are facing – time is important, and the more time we’re able to free up, the happier we’ll be!
Since weekends are usually the only times when we’re free to buy groceries, we can expect the same for other parents too! No matter what time we go to the supermarket, it’ll be insanely crowded, which means the queues to pay for our stuff will be pretty crazy too.
Long queues tie in to our first point, where we’re already fighting against time and are trying to maximise what little time we have to spend on other things that are more fruitful. Pretty sure that we can agree that spending around 10 – 15 minutes waiting in line with a trolley stuffed to the brim, and tired and cranky kids doesn’t sound that fruitful!
FairPrice Online Solution: No queues await you online, and you’ll be saving a ton of time and sanity when you don’t have to wait forever to pay for your items!
For those who stay within walking distance of a FairPrice outlet and choose not to use their home delivery, you can always do their Click & Collect option with orders totalling $29 and above, where you order the items online and choose your preferred date, time, and store to collect them at!
Cutting out 40 mins of grocery shopping per week means we’ll be saving slightly more than 2.5 hours per month. When you look at it for the whole year, it’s a whopping 32 hours! That’s more than an entire day!
