Spending quality time with family is important. Between running errands, grocery shopping and the remaining nine yards, doing so can be very difficult. This is especially true when you and your family really only have the weekends to spend time together and run errands. We know that although you may finish your job at 5 p.m., your evening really isn’t over until much later than that. If you include the time you spend commuting, going to the gym, making/eating dinner, and include any extracurricular activities your kids have going on, you may not have the chance to settle down until 9 p.m..
Some families schedule one evening a week for special family activities. You could have a family game night, movie night, or a dinner outing. You can even refer to our blog about “5 Things to do in Toronto” for more family fun ideas. First it’s great to identify the things that family members want to do together. Doing things that others want to do, sends a message of love. Your kids will never forget the one-on-one time you spend with them! The more time you spend together, the more you’re able to create memorable experiences. Innately, humans are social beings!
The reality is that people are working longer hours while some may have two jobs and work more than five days a week. So what does this mean for you and your family? It means that you have less time to spend together. We guess your next question may be how to maximize the amount of time you actually have with your family without spending the entire time fulfilling your “To Do” list.
The answer is simple; Shop online! If you think that we’re joking, we’re not!
Shopping online can save you a lot money and a ton of time, and we all know that. But really think about it! You can compare prices quickly between the different brands that the retailer carries or even amongst a retailers’ competition. You can read product features, benefits and read product reviews. You can turn to a various websites, forums and social media for testimonials and other information as well. You don’t need to use your energy walking through the various isles for groceries, fishing through all the pant sizes in clothing stores, nor do you have to waste any gas! What if you were able to shop for all of your items, spend 10 minutes to go pick them up and have everything you need for the next week?
