Grocery shopping with kids is one of the most stressful can be one of the most stressful experience for a mom of multiples. It can be a mammoth task getting the kids in and out of the supermarket with the groceries in one piece. Every week I have to plan my trip to the supermarket carefully to ensure that I need to take only one kid along for grocery shopping at any one time.
Bring along more then one kid along for grocery shopping and you will have to play referee as they kids will be fighting to be the one to push the shopping cart along the aisle. Giving them a trolley each to push is not an option as it will only lead to a trolley race off between the boys. Even though if only one of them gets to push the trolley you may still hear me shouting at them to be careful and not to steer their shopping trolley into other shoppers as they treat is like a racing car.
At times like that I wish that I have hands like an octopus, and eyes like a fly to make sure that all three kids are kept out of trouble.
Trust me it isn’t a pretty sight to see a trolley tipped over with groceries spilling out onto the floor as one of the boys had sent it spinning down a ramp just for the fun of it. It will certainly make you swear not to go grocery shopping again with the kids!!
These days we are lucky to be able to order groceries “safely ” from the comforts of our own home. No more supermarket disaster trips with the kids and I can have a stress free grocery shopping experience.

My User experience
Shopping with RedMart was really simple.
After creating an account for myself I just had to click to the different sections to see the variety of items that they had to offer. (They do have a large selection of products) If I wanted a particular item I just needed to click on the red button that shows “add to cart” and my selection would be taken note off. The website was really easy to navigate and within 20 minutes I was done with my purchases.
The prices are really competitive and comparable to the major supermarkets.
I compared the prices of certain items on the website and were surprised to see that they match the prices which I have been paying for the item when I go for my grocery run.
RedMart offers free delivery for purchases above $75.
This is really good as it can be extremely cumbersome to lug the heavy groceries bags home while at the same time carrying a 14kg heavy Tiger girl. Many a times I feel as if my arms are going to give way due to the excessive weight that I have to bear.
Within placing the order for my groceries it was promptly delivered on the selected day at the given timing. That’s a real thumbs up from me for good service. I’m certainly going to continue using their service now that I know how easy it is to go shopping without the kids 🙂
