My wife has ALZ and she can not be alone at home. We have part time caregivers during the week and this gives me limited time to go out shopping.
Gone are the days of running errands at the drop of a hat.
My solution so far is:
All manner of goods are available from Amazon.com. We have their prime shipping service so orders are delivered in two days six days a week. I price compare by checking stores that have web sites. For example I just received a case of soup, inkjet ink cartridges and repair parts for a kitchen faucet, and a pair of shoes. All with free delivery.
Prime comes from another family member.
There are two grocery stores that offer home delivery (with a charge)
There are commercial delivery services that will bring dinners from local restaurants. It is great to be able to look over menus on line.
There are a lot of pizza and Chinese restaurants which deliver.
My wife's clothing comes from Buck and Buck, LL Bean, and Amazon.
I monitor my activity using a free service from Mint.com. I see every credit card purchase and check deposit immediately and they offer product categories. I know how much we spent on depends or prescriptions, services etc.
How do you buy things you need if your stuck at home?
