I really liked the selection of tea and the choice of tea accessories, like teapots, beautiful serving pieces and gift items. Excellent resource for information about colors, origins, and types of tea.

Coffee For Less


It almost seems like coffee is the new wine. There’s stuff you have to know now about flavors and choices and blends. The old questions about whether or not the office should provide free coffee seems like old news. I read the other day that so many people go “out” for coffee now that home coffeemakers are either special machinery for cappachino and the like or they aren’t there at all! I can’t imagine life without the ol’ coffeepot that justs starts brewing regular black coffee at 5:50 am every day. But I can imagine how much easier life in the office will be when the person who has to keep the coffee supplies stocked discovers Coffee For Less. Great online shopping for home or office coffee. And if you have an expresso machine in your Lexus, you can get great blends to try while you’re schlepping from place to place. We know you love your coffee, so click and save CoffeeForLess.com

Nitro Pak

PeaPod

There are many tips and tricks for getting the most out of every busy day, but there’s one you might have dreamed about and then dismissed – get your groceries delivered. Think about the time savings: no more backtracking through the monster store to get the best deal or feeling guilty at the quick stop when you pay $1 more for something than it’s worth. Now think about how many times you handle EACH item. Once to put in the cart, once to get it on the belt. Now put it in the cart again and carry it to the car. Pick it up and get it in the back, drive it home and pick it up again to carry inside. You’re almost there – you only have to pick it up a minimum of 2 more times to actually use it!

My guess is that when you think about grocery delivery, you think of it as a luxury your grandmother wouldn’t approve. Here’s something to think about. In the days before TV ads convinced people that the perfect home had a woman standing inside with a mop and cleaner, keeping her shiny new appliances running, many homes took grocery delivery for granted.

Whether you manage your own home and household or pay someone else to do it, the time could be used most efficiently by having basic staples and supplies delivered. At the point of delivery you are so close to being ready to prepare a healthy meal, you might actually have the time and energy left to do it. Now let me tell you a little bit about PeaPod, a service that does just that.

PeaPod is available in areas across the country. You can select your grocery items and have them delivered for about $6.95. Depending on where you shop, that might be less than you’re paying for gas, not counting lost time. Your next question probably concerns the quality of what you’re choosing and having brought directly to your door.

PeaPod says they are picker than you when it comes to choosing groceries for your home. First, you control the ordering process, and second, they have no reason to bring you unsatisfactory food. PeaPod would like to keep you as a regular customer and the way to do that is to be more reliable than even your family members when it comes to running to the store for you.

I say for $6.95, you can afford to take a look. It might be the best timesaving tip you ever listened
to.
