After staying at home for almost two years with the hybrid work set up, going back to the old routine could now seem drastic. Luckily, there are now more options on how to go about our daily lives, including handling work and household errands. Time is a precious commodity, and so here are some useful hacks to get things done so you can allot more time for the real important stuff:

Keep track of household items

We forget what needs to be bought and we end up having to run to the grocery several times. The best way to avoid forgetting things is to create an inventory. Make a list of everything that you have at home and how many there are. From toiletries to vegetables and meat, list everything down and every time someone uses an item from your list, subtract the amount so that when you have one left or it goes out, you will know that you need to restock it. You can also keep the list in your phone, so you will always have it with you.

Know the prices

Create a habit of checking prices. Some markets sell items at a lower price compared to other groceries, it may vary a few cents or pesos but you can save a lot if you keep track and know where to shop.

Take advantage of 'pabili' service

Once you have a complete list of what you need to buy, brand, variant, and even size, it makes it easier for the 'pabili' service to get exactly what you need.
 
Just recently, The Metro Stores relaunched Metro Pabili which is an improved and re-introduced service to help ease the lives of shoppers of all ages.

As one of the largest supermarket and department store chains in the country, The Metro Stores has made it its mission to think of ways to help ease the lives of their consumers by holding frequent sales and promotions, offering low prices, discounts and well-rounded selections at convenient locations.
