Sonja Kraljevic frequently speaks with clients about everything from the weather to their family histories. During these conversations, she often hears about challenges they are facing, as well. Over time, she has noticed that people often have similar needs and concerns, so she decided to start a new monthly column with simple suggestions based on the topics trending in the reception area of our Cleveland office.
A recent conversation with a client about the polar vortex made me stop and think. I found myself worrying about people who are stuck in their house because they can’t get out of their driveway or because they are afraid they may slip and fall on the ice. I mean, how would they get to the grocery store or to the drug store if they weren’t able to leave the house? The idea that some stores may still do home deliveries came to me. So, my suggestions are:
- Call your local neighborhood stores and ask if they make home deliveries – you may be pleasantly surprised. Or, check out these and other local grocery delivery services:
- PrestoFresh delivers groceries throughout Cuyahoga County for a fee of $7.95 to $9.95 per order, depending on the amount ordered.
- HelloFresh is a grocery subscription service offering free delivery. You select your recipes of interest and they deliver the ingredients on a weekly basis.
- Schwan’s offers a variety of flash frozen foods. They charge $1.75 for delivery and have an app for easy ordering.
- Do not hesitate to ask a family member or friend to help you out. I know many times people have said to me, “but I don’t want to be a bother.” My response is that you are not being a bother. Your family and friends care about you and I’m sure they will be more than happy to help you. All you have to do is ask.
Until we speak again,
