Avoid both buying the same items twice or not at all because of you either both went shopping (maybe even also one of the kids) or none of you did because you all thought the other one did.
A smartphone app that everyone in the family who does shopping for everyday items installs. There is one shopping list with two views – a shared one with all the items, and your list of the items you chose to do the shopping for. Each person can add a new item to the shopping list, or mark an item in one of two ways:
1. I am going to buy this today
So if you know that on your way home from work you are going to pick up milk and eggs, you mark them as “I’ll get this,” so others can see that it’s been taken care of and not plan on buying it too. When you bought the item, you mark it as “purchased.” You can also purchase an item someone else is going to if it’s not purchased yet, by “stealing it from them” and marking it as “I’ll get it.” In that case, the other person already planning on buying it will get an alert.
You want to but some new product (TV, computer, car, vacation, etc.) and don’t know where to start. There is so much information online, and a lot of it will prove a waste of time.
A personal shopping service, where you can choose a personal shopping assistant that is an expert in shopping for the type of product or service you want. You use a software that helps you have a video call with each other, and also share your computer screen. The assistant will go shopping with you together live online. He will help you get the best product with the features you need at the best price. He will first conduct an interview so he can understand exactly what you need, then you’ll both go shopping together online.
Have a much wider variety of products and the convenience of shopping anytime during your flight at your leisure.
A service that allows you to shop using the in-flight media system. Just choose what you want, and it will either wait for you where you pick up your luggage or have it shipped to any address.
When you need to buy a new product – a washing machine for instance – there are so many things you can compare, it’s hard to know which are the core, the most important, and why.
A series of guides, updated as the market and products change and develop, showing you what are the most important attributes that you need to concentrate on, when going to compare and buy a certain type of product.
It’s easy to find all the shops in the category that might stock the item you are looking for. But then you have to visit every store only to find out many don’t have the item you are looking for in stock at the moment.
Have an item based search app or website that allows you to browse at a much more granular level like “10 years old swim trunk.” It will show you all the items currently in stock, which shop you can get it and at what price.
