Avoid busy grocery stores and impulse purchases

What if you did your weekly grocery shopping from home and didn’t spend your free time queuing up in a store? Having groceries delivered to your front door saves time for other things and you also avoid impulse purchases.


Savings: Ordering groceries for the whole week reduces food costs. In this case, you’re more likely to make systematic buying decisions and there is less temptation to make impulse purchases at home. The prices for home delivery vary depending on the service provider and they currently start at five euros.

Remember this: If you live in a rural area, home delivery services are more difficult to find. There are many grocery delivery options, but you may not know about them because the services are not very well known yet.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Having groceries delivered to your home once or twice decreases transport kilometres, which reduces your carbon footprint by around 1% per year. If a million Finns did this, it would save the equivalent of 12,000 carbon footprints per year.
