Co-op Deli's Fun Finds...

We had our local Co-Op Deli man come by the other day with some catalogs for us. We're thinking of using the service in the winter months, since it would be nice for me not to have to bring two kids to the supermarket in bad weather and just have things delivered. As I was looking through their catalogs amongst the groceries and household goods, I found the interesting "gadgets" section. 



Mouth breather when you sleep? Well, you could invest in one of these trendy contraptions to put a halt to that...




I laughed at the duck clip for opened food bags initially...but now I think that it's actually kind of cute!






And hey - winter will be here before we know it, so why not purchase one of these fashionable hats to keep your head warm?





Has anyone used Co-Op Deli before for grocery delivery here? I'd love to get your opinions if you've used it (or thought about it) before!

After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along! I try to update my blog daily - and my husband also writes on City Cost as "genkidesuka"!

    Those are some awesome gadgets! I hadn't seen the duck before, but I do like it. The face mask though...I think 4000 yen is a bit much for what looks like a facial jockstrap. Still, maybe a fun weird Japanese stocking stuffer for the family back home. Hahaha.

    Lol!!! I've seen some classics over the years, but recently I only have our recurring order (mild and rice) delivered so I no longer flick through the magazines! I may start again just for the entertainment!! I did find Co-op really great when my eldest was diagnosed with some allergies as a baby. They were the only place at the time that had such a good choice of allergen free baby food. And after my 3rd was born I did my full shop with them too. It was really useful so that I didn't have to bring a newborn out to the shops with a 1 year old and 2 year old in tow! I used it again after my 4th was born, just to get a few things. I really don't have the use for it as much now as I only have my 4th at home now so its easier to go shopping. However, the reason I keep it, and a tip for you, is because you can buy discounted tickets for concerts, performances and even Disneyland. :-) It is the only place I know that sells discounted Disney tickets. The really good discounts are usually for "weekday only" during a given period, but the regular discounts are quite good too. Happy shopping. :-)

    @Saitama thank you so much for all the advice! That's a massive help. I have a two and a half year old and a five month old and we're in the heart of snow country now, so I think in the winters it will be a massive help not to have to bundle up two little ones to go to the shops! The part about the Disneyland discounts and other discounts is a nice added sweetener to the deal. And yes...I definitely think their magazines are worth a browse if only for a little chuckle here and there! :)

    @genkidesu definitely - I can't imagine navigating a grocery shop trip with kids in tow in the snow. :-o When you have a baby it is a Godsend. Another thing I loved when I used it regularly: I used to forget what sweet things I had ordered and when they arrived it was like getting a present!!
