Shopping is one of my favourite things to do. I enjoy shopping in the malls when I get the time. There is something amazing about going from shop to shop, looking at the pieces and accessories in flesh. I do most of my shopping online these days, but when I have the opportunity to pop into a mall, I go for it. I recently came across the Fenetic Wellbeing website and I was on the website for some time.
I shop with my mum a lot. We both enjoy it and the kids love any activity with her around. Plus having an extra pair of hands with the twins whilst shopping is essential. It means I get to grab every item I planned to buy in peace, and not have to deal with the kiddies alone. It also means they get to spend time with their Nan, which is a win-win for us all.
Shopping with grandparents can sometimes be a bit of hassle for everyone involved. Especially when mobility is an issue. Which is why I am super excited to take part in this Fenetic Wellbeing Campaign. For those who have never heard of Fenetic Wellbeing, it is a mobility company who exist to provide customers with the right mobility products for their individual needs.
Spring time is here, which means it is finally time to spend my time outdoors. Which is why I am promoting ways elderly parents, grandparents and anyone with mobility needs can enjoy some stress free shopping.
Here are a few ways you can enjoy some stress free shopping with the grandparents this season –
Get a Mobility Scooter
If mobility is an issue, the best way to solve it is to get a good mobility scooter that would suit your needs. With a good mobility scooter, and buggies if needed, you are guaranteed to have a stress-free shopping session with the whole family happy.
Plan your day
I always like having a plan, so planning my shopping trip is important. I usually have a list of what I need to get so I don’t miss out any items. Also, I prefer large indoor shopping malls. Having all the shops under 1 roof makes it easier to move around and I don’t have to deal with the unpredictable British weather.
Go when it is quiet
I prefer shopping on weekdays in the morning when it is quiet. It is easier and quicker to move around when there are fewer people in the shops, so I target the quite times.
Make sure there are lifts available
Having lifts in the shopping malls are essential, especially with mobility scooters and buggies. I won’t bother shopping with the family in a mall with no lift.
Accessible friendly restaurants/cafes
We usually need a break midway into our shopping. Having accessible friendly restaurants/cafes available means it is easy to get in and out of a restaurant/cafe. So I make sure these are available before deciding on a shopping mall.
How do you achieve stress-free shopping?
