One great thing that came about with the new normal is the convenience of shopping for our groceries online. Here are some tips so you can really maximize your budget and time on your next digital shopping journey with MetroMart – the #1 online grocery delivery service in the Philippines.

Make a list

Just like a physical trip to the store, go into the shopping platform with a plan, and stick to it. Try writing down all your meals for the coming week so you know all the ingredients you’ll need. If you come across something you like but can’t buy yet, don’t worry, just click the heart or like button and you can add it to your wishlist for later!

MetroMart

Save through sales

Try to schedule your checkout time when there’s a sale. These are usually during payday periods like the 15th and end of every month. Check out featured items on sale in MetroMart’s “Payday Specials” to score a big bargain. In this way, you not just save with your online shopping by foregoing the gasoline and transportation expenses, but you also get more savings on your groceries and essentials. 

Buy in bulk

4 tips to setup your home office for WFH success

One of the few bright spots in the midst of the global pandemic is the realization that we can work -productively and efficiently – at home.

The concept of Work-from-Home (or WFH) has been around for quite some time but it took the necessity for isolation and limited physical or social contact to make it as widely accepted as it is now.

Aside from ensuring your safety from infection by COVID-19, working from home has allowed you greater freedom and flexibility with your time, saved your the costs of travel, office wardrobe and lunches, as well as provided you with improved work-life balance, hasn’t it?

AllHome Home Officr
AllHome Home Officr

Hopefully, for many of us, WFH is here to stay.

However, this setup is not without some disadvantages, with discomforts and distractions being among the chief complaints among WFH setups.

The good news is that, with a little bit of forethought, these disadvantages can be minimized or eliminated.

Here are some rules of thumb in setting up your home office:

Define the space.

If, after two years of working from home, you haven’t set aside a defined and dedicated space for your home office, I laud your discipline (or pity you for the suffering you put yourself through).

A dedicated (ideally enclosed) area separate from the rest of the household to house your work equipment and provide you with a quiet space for concentration and work meetings will help you work a lot more effectively at home.

Illuminate.

Good lighting is something most people take for granted, but do remember that you need to be able to be able to read from your monitor or notebooks for hours on end. Dealing with glares or shadows while working not only makes it harder to focus on the tasks at hand, it may also cause eye fatigue and headaches, as accidents from momentary blindness as your eyes adjust to sudden changes in lighting conditions.

In these days of Zoom meetings, having enough light to illuminate your face (as opposed to being in shadow in a seemingly dark dungeon) goes a long towards coming across as professional to your colleagues.

If you can’t find a space with good indirect natural light, equip your space with overhead, task and ambient light sources to help your eyes as you do your various activities.

All Home Libis Store Tour

Take a (good) seat.

Your future self will thank you for investing in a good ergonomic chair today as it is designed to support your body as you work while considering your posture, comfort and health.

Sitting in the wrong kind of chair may cause pain in the neck, back and hip areas, as well as distractions due to discomforts caused by poor circulation and posture.

Get organized.

All you need to be able to work should be within easy reach but you also need to keep workspace spic-and-span to reduce distractions and improve your productivity.

This is why using smart storage solutions is a must. If floor space is limited, consider storing vertically through the use of stacking drawers, floating shelves, rolling carts or even pegboards.

So get to work on setting up your workspace. And you can get all you need for your home office at your nearest All Home branch.

Spruce up your outdoor areas to supplement your wellness goals at AllHome

Summer’s almost here and you know what that means: more time spent outdoors!

During pre-pandemic times, outdoor living spaces such as patios, decks and porches – were used mainly for entertainment and recreation.

International Casual Furnishings Association executive director Jackie Hirschhaut reported that in contrast to consumer behavior in early 2020 where outdoor spaces were being designed to complement homes and lifestyles, current trends indicate outdoor spaces are now being created to supplement that “supplement our sense of well-being and transform an outdoor area into an outdoor room.”

Clearly, outdoor areas are being used for purposes that promote physical, social and mental health.

These include:

  • Having a convenient place to get exposed to enough sunlight to boost vitamin D levels.
  • Providing opportunities for activities that promote eye health such as “screen breaks” – time away from gadgets – and viewing objects at a range of distances – for example, a nearby potted plant and a bird flying at a distance – to manage eyestrain.
  • Having adequate spaces for increased physical activity and movement.
  • Providing opportunities to meditate, be closer to nature to reduce stress.
  • Providing opportunities to spend time with friends and loved ones for fun shared experiences.

When designing or reorganizing your outdoor areas to support your wellness goals, keep the purpose of the spaces top of mind:

  • Exercise. If increasing physical activity is your objective, then consider the size, mobility and storage of fitness equipment that you will include in the space.
  • Socializing. Families and friends come together over good food so aside from your outdoor grill, consider the spaces needed for convenient food preparation, serving and dining. Including gathering points or conversation pieces such as bonfire pits or water features will also help in getting people to gather up and converse.
  • Relaxation and De-stressing. Nature has a way of bringing down stress levels so incorporate nature into your outdoor spaces through greenery, water features, wide open spaces and the materials of your furniture.

Answers to some questions you may have about IKEA PH (but haven’t gotten around to asking)

Here’s your definitive guide to shopping at IKEA’s PH store.

One of the buzz-worthy news items to come out in the midst of the pandemic is the opening of IKEA’s first branch in the MOA Complex in November 2021, just in time to cater to the metro’s for the Christmas rush.

While many home improvement buffs and shopaholics are set all abuzz with excitement at the news, other consumers may be saying, “IKEA who?”

Ikea Pasay
Ikea Pasay

For folks who may not have yet heard of IKEA, or may be unfamiliar with its unique shopping concept, here answers to questions you may have about it but haven’t gotten around to asking.

What is IKEA?

Back in 1943, Ingvar Kamprad founded IKEA in Smaland, a historic village whose stony and rugged terrain honed its inhabitants to be thrifty, innovative and possessing of a “no nonsense” approach to solving everyday problems, qualities which may explain IKEA’s way of doing business and its subsequent success.

Ikea Pasay

In 1951, the IKEA began operating as a mail-order catalogue business based in Almhult, a small, forested village in the Swedish countryside. It was at this time that Kamprad decided to sell good-quality furniture at low prices.

Since 2008, IKEA has been recognized as the largest furniture retailer in the world, with presence in Europe, Middle East, North Africa, East Asia, India, Southeast Asia, Oceania and North America.

In 2021, opened its largest store in the world right in our home turf, a 65,000 square meter outlet located in the Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City which houses over 8,000 items.

Why is it named IKEA?

IKEA is an acronym composed of the founder’s initials – “IK” for Ingmar Kamprad), and for places that hold special meaning such as “E” for Emtaryd, the farm he grew up in, and “A” for Agunnaryd, his hometown in Smaland, Sweden.

What makes the IKEA experience so unique?

Shopping at IKEA is sure to be a singular experience, with several factors coming together, such as:

A distinctive Scandinavian design.

IKEA’s furniture and housewares adhere to the Scandinavian design aesthetic which leans towards muted colors, decluttered spaces, use of natural lighting, wood accents, greenery and sleek, modern furniture.

Ikea Pasay

A one-way store layout.

Inside the store, customers are led through a counter-clockwise path that IKEA calls “the long natural way.” This path is designed to encourage customers to see the store (as well as its extensive product inventory) in its entirety, in contrast to the layout of traditional retail stores which allows customers to go straight to the section that contains their desired products. However, there are shortcuts to other sections along this path where more experienced shoppers can skip some areas and proceed directly to where they want to go.

The path starts by going through several showrooms where customers can look at or touch the furniture, taking note of product details indicated in the tags of those that catch their fancy. The customer then gets a cart and proceeds to then open-shelf market hall to pick out smaller items on display. Afterwards, they go on to the self-service furniture warehouse to collect the items they took a note of earlier in flat pack form (more on that later). Before they finally pay at one of the checkout counters, they will pass by the Circular Hub which is aimed at reducing wastage by offering previous display items or discontinued product lines at discounted prices.

Items not stocked inside the store may be collected in a separate customer service or warehouse section.

After checkout, shoppers may opt bring home their purchases by loading them to their vehicles, or make arrangements to have them delivered by IKEA’s delivery service.

Just in case buyer’s remorse rears its ugly head, shoppers have the next 365 days to return their purchases.

Experiential shopping through its showrooms.

The first IKEA showroom came about because of poor sales from the first mail catalogue, owing to the skepticism of the market regarding the quality of its products. Kamprad then decided to convert an old workshop in Almhult into a showroom. Here, customers can look at products, see how they can be tastefully arranged together and try them out prior to ordering.

Ikea Pasay

Today, showrooms comprise a significant portion of IKEA stores; these serve as experiential displays where customers may engage or interact with the products (even take pictures!) or find inspiration for their own home decor.

No to shopping while hungry.

Given its layout and the sheer number of items on display, shoppers can expect to spend a significant portion of their day at the IKEA store (some visits last as long as four hours!). Probably realizing the difficulty of dealing with hungry (or hangry!) customers, IKEA opened in-store self-service cafeterias serving a simple and affordable yet tasty menu of light Swedish fare, the most famous of which are the Swedish meatballs.

Customers can dine in these restaurants prior to entering the showrooms or after checkout, or may choose to take out the food to enjoy at home.

How is IKEA able to sell affordably priced furniture?

While many of us Pinoys aspire to have a well-appointed and tastefully furnished home, we may not have the budget to achieve it. Over the years of its operations, IKEA has made a name for itself as the place for high-quality, yet low-priced furniture through the following practices:

Ikea Pasay
Ikea Pasay
Ikea Pasay
Ikea Pasay

Designing that way.

According to a Business Insider article, IKEA determines what it wants to sell a product for, then designers work with suppliers to make that possible. Thus, IKEA products are of good quality but are priced affordably because they are designed that way. IKEA’s items are also manufactured in bulk, allowing the company to negotiate discounts in production and pass the savings on to customers.

Ikea Pasay
Ikea Pasay

Flat-packing.

Back during the days when it was a mail-order business, distributing or delivering bulky furniture was not just expensive, but also very difficult, oftentimes resulting in damaged products. In 1956, IKEA got the idea to remove the legs of its LOVET table, allowing the company to pack and ship the product in flat boxes. Doing so cost a lot less to store and transport, bringing about the practice of flat-packing.

Ikea Pasay
Ikea Pasay
Ikea Pasay

Some assembly required.

Flat-packing then led to the practice of self-assembly by customers. With the furniture packed with its parts disassembled, buyers are left to put these together themselves. While some people may not relish the thought of having to assemble their furniture, the handy-men (and -women!) would appreciate the opportunity to tinker around with their tools while producing something beautiful for their homes, as well as the savings this arrangement brings to them.

Think self-assembly is not for you? You may opt to avail of IKEA’s Assembly Service if you’re willing to part with a few more bucks.

Ikea Pasay

The all-important tag.

In IKEA, you won’t find a lot of store associates following you around to answer questions you may have about the store’s wares. Instead, all important information, aside from the price, are provided in the product tags such as the product’s size, color, material, measurements, features, whether you would need to be assisted by a store staff to purchase the item and most importantly, its location in the warehouse, allowing you to locate and collect the item before checkout.

The tag empowers a lot of the self-service among customers while in the store, allowing the company to hire fewer people and, again, pass the savings on to customers.

Can I shop for IKEA items online?

If the idea of braving the metro’s traffic and the crowds while shopping does not appeal to you, fear not: you have the option to shop online.

At its website, shoppers can select the items they wish to purchase according to room, category, series or collection; add these to their cart for checkout or, if out stock or available only in-store, save them to a shopping list to serve as their guide when they visit the physical store.

IKEA

Online shoppers may also opt to Click and Collect, wherein they can buy online and pick up their purchases at nearby designated locations, saving them the long commute, the trek through the various store displays and the effort of locating their purchases in the self-serve warehouse.

Customers may also download the IKEA Mobile App for more convenient online shopping using their mobile devices.

Where is its Philippine store located?

Shopping at IKEA’s brick and mortar store is an experience not to be missed, as its various showrooms and displays welcome customers to try, touch and feel its products.

IKEA

You can visit IKEA Pasay at the MOA Square, Marina Way, Mall of Asia Complex, Barangay 76 Zone 10, CBP-IA, 1300 Pasay City, open daily from 10am to 10pm.

In accordance to COVID-19 safety guidelines, all customers are encouraged to practice physical distancing and wear face masks while inside store premises. As only vaccinated individuals are allowed inside, proof of vaccination status is required upon entry.

With this guide to shopping at IKEA, I hope you’re all set for your visit to its Philippine store. Let me know how it goes!

Home accents from AllHome to liven up your spaces

Do you sometimes feel reluctant to bring visitors to your home, thinking that they’ll find your place too blah?

When you leaf through lifestyle magazines, do you find yourself wishing your home is as full of pizzazz as those featured in those pages?

While large furniture pieces may be hard to get rid of or replace, you can easily add a home accessory to your space that will totally change its look.

Why accessorize your home?

Similar to how, in fashion, the right accessories add personality to a whole outfit, the right home accents can imbue your spaces with your own style and uniqueness.

Accent pieces can impart a seasonal feel to your decor. By choosing accessories that embody the time of the year, you can bring the changing seasons to your home.

Are you ready to accessorize your home? Here are some sensible rules of thumb to guide your selections:

  • Go for quality over quantity. You don’t need to fill your spaces with as many bric-a-bracs as you can get your hands on. Just go for a few choice pieces that will impart style and uniqueness to your area.
  • Go for pops of color and interesting changes in texture. Accent pieces should add visual interest to the room by providing contrast from large and neutral-colored pieces of furniture.
  • Consider how the pieces fit into the room and with each other. Consider the proportion and scale of the pieces against the space: miniscule figurines in large mantel may just appear like clutter and a large piece of artwork will crowd a small room. To get a feel of how to arrange your accessories, start with the one or two larger pieces (use such items sparingly), then add small ones to fill in the space or achieve balance.

Top Picks from AllHome

The good news is that you won’t have to travel far to get good selections of home accessories: simply drop by your nearest AllHome outlet or shop online at allhome.com.ph.

Get your groceries from SM markets within an hour via GrabMart

During pre-pandemic times, my go-to for groceries was, of course, SM Markets. Aside from having a store just a stone’s throw away from my house, SM Markets also houses a wide range of grocery products: from fresh and frozen food, snack items, canned goods, personal hygiene and sanitary products, as well as cleaning and houseware goods.

However, the restrictions on mall entry, shortened mall hours and the need to maintain physical distancing resulted into longer lines and longer waiting lines at my local SM Market.

Well, that’s no longer a problem with GrabMart’s partnership with SM Markets which enables users of the Grab app to place orders from selected SM markets via the app- including SM Supermarket, Hypermarket, and Savemore- and receive their orders at home in just an hour.

For a mom like me who manages a full household but has many demands on her time, the combination of SM Markets’ wide variety of products and Grab’s fast delivery times is a great time saver and takes the worrying over how to acquire my family’s grocery needs off my plate.

And here’s another reason to shop at SM Markets via GrabMart: With a minimum order of just Php1200 from any SM Markets branch on GrabMart, groceries delivery is FREE with code SMFREEDEL! Shoppers can save even more  by getting Php300 off with a minimum order of Php2500 with the code SM300! 

Now, mommies can rest easy knowing that their grocery requirements are readily accessible just by opening the Grab app.

Aside from this new amazing partnership, SM and Grab also joined hands to promote safe shopping inside SM Malls. This include allowing users of Grab’s in-app wallet GrabPay to top up their accounts at SM Supermalls. 

For more details on how Grab facilitates life in our New Normal, visit Grab on Facebook.
