Cases of water can be ordered at Fresh Direct and even Amazon and Target. Probably Walmart too. No need to be lugging them from a cab.

I live in a 4 floor walk up, on the 4th floor, if I do a big food shopping, i double park the car, drop the bags in the lobby, lug the bags up, make more than one trip, run back down and then park the car somewhere, go back up and put the stuff away....
tiring?, yes.
can it be done?, yes...


same thing with home depot Lowes or places like that...
at least with an uber they drop you off and you dont have to look for parking, think of the ase of that....


i trust in my bldg, no one is going to steal my groceries....


but I rather do a neighborhood shopping and buy what i can carry.....
either or, it has been done the same anywhere and there i sno set procedure.


what might work for me, might not for you....

Okay, but is that cost effective? Don't the delivery people get pissed off? It seems like it would be a real hassle for them. Do you tip them?

If you had to make more than one trip, would your stuff be safe downstairs?

I would not know because I have not experienced it.

I bet you don't know everything about how to live where I currently live either.
Yeah but not one part of you thought, there must be some type of way? You came off like you expected apartment dwellers to make daily trips grocery shopping......how do you think food, furniture, appliances get to people in apartments?

This topic made me lol.

But, multiple trips is the way we do it.
Sucks for those that have no elevator. But is you have an elevator the crazy way to do it is to get a foldable beach wagon. the wheels are robust and the cart wont weigh down like the old metal shopping carts.
