My daughter was 3-years-old when I decided to get back to work. Initial days were very tough, and time was a big constraint. I had household chores to do, help her with her homework and obviously go to work. It was very difficult for me to manage all the tasks at the same time. One thing which I was finding the most difficult was to manage time. Everyday on my way back from office I would have to go to a fresh fruits and vegetables store, select the groceries, stand in a long queue and then finally be on my way back home through the horrible traffic. This would take up almost 2 hours and I would come back home feeling extremely tired and exhausted.
My daughter would be waiting eagerly for me to help her with her homework or spend some time just listening to her stories of what all she did in school that day, but I would feel just too tired. I did have a refrigerator but if I tried to stock up on fruits and vegetables, I somehow would find the freshness of fruits and vegetables not to be the same once I would take them out. The taste, texture, everything would just not be the same as they would be if I had brought them fresh from the market. So this was not an option for me at all.
So, life continued like this in the same way for the next few months until luckily for me, a close friend visited me soon, who too was a working mom. When I told her about my problems, especially in managing time, she looked quite surprised. She told me that she would buy fruits and vegetables only once a week and sometimes only once every 2 weeks cause everything stayed fresh in her refrigerator. I was actually amazed hearing this! I had no idea how it was possible cause in my case things were so different. She then told me that she had also faced the same issues previously until she brought home a Voltas Beko refrigerator, which made her life a lot easier by helping her save time.
Whatever she told made a lot of sense to me, because I was really not being able to give much time back at home after this super busy schedule. So next weekend I visited a Voltas Beko store, where I checked out the different models of Voltas Beko refrigerator and booked one according to my need. In a week’s time I realised this refrigerator had a technology much more superior to my previous brand. Fruits like papaya, mangoes would stay fresh tasting absolutely the same till a week.
Vegetables too stayed fresh for a week or 2, depending on the shelf life of the respective vegetables. For eg, tomatoes would stay fresh upto 3 weeks, carrots upto 2 weeks, while most greens would stay fresh upto a week. This was made possible because of the store fresh technology, which would help in maintaining the freshness of fruits and vegetables up to their maximum shelf life. Also their dual cooling technology ensured extra cooling which helped keep fruits and vegetables fresh for longer periods. One more feature which I found very useful is that the refrigerator helped maintain the right humidity levels inside the Crisper box because of which all vegetables looked and tasted fresh for days.
Thanks to Voltas Beko and their intuitive technology, my routine changed quite a bit! Instead of stopping on my way back to buy vegetables or fruits and standing in long queues, I could now conveniently plan grocery shopping on a weekend and take my daughter along with me. Instead of a chore, this now started looking like fun, because of the time I got to spend with my daughter. Also back at home, things were much better. Everyday I could now come back on time, which ensured I could spend the extra time with my daughter. I felt more relaxed and less tired. Time, efforts, everything was saved, thanks to Voltas Beko. But the best part of it all was, there was no compromise at all. Whenever I would take out the fruits and vegetables for cooking or eating, they smelled and tasted absolutely fresh. It was definitely a win-win situation for me.
It’s therefore my advice to all working moms to take the help of technology to reduce your time and stress. Instead spend that time with your kids or on yourself, which will help you feel more relaxed and stress free!
