Yoghi | Online Stationary Kuwait (Update)

Yoghi is an online stationary website based in Kuwait. They ship to the GCC and the rest of the world, and their shipping rates are very reasonable. One of the items that I really like is Yoghi soft tissue, and it either come in a box of 1 or box of 5. I really like the quality of the tissue, but what I like most is the design of the package. People ask me all the time, where did you get that tissue box from. I have always liked well designed products, and this is definitely one of them.

Buying from Yoghi made our lives much easier at the company, where we no longer have to go to Mirqab and negotiate prices. It is 1 click away from purchasing whatever we need, and if we don’t find a product, we talk to the customer service using the live chat feature and we get whatever we ask for. I also don’t have to remember what I ordered in the past, I just lookup my order history and order the same stuff again.

My favorite part of the website is the search, because it is very fast and superior. I don’t have to leave the homepage and move from one page to the other. Even if I mis-spell a word, it finds the product instantly. The customer service of Yoghi is great, and they are very responsive.

 

Life is more convenient than ever where a lot of things is shifting online, and finally a place like Mirqab which I really hate to go to have an online substitute.

TONS | The Best Grocery App in Kuwait

TONS is the most innovative grocery app in the Middle East, and specifically Kuwait. Most of the time I don’t feel like driving to the supermarket, so I order everything online. Most of the apps and websites were very basic, and have a very limited selection of products. When TONS was released, it was a game changer, because they shoot their own high resolution pictures, and write down the nutrition facts of most of the products. There are 2 supermarkets as of now, which are Mishref and Shamiya, and more are joining soon.

The coolest feature in TONS app is the force touch where you can buy everything using one hand. To use the force touch feature, just choose a product and hold your finger until you see the sliding bar. When you push up, you increase the quantity of the product, and when you push down, you decrease the quantity. If you continue to push down, you can delete the product from the cart. This feature made shopping extremely simple, and I have never seen it in any other application in the market.


The most interesting thing is that their domain is www.tons.com which is a very rare domain to have since it is only 4 letters.

When you buy from TONS, they will assign a personal shopper to get all the products and groceries from the supermarket. They handpick the best groceries in the supermarket, but sometimes the groceries in the supermarket isn’t good quality. Overall, I really enjoy using the app, even though there is so much room for improvement.

 

 

The most beautiful thing is when I receive TONS bags and have my products and groceries inside them. The demand was very high for TONS that they sold out of all their bags, but more are coming soon.

Best Airbnb Apartments in Kuwait

I am a big fan of Airbnb rentals, because you find really nice properties at a really good price. I personally rent my homes in the US on Airbnb, the platform is extremely user-friendly and fun to use. Coming back to Kuwait, I realized that Airbnb isn’t that popular yet, and the apartments have the worst designs. Even the pictures of the apartments are terrible. The pictures seem as if they are taken with an old Nokia phone. Airbnb in Kuwait need some modern and luxury apartments for short-term rentals.
