Recently I discovered a system here in Japan which allows people to “go shopping without leaving home”! It’s called 東都生協 (とうとせいきょう, touto seikyou), and it consists on a bunch of papers that come home once in a while and that are divided in catalogs and filling papers.
So basically people watch the catalog, write the number in the paper and send it. And then the people from this group will get everything and bring it home! Isn’t it awesome?
