An ‘Appy’ Sunday for a Happy Monday

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Sunday is the most awaited day of the week for most working women like me who get only one weekly off.  There is a lot of household and personal work which gets postponed till Sunday owing to hectic work schedules throughout the week. However, one does not always feel like stepping out of the house on that one day to get mundane work like grocery shopping or beauty rituals like waxing or pedicure done. But why stress when you can sit back, relax and let your smart phone do the job for you. Here are 5 apps that I swear by for making my Sunday a relaxed yet productive one

Big Basket

As much as I love visiting departmental stores and picking up things off the shelf, I hate standing in long queues at the billing counter. And it’s always so difficult to find a good parking spot near the departmental store. My life has become so much easier with Big Basket. I save my precious 3 hours on an off day by ordering in my weekly grocery staples, fruits and vegetables, personal hygiene essentials and so much more. Their delivery is almost always efficient and if you receive a product of bad quality, you can always get a refund.

Urban Clap

This app is revolutionary. One thing that I hate doing is going to the salon and wasting my time sitting in the waiting chair and reading useless magazines. Even if you take a prior appointment, at times you need to wait for your preferred beautician/ service person to get free. With urban clap, you can get outstanding salon services in the comfort of your home. Their beauticians are extremely professional and well mannered. Catering from 9 am to 9 pm,  their beauticians are always on time. It also gives you an option to reschedule your booking. You definitely must give this app a try and you won’t be disappointed. Additionally, they also have carpenter, electrician and plumber services available. The home cleaning option, however, is currently not available in Jaipur.


While cooking is a stress buster for me, I love to have at least one meal from outside on a Sunday.  And since I am all for pyjamas on Sundays, the best option is to just Swiggy some Hyderabadi Biryani or pizza and to devour it while lazing around in bed. And when them Monday Blues hit you on Sunday night, what’s better than a scoop of Belgian chocolate ice cream from your favourite ice cream store. Pro Tip: Get the Swiggy Super Pack to save on delivery charges, extra discounts  and free desserts/beverage with your food.

7 Minute Workout

It often happens that by the end of the off day, one starts feeling guilty for not really doing anything productive. Here’s how to change your mood in just 7 minutes! The 7 Minute Workout App is a great way to feel better about yourself and your day. The app gives some no equipment (only a chair and wall needed) exercises to get your endorphins going. So ditch the gym or your run for a day and make up for it with the 7 Minute Workout App.


Once you’re done getting the above luxuries delivered at your doorstep, a hassle that one always faces is to find the exact change for paying their bills. No need to knock your neighbour’s door or go to the nearby paan shop for getting  100 rupee notes.  Pay your bills using literally one tap with PayTM. Moreover, bill payments for phone, electricity, DTH can also be made through PayTM. So, just “PayTM karo!”
