    Thumbs up Grocery Shopping Online.

    Well we gave it a go through woolworths and it was a $13 delivery fee.

    By the time i drive there and back,do the shopping, deal with trolley rage, car park rage,etc, etc it was $13 well spent.

    Old mate even trolleyed in all the groceries right to the kitchen.
    As our work hours are going to be full on soon and having 2 young kids i think we will be doing this nearly every week from now on.
    It also stops the missus spending coin on crap we dont need as she's a shocker for impulse buying.

    It's obviously not for everyone but if ya considering giving it a go i recommend it.

    When my knee was cactus, I used banana blue for a while.

    But I am a bit brand and useby specific and I'd have to remember to check the box for no substitutes, and then I'd miss out altogether - because I couldn't specify acceptable substitutes (ie don't like King Island cream but don't mind the double dollop etc, prefer bulla pure cream or tweedvale (lobethal Adelaide Hills) cream.

    So I thought that online shopping meant that I wouldn't have that problem where a significant number of the things on my list were not in the shop. In the actual shopping centre - I could go around the corner to the other supermarket and get the missing stuff. But with the online I couldn't.

    And sometimes they'd give me a perishable that had 1/4 the usual days before the useby date - and I can't eat it that fast.

    So if I'm paying $15 or so for delivery and they're not delivering everything I ordered and now I can walk ok - what's the point. I doubt I'd do any better at Woolies because most of the local brand stuff I want - they don't stock at all. So I usually walk out of there with very few items on my list. i think the worst day was one item in twenty!

    So the idea is great - and I'd pay - if they could deliver what I ordered.

    I do this fairly regularly. I hate the "big shop". Especially as our nearest Woolies is always so busy and I try to avoid it like the plague.

    I shop a lot at our local IGA though. Online, I'll order mostly non-perishables, and especially the heavy stuff, like 12 tins of dog food! Also cat food and cat litter, mineral water, toilet paper and that kind of stuff. I very rarely buy my fresh food that way though.

    I too love the fact that they deliver it to my kitchen. I usually pay about $9 for delivery, I think, it depends on the time window.

    If my supermarket was depending on me for tinned dog food or cat food or kitty litter - they'd be broke. And I'd be ok if they removed the chippy, soft drink and lollie isles. In fact if they stocked what I liked - the shop would look a lot different. There'd be no chewies or smokes either.

    Mostly I go for the milk, cheese, yogurt etc. Ie if I haven't run out of perishables - I also avoid the supermarket. I have learned - that Monday morning is a bad time to go - but Friday night - in the burbs is pretty good. And tuesday afternoon can be ok too. Pension day is bad. And in ACT - public service pay day was also bad - but I could and did shop there after 10pm ie on the way home from hockey training. I would shop on the way home from dog training on Wed night - but nothing is open.
