Do you get them delivered?
and have a sandwhich for dinner?
I don't anymore.
Stopped needing to buy so much food.
Big Red chewing gum
Possibly something else
More like a monthly mega shop based around non-perishables like cleaning stuff, tins, squash, OJ, and soya milk.
Sometimes do a it online. Sometimes not online. Depends.
if we had a fridge that wasn't the size of a microwave. :(
a month in advance?
those non-perishables i listed shoulda included pasta, rice, etc - they're all staples innit.
various veg and 'bits' get picked up at other times, depending on what's getting cooked.
is that it links your nectar card to it, so what i've bought that week OFFLINE, like tennents super and empire biscuits, appear in my ONLINE usuals. which unsettles me a bit.
I do our weekly shop online. in fact, it's probably being bought RIGHT NOW as it's due to be delivered at 6pm.
also weird when it says under your usuals that a punnet of plums is no longer available, and then suggests a punnet of plums as a replacement.
ALSO ALSO ALSO sometimes they completely delete food from the online shop liiiike... green lentils in water aaaaaand... alfalfa sprouts. and so i duly write in angrily threatening to take my custom elsewhere and am duly informed that the buyers make these decisions on an intelligent basis and then i am duly able to buy said products again 1 month later.
ALSO ALSO ALSO online shopping has given my unique insight into how much money i have wasted buying 1kg bag of carrots (etc etc name any product that you can either buy loose or pre-packaged). the way it unavoidably tells me how much something costs per kg in comparison to others is a bank balance saver

my comedy career ends here
I go shopping when there is no food left and with no list, panic buying anything at the end of an aisle that looks like a good deal and where the quantity of food purchased is usually dicatated by the level of hunger I feel at that exact moment in time.
tenner off for first three shops
totally recommend, plus not THAT much more pricey than tesco, and they give you free wine every week and champagne after 5 shops WOOWOO
Never used to, but tried it when I couldn't drive for a bit due to an injury. It's great. Saves wasting over an hour driving to and traipsing round Tesco every Sunday, which was what I was doing before.
IN AN ATTEMPT TO FIND MYSELF AND WRITE A WELL DEEP ALBUM*
so yeah, gonna be doing the online shop. Bit scared they'll bring me shitty veg and expensive alternatives to stuff that's sold out. what are the negatives of the online shop?
*not really i'm working on a panto in st andrews lololol
so much stuff comes near the sell by date by more than in the shop and sometimes the vegetables are over ripe. had many a sad bag of salad.
good dates, nice price matched alternatives and you can reject anything with a too close sellby
Ended up with MASSIVE cartons of orange juice (my wifes fault)
TINY bottles of water (my wifes fault)
No chicken (my fault)
No wine (Tesco's fault)
No yogurts (Tesco's fault)
All yellow bananas, instead of some yellow and some green for later in the week (Tesco's fault)
They came on time though and the man was nice.
Back to normal shopping next week. Look forward to the `do you do your food shopping instore?` thread next week.
