Is online grocery shopping always the best option?

Is online grocery shopping always the best option?

Online grocery shopping is a truly wonderful tool. I absolutely hate shopping for food, it’s boring, I often spend too much and it usually takes the offer of a free latte to drag me out of my car, after trying to squeeze Baby R out of his car seat because some moron has parked his child Audi saloon in the last free mother and child parking space (I’m sat in my car writing this and it’s honestly, actually happening as I type!) So I’m much happier sitting in the comfort of my own home, with my own mug, ordering our weekly shop and getting it delivered at a time that’s convenient to me. Ie, when Hubby’s home. This doesn’t always go as planned though, and if I find I’m being distracted by babies/children/Twitter then things may go amiss. By ‘things’ I mean, quantities. Lots and lots of quantities.


I only ordered 10 carrots!

If I’m looking a little orange in my Melfie next Monday. This is the reason why.

    Thank goodness I’m not the only one who does this. I accidentally got a £12 pork joint, we’ll be eating it for months! Looks like you could make a nice carrot cake!

    hehe! oh dear, its good to know I am not the only one who does this! I once ordered one single solitary new potato instead of the bag I thought I was ordering! #wickedwednesdays x

      Not a great deal you can do with 1 potato is there!

    I get too distracted with online shopping Sue to kids and I forget things. Plus shopping tends to be my child free time

    • 25th February 2015 / 3:43 pm

      If I could do it child free it might be easier, especially without a baby & shopping bags to wrestle in & out of the car!

    Haha this is hilarious. I am the opposite, I would mean to order a 1xpack of carrots and end up having 1 singular carrot turn up!! I have done that several times with parsnips and apples. Also I am terrible for clicking something and not checking size. I have ordered cartons of juice before only to find they are lunchbox size and my most recent one is a packet of flour- looked like it belonged in a toy kitchen haha!!!!

  8. 25th February 2015 / 2:00 pm

    haha I’ve done this before, have you got rabbits? lol x

    I’m weird, I love food shopping but I don’t drive so I have to get online delivery. I’m often amused by the things they choose to substitute with!

    • 25th February 2015 / 3:47 pm

      I live the subs, it’s amazing what they think of isnt it!

  10. 25th February 2015 / 7:34 pm

    Oh wow! I’m terrible with quantities and weights when I am ordering veg online. I need to see it to know whether I’m buying enough. I usually under order though so have to go out and get the right amount 🙂 #WickedWednesdays

  11. 25th February 2015 / 8:59 pm

    hahaha! I have done this before with onions! I thought they were single….Nope they were packs of 3! lol
    Carrot soup? lol x

    • 26th February 2015 / 7:33 am
