Online grocery shopping

Anyone else have trouble with online grocery ordering?
I spend at least 2 hours on the computer, making sure I check everything, but tonight the delivery arrives which I thought was booked for tomorrow and I have 2 tesco carrier bags full of carrots, a cupboard bulging with potatoes, weeny little jar of coffee!
In fairness it's a good shop for the money using mysupermarket, but how am I going to get through all those carrots? I don't even like carrots.
I do find I spend a considerable amount less doing it this way but it would be even less again if I didn't get it wrong all the time Image

i am sorry vicky, but i did find that funny.

i do order my groceries on line from time to time and its fine. i think its a matter of practise makes perfect.

two things that to me will be on the top of my list to have as i get older are, a downstairs loo and a computer to order my shopping.

give it another go, perhaps after christmas. i bet you will do better next time. x

I used to order online before we had a car. On the whole it was ok but I prefer to go to the supermarket as I wasn't particularly impressed with the substitution process if an item was out of stock.

We once ordered a bag of apples for the boys' lunch boxes and weren't too pleased to find that Tesco had substituted a bag of King Edwards in their place, and I'm sure the kids would agree that a raw potato at break isn't the same as a nice juicy Granny Smiths. Image

I've used online a few times but prefer to go to the supermarket. I have two (Morrison's and Waitrose) that are only a five minute drive from my home so it's not much of a bother. Plus, I am really fussy about meat and veg and would not want anyone making the selection for me.

... and, going to the supermarket is a reason for me to get out of the house and interact with other people.

I'm doing on line because I find it considerably cheaper even with the delivery charge, on a big economy drive at the moment.
I am a real sucker in the supermarket, they are laid out in such a way as to make you spend and I do Image
I haven't the willpower to turn left and miss GEORGE, Home and ware, CD's etc and then in the normal grocery section I am drawn to all the new products, could clean the entire street with the collection of fluids I squeeze into my cupboards, there are 2 cupboards in my kitchen that I know if I open them everything will fall out, crammed with stuff I don't use.
Also on line I can go check the freezer just to be sure because even with a list once I am in the supermarket I start to doubt that I checked properly and so buy just in case.
Hopeless case, aren't I?

The first time that I changed to shopping at Waitrose online I could not resist their wonderful range of cheeses but forgot to change the weight to grammes, I was shocked when I saw the total cost of the basket until I realised that I had bought a few hundred kilogrammes of cheese Image . I have ordered 1 kg of carrots and had one carrot delivered, not Waitrose, I have never been able to work out what the order picker thought that I intended to cook with just one carrot.
