    Well done indeed saving money is always a good idea.

    I (as a male person) have a theory about this shopping thing.

    When a female visits the supermarket I believe they do not go shopping they go hunting.

    Let me explain why and this is in no way meant to be derogatory to the female.

    It would appear to me that a woman often looks at supermarket shopping as a day out type of event and seems to enjoy her visit. OK, there are a few who don't I know that.

    I see them walk the isles looking at the items on the shelves and loading the trolley as they move from isle to isle.

    Most times they do not have a list in hand so they are either working from an amazing memory or they are just hunting to see what they can buy.

    As a mere male, I salute the female who shops in supermarkets they never cease to astound me whilst they push a loaded trolley and pacify a child or children at the same time.

    I now believe that God made supermarkets just for the ladies - Bless you all. :001_smile:

    Good observation :D

    However you are forgetting the males that seem to add stuff to the trolley when said female is browsing.
    And how they feign shock/surprise and say " Well how did that beer get in there I wonder?" :D:D

    I can put my hand on my heart and tell you I never never ever add things to my wife's trolley.
    The reason being that I would never dream of going anywhere near a supermarket with her as it can take her two hours, yes TWO hours to get from the trolley park into the store as she meets so many friends. :nono:

    I do most of my shopping online now. It's so much easier and much more convenient than trawling round the shops and having to make decisions under pressure of one kind or another.
    I usually use Asda for my food shopping, coz they are cheaper. In almost a year I've only had to phone them a couple of times with problems. Their customer service is good too and any problems are dealt with quickly.
    I'd really be stuck without online shopping as I have no transport and the bus service isn't that good.

    I personally wouldn't feel comfortable buying fresh meat and veg on line as I like to see what I am buying. You could get a piece of beef which is half fat for example and you have paid for it by then.

    I absolutely HATE grocery shopping - the crowds, the queues, always forgetting something. Dont like doing it online either as resent paying some of the high delivery charges or them not having stuff in/substituting items for ones I dont like. Wish I could give my list to someone, they go buy it all, bring it back and unpack and put it away for me.

    I charge 15 pence per mile and £10 per hour if you want me to cook it as well then there is an extra charge. To write the list for you I charge £25. :001_smile: :001_smile: :001_smile: :001_smile: :001_smile: :001_smile: :001_smile:

    They put the refund back into you bank account, no problem.
    When you think about what you'd spend on petrol and parking, the delivery charge doesn't sound too bad either!
