hi do you do your grocery shopping online? i would never do this i dont trust. they might give you out dated lol or give you a date which is soon to expire lol also may not be in very good condition. although if i didnt have a car maybe it would be the only solution.. actually we would just walk and take a few people hehe

I have done some minor shopping online for stuff that won't sell at the store and have always been pleased with my purchase. Never had any problems at all. Even have shopped for food online as well...yum

Never had any problems at all...but then again I only buy certain things since I am very very picky aout my fruits, so I have to choose those myself

It would be easier as you don't have to actually go to the supermarket! But I agree, I don't trust them. I think I'd end up with everything about to go out of date or everything I ordered would be completely wrong! I like to have a look at the stuff I'm buying too, to make sure it's up to my standards and to see whther it's the worth the price that they are charging for it.

yeah on the travelling wise and effort yep it is easier as you will get it on your front door step with out even getting out of your house. yeah that is the problem you like to see what you are getting.

When someone orders something online, it takes a few days to arrive at their house. Because of this, it made me think about how ordering grocery online would work. I have not done it before and may not ever do it, but I have ordered pizza online before which is food.

yeah it is wierd ordering and then gettingit after. this is difficult because you only want something when it finishes so if you place the order few days before you want it then you might miss things out which you might need after. also if you order too late then it will take even longer to come!! how annoying

I do a lot of shopping over the internet but one thing I do draw the line on is getting my groceries, as you said you don't know if they are going to pick out the best of the stock, especially fruits and vegetables, I prefer to handpick them myself so I am not bringing home any bruised or battered fruits. I think it also gets you out, it is so easy to spend all your time on the internet and you could in theory buy everything, but then if everyone did that the shops would be empty! So there has to be a balance. Plus you don't know who's touched your goods and whether they have chosen the right dates on the products.

I really can't imagine grocery shopping on-line. I guess if you were handicapped and could not easily get out, it could be helpful. I would imagine that the people that do it, have their reasons. It must cost more, I'd think because there would be a delivery fee. I really hope i'm never in a spot to have to do that. I don't like putting my personal info on-line and i try to cut corners financially.

hi yeah i never though about that.. it is good for handicaps!! also i watched a programme about you know like short people and one of the things was when parking ticket people put ticket on cars they cant reach it also when they go supermarket they cant reach things that are higher up. yeah delivery fee is a down side
