My new years resolution this year was to try and make life easier for myself and the wife by streamlining many of the everyday and mundane tasks that take up so much of our time, we already do 90% of our Christmas and birthday shopping online so we decided to give the supermarket home delivery a try.
Neither of us particularly enjoy trudging round our local supermarket and because of our village location we are restricted to one supermarket that is more of a glorified corner shop than a supermarket so we're not really getting the choice offered by supermarkets in larger towns and cities but hey ho what we did discover was by having our groceries delivered we were able to choose from much larger stores including Sainsbury's, Asda, Tesco and Waitrose so all of a sudden we were spoilt for choice.
It did take us about an hour and a half busy tapping away on the computer to select all of the shopping that we wanted, this was a little off putting but we then found out that our shopping list is saved online so next time we simply select what we want from our previous delivery.
Anyway without waffling on, the long and the short of it is that we saved ourselves not only time from not trudging around our so-called supermarket but we also saved money because we were shopping in a larger and more competitive store through our online selection. We had to pay £5 delivery charge but I'm guessing that the petrol to run our vehicle there and back would almost come to £5 if not more.
So now we are what you might call hooked on supermarket home delivery, it's great fun but you need to be aware that prices can vary quite considerably from supermarket to supermarket, we found mySupermarket a real help, this is a price comparison site that specialises in supermarket home delivery and is well worth checking out by clicking the highlighted link above.
