Shopping Time Saver

If you haven't tried or used online grocery shopping, it's the latest a real time saver and for good reason. I spend an average of 1.5 hours a week shopping for food which now takes about 20 minutes.

Benefits of Online Grocery Shopping

  1. Time-saving - Eliminates the need to physically visit the store, saving you hours of travel, gas and shopping time.

  2. Convenience - Shop from the comfort of your home or on-the-go, anytime, anywhere, making grocery shopping fit seamlessly into your schedule.

  3. Reduced impulse buying - Shopping online allows you to stick to your list more strictly, avoiding the temptation of impulse purchases commonly encountered in-store.

  4. Efficiency - Easily locate specific items using search functions or categorized browsing, streamlining the shopping process.

  5. Personalized experience - Save favorite items, customize preferences, and receive tailored recommendations, enhancing your shopping experience.

  6. Access to promotions - Stay informed about special deals, discounts, and promotions, often tailored to your shopping habits and preferences.

  7. Flexibility - Easily edit orders, add or remove items, and choose delivery or pickup times that suit your schedule.

  8. Environmental benefits - Opt for eco-friendly options such as requesting minimal packaging or choosing delivery in reusable containers, contributing to sustainability efforts.

  9. Avoid crowds and queues - By shopping online, you can avoid crowded stores and long checkout lines, especially during peak shopping times.

  10. Doorstep delivery - Enjoy the convenience of having your groceries delivered directly to your doorstep, saving you the hassle of carrying heavy bags or navigating through busy parking lots.

Online Grocery Shopping Tips

  1. Prefer - During the registration, you can indicate if you'd like to hear from them by email and which types of info or specials you'd like to hear about. After my first shop they emailed me a $15 off coupon.

  2. Favorite - Be sure to save regular and not so regular items to your favourites indicated with a heart, so the next time you shop it's faster.

  3. Notes - If available, use the special notes section to let them know any quirky request or have a preference on "substitutions."

  4. Know - your prices, some things are more expensive or are specifically marked up online.

The joy of having that knock at the door and my groceries delivered is a thing of beauty. Lastly, you'll still need to run out for the odd item but if you plan ahead this is less likely.


If you forget something after you place your order, in most cases you can go in and add or remove items within a certain time limit.
