  • I found shopping online to be such a good way to keep your spending under control. When I’m instore, I often add things that weren’t on my list. However, online, I simply stick to the list.

  • Know exactly what you want – it makes it so much faster.

  • look for coupons on sites like oz bargins

  • look for specials like free shipping

  • I like woolworths click and collect from the store. I often get extra goodies thrown in, like order chicken breasts and get the free range stuff instead

  • I find that I look to choose my own fruit and vegies in store as you can get varying quality. Some times it great other times it’s not. I also try and stick with specials as things not on sale are dearer that what you can get in the shops. But budget is important to me while convenience may be more important for others and are happy to pay a little extra.

  • I think its great. It takes a bit of getting used to though.

  • Online grocery shopping is good for some goods not for fresh products. Viewing grocery shopping as a family trip and make it enjoyable as long as budgeting the spending.

  • I don’t often grocery shop online because the delivery price usually makes the goods too expensive unless I am doing a really big shop.
    Sometimes some of the online groceries have excellent specials and also occasionally offer free delivery which makes it more worthwhile.

  • i just found out that coles has first delivery free for an order over $100 and every wednesday is free delivery anyway. woolies has varying offers but i think it now is first 3 orders free delivery. They always change it up though

  • Ok. I shop on https://m.groceryrun.com.au/ I save loads. They sell everything! Form shampoo, cereal..everything! And always cheaper than the shop! I can’t stop buying our food from here. We save loads! They always deliver so fast! Like 3-4 days. Have a look. You will be surprised.

  • I’ve noticed Kogan now has a grocery line and some items are pretty cheap. They have a delivery fee though, so you would have to factor that in.

  • Have done this a few times when needed and have found it to be handy with no extras been brought and convinces of it all.

  • I just received an email from Woolworths online stating unlimited deliveries for a month for only $1. Cant get much better than that.
