I am considering doing my shopping online, to save time and maybe some $$ too.

I was wondering if you find the specials the same or different that in the shop? Are things as heavily discounted?

I love doing our weekly shop, to buy up big on things when they go on special, but am wondering if I will be able to do the same thing online? If I do a bit of both I fear I will just spend too much time shopping!!

Obviously there will be some saving from no impulse buys....

Would you go with C0les or W00lies??

We go with Coles because we had a lot of trouble with the Woolies deliveries in our area. Most of the specials are the same, there are some online exclusives and generally the bulk buy discounts don't apply (eg buy 3 for $x).

Thanks Megs...will consider if the 3 for $X is a bit factor for us.

I do remember ordering online when DD was born, I recall one drops stuff at the door and another bought them in (C0les I think).

I can't imagine how grocery shopping would be possible with 4, I take my hat off to you! I am looking for shortcuts with just one little one!! ph34r.gif

I think the specials are pretty much the same unless you tend to scour the aisles for bargains that are just about to go out of date. Those types of reductions aren't available online. Doesn't mean they won't try and fob you off with the same products though. For this reason I only do an online shop if I'm really stuck but still prefer going there in person, see the produce for myself, if I can.

I am a huge online shopping fan but I never, ever buy fruit and veg that way. I've just had too many limp carrots, rock hard bananas and sour apples. I go to our local fruit and veg shop now so that I don't double up and have to go to the grocery store though.

Woolies do some of the 3 for $x stuff but I agree I never seem to see these at Coles online.

Also, the woolies online people always bring everything to my kitchen (down a flight of stairs) but you do need to ask them to do it as their instinct seems to be drop at the door and run for the hills.
