Today, for the very first time, I had my weekly supermarket shop delivered to my door.
It never really occurred to me to do this before, because how hard is it to go to the supermarket? But they can be difficult places to deal with – too bright, too busy, too much sensory overload.
They say that once you’ve tried shopping this way, you never go back. I’m not so sure. It was good, and I was very happy not to have to leave the house, and not to have to go to the depressing place that is the supermarket. I was a bit worried about not being able to pick out my own goods, although they seem to be alright. The shopping came in way too many plastic bags, about ten or so, when usually I would only use four or five.
I did like that when you are preparing your online trolley you get a running total of what you have spent the entire time, which is a really good thing to have, especially when you’re budgeting.
When I spoke to my mum today, she said I was lazy. That maybe so, but it was certainly fun!
