Tips For Ordering Groceries Online For The First Time

by Dolores Fletcher

If you're short on time to the point that grocery shopping is a challenge, the logical step is to order your groceries online and have them delivered. Whether you order from a grocery shopping delivery service or place an order with your local supermarket and stop by at a designated time to pick up the order, this modern convenience can greatly make your life easier. You can browse the store's choices on your computer, tablet or smartphone, select what you want and even pay online. There's no need to be intimidated by this new process if you haven't previously experienced it. Here are some tips to make your first time go smoothly.

Make An Exact List Of What You Want

It might seem overly simple, but it's hugely advantageous to tackle your first online shopping experience when you have a precise list of what you want to buy. It's too easy to be attracted by sales, get distracted and end up buying things that you don't really need; unlike shopping in person, you don't have to hold something in your hands and evaluate it — you can simply click to add it to your cart. You can further make this process easier by grouping the items on your grocery list together. For example, keeping all of your dairy items together, all of your produce items together, and so on. These things are grouped together online, so it will be easy to add them to your cart and check them off your list.

Don't Automatically Opt For Bulk

Buying in bulk can be beneficial, but it won't hurt to avoid bulk purchases until you're a little more accustomed to ordering your groceries online. The concern with buying in bulk is that you'll see the weight of a package in the item's description, but might not be able to picture its size — unlike shopping in person. You don't want to end up buying something that is a good deal but for which you don't have freezer space.

Make Sure To Get Enough For Free Delivery

If you're using a shopping service in which the groceries are delivered to your home at a designated time, you may be eligible for free delivery if you buy enough. Make sure to confirm this amount on the site; the last thing you want to do is buy $66 worth of groceries and have to pay for shipping, when spending $75 would have made you eligible for free shipping.
