My inability to do an online food shop…

So I appear to have an inability to do an online food shop successfully. Over the winter hubby has always taken little man on a Saturday afternoon to Tesco to do our food shop.

Now it is summer and it is officially cricket season, I do my food shop online and then just collect it after swimming lessons on a Saturday.

The issue is that I always forget something! It has become a standing joke now that hubby will try and find the items that I haven’t ordered when he gets home.

There has not been one shop I have completed with every item bought on my list – therefore needing to visit Tesco on the Sunday to get the last couple of items that I forgot.

It really isn’t that much of an issue, but this week it has all just gone a bit wrong.

I was late home on Tuesday, and hadn’t told hubby to check the dates for some meat before he started doing dinner…there was one meal then wasted due to the food going off.

Wednesday we were all late home due to our 90 minutes wait at the doctors. I went to make something quick and easy…and I had forgotten to buy the sauce for the chicken..meal 2 gone!


So the rest of the week I have no idea what we are eating, what we are doing, or even what day of the week it is. It has officially been one of those weeks.

But sometimes, there is only one thing for it….


So who else gets food shopping a bit wrong sometimes???

  1. We always have an online shopping list on the go so during the week if we notice we’re going to need something we add to it. Sadly this means less mistakes and less takeways, will have to revise the plan 🙂

  2. Ha ha – love the fact that you also do an online shop and then still need to go to the shops – that’s me every week! Love the sneaky nothing in for dinner so let’s have a takeaway – skills as my teens would say! Love the fact that your hubby did the food shop all winter – can he give my hubby some tips! I’ve taken to writing an online list and adding to it overtime I think of something that I know I’ll forget – get the ultimate shop list done online – get hubby to check it so that he can’t blame you if you forget anything and then and then just repeat that shop for a few weeks – job done! #PicknMix

  4. I always seem to buy peppers…think I counted 9 in the fridge at one point, I just click the box assuming we must need them and then shopping day arrives and we’ve got no toilet roll. A pepper is not a good substitute for that!

  5. I hate online shopping – I find it impossible! Once I thought I’d ordered 5 carrots, 6 potatoes, 5 onions and 2sweet potatoes. Nope – they were BAGS of. Delivery man was not impressed, we lived up 4 flights of stairs . I blamed baby brain!
