Seeing as both hubby and I hate supermarkets with a passion, we do most of our grocery shopping on the Internet these days. Fast, efficient, convenient and delivered to your door - how can you fault it?
Not only that, but we noticed the other day that there's an option for bagless shopping, i.e. they put your shopping in a box, you take it out as soon as it's delivered and the delivery man (or woman) takes the box back. Great idea, you'd think, esp. as we are struggling to reuse what carrier bags we have already, without adding more to the pile.
How is it then that when the shopping was delivered - most of it loose, as expected - there were no less than five items packed in -separate - carrier bags, so we ended up with as many bags as if we hadn't gone for the bagless option in the first place? And what's the point of my unpacking mini tins of evaporated milk, oranges, lemons and yogurt pots onto the floor, only to find that a pack of ham or a carton of orange juice is neatly placed in its very own - full size - carrier bag?
I ask you.
