I do a lot of shopping online. It means I can't get it done whilst insommnia strikes. Although I don't do food shopping online because none of the immensley cheapy places I go to do. Plus if I go in store I can get reduced fruit and veg etc

I've always done a bit of shopping online, mostly as I'm fairly indecisive and like to mull things over (where as my H is a complete impulse buyer and will just make the decision there and then!) I hum and haw and like to look around.
I also now food shop online but that's mostly just because we've just had O. I have zero time to wander round the food shops so do a decent shop to get delivered say once a fortnightish and then if I only need to nip for bread and fruit then it is just a quick 20mins here and there!

Not so much food shopping as I tend to go to Aldi for cheapness plus I get alot of meat and stuff from a wholesale butchers as I find its better quality and better value. Plus the substitutes you get with the food shopping (or don't get) aulu mean you end up having to go to the shops yourself so defeats the point really. I do alot of online shopping for stuff for the kids, clothes, toys etc and household stuff. Basically I you can get it on amazon I do! Have 2 under two makes it very hard just to nip to the shop for something! Also, I can't get it delivered (or if delivery is extortionate) I click and collect stuff as well, especially for tesco direct as there a tesco a stones throw from me.

Also, as I need a lot of dairy free and soya free foods for A its easier just get them online then spend hours in shops reading labels!

We don't do food shopping online. I don't even go to the supermarket, my H does.
I am an ebay addict though. I buy the kids DVDs and wii/xbox/DS games on there. I already have a big stash, ready for Christmas.

I do a monthly online food shop for cupboard stuff so that I only have to do short supermarket trips during the week. I buy most of our clothes, toys etc online as I like the convenience of having them delivered and being able to try on at home.
I like the fact that I can shop around for the best price online, but also there ie not much choice of clothes in my home town so I get a much better selection online.
I am planning a day's shopping with friends this weekend though, so I might not do much online this month :)

We have used online for food shopping before but now we mostly shop at Aldi that's not possible. I don't buy many kids clothes online as I like to see them before buying for size etc. I do buy myself clothes of the internet (rarely that I have new clothes!) because it's very stressful trying to clothes shop with kids in tow plus the choice of clothes shops in my area is poor. Buy lots of other stuff online though to get good deals.

We have done our food shopping online in the past (especailly when we had a newborn) but H drives right past the supermarket these days to and from work so he mostly does it.
We recently won an Able and Cole fruit and veg box which was fun for a change but we try to buy from our local greengrocer so won't be doing it regularly.
I buy some clothes online and we also order loads through Amazon and other websites. Its probably more than I thought to start with.
