Last minute holiday shop and go

Unfortunately for me in my rush to pack for Florida I had forgotten to organise the food for our self-catering holiday. Anyone who has done this sort of holiday knows that you need to take certain things with you including cleaning materials, toilet roll, tea and coffee and other household basics.

Now as a lover of getting my food delivered I did look at this but we didn’t really need a huge amount and I didn’t really want to buy stuff for the sake of meeting a minimum delivery amount and then paying a fee on top. I also didn’t want to traipse around a supermarket whilst feeling so shattered.

SheKnows had challenged me to use ASDA’s Click & Collect service and I decided that now was definitely the time to finally give Click and Collect a go. I had never really seen the point of it before I mean you have to go to the supermarket to collect it so surely it is just lazy not to actually go into the shop? However with no energy to walk around the supermarket and with Alison also feeling the effects of our overnight flight and a list already prewritten it was a great time to give it a chance.

Having ordered my shopping for delivery from ASDA in the past I was able to place the Click & Collect order using my favourites. The order did not take long to submit and by 10am on Thursday morning I was done and to make it even better I was able to select a same day collection which is a lot quicker than you can arrange deliver. I pulled up during my one hour time slot, signed the paper, loaded my car and off I went. It was quick, it didn’t cost me anything extra and I have finally seen the benefit to click and collect.

As with delivery the first time you use the online service will always take a long time but as we are creatures of habit we tend to buy the same items so after the first shop it just gets easier. So I don’t miss out on any great offers I always have a look in the offer section of the website too.

If I am very busy and we need some basics or something for dinner I will spend a few moments online and then pull into the car park of my local ASDA more often! It would definitely save the stress of taking the kids into the supermarket too.
