I buy bulky food items online (Milk, drinks etc)

But I do like to pick fresh food like meat or fruit myself.

Tend to order clothes online in a few sizes, then either send or take back ones that don't fit. But food, normally in store.

I think it depends on what for. I find it hard to shop for clothes online as their sizing charts confuse me! But love shopping online for house bits and Cashback deals

Food shopping i prefer to do instore because im picky with the way things look and checking the date on them. I did online with tesco over xmas to get the £25 off voucher. I found it hard remembering everything i wanted without looking around but i did spend less because i didnt have impulse buys 🤣

Like others have said I prefer to buy fruit and veg in store but every few months I’ll do an online shop. The online shop will include bulky items like washing powder, loo rolls and many jars of sauces which are very heavy. It does take some planning but worthwhile.

I like to do a online food shop, its just easier & more convenient for us & I tend to spend less on food online. Rarely have any issues. I shop online for most things in all honesty, I still prefer buying clothes in store tho where possible.

I prefer to do things in person, so preferably seeing things close up, touching things and trying things on. However, it’s often cheaper to buy online, so I do that

Most items with the exception of food I prefer to buy online.I find it far easier to find what i want can compare the prices easily and buy without the hassle of queues , returns are also generally easier. I do however use Click & Collect if it's available.

Food thou I prefer to go to the supermarkets and check out the prices /deals and offers and selected exactly what I want.

I love browsing for things, and clothes shopping i prefer in store so i can try it on but there is more choice online. I tend to spend more online cos i have gift cards from survey sites, it tends to be cheaper and i can get discount codes and cashback

I prefer shopping instore, love having a wonder through the shops and actually seeing the item i'm buying, plus i'm far too impatient to wait for online deliveries to arrive aha

If there is something specific I need that I know I can get cheaper online then I will get it online but in general I much prefer to go in store to do food and clothes shopping so you can look for exactly what you want!

Definitely online. I get anxious when shops are crowded so online keeps my stress levels down. I do some bits in shops but definitely use online more

Food shop in store definitely, I’ve never done an online shop for food! I just couldn’t imagine not picking my fruit & veg myself and I’ve heard about some awful swaps when they don’t have the product you wanted in stock.

Online whenever possible. I'm a bit addicted to ebay and Amazon if I'm honest.

I like to do all of my grocery shopping in-store so that I can see the quality of the food with my own eyes before making a purchase, as well as the expiry dates. But with anything else I prefer to do it online as I hate being in crowded places and not being able to find what I am looking for, which is often the case when I have the money.
