Every 4 days for fresh milk and a top up of whatever has run out. I miss online shopping, it takes so much longer and the shopping crowds with this virus make me uneasy.

Nothing was deleted 11 hours ago. I just checked in the back end of the website. It’s possible your answer just didn’t load?

I went today for the first time in almost two weeks. I did order a fruit/veg box last week. If I didn’t go today I was afraid my family would vote me out. We have had some interesting meals the last few days, but hey no one went hungry. I went first thing this morning to Woolies and got almost everything I needed. Popped into IGA to get what I couldn’t find. Scored some toilet paper there. I should be set for another 2 weeks, I hope.

Have been struggling to be honest. My husband has been grabbing bits and pieces on his way home from work, but because it’s late in the afternoon there’s often not a lot available. We’ve just been making do with what we can get and going every couple of days to top up.
I attempted a big weekly shop on the weekend, but because I’m so used to online shopping I really struggled. Firstly I made the mistake of going to an unfamiliar supermarket as I thought it’d be quieter. Secondly, I have no idea of store layout because I’m so used to online, I was in there for longer than desired trying to find everything.

Still once a week for a big shop, though we did need to pop in the get extra milk over the weekend. Our local has lifted restrictions on fresh milk though, so today I got a full weekly shop so no need to go back to the shops. We have had to adjust our meal plan on the spot, however, because a lot of shelves are still empty but minor details really.

At one point I had to go everyday because there was never milk or things I actually needed

Twice probably every 7-10 days. One big shop and then a top up for fruit, veg, milk and bread.

ANSWER

Because of all the restrictions and shelves not being fully stocked thanks to panic buying we do twice every 10 days. My normal weekly shop has stopped because I can’t buy what we need but I’ve been able to improvise a lot. We are at least having some very interesting meals and I’ve started cooking double to have left overs for lunch the next day.

Once a week. My husband drops in after work. We made a decision that he was already out in the world for work, we dont need to risk myself & the kids. We just get fresh fruit, vegetable & top up of other things, not a big shop.
