But the Covid reality is that shopping online at one of the bigger supermarkets is not economical at all. You have to spend over £40, which is the minimum basket charge - even at Iceland it's £35 but at least you get free delivery, and then they charge you a fee for pick, pack and deliver of at least £3, depending on the time of day you chose. Even if you are able to click and collect it still costs £1.50 for pick, pack and deliver. And with it being Tesco, you are paying Tesco prices, even on their bottom of the range ranges, which aren't as good quality.

If I were able, I would go to Aldi or Lidl, although we don't have one of those in our town yet. Even better, I would shop local if I could, but being disabled is problematic as accessibility can be a real issue - but the supermarkets offer better value for money - it's not right, but that's how it it. Every penny counts. And I am lucky - I am computer literate since home computers came out in the 80s/90s and I have access to the internet. I have a roof over my head to have deliveries sent to.
