Recently there was an interesting thread on the Living Below Your Means board, about the economics of buying groceries online and having them delivered. One poster said that they saved more than the delivery cost by not being there in the store to make impulse purchases.Last time I shopped I compared the receipt with the original list. Sure enough, there was $7 worth of impulse purchases, enough to get the same groceries deliverd by www.netgrocer.com. On the other hand, I did eat the impulse purchases so they weren't wasted. I do think that if I was short of time, or physically limited, I'd get the non perishables delivered and buy the produce, meat and dairy as I went along. Seems worth the money to buy the time.Reader99Likes netgrocer.com
