Having been caught out last year by leaving food shopping til Christmas Eve, and car parks full and some things not on the shelves, like turkey!, I've decided to do my food shopping this afternoon. Dreading it! How long did it take to do yours?

I find it's a fairly continuous process. I started buying food decades ago, and still haven't finished.


Hopefully still got quite a while to go.

Food is very interesting issue all ways need it, I am like "Late" still shopping for it.

The xmas dinner was bought ages ago and is in the freezer, however I am on my last bar of soap, am running low on margarine and sugar plus I have no crisps for xmas but due to snotty nose I don't want to go anywhere until its stopped dripping

Screw that, home delivery due at 10am tomorrow.

I started mine in September X)
Non perishable items obviously and tomorrow my fresh stuff will be delivered to my door
The Bacon, sausages, sausage meat, puddings etc etc are all frozen. I nearly had heart failure yesterday trying to simply pick up a click and collect order with the chaos!
Good luck ☺☺☺

I don't know which half is more disturbing. oO

Just been to Tesco, couldn't find a parking space for a while. Walked in the store and saw the queue for the auto checkout was half way down the store, I walked straight back out.

We are going tonight, neighbors lending us his car and we are going about 1am as is generally dead at that time,

Good luck with the shopping OP I've gone for the lazy option and am ordering mine online. It's quite time consuming and no doubt a few things won't turn up, but i'm passed caring. I was supposed to be going out to get the rest of the prezzies today but something came up, so that will be done tomorrow....

hopefully

Don't do it!!!! Just got back from Tesco right now.
Some serious trolley rage going on in there and it took me at least 3x longer than normal to do the actual shop!

Got the car back but its exactly as we sent it to the mechanic, got another better (hopefully) mechanic coming looking, at this rate it would of been cheaper to buy a new one!

turns out this guy i used did fit what he was supposed too, but he left the engine missing nuts and bolts everywhere.

You must remember if the weather turns = panic = buying everything in sight =

Asda is going to be closed for a whole day over the Christmas period as such I have filled the freezer with 7 white sliced loaves and the cupboard is filled to the brim with tinned beans.

be prepared.

Tesco extra Middleton is fine. I expected it to be rammed but although the car park seemed busy, the checkouts were quiet.

Been back about half an hour. Actually it wasn't too bad, bit of a wait to park but no trolley rage and got most of what I needed. Just cream and melba toast to get, which I 'll get Christmas eve when I have my hair cut and coloured. Going to cook my gammon now, going to Google a recipe. Two years ago did it in coca cola and last year in cider and calvados (old bottle hanging round for years). Good luck everyone with your shopping! Hope the home deliveries work out for onliners.

I don't normally do a big shop as there's only two of us, so tend to shop locally. We haven't overstocked but my fridge is rammed because it's only small. I agree it's only a roast plus a bit but I do like to have a good range so my guests feel spoiled. CHEESE! Yummy xx

Been to Sainsburys and Aldi today and were both very quiet indeed. Aldi especially as there is usually at least 10 people in the queue but almost got served straight away today.

That's probably because all the nutters leave it 'til about 4pm on Christmas eve to do their shopping.

It's the same every year X)

I've just got home from Sainsburys and Waitrose (yes i had vouchers to use in each so split the shop) both places were fine, civilized and stocked up. Don't go Xmas eve though, last year Waitrose was queued to the back of the shop, 1.5 hrs wait!! Never again.
