Woolworths Online: My Fav Features

Sponsored by Woolworths Online

I like online shopping. When it comes to shopping for my groceries I tend to float between online and regular shopping because I enjoy the process of seeing the food I buy.  However, during this busy time around Christmas, I do a lot more online shopping to save time.  And there’s nothing quite like someone bringing the groceries inside for you (that’s my favourite part).

In bed late one night I made a list on Woolworths Online of things I needed to make nut-less protein balls (for the children’s lunchbox). I saw this recipe on my friend @engineermum’s Instagram feed.

Nut-less Chocolate Protein Balls

I search and add to my list whenever I have a spare minute anywhere I have internet connection.


Sort Feature

The feature I like the most is being able to sort grocery items by unit price so I can easily see the cheapest items the most expensive. For example, below I am searching for bread and have sorted it by ‘unit price low to high’.

Jamie Oliver

The other big draw for me is the Jamie Olivia recipes. I’m a big fan of his style of cooking (because much of it is achievable for a cook like me). I can easily print recipes and also add the ingredients needed directly to the trolley. For example, this Grilled Fruit Pavlova Recipe.

From the ingredient list, I can add whatever I need from the list directly to the trolley (this also allows for items I already have in the cupboard).

Another feature is the gift range you can have delivered directly to anywhere in Australia.

Selecting ingredients with my own hands is something I enjoy, and I will continue to do in the future.  However, I love the flexibility of online shopping, especially around this time of year.  It saves me time and meshes around my life.
