Shopping During Lockdown | Giveaway

Disclosure - The gift card used in this giveaway is a combination of cards I have been paid with in the past. Unfortunately you cannot use them online for grocery shopping.

Asda Gift Card

Last week was the first time since March that I have stepped inside a supermarket. We usually get our shopping delivered each week anyway as a delivery pass holder so that just continued throughout lockdown. I was quite nervous visiting as I had heard stories that the queues were huge and the shops inside were so busy but it was actually okay.

There was a queue outside but it wasn't huge. There was a staff member at the front of the store letting customers in. I think it was a one in one out system. When it was our turn we grabbed a small trolley and headed inside. There was plenty of hand gel and wipes for trollies and baskets.

Once inside it wasn't much different than usual except there is a one way system around the shop with arrow markings on the floor telling you which aisles you can go up or down on.

There are plastic screens around the checkouts now just in front of the cashier and till. You can still load your shopping on to the conveyor belts and pay as normal. When we left I didn't notice any hand gel for on the way out but we had wipes in the car anyway.

Overall I thought it was well organised. Some people didn't follow the one way system at all but as long as you stick to it you can shop as normal.

Will I be rushing back to do a weekly shop? Probably not but I definitely will feel more comfortable now  if I need to pop in for milk or bread, as I know what to expect.

How have you found shopping during this time? Is your local supermarkets well organised?

  6. I'm shielding and haven't left the house since the end of March - except for a brief hospital visit, which I don't count! All my grocery shopping has been online and Asda has been my saviour. I used to shop mainly at Tesco, but Asda have been much easier to book a slot with, their online ordering system is superb, I actually prefer their range of foods and I think they're cheaper. I'm definitely a convert and am looking forward to visiting my local store soon. Fingers tightly crossed to win this great prize! x

  10. Amazing giveaway! Ive found shopping quite stressful during lockdown - I used to love doing the weekly shop but I found myself being very nervous and aware of everything I did

  11. I've been shopping in branch throughout, and apart from the early issues with stock levels have found it very straightforward with minimal queues outside and no queues at the till. Other than the annoying one way system, it actually feels more relaxed than normal

  21. I think as long as you be alert as Boris says and make yourself as safe as possible and follow the rules, it's not as daunting when you do see measures put on place. You do get the odd person as you say, not go the correct way, but I feel I'm trying to be as safe as I can doing. Things my way. Oooh I'd love a shopping vouvher at the minute!

  31. It's going to feel so much safer from tomorrow when it becomes law to for everyone who's in a supermarket or a small shop to wear a mask. I popped into Sainsbury's today and only about half of people were wearing a mask.

  35. Have yet to venture into one since March. Its just been home delivery and then Click and Collect for us. Although the other member of my household has started going in them again fairly recently, despite being vulnerable..! So, I may brave one for the first time next week now that the mask rule has been brought in, and also because it is getting a bit boring being stuck in all the time..
