Tesco online shopping - again!

Just had my last Tesco delivery before Christmas - the last and nearest one to Christmas that I could get. So I was doing two week's worth of shopping plus extra for Christmas in one delivery. When I got to the check out I found that they have a maximum of 95 items in one delivery! Absolutely crazy. Apparently this is to allow others to have a full choice of groceries. So I had to go through my basket and remove things - really not helpful Tesco! "Every little helps" - with the emphasis on little I think!

Go back and revisit your list. 5 loose bananas count as 5 items but you can get 1 item of a bag of 5 bananas!!!
Loose potatoes are similar. It’s crazy but 95 items is some big shop.
Hope that helps.

Crazy idea Anniezee I have had to order two deliveries two days apart 20th-22nd which I was very lucky to get when the dates where first released,the delivery slots are not very good 2pm -10pm both days plus the cheek of charging two lots of delivery charges do they have 95 items on their click and collect option I wonder I must take a look.

By the way my list includes my DDs shop for my 2 x DGSs birthdays and New Year.

Other supermarkets are available.
I’ve used Morrison’s & Asda throughout the pandemic, both have been very good.
When I looked yesterday, Morrison’s still had slots available before Christmas in my area (Northumberland).

I think it’s so the vans can carry deliveries for more people as well and to hinder stockpiling. 95 is quite a lot, but we are only two, I book deliveries ahead and top up from Iceland if necessary.

It is not a big shop when you are doing two weeks together plus Christmas because you can't get a slot nearer to Christmas. Unfortunately I cannot use any other supermarket as I was only registered with Tesco before Covid hit - no supermarkets are taking on new registrations.

A limit to the number of items has to be set to stop the selfish stockpiling that has happened and will get worse as Brexit approaches.

I’m amazed at 95 items. I thought I was an extravagant shopper but that seems a lot.
I have one on 22nd and 28th from Sainsbury’s.

You don’t have to be registered at either Morrisons or Asda.
You just go to their websites and do your shopping.
