While it takes a bit of time to get to grips with shopping on the internet, the benefits are obvious.

For a start, rather than cart the kids to the supermarket for an hour, they can play as you shop from the comfort of your own home.

It's easier to only choose the items you need (because you're not tempted into making impulse purchases), you can ensure you pick the right "offer" items – and it's delivered straight to your door.

But then again, online shopping can take far longer than it should, you can't pick your own fruit and veg and you have to pay for delivery.

CUTTING THE COSTS

Luckily, there are ways to slash those delivery costs. Let's take a look at the six main players – Asda, Ocado, Sainsbury's, Tesco, Morrisons and Waitrose.

STANDARD DELIVERY CHARGES

Asda has a minimum order of £25. Charges range between £1 and £5 and its cheapest slots are Tuesday to Thursday. You can order online up to three weeks before your delivery. The supermarket now offers a range of Groceriy Delivery Passes, which entitles you to free delivery anytime for specified periods. The one-month pass will set you back £8, the six-month pass costs £36 and the 12-month pass costs £60. These longer passes can be paid for all in one go, or on a monthly basis. There's a limit of one delivery per day and you have to spend at least £40.

Sainsbury's delivery costs vary between £1.00 and £6.00, with Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening slots usually being cheaper. There is no delivery charge for shops of £100 or more delivered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays after 2pm. it offers two delivery passes. The midweek pass covers deliveries on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and is available on a three-month basis (costing £10), a six-month basis (costing £18) and a 12-month basis (costing £30). The anytime pass covers deliveries any day of the week, and costs £20 for the three-month version, £35 for the six-month version and £60 for the 12-month version.

Ocado charges vary from absolutely nothing (on orders over £40) to £1.99, with the cheapest slots typically being in the evening (9pm onwards) or early morning (6am-7am). You have to spend a minimum of £40. You can buy a Smart Pass, which reduces the cost of delivery down to £6.99 for a month's midweek deliveries, £34.99 for a six-month pass and £69.99 for a year's pass. If you would prefer anytime delivery it costs £10.99 a month, £49.99 for six months or £109.99 for a year.

Tesco charges £1-£6 and its cheapest delivery slots are Tuesday to Thursday. It also offers a Delivery Saver scheme, where you pay for £6 a month for six months or £60 for 12 months at the price of 10 for free shopping anytime. Midweek plans that get you free delivery Tuesday to Thursday cost £3 for six months or £30 for 12 months. There's a limit of one delivery per day with a minimum order of £25.

Waitrose is the only supermarket to offer free delivery across all its time slots, but you have to spend at least £60 per shop.

Morrisons delivers for £1 at quiet times, £3 at standard times and £5 at busy times. And, much like a pizza, if it doesn’t arrive on time you get it for free! Minimum order value is £40.
