Cost of living

Try MySupermarket, you can load your shop and it compares it across all the Supermarkets.
I use Asda as it is cheaper but the range is limited. I've got a delivery pass and I can always get a slot, which helps. I think when it runs out I'll go back to Sainsburys.

I have a delivery saver with Tesco, Morrisons, Asda and I used to have one with Sainsburys before they got creepy drivers. Online shopping is my hobby.
There isn't really a cheapest one of the big four that makes much of a difference. If you buy the own brand cheapest option then in my experience it's much of a muchness. Mysupermarket.com is a good place to compare different prices but if, for example, you want okayish diced chicken you have to go with your experience of your local stores and personal preference. My experience is that Sainsburys is slightly better, but dearer. Asda are a pain in the armpit. Morrison's meat is unpleasant and frequently off, but they have better fresh veg. Tesco are cutting their range so you may not be able to get everything.
Iceland are pretty good, and frozen veg is often slightly better nutritionally than fresh (to do with time between picking and freezing versus picking and getting to your kitchen). They don't have a huge range, but it's worth a go.

Aldi and Lidl don't deliver although I've heard chatter that Aldi are planning in for a few years time.
Iceland frozen veg is fine. They are okay. I've only used them once, without problems, but I have limited freezer space. You can go through TopCashBack and get cash back, and their minimum free delivery on orders over £25.

Another vote for mysupermarket.com but check the swaps it comes up with, eg tesco own brand is often not the cheapest at Tesco.
Although I've started using my local butcher and veg shop and milk and more so I mainly have deliveries of catfood, tins and wine. I do wonder if the staff judge my basket.
