    I group things how I want them bagged. I don't care if pantry items go in with f&v but I can't handle when they put meat in on top of f&v. Don't they know about meat juices?!

    I don't use the same order all the time but I put similar types of things together. Had a lovely rant on the woollies FB page one day after the checkout dude reached over everything and packed random **** together. Grrr.

    Yep, I have a system too

    *All pantry items first..tins, cereal, flour, coffee, tea, pasta, rice, baby food/formula etc, etc

    *All cleaning/bathroom/llaundry products/nappies

    *Fruit and vege's

    *Fridge/freezer items

    *eggs/bread/bakery items last (squashed bread really pi$$es me off and I don't want to risk breaking the eggs).

I don't care what way items face, like with barcodes a certain way or anything but I'm certain that I don't want my canned tomatoes with my bread!
    This is me exactly. I also hate it if something i cant eat (ie laundry powder or cleaning products) is in a bag with stuff i can eat.

    No real system.
    I don't purchase meat, bread or fruit and vegetables at the supermarket so notice to squash.

    I don't really order them much - the kids are usually "helping" put things on the belt so I am too busy ensuring they don't drop, open, throw things to care about what order things are in.
