When the kids are with you, it doesn’t look as strange when you talk to yourself, like when you are going over the contents of your cart, reading off your shopping list, “What else do we need? Are we out of eggs? We almost forgot bananas!”
Of course, going solo is a wonderful escape and you can get in & out much more efficiently. Plus, I don’t have to worry about the baby eating my coupons or the bigger boys asking for every little thing.
GROCERY STORE TEST
Borrow one or two small animals (goats are best) and take them with you as you shop at the grocery store. Always keep them in sight and pay for anything they eat or damage.
P.S. I prefer paper... what is UP with Wal-Mart bagging your groceries and giving you one plastic bag per ITEM!? Their bags are overtaking my house!
