I take my three kids, ages four and under, on about 75% of my grocery shopping trips. We are the family you see at King Soopers all the time, with a very loud little boy pretending to be a fire engine driver, complete with siren.
We are the family with children who, for whatever reason, actually like those hard, crunchy cookies from the King Soopers bakery.
Even with the race car carts and free cookies, shopping with kids gets a little frazzling sometimes. What do you do to keep your sanity when shopping with kids? What are your best tips for staying on your cash budget if you do that?
How do you count the number of items required for a particular promo when kids are putting stuff in and taking stuff out of your cart? Which stores have the best kid-friendly shopping carts and does it ever affect which store you shop at?
I’d love to hear your tips, questions, funny stories, and frustrations in the comments!
