    I mostly hate shopping with my kids, but the grocery store is not too bad. I usually shop at Trader Joe’s, Farmer’s market, and my CSA, so I don’t have to deal with coupons (which I’ve never been able to handle anyway). Trader Joe’s doesn’t care if you open a bag of something or unpeel a banana while in the store, so we snack our way through, and farmer’s markets are always giving out delicious samples. When I take my kids to Target, I always go by the toys first and get my toddler one to play with in the cart. Then we return it before we check out. Thanks for stopping by Eco-novice.

      Betsy, I’m right there with you. I’d rather not shop with my children, but it’s something that I have to do frequently, so, I’ve tried to find ways to make my shopping trips a little less stressful and more manageable.

      You know, I didn’t know that about Trader Joes! That they allow you to eat food like that in the store – even fruit! Wow. I can’t let me kids know about that. ;-)

      And I’ve done the same thing when we go to stores like Target. I’ll pick up a toy to keep my littlest one occupied for a short amount of time – and sometimes, it’s really short!

      Thanks for stopping by!
