Last Saturday we were headed to that big retail store that starts with W and ends with mart.
Bear in mind that it is not one of my favorite places to shop. You are more than welcome to love the store. Just don’t expect me to love it. However, sometimes it’s the easiest place for me to get our toiletries for a good price. We have to use shampoo and deodorant, ya know.
We were headed to the second closest store of that particular chain. Partly because the closest one is always crowded on the weekends, partly because it’s just junkier, and partly because a year or so ago an employee got stabbed by a customer. Sounds like where I want to take my kids, ya think?
My whole immediate family is in the vehicle. I have my list and coupons. I’m prepped, psyched, and ready to shop.
It did actually turn out ok. We only had to make one bathroom trip. We found all but 2 things we wanted. No meltdowns by the kiddos or their mother. Saw another couple we know. I only bought one wrong thing; and I saved $15.00 with coupons.
We had already planned to treat ourselves to lunch at the restaurant with the golden arches. We just let the kids figure it out for themselves. We even used 5 coupons for free things at the restaurant.
Then we drove home and took naps. That was fun too. 😀
