New Remke Rewards Program

I hate going to the grocery.

I hate it even more when I have to take small children.

So much more stuff ends up in my cart when I take the kids. I am balancing my crumbled up paper list, monitoring the ‘goodies’ they are trying to toss in my cart, making sure they don’t knock over the elderly or a display of cookies, and maintain my sanity.  It’s hard.

What makes my shopping easier?  Especially at Remke Markets?

The Grocery Trip

My original plan was to leave for the grocery right after the second grader got on the school bus at 8:35am.  Well, let’s back up.  My original original plan was to leave for the grocery at 7:00am and be in and out so fast I’d be home by 8:35 to get him on the bus.  Yes, I could do it.  I have my grocery list catagorized by aisle and my coupons grouped together…..thanks to my superb kaizen abilities and organizational skills perfected at my previous employer.  Joanna, stop laughing.

Anyway, that didn’t happen.

Here’s what did happen.  Baby girl got up at 7:00am.  So, she went to the bus stop with us.  In her pjs. 

Then we got back home and I messed around with my list (still organizing!).  Put together coupons.  Calculated the exact number of items I needed to buy to get my $5 off at Kroger.  Talked on the phone.  Fixed baby girl’s hair.  We hit the road about 10:00-ish.  Then we went to the coffee shop.  Hey, momma’s gotta have her chai!

Finally, Kroger! 

One thing’s for sure, I love love love the ginormous car carts!  Who’s with me?!  Yeah, I really don’t like them either.  I do like them when they keep my younger two strapped in and entertained like monkeys at the zoo……  But, I don’t like them when I am trying to turn the corner without knocking down the entire Cheetos display.  Of course, even though I just have one kid with me, we have have have to have the ginormous car cart. 

Here’s the car cart.

Hey, where’s the kid??

Half way through the shopping experience, here’s what happened.

THERE she is!!

Now I am steering the ginormous cart with one hand and holding a peanut butter cracker eatin’ kid with the other.  Yes, I guess I could have just strapped her in and listened to the screams as I raced down the aisles.  But, she’s quite a little Houdini and ends up with the seatbelt around her shoulders or her knees while her head and arms are sweeping the floor right outside the cart.  So, believe it or not, this way was faster. 

At least I only had to bring one kid….right?
