My Weekly Shopping Cart

POSTED BY Rosemary ON Dec 16th, 2011

By: Rosemary Seguin CNP, NNCP



This week, I decided to shop late in the evening, after dinner, and after I put the kids to bed. All you Mom’s out there know what a treat this can be to have some quiet “alone” time without chasing after little one’s wanting to explore every corner of the grocery store. 

I arrived at The Garden Basket around 7:45pm, and I have to say, I haven’t gone that late in a long time. I realized I should come at this time more often! I found it to be a little more quiet than during the day, and it was a nice time for me to get out of the house. Being home all day with the kids, it's nice to clear my head and relax while I shop. Yes I said relax. Grocery shopping can be relaxing, if you go at non-peak times!!    

Which brings me to this week’s shopping tip:  Go during slow times. This is my favorite time to shop! With or without kids, shopping during day time “working” hours or after dinner is a good time to go. Try to avoid right after 5 p.m., on paydays and near major holidays like Christmas Eve. You'll be more relaxed and enjoy your shopping experience that much more. Happy Shopping!
