What is the one errand that parents hate to do with kids in tow? Shopping. Many, many parents have to deal with shopping for groceries with kids acting crazy, whining for sugary cereals, screaming at each other, tearing off down the aisles in a race.
Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom ambassador. As part of my affiliation with this group I have been compensated to test the Loblaws Click & Collect service. The opinions on this blog are my own.
I do not like having to bring my kids with me to the store for that very reason. My current online shopping situation consists of trying to time my grocery shopping when the kids are at school which often doesn’t work with our schedule. So usually we drag the kids to the store and my husband sits outside with the kids while I shop so they don’t cause trouble in the store.
That doesn’t usually work out as well as it might sound as they just act crazy in the car and drive my husband crazy. Or when it’s the height of summer, it’s too hot to sit in the car so they have to come in anyways. I have 4 children so it’s pretty busy.
Our whole shopping trip takes at LEAST one hour, sometimes more. Every kid that come in the store with me adds another 20 minutes to my trip.
Loblaws has a new program called Click & Collect that will help end these type of shopping trips by allowing you to shop online for your groceries. One of my contributors will be testing out this service and I’ll bring you her thoughts and experiences with this service over the next few weeks.
