Yep, I loaded up my whole herd of little movers (again) to grocery shop, but this time at Sam’s Club! I know, I’m a glutton for punishment. But we needed food and trekking to Walmart two and three times a week isn’t working. If you’re following along on our Facebook page, then you know I’d planned to do the call ahead thing (Sam’s Club offers Club pickup, where you can place your order online and they’ll have it ready for you!) But – of course – my membership card was nowhere to be found, and you have to have your member number to place the order online! Next time.
It took me until 11:00 to get everybody dressed and loaded in the van, 11:00. We were half-way to Sam’s (it’s about 35 minutes from our house), when I remembered Zander had a birthday party at 2! No problem, but we’d have to hurry. I went ahead and offered everybody an ICEE bribe. How Sam’s wins in the ‘take-your-kids-grocery-shopping’ game = ICEE’s, samples, double-seater buggies. We got lucky with an excellent customer service associate, who had my new card ready for me in lightening speed.
We threw the three younger kids in one buggy – pushed by Uncle B – and I grabbed an empty one for groceries. We ran through that store like we were Olympic marathoners. So fast, in fact, that Dylan didn’t start trying to get out until we hit the diaper aisle, our last stop!
We were able to turn that frown upside down by letting her get out for a couple minutes for, you guessed it, more pics in the grocery store! Even more happy news? Sam’s Club was offering $3 instant savings on Huggies Little Movers diapers (now through July 17th)! They’re the only diapers with a stretchy SnugFit waistband to help the diaper stay in place, perfect for our littlest mover! And the new and improved LEAK LOCK protection is even more absorbent! That’s enough to make us all smile!
I’m one lucky momma to have had my helpers with me. Zander had to work extra hard to get this GIANT box of diapers in the buggy.
We survived through checkout and made it back just in time for Zander’s buddy’s birthday party! And that big box proved handy in more ways than one; it fits a four-year-old perfectly! Enzo entertained himself for a good 30 minutes with this thing!
If you don’t have one already, I really encourage you to grab yourself a Sam’s Club membership! Buying in bulk can save you money and keep you from hanging out in the grocery store all week long! (…and ICEE’s …and SAMPLES …and TWO-SEATER CARTS!!!)
AND you can submit a photo of YOUR Little Mover for a chance to win a $500 Sam’s Club gift card! That’ll buy a LOT of diapers!
