My husband and I lead a very busy life. Our kids’ various activities keep us running…and running…and running almost every day. There are days we don’t get home until after 8pm.
On top of our crazy schedule, my husband doesn’t get the weekends off, so the only time we have together to run errands is on Monday and Friday mornings. But even then, time is limited because we have to be home for when the kids get off the bus. So we only have a few hours to get everything done that needs to be.
There are various ways that we try to make the most out of the little time we have together to get things done.
We make lists of what we need to do on those days. We then organize our stops in such a way that the we group them together by distance. That way we aren’t driving back and forth and wasting more gas. If we can go to one store and buy several items we need rather than go to several stores for several items, that’s what we do.
We also try and choose stores that are closer to home because it saves us not only money on gas, but saves on wear and tear on the vehicle.
One place that my husband and I love to shop at because not only can we get great deals there, it’s close by and carries many of the items we need, is Dollar General.
I love that I can park out front or on the side of the building and not have to walk far.
Plus, there’s also one right near our kids’ tae kwon do school, which means I can drop the kids off and go run errands, making the best use of my time. I can get in and out in minutes without worrying I won’t be back to pick up my kids in time.
The other day we stopped at Dollar General to pick up some household items, as well as some pet products, which included the items below:
(Our pooches like all the Purina products but they’re favorite is the Beggin Littles. They are the perfect size for our girls.)
