I am so lucky, in that Trader Joes is an outing for the whole family (Dad included) in our house. There are advantages to getting up at 6.00am on a saturday, you can beat down the doors of Trader Joes! If I ever have to do it on my own I'll take your tips to heart!


I've only had to go shopping with both kids once, I dread it. Usually one of us goes at night after the kids are in bed to avoid the hassle. But then, we're giving up our kid-free time to get shopping done so it's a lose lose.


Geez. I need a glass of wine just READING that post. I'm so dreading the grocery-store-trip-with-two madness...


We are not yet official "bunchers" as the second half of our bunch is due in April, but I have already realized a long time ago that a parking place next to the cart corral is preferable for us to one near the store. :) Not only can you return your cart without REALLY leaving the car with children strapped in, but it also allows you to control how much room you have for opening doors, etc. on at least one side of the vehicle since it's unlikely the cart corral will leave, thereby allowing another to take it's place too close for your doors to fully open.

I had the strangest experience Saturday. I was leaving Costco with the 17M-old in the cart seat, the 3M-old in her car seat in the body of the cart, and two boxes of groceries under the cart. A van sees me shoving this load towards my car and STOPS AND WAITS for my space! What kind of idiot thinks a baby buncher will be quick getting into the car? While I was in a primo spot (in the shade, three spots from the cart corral), there was plenty of empty space in the parking lot. I just don't get it, but I hope he enjoyed watching the show.


What is up with those people who wait for your space? I know what you mean, Jenny P! I had one dude wait for my space in a mall parking garage when there were PLENTY of other spaces available. I wanted to shout at him, "You've got legs, you moron, walk the extra 100 feet!"

Parking near cart corrals is key, but also parking near an island or median strip works, too. I often tell my boys (ages 3 and 4) to stay on the "grassy island" while getting them in and out of the car. Sometimes they pretend their pirates on a deserted island...even better!!
