Shop Alone

Sometimes shopping help can be a hindrance.We recommended this option in at least one other section as well, but the truth of it holds up: shop alone. You’ll be much more likely to give in to the latest trends if a child is screaming that he or she must have it. While we feel that it is much better to work with a child and give them some choices in what they get for supplies and clothing, if the budget is really tight the best option may be to leave them at home.

    God isn’t this the truth. I have two kids, and one of them is really good in a store. But the other? Ryan is destined to be either a pickpocket or a magician later in life. The skill this kid has in squirreling things into the shopping cart when I’m not looking is uncanny. Unfortunately my husband works when I shop, so I’m stuck. Guess which one gets to ride in the cart? 🙂

    Also, don’t shop on an empty stomach. It’s a snackfood magnet.
