Mom life is full of adventure filled tasks, love and hacks to make life less stressful. Going grocery shopping is something that I have a love/hate relationship with. There are so many challenges when bringing your little ones along and trying to save money. I’ve put together 3 of my favorite hacks while grocery shopping with my littles.
Always bring snacks with you while shopping. I put their snacks into the fun snack-sized plastic bags with their favorite characters on them. I pack them into a wet/dry bag to keep spills from happening and to double as a “just in case” bag if any little ones have accidents. If you are grocery shopping and forget a snack, visit the produce section for the selection of free samples of healthier snacks.
Saving money by choosing Store Brand Formula. Store Brand Formula is nutritionally comparable to nationally advertised brands but costs up to 50% less. It’s called formula for a reason. Infant formula is regulated by the FDA, which means that all ingredients need to meet specific nutritional standards – that means that all formula brands contain comparable essential nutrients to make sure baby stays healthy and received nutrients to grow. So what is the main difference between these baby formulas? The truth is it comes down to a single word: price…that’s it!

Go for the big bag vs. the convenient bags. Unfortunately, for the convenience of grab and go- you’ll pay twice the price! I save the money by portioning them out into their snack bags. Having items in ready-to-go snack sizes is perfect for my kids. I have a section of the pantry at their level to grab-and go when quickly heading out the door.
