Coming to a Loblaws store near you: The Mommy of all Baby Events #PGMom

Busy moms know that time is of the essence when dealing with babies.  As we (hubby and I) used to call it we were working on Baby Time.   Working on Baby Time entaled a lot of pre-planning and strategical maneuvers.  Family and friends knew to adjust our arrival time according to Baby Time.    Shopping trips were planned around baby's schedule to make the most of a contented wee one.  

Shopping in a one-stop type of store is essential with a baby, especially here in Canada where so much of our year is spent in the cold and wind.  I detested taking baby in and out of the car to face the elements.  At Loblaws, moms can shop for quality fresh food and groceries, baby essentials and even clothing for the whole family at several locations across all of Canada.

The Mommy of all Baby Events is coming!

Coming October 10 - 24 to Loblaws company stores (all banners) across Canada is The Mommy of all Baby Events.

The Mommy of all Baby Events will include cooking classes, fun contests, dietician demos and special SALES!! 

Don't miss your opportunity to get involved, bring you fellow mommy friends to participate in the Mommy of all Baby Events. 
Check www.themommyofallbabyevents.ca (launching Oct 10th) for a participating Loblaws location near you.

Tips and Tricks to help make the most of a trip to the store

  • Check the fridge before leaving the house and make a list of what you need to buy.  Don't waste time wandering the aisles trying to remember what you are in need of.

  • Make a meal plan for the week using items you have on hand.  Then, while shopping pick up exactly what you are in need of.  Thus, meaning less trips to the store throughout the week.

  • Why not bring a friend along?  If time is limited you can split up and each take a section of the store, shopping for each other in that section.  Or, if time isn't an issue, one mom can watch the babies while the other mom shops, and then switch.

  • It may not be the most romantic date ever, but a trip to the store without children makes for a less stressful shopping spree.  Book a babysitter, or leave the kids with a family member and go shopping as a couple. 

  • Make your shopping destination a store which offers one-stop shopping from baby essentials, grocery items, health & beauty and clothing for the whole family.

I like your tip of checking the fridge before heading out. I always forget to do that and think I don't have anything and when I come home, I just realized I bought something I already have

Teresa Claire said...

These are great tips, thank you for these pointers. I do tend to wander around when I go out without a list.

Shopping certainly is much easier without towing the kids around.

This sounds great. Unfortunately I do not have a loblaws in my community.

Great tips! Good preparation makes a shopping trip easier and more successful: make a meal plan, check the fridge, make a list, BRING the list.
And I agree, shopping as a couple (with or without kids) does make a nice outing.

Great tips! I wish I had a Loblaws store in town, but I have heard their event(s) was a huge success.
