7 Treats To Find At The Grocery Store
Okay, so your family needs to eat. Which means you have to go grocery shopping. Perhaps one of the most boring tasks a mom can do. But wait! It doesn't have to be...it could be a lovely haven of mini-indulgences, little treats you can snag for yourself as you are also grabbing canned beans and paper towels. What I have learned thus far in my new decade is that it is all how you look at it, my friends.
The next time you make a trip to the grocery store, look out for some of these items and give yourself a little treat.
-- A food from your childhood. Did you love lemon cookies? How about Eskimo pies? Why not grab an old favorite and relive a bit of your childhood. Share a memory of eating these with your kids.
-- Mini champagne bottles. Many grocery stores sell wine and beer. Look for some of those little champagne bottles and get them to have on hand to celebrate a good day...or just the fact that it is Wednesday.
-- Snack-size candy bars. We never buy them except at Halloween, and I am constantly wondering why, The perfect size to treat yourself to some yumminess, ideal to pop into your mouth without totally eating a whole candy bar.
-- Precut fruit to take in when it is your morning to bring the classroom snack. They did the work for you, isn't that nice? All you have to do is remember to bring it in...serious treat for all moms.
-- Flowers. Why not grab a bunch and spruce up the dinner table or your bathroom?
-- Magazines. I know, we all check them out when we are waiting in line to check out. The food ones, the gossip ones, the style ones. Grab one and peruse it while you hang out as Kiddo does karate.
--Those little horoscope books. Again, right by the checkout, for $1.99 you can have a little bit of fun with the predictions for the year.
What is a childhood treat you haven't had in a while? What is your latest indulgence or new find you snagged at the store?
