Parking Near Cart Returns Works for Me

Quick and Easy tip for the Day:

When going to the supermarket, I used to look for the closest parking spot to the store. And that worked for me. Quick in and out trip to the store.

Until I had kids.

Now, with 2 kids, I look for the closest parking spot to a cart return. This has made my life so much easier. Right next to a return, I can plop my kids and purse straight into a car without trying to navigate the parking lot. And with a 1 1/2 and almost 4 year old, navigating a supermarket parking lot is more like playing dodge ball with cars.

And when I'm done and loading my car, the kids can be loaded into the car, buckled in, and right next to me as I return the cart.

This little tip... definately Works for Me.

I always give this tip to new moms. I discovered the same thing when I had my first in his infant car seat. The less I had to carry that awkward thing around, the better. Now with a 4 and 2 year old, avoiding the danger zone of cars coming in and out of spots and racing down the lanes is of prime importance.

Regarding your comment - I got 30 free points for just downloading the swagbucks toolbar this past month (one free swagcode each day)... and when I first signed up (the end of August) I checked the swagbucks swidget thing for swagcodes... and usually got one a day from there. :) I also get 1-2 points each day from regular searches (nothing much... but it adds up)
