Before I had a child, I actually used to complain about the hassle of running errands. I had no idea what hassle was! Even a few stops at different stores tends to wear both of us out. Lately though, I’ve figured out a way to save time, money and the planet: I use the phone!
Instead of driving all over town shopping for certain items, I call stores and talk to salespeople before I ever leave the house. I check to see if an item is in stock, if it’s on sale, and if they can hold one for me at the register. Then I breeze in and pick up whatever it was I was hunting for.
This may seem like an obvious tip, but I’m amazed it never occurred to me before now. What a great way to simplify life and spend less time shlepping my toddler all around town.
