Do you think about what you wear when you and the kids go to the supermarket? Do you style up your outfit or touch up your makeup before you hit the shops?
We asked 150 women how they feel about what they wear when they’re out and about with their kids. To our surprise, 1/3 claimed to “look terrible” or “could do better” when doing the grocery shopping.
So we’ve come up with 5 fun tips to make grocery shopping easier, so you can cruise the aisle in style.
5 things to wear when you’re shopping at the supermarket with your kids:
1. Shoes you can run in.
Especially handy for when they loudly announce “I NEED TO DO A POO POO AND I’M BUSTING!” while you are unpacking a trolley full of groceries. Ready, set, run!
By Aisle 7 – at least – you’ll need these to cover up that crazed look you get in your eyes when your kids have asked you for the gazillionth time “Mum! Can I please have this?!”
3. Clothes you are happy to kneel or get down on the floor in.
It’s a real possibility that you will need to retrieve a child who has become stuck under a shelving unit at some stage, and it’ll be down and dirty. Be prepared.
4. Shoes with a closed in heel.
If you’ve ever experienced the sheer agony of being rammed in the ankle bone by one of those mini-kiddie trolleys you’ll know why this is essential.
5. A big smile (and some lip-gloss).
Shopping with your kids can be a real challenge, but a big glossy smile can go a long way.
