Of course if you are a dog-lover down pat, a trip to the mall with your beloved pet in tow would be the most rewarding experience. Imagine browsing the racks and rows and windows of your favorite shops and boutiques while giving your dog a walk for a breath of fresh air, talk about hitting two birds with one stone, right? Just make sure to put him on a leash for his own safety or bring along his doggie bag for when he is tired to walk and would love to be carried instead. Bring some doggie treats and snacks and water, too. Also, make sure he does not wander off too far, you would not want him getting mange from unkempt dogs on the streets, right?
I used to have two separate shopping schedules every week. Saturday or Sunday is market day for me. I replenish raw stock including chicken, pork or beef meat, sea food, vegetables and other ingredients that would last for three to four days in the fridge. If no time to cook I would open up canned goods or just run to a nearby store that sells affordable cooked meals everyday. They always save the day.
On the other hand, I do grocery shopping for hotdogs, bread, milk, on separate day usually on Sunday afternoon. Hubby takes care of the kids’ vitamins, his maintenance medicine, testoripped and vitamins. I stick to my weekly budget unless the kids went shopping with me.
