The holiday break is officially over. That means school and work are back in full swing. It also means this busy mama is busier than ever! I know I’m not the only one feeling the pressure from an endless to-do list. And a big part of those to-do’s involve running errands. To say I am already a bit overwhelmed is an understatement to say the least. 2020 has barely begun and my schedule is already jam packed. So, heading out for an epic errands trip isn’t exactly appealing.

Don’t get me wrong. I love a nice, leisurely errand sesh when I don’t have the kids with me. But if I do have kids with me, multi-tasking is a necessity. They don’t quite see the charm in wondering aimlessly down aisle after aisle with a cuppa hot Joe in hand. That’s more Mama’s speed. So, I need to get in and out when those little animals are along for the ride. And that, my friends, is why errands batching is a busy mom’s best friend!

How to Batch Your Errands

So, how does errands batching work you ask? Well, it’s simple. You find a one-stop shop where you can achieve multiple objectives in one quick trip. For me, Sam’s Club is one of those stops. I can go in there to fill a prescription, for instance, but also stock up on everyday essentials like school lunch must-haves, toilet paper and the all important giant bag of coffee. Bwah! I was already going there for the latter, but now that I’ve learned how their pharmacy works, it’s opened up a whole new world for me!
