A few months ago I was talking to a friend of mine who has twins about a year younger than mine and she was asking me how I ever went to the store with the kids. So this post is for the twin mommies out there! It always fun to see what other people do :)

Going grocery shopping has had its challenges over the past 2 years and those challenges have changed pretty often. At first it was impossible to go to the store because I only had 30-45 minutes breaks between nursing. As they got a little older it got much easier. I started out with them in their carseats across the basket and I would just lift one up to put groceries underneath. Then it got even easier when they could sit in the seat with on leg bent and the other through the hole. Now it is harder again with them in the basket messing with all of the groceries. But even worse are the fits over wanting to be held, wanting in the basket or in the seat, or wanting the bag of frozen veggies the other has, etc!!





Notice Sawyer has to have a purse now...



I am sure this will change next year if they start a mothers day out program. I will make sure and go by myself!!

I love it! Thanks! I go by myself but I take our huge stroller and can only buy what fits in the little basket! I have tried the one leg in and one leg out but my girls get out of the ASAP!

What a cute post! We're getting a new grocery store that will have the double seated carts (4 holes!) I can't wait!

I always shopped with teh stroller when they were little. Now, I just go without them! It is WAY easier.

We only go to HEB or Sams with the 2 holes. Before that, I was working full-time so I only went on the weekends. If I went w/ the kids I shopped with the stroller which had a HUGE basket underneath. Now I hook on one of the recycle bags on to the stroller and fill the bag and the bottom of the stroller.
