and i thought it went so well...

i was impressed with how well everyone did at sam's club this afternoon. after naps is not my favorite time to go out and run errands, but i had two that i wanted to get done today. i knew david would be a bit later, so i thought i'd take advantage of the window of time.

sam's club went surprisingly well, i thought. the kids did well. stayed where they were supposed to (in the cart). the cart wasn't terribly hard to push. we only had a few things to get. they were the expensive ones (bummer when they all end up on the same receipt!). you know - toilet paper, laundry detergent (yes, i'm back to buying it because of my fancy schmancy HE machines), diapers. they were out of swim diapers (REALLY mad about that), and didn't have the type of ink we needed for our printer (annoying). but it went well. as in no meltdowns. for kids or the mom.

so i'm putting all the stuff away now, and just discovered that i got the wrong size of diapers. good grief. so much for "my last trip to sam's club before i have the baby". that is SO annoying. guess i was basking in the glory of having a successful errand and not paying attention!!

Yum about the diapers?? Just kidding, Court ;)

Diapers.com. Free delivery, comparable prices, and they take coupons. I will NEVER buy diapers in a real store again!!!

Speaking of deals on diapers, Toys R Us/Babies R Us has their rewards program (it's free), you buy 9 big boxes of diapers, the 10th is free. Their prices are within a few dollars of Sam's/Costco and they take coupons, often have a $5 off coupon of their own. Since jonathan's still not potty trained and one on the way - we'll be taking full advantage of that 10th free box!...still you'll have to be sure to get the right size though :)

Returning stuff is no fun. I hope you got diapers that are too small so you can just keep them for Caleb instead of having to return them. I hate returning stuff at Sams.

I think when the store is out of something I need, that is the most frustrating part. Don't they know how hard it is to actually get there, the least they can do is have everything we need.
