How I Get Through the Grocery Store

It might not be the best way, but it works for me.  When I started using coupons, it started taking me a little longer to get through the store - this was about the same time my beautiful daughter decided she didn't like grocery shopping with me anymore and it was harder to appease her.  I got really frustrated for a while, but then I found something that works (for now).  Outside our grocery store, we have a merry go round and she started asking to ride it so....I told her if she didn't whine in the store and if she helped Mommy out in the store then she could ride it after we purchased our groceries.  It has worked for the past 3-4 months now.  It is worth the 50 cents to me to have a peaceful shopping trip in the store.  I know it will probably not work for more than a year, but for the time being.... :)
