This post should be titled “How Not to Shop With Kids”. We were miraculously out of the house before 10:30 am so I got all ambitious and stopped by 3 stores. Ugh, I’m exhausted. First we went to Fred Meyer. I didn’t use a single coupon and felt naked at the register.

The double coupon is found in the weekly ad at the bottom of the middle page and look’s like this:
