Here ya go parents, you can actually save more money shopping by doing this! Just a few tips to follow that can also make shopping relaxing and stress free! All you have to do is follow a few easy steps! All outlined on The Mike & Carla Morning Show this morning!

SWNS recently published results of a survey done with over two-thousand US parents. The study results showed that two in three parents found that going to the store with their kids ends up being more expensive than if they were to shop alone! On the flipside, going alone costs them an average of $133, while shopping with their kids cost them an average of $179!

Start by shopping alone!

Results of the poll also showed that going alone allowed parents to buy different items from different stores. A whopping sixty-Five percent of the two-thousand polled said this. While alone, forty-four percent of the parents look for groceries, forty-percent can look for beauty products, forty percent search electronics, and thirty-eight percent shop for clothes. All with no children with them!

If you do shop with kids…

Now, if you do decide to bring the kids, the survey percentages drop a lot! Thirty-five percent of parents surveyed claimed that it was a struggle having the kids along! This lead to bribery to behave. Forty-four percent of  parents said they bride their kids to be good while shopping. Of that forty-four percent, only eighteen percent say it works. This is where the extra spending comes into play mostly. Bribed with snacks, toys, and candy.

So mom and dad, next time you think about going shopping for the kids, maybe you should just leave them at home. If for nothing else, it can save you money! We have more on this story in today’s edition of a “Few Things You Should Know!”
