When it comes to shopping for our families, we are always looking for that simple one-stop shop to get it all done the easiest way possible. Making smart shopping decisions is one step closer to crossing things off our to-do lists and making more time for the more important things in life - our kids! 

At Loblaw you can find everyday things your family needs like groceries, baby products, and at some locations, clothing for the whole family, all in one place. 

Here are five great tips to help you be a savvy shopper:

Check the fridge/cupboards and make a list of things you need. I usually make a list starting with the every day basics. Making a list allows you to avoid aimlessly walking around the store for hours.

Make a meal plan. Knowing what meals you want to prepare the following week and what you need to make them can help make less trips to the grocery store, getting everything you need in one stop.

Bring a friend! They say time flies when you're having fun so why not bring a friend and buddy-up to do groceries. You can take turns shopping and watching the kids or split into teams and get what you need in different departments.

Book regular time with your spouse and find a babysitter. It isn't always easy to do but a good idea can be to have a specified time and day of the week to do your grocery shopping. Finding a sitter in advance for these days can allow you and hubby some alone time, even if it isn't all that romantic buying groceries.

Pick a store that has everything you need. Avoid wasting time visiting store after store finding the things you need. Shop at a store that has everything from baby food to clothing for the family. After a few visits, it might just become your regular weekly stop.

To make shopping even more convenient  Loblaw is launching a new program perfect for moms - The Mommy of All Baby Events.
