(Finally) Finding Joy in Doing the Groceries

Being a wife and mother is a 24/7 job, no holidays, no weekends off and no overtime pay. It is the most underrated but hardest job in the world and entails utmost commitment and sacrifice. We can only fully understand what our mothers have gone through when we become wives and mothers ourselves. I know that now. No complaints though as the journey and experience per se is just absolutely priceless. The happiness, bliss, laughter, learnings and memorable moments are worth more than any paycheck.

One of the challenges of married life is having to manage the household and keep the household budget in check, just like in any other company. This means having to be always on the lookout for the best value deals for big items on the budget, such as the groceries, especially if you want to save up for the occasional good dinner out, weekend getaway or out of town trip. (click on read more)

And that is why Shopwise's smart deals always excite me. Yes. The groceries. They excite me. I'm all about simple joys and thrills. I used to dread having to go do the groceries and would only do so once a month. But I've learned how to enjoy it. Especially with Shopwise opening practically in our backyard. Apart from the location, literally being one minute away from our house, the selection of items is superb, it being a hypermarket- so you get home accessories, gadgets, clothes, toys, wet and dry goods all under one roof. Plus, since it is owned and operated by Rustan Supercenters, we are assured of the best quality, value and freshness.

Ongoing now until tomorrow, April 15, is their Bullseye Weekend. There are a lot of items on promotion already but we will be going tomorrow for the Payday Giveaway treat. They're giving away half a dozen eggs for a minimum purchase receipt of P500- and I love eggs for breakfast, from omelets to (attempted) eggs benedict to sunny side ups over garlic rice or French toast.

So yes, yay to doing the groceries! and being able to bring your kid along for the (shopping cart) ride.
