Early morning grocery runs

*Thank you Albertsons for partnering up with us on this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.*

As most of you already know, waking up before the sun and sneaking off to our local Albertsons is probably my favorite thing to do. In fact, that’s probably all I’ll be doing from August 1st through August 14th when Albertsons is having their big Anniversary Sale! I am lucky enough to have a husband who doesn’t leave for work until 7am, so that gives me 2 hours of “me time” if needed. So, typically yes, the people who work the early morning shift at my local Albertsons have a pretty good idea of who I am by now. Just a mama of three, trying to beat the summer heat and pick up any last-minute snacks I need to get all of us through our summer days.




Albertsons is just about a 5-minute drive from our house, so I normally only take about 40 minutes each trip. This gives me enough time to come home, put away the groceries, and then maybe sit down and have a cup of coffee and some breakfast before the whole house wakes. Again, I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate those slow, quiet mornings. Especially during the summer when my house is normally chaotic and loud.

I’m not a huge breakfast fan. Actually, my whole house could make do without breakfast if I gave them that option. We normally stick with a glass of Tropicana 100% Pure Orange Juice, No Pulp and a bowl of Quaker Instant Oatmeal in the Maple & Brown Sugar flavor! We like to add fresh berries to it as well. Such an easy, yet so delicious breakfast!


Pro tip:  you can purchase all your family favorites, like Tropicana Orange Juice, Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Doritos Nacho Cheese, and Pepsi 12-pack cans for such a steal during that huge Albertsons Anniversary Sale from August 1st – August 14th that I mentioned earlier!



So, mark your calendars for the Anniversary Sale! I purchased these products at my local Albertsons, but you can also get in on the deals at any of the Albertsons Companies family of stores including Safeway, ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Randalls, Tom Thumb, Shaw’s, Star Market, and Carrs/Safeway. Visit Albertsons.com to find a store near you and discover some fun meal-prep tips and recipe ideas!


I don’t know about you, but I love buying my family’s groceries for a great price. I can’t wait to go back and purchase some more of our favorite snacks.
