I personally tend to use the cookies as motivators – we get them at the end if we have had a fairly peaceful shopping trip.  Bringing all 4 kids to the store at once will probably always test my sanity.  I am definitely glad to get to leave most (if not all) of my kids homes with Dad.  Until I had kids I never understood why anyone would want to go to the store at 5 in the morning – now I know. 🙂 

How do you make grocery shopping with kids an easier experience?
