Fueling Our Summer Adventures with Albertsons
Every time I write about Albertsons, I just have to mention that the very FIRST Albertsons store was opened not too far from me by Joe Albertson himself. I grew up shopping at Albertsons and I still shop at that original store from time to time. Albertsons is my go-to for not only the things I need but also for the service that I really appreciate. Our local manager is amazing and if I ever have an issue or a question, I go right to him. Even though Albertsons is huge, they still offer that same small town friendly customer care and service, and I love that! Nothing speaks summer more to me than family outings to the park, fishing trips and overnight campouts. When I was a kid, these were the highlights of my summers and I enjoy passing my love for the outdoors onto my own kids. I have very fond memories of these outings. My dad would load up the station wagon until it was bursting with everything from fishing gear to tents and sleeping bags. I specifically remember the grocery trips that we would make to Albertsons the night before. These were no ordinary shopping trips, these were two carts full of groceries, enough to get us through a week in the wild outdoors. The funnest thing about these shopping adventures was that not only did we get the essentials, but dad would also grab things that we didn’t normally buy. Things that have now become not only camping “must haves” for my family, but products that strong remind me of my summer adventures as a kid.
My kids wouldn’t miss our on our camping grocery trip for the world, it’s the funnest shopping trip of the year. Everyone has their favorites and we definitely splurge when it comes to our time in the great outdoors. We recently loaded up on groceries for an upcoming camping trip and told the kids they could chill with a few snacks while my hubby and I loaded the trailer. As I was watching their excitement over the simple fact that we were going to take an adventure, I was struck by the pure simplicity of it all. A bag of chips and a few bottles of Gatorade and they were as giddy as could be, it made my mama heart so happy.
I think that a HUGE part of the excitement of going on these trips is that we splurge on items that we don’t normally buy. They had so much fun picking out their favorite items at Albertsons and I loved that many of these products are part of Albertsons Anniversary Sale which means that we will earn 4X back in cash rewards for purchasing them. And cash rewards = gas savings so this is a win/win for the entire family!
