Maximize your shopping trips for a stress-free holiday season

Tuesday, November 8, 2016

We have finally reached November, and with that we welcome in the holiday season. For most of us, that means GO time. We take out our planners and phones and we start juggling. We vow that this year, we will wag more, and bark less! We promise we will be one cool-as-a-cucumber, organized lady from now until New Year’s Day! And then reality sets in and we start to feel a little less confident in our superwoman capabilities! Even more so if we have LBL (light bladder leakage), which can cause an entirely different type of stress altogether.

Maximize shopping trips list



I’ve touched on LBL a time or two in the past here on my blog because I feel it is such an important topic that shouldn’t be taboo. Over the course of this year, I’ve experienced LBL while doing strenuous gardening, to my dismay, and also when making myself wait too long to find a restroom. I kept telling myself, I’ll get just one more item off my list and then I’ll break for the bathroom. Sound familiar?



One shopping trip to @Walmart and I'm done! #ad #PoiseLinerLove


Since then, I’ve devised a new way of shopping. Armed with my master shopping list (that my family helps keep current), I decide what local store would have most, if not all, of the items on that list. More often than not, I find myself shopping at my local Walmart. Not only does most Walmart’s have two convenient bathrooms at the front and rear of the store; I love that I can pick up lettuce for a salad, boot socks for the kids, a holiday card and my newest accessory, Poise Microliners, all in one shopping trip. 


Another tip I’ve started implementing is writing out my shopping list in the order I’ll find products in the store. So worth the prep time when you don’t have to walk all the way through a store again for a forgotten item! That’s saves me time, which helps me be stress-free


#PoiseLinerLove found @Walmart #ad



Ladies, if you are starting to experience occasional LBL like I am ‒ it’s time for you to make the switch from your regular pantyliner to Poise Microliners. The lightest absorbency liners are just as thin as my regular brand of pantyliner, and just as cost-effective. I got this two-month-supply box at my local Walmart for $4.68. I found the liners on the top shelf, but you’ll see the whole line of Poise near the feminine care aisle. 



Make the switch to #PoiseLinerLove @Walmart #ad


One thing I noticed right away when I made the switch was I couldn’t feel a difference at all! Poise liners have thin-flex technology, so they move with your body and they stay put in your underwear, too. They offer 3-in-1 protection: dryness, comfort, and odor control, making them my perfect go-to liner from now on. Each box comes with a number to help you efficiently and discreetly choose which product is best for you. 

If this is your first time purchasing Poise liners and you don’t want to stand in the aisle reading each box, I suggest visiting Walmart.com, where you’ll find helpful information on all the Poise products they carry. 


By setting aside time each week to think through what you need to accomplish, making a master shopping list, routing your path through the store and using your new accessory, Poise liners for LBL, you should be able to maximize your shopping trips for a stress-free holiday season. 

Let’s all endeavor to wag more, bark less, enjoy more and stress less this holiday season.


Happy Holidays!

I think I'm going to pick some of those up. My almost 94 year old Mom writes out everything and everywhere she wants to go--it is up to me to figure out the best route. Luckily she HAS to stop for lunch or I would have a lot more them LBL!

Really great tip for being able to maximize your shopping trips. There is nothing I hate more than having to cut a trip short or extending it longer than it needs to be! Holiday shopping is so stressful!!

I always favor Wal-mart because it has everything we need under one roof, even a Subway under the same roof. I will be stress free (as far as gifting goes) because I started very early. I have night time incontinence so I will have LBL eventually and will definitely keep Poise in mind.

These are all great shopping tips to maximize the shopping experience. Writing the list in order of where things are in the store is indeed an excellent idea. I usually do this in my head with out the list. Thanks for sharing the tips and Poise products really do protect woman from embarrassing moments.

I shop the same way! Writing your shopping list in the order of the aisles at the store is so helpful. I even created a printable on my website that is a shopping list organized by aisle. Great minds must think alike!

These are all great tips and I thank you for sharing them with your readers. Holiday shopping is always stressful! The only way I can avoid getting burned out is to start my shopping as early as August. A masterlist is a nifty idea too.

Man, I never thought I'd see the day. But lately if I have to go there better be a bathroom close by or I'm in trouble, lol!
